Wedding Ring FAQs
What are the origins of wedding rings?
Wedding rings have a rich and interesting history, with their origin dating all the way back to around 5000 years ago in ancient Egypt. During this time period, people would often exchange ‘rings of love’ that were made from woven reeds and hemp. The Egyptians saw this marriage ring as a powerful symbol of eternal love, much like we do today, and also wore it on the fourth finger of their left hand, as they believed that there was a ‘vein of love’ that ran from this finger to the heart. Learn more about the history of wedding rings here.
Which finger should I wear my wedding ring on?
The ring finger, which is the fourth finger of the left hand, has remained as one of the most popular and traditional places to wear a wedding band in the UK. However, there are many modern, alternative, and trendy ways to wear a wedding ring such as on different fingers, on a chain around the neck, and even mixed, matched and stacked alongside existing rings, including engagement and eternity rings. It is a completely personal decision as to where you and your partner decide to wear your wedding ring, but the ring finger is the most common place!
Do couples' wedding rings need to match?
This is a decision that is completely personal to you and your partner, but it is not necessary for your wedding rings to be identical. Whether a couple decides to express their own unique style through different wedding ring types, or opt for the same style band, or just have a matching feature such as an engraving, they are all designed to represent the special bond between two people.
Should my wedding ring be the same precious metal as my engagement ring?
Whether you decide to match the metals of your engagement and wedding rings comes down to personal preference. You may decide to keep the same precious metal choice to create an elegant, subtle feel, or mix and match different colours for a more unique and contemporary look. Book a one-to-one appointment with Oscar & Olivia today, and we will help you to find the perfect wedding ring that perfectly suits your engagement ring.
What is a diamond eternity ring?
An eternity ring is a diamond circulated band that is a customary first anniversary gift between a married couple as a celebration of the time that they have spent together as newlyweds. Another common occasion in which an eternity ring is gifted is to commemorate the birth of a couple’s first child. This would be the perfect opportunity for the inscription of a name, date, or motif on the inside of the band to commemorate these special occasions, which you can discover more about by reading our wedding ring engraving guide.
Whatever the occasion, a diamond eternity ring would be the perfect addition to your wedding and engagement ring stack. Browse our beautiful selection of ladies diamond wedding rings at Oscar & Olivia Jewellery.
Can the diamonds in my wedding ring be lab grown?
Lab grown diamonds, also known as man-made or synthetic diamonds, are gemstones that are grown within a highly controlled, laboratory environment using cutting-edge technology. There are many benefits to choosing to go lab grown, such as cost effectiveness, sustainability improvements, and ethical reasoning, which you can learn more about here.
Here at Oscar & Olivia Jewellery, we have a great selection of diamond wedding rings and eternity rings for you to choose from. Browse our range online, and book your one-to-one appointment today. Although our prices displayed online refer to natural diamonds, you can get in touch about your lab grown diamond options by contacting us. We look forward to hearing from you!
How often should I have my wedding rings cleaned?
We recommend coming in to have your wedding ring professionally cleaned and polished every 6-12 months. This ensures that your band will maintain optimum shine and stay in great condition. You can learn more about the cleaning and polishing services offered at Oscar & Olivia here.
