The Ring

Where did the idea of a wedding ring come from? Why do people wear it on the left hand as opposed to the right? Why the third finger? The answers to these questions can be found here.

It is interesting to note that although the Bible makes no mention of wedding rings, they are used in virtually every Christian wedding ceremony.

My parents never wear their wedding rings, I think the fact they've been married 26 years speaks louder than a piece of jewlery.
