Wedding Rings, This ceremony was already observed by the Romans before the introduction of Christianity and was also known to the Jews. The use of the rings was very widespread among the Romans, not only as an ornament, but in order to seal the letters, instruments and other elements, because they each had their seal open and they used to give each other in the celebration of their contracts. From here came the custom of giving his ring the husband to the wife in pledge and sign of the betrothal that contracted. So, the ring was a sign of the promise of marriage and with its delivery and receipt the husband was assured to the wife, joining with this pledge their hearts. The Christians wear it on the ring finger, finger closest to the little finger, from the left hand, because there is a vein in this finger that reaches the heart "vein of love", according to Saint Isidore. The wedding ring in the time of Pliny the Elder was made of iron and had no stone, but in the second century the church was already made of gold and they used to adorn it with stones and engravings.
