The great symbolism of diamond engagement rings

Although engagement rings and other forms of betrothal jewelry have been used for thousands of years, the first recorded use of a diamond engagement ring dates back to 1477 when Archduke Maximilian of Austria proposed to Mary of Burgundy, a duchess and heiress of vast wealth. Ever since then, men have presented a diamond ring to their intended to symbolize eternal love and devotion.



Modern grooms have considerably more diamond engagement ring options available to them than Archduke Maximilian had all those years ago. It is now possible to specify the shape, clarity, color, carat weight and cut of a diamond to ensure that your bride's ring will be everything she could hope for.
