The Ring. From ancient Rome to the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

The Ring. From ancient Rome to the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
A ring is usually a band of precious metal that is worn on a finger of the hand as an ornament even if in recent years there are also versions for the feet.
The word ring seems to have different meanings, but the most common one derives from its form without beginning or end, the ring has always been a symbol of eternity.

From the Latin “anulus”, diminutive of “anus”, comes the Italian ring and is worn indifferently by men and women, can be made of metal, plastic, wood, bone, glass or other materials.

Most include, embedded in the main material, precious stones or small works of art in enamel or other materials.

Of course, a ring can be worn on any finger, in Western culture usually in the ring finger, especially in the case of an engagement ring.

In this case, the ring is worn on the ring finger of the left hand.

The most used types are the engagement ring and the wedding ring: originally worn only by women, now in current culture are often worn by both engaged couples (or spouses).

Since Roman times, it has been used in engagements and weddings as a wish for stability, with the name of vinculum eanulus pronubus, a meaning that is preserved until today.

The circle symbolizes the perfection and the image of authority, so the ring is considered as an amulet of power, strength, divinity, independence and security.

Engagement rings with diamonds

A diamond is forever, now it has become a way of saying, also because the word in Greek “adamas” means invincible, lasting love.

Among the most famous engagement rings is that of Grace Kelly received by Ranieri III of Monaco; the one given by Richard Burton to Liz Taylor, an emerald-cut diamond ring worth millions of dollars.

Coming to the present day there is that of David Beckham who wanted to draw personally for Victoria, a 3 carat marquise cut diamond; Angelina Jolie received a ring worth around $ 250,000 from Brad Pitt and Tomaso Trussardi donated a brilliant white gold ring to Michelle Hunziker.

Traveling from fairy tales to REAL reality, we can not forget the ring donated by Charles of England to Lady Diana who will then arrive to her son Prince William to be used as a promise to Kate Middleton, with 14 solitaire diamonds on a sapphire and white gold ring 18 carats.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, newlyweds in Windsor, are now the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The newlyweds at the reception wore a ring that belonged to Lady Diana: a simple and splendid aquamarine, so as to honor the tradition.
