Engagement Rings over the Vein of Love

A man presents his prospective spouse with an engagement ring either as he proposes marriage or directly after she accepts his marriage proposal. (In some cultures, both men and women exchange engagement rings.) It represents a formal agreement of future marriage. The custom has a long and uneven history. In ancient Rome, it was thought that a vein in the fourth finger led directly to the heart. It was known as the vena amoris, the vein of love. And the engagement ring was placed there. Of course, the tradition continues.

Engagement Ring Styles

Engagement rings come in a variety of styles. White gold is generally favored for engagement rings, but several other options are available (yellow gold, pink gold or other precious metals). These "noble metals", which are solid and durable, are used to make engagement rings because they are the permanency symbol of marriage bonds.

Engagement rings are usually handmade in 18-carat gold. However, if you want gold with different carats, we will be able to meet your expectations as well. The spouses’ names or any other word or phrase you wish can also be engraved on the inside of the engagement ring.

For the diamond that will dazzle you, be amazed by the choice in terms of size, color, clarity and carat weight. It is worth noting that all our diamonds are GIA certified. Round brilliant cut diamonds are the most popular as they offer the maximum amount of sparkle.

If you wish, we can also add small diamonds to the main diamond or all around the ring. Diamond setting is carried out in a personalized way, to suit your preferences.

There are so many things to consider! It is best to come to the store to benefit from Graziella and Sergio's experience and skills. They will gladly create the jewel that is to your satisfaction.
