The Wedding Ring

Engagement rings are often worn on the fourth finger of the left hand because the ancient Greeks maintained that that finger contains the vena amoris, or the “vein of love,” that runs straight to the heart. The first recorded wedding rings appear in ancient Egypt, with the circle representing eternity as well as powerful sun and moon deities.

These facts make it much more favorable to wear a wedding ring or engagement ring.  Many feel like the ring were signs of ownership, but these ancient facts show that that ring has a much deeper meaning and connection to the universe.  

And the circle is considered sacred :)
