Wedding Ring Symbolism: Meanings & Origin

10th December 2020

by Semrah

couple on their wedding day

For most, wedding rings represent the start of a new chapter in a couple’s life. The humble wedding ring has evolved throughout history to become what it is today. Wedding rings are still steeped in tradition even though they tend to have a modern appearance. There is no doubt that they serve as a beautiful emblem of love, but in this article, we explain more about wedding ring symbolism and meanings.

What is a wedding band?

A wedding band is a ring made from precious metal and exchanged between two people in a wedding ceremony. In the UK wedding bands are typically worn on the ring finger of the left hand. Women’s and men’s wedding bands differ slightly in appearance and weight. Both are usually crafted from precious metal and are simple in design. Modern wedding bands may also be adorned with diamonds or shaped to fit together with an engagement ring.

Why is the wedding band circular?

A wedding band is circular to fit the finger, but also as a symbol of infinity - as it has no beginning and no end. It represents eternal love between a couple, as just like the shape, it is never-ending. 

Wedding ring symbolism and meanings

Wedding rings symbolise eternal love and commitment within a relationship. This emblem of love is exchanged between two people on their wedding day and worn to show the world they are married. During the wedding service, the couple will say their vows to each other while exchanging rings. The vows include a promise to love each other no matter what and to be faithful and committed forever, and a wedding ring symbolises that promise. Some couples choose to engrave their wedding rings to incorporate a personal message.

Wedding ring materials meaning

The materials used for wedding rings symbolise strength and unbreakable love. Wedding rings are made out of precious metals that are tough to break or damage - representing the unbreakable love a married couple have for one another. 

Adding gemstones to wedding rings is not entirely a new thing. Diamond wedding rings have become increasingly popular in recent years, particularly for women’s wedding rings as they pair beautifully with almost any engagement ring. 

Wedding ring metal types

Wedding rings are crafted from precious metals such as white gold, yellow gold, rose gold and platinum. Yellow gold and white gold are considered traditional choices for wedding bands. Platinum has become the preferred option in recent years, possibly because platinum wedding rings are not only beautiful but also extremely durable. Rose gold wedding rings became popular by those looking for a fashionable alternative to more traditional precious metals. 

Diamond wedding rings

Diamond wedding rings are known for their beauty and radiance. While being a popular choice in recent years, diamonds have long been associated with love and romance. In particular, diamonds symbolise eternal love due to their strength and beauty, making them the perfect choice for wedding rings.
