Collection: Engagement Rings

The tradition of engagement rings dates back thousands of years, with its roots in ancient civilizations such as the Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans. The ancient Egyptians exchanged rings made from materials like woven reeds or leather, symbolizing eternity and the unending circle of love.

In ancient Rome, betrothal rings were given as a promise of marriage and were often made of iron, symbolizing strength and permanence. It wasn't until later that rings made of precious metals like gold became popular.

The tradition of diamond engagement rings as we know it today began in the 15th century when Archduke Maximilian of Austria presented a diamond ring to Mary of Burgundy upon their engagement. This sparked a trend among European nobility, and diamonds became a symbol of wealth and commitment.

However, it wasn't until the late 19th century that diamonds became more widely accessible due to diamond discoveries in South Africa and effective marketing campaigns by diamond companies like De Beers. The iconic slogan "A Diamond is Forever" coined in 1947 further solidified the association between diamonds and eternal love.

Today, engagement rings are deeply ingrained in many cultures around the world, symbolizing love, commitment, and the promise of a future together. While diamond rings remain popular, there's a growing trend towards more diverse gemstones and personalized designs, reflecting changing preferences and cultural influences.
