Engagement Ring Or Wedding Ring: What's The Difference?

Over time, the traditions around marriage have become somewhat simpler and in today's wedding vocabulary, we often tend to confuse the engagement ring with the wedding ring. But what is it that really sets them apart?

Engagement, A Promise Of Marriage  :

Nowadays, traditions tend to be lost and the world of marriage is one of the first to suffer. So much so that some even come to confuse engagement with marriage. However, these are two very distinct concepts.

In the tradition, remember that before going to marriage, the future groom asks for the hand of his beloved. If she says yes, they promise each other their intention to get married: this is called an engagement. By extension, engagement designates the entire period between this promise and the marriage itself, between the unofficial “yes” and the official “yes”.

Ring Or Wedding Ring, What's The Difference?

You will therefore have understood the difference between an engagement rings and a wedding ring. The first is the manifest expression of love between the bride and groom. It testifies to a deep and unconditional attachment. In a couple, the moment when the man asks for the hand of his future wife is one of the richest in emotion.

This is why engagement rings are often much more precious than wedding rings which, in turn, symbolize only the formalization of the act in the eyes of the law or of a god. This is because wedding rings are usually only made up of a simple gold, platinum or silver ring, while engagement rings are most often adorned with precious stones or diamonds - like the ones you can see in the picture below.

The Symbolism Around The Engagement Ring :

As we explained, the engagement ring symbolizes the determination of the bride and groom to cherish each other for life. But this has not always been the case. Among the Greeks, the first to have known a similar tradition, rings were offered as a sign of affection and protection, but not only with a view to marriage. They could just as well be offered as a sign of friendship.

It was during the rebirth that ring began to be set with precious stones. Brilliance was the guarantor of harmony after marriage. The diamond, highly coveted in wedding jewelry, is still considered a symbol of peace, purity and innocence.
