Historians believe the use of an engagement ring originated in ancient Rome. Supposedly, a woman wore a ring attached to a key indicating their husbands ownership. It's also said the practice of wearing a ring on the third finger dates back to ancient Egypt. This is because the Egyptians believed the vena amoris nerve connects directly to the heart. However, the first clear record of a diamond engagement ring being presented was in 1477 when an Austrian Duke commissioned one for Mary of Burgundy. Today, the purchase, presentation and adornment of an engagement ring is still highly significant. Therefore, taking such a history into account, we can see how important and symbolic the buying of an engagement ring is.
