Ring. Tuesday , October 17th , 2017 - 15:32:09 PM
Nothing says engaged like an engagement ring. For such a simple piece of jewelry, that ring really does say a lot! It says, I love you to the woman of your dreams. It says she is mine to other potential rivals. And it is a promise to love her forever. That is heady responsibility for a strip of metal and a stone to fulfill. So, with all of its importance, how do you go about choosing the perfect engagement ring?
Although a ring is absolutely necessary in a Church-of-England marriage, it may be of any metal and of any size. Some years since, a ring of brass was used at Worcester at a wedding before the registrar, who was threatened with proceedings for not compelling a gold to be employed. A story is told of two paupers, who came to the church and requested to be married with the church key, as the parochial authorities had not furnished them with a ring. The clerk, feeling some delicacy about using the key, fetched an old curtain ring from his own house, and with that article the marriage was celebrated.
There are several good places to find antique rings. Antique stores often carry jewelry. Some dealers are more knowledgeable than others about the details and value of rings from each period. In some cases, you ca get a really good deal. Some stores under sell jewelry because they don't know its true value. The ring may not come with a certificate. If not, have it independently appraised for insurance.
