Engagement Ring – Originated in Ancient Israel

Did you know that the giving of an Engagement ring originated in ancient Israel?  Jewish law dating back to the time of Abraham called for an agreement, the giving of an item of monetary value to the chosen bride, to validate the betrothal intent of a young man and woman. In time, the ring became the most common symbol of monetary value that was used for the completion of an engagement agreement.   The engagement ring came to represent the circle of life and eternal love.

The practice of the presentation of an engagement ring to a woman was adopted by the Greeks and later by the Romans who made the ritual of using an engagement ring into law.  The custom grew in time and spread around the world as the symbol of love and intent to marry between a couple.
