Engagement Ring

June is a month of weddings and engagements.  So, in honor of romance, let’s wonder about the engagement ring. The ritual of the ring probably dates back as far ad the 15th century. The ring, a circle symbolizing eternity, was a public pledge that the marriage contract would be honored and the stone may have been meant as partial payment for the bride.

The diamond rock that you could probably skate on is more of an invention by DeBeers and has less to do with your eternal love than DeBeers’ eternal bank account.
