the first diamond ring was Renaissance. The first well-documented use of a diamond ring to signify engagement was by the Archduke Maximilian of Austria in the imperial court of Vienna in1477, upon his betrothal to Mary of Burgundy. This then influenced those of higher social class and of significant wealth to give diamond rings to their loved ones.
It was only in the early 20th century that the tradition of male wedding rings as we know it began. During the World, Wars soldiers would wear wedding rings as a means of remembering their loved ones.
