Rings, rings, rings ….

Did you know that the custom of giving and receiving finger rings dates back over approximately 6,000 years.

There have been found rings for example from the Egyptians, like the scarab ring, amazing!!!!!

When we talk about rings we have to talk about wedding rings!!! Even if I’m not a fan of them!!! I know I know it doesn’t sound good but it’s the reality!

I never use my wedding rings!! :S jeje is not that I don’t like them … but I mean why do  I have to use the same rings every day!!! :S I don’t know I feel much more attached to a pair of earrings that my husband gave me when we were at Rome 🙂

And also my husband himself lost his wedding ring!!! YES HI LOST IT!!!! Jajajaja and the funny part of this, is that he feels much more angry about it than me.

Well back to the point, wedding rings. The use of them was established during the World War II.

And why the fourth finger of the left hand (the ‘ring finger’)???? because is associated with an old belief that the left hand’s finger is connected by a vein directly to the heart: the vena amoris or vein of love. This idea was known in 16th and 17th century England, when Henry Swinburne referred to it in his book about marriage. It can be traced back to ancient Rome, when Aulus Gellius cited Appianus as saying the ancient Egyptians had found a fine nerve linking that particular finger to the heart.

Interesting right? Mmmmm maybe I should start wearing them jejejej

Anyway, here are my favorite rings!!!! 🙂
