When it comes to wedding rings, initially men are left out of the equation given the focus is traditionally directed to the engagement ring
Unfortunately, men can easily be more overlooked in this department and why so? They are making an equal commitment and attention should be paid to how they chose to decorate their ring finger. Though marriage itself can be perceived as a contract just as much as a union for love, wedding rings have a more romantic history. Though the cut, details and even placement of a wedding band has evolved through the years, it is believed that it was the Romans who cemented its positioning on the left ring finger. Despite having now been disproved, it was understood at the time that a vein connected the left ring finger to the heart, commonly referred to as the Vena Amoris or the Vein of Love. Hence the reasoning behind its placement.
It doesn’t get more romantic than that
