The Tradition of Engagement Rings

Tradition of engagement rings is longstanding and it means if the woman accepts the proposal of marriage, she wears the ring throughout engagement. This tradition dates back to the Classical era when there was believed to be a vein running straight from the left fourth finger to the heart. This finger is called "ring finger" and it is still traditional one on which we wear engagement rings. Later the tradition became extremely widespread in Western cultures though it may have some regional differences.
