Some believe that the oldest recorded exchange of wedding rings comes from ancient Egypt, about 4800 years ago. Sedges, rushes and reeds, growing alongside the well-known papyrus were twisted and braided into rings for fingers another decorative ornament was worn by the women in those days who believed circles were symbols of eternity. Wedded couples exchanged rings made out of braided reeds. These were worn on the left-hand ring finger, which apparently had a vein that ran directly to the heart, later named Vena amoris.
This ring is given as a symbol of love and friendship – but it is also commonly used as a wedding ring in Ireland. It may also be passed down from family member to family member through the generations. On the ring, the hands denote friendship, the heart symbolises love, while the crown is a sign of loyalty.
