In the United States, as well as many other countries, an engagement ring is worn on the fourth finger of the left hand. This tradition is thought to be from the Romans, who believed this finger to be the beginning of the "vein of love," the vein that leads to the heart. The ring is a symbol of two peoples love and obligation towards each other. It is an important time in the couple's lives and therefore choosing that perfect ring is the first step towards building a life together and therefore a lot of emphasis is placed on getting it right. It is a representation of your love and dedication and hence an extremely important piece of jewelry. The classic engagement ring is composed of two parts: a diamond and a setting. For the best value, find the ring setting she will love, and then devote the remainder of your budget to a beautiful diamond.Diamonds are used the in most settings, mainly because of their durability and strength. These qualities are meant to symbolize the relationship, so the diamond is usually the centerpiece of the ring's setting.
