Marriage is both a sacrament and an occasion. An oath because it’s a commandment and a way of telling people that a man and a woman could be united with their love before the eyes of God. Seemingly, it’s also an occasion because families and relatives gather together to witness it, combined with a banquet and all types of merry-making.

Weddings cannot be complete without wedding rings. In many parts of Australia especially in Sydney, a lot of jewellers have shops lined up on the streets to wait for lovely couples to walk-in,  ask for the price and later, purchase a ring they like. Most often, would-be grooms and brides order a wedding ring months before the most important event in their lives.

Let us explore the different kinds or types of wedding rings in Sydney.

Ring types

  • The simple yet elegant classic solitaire wedding ring – It looks like some couples would go for the “oldies but goodies” stuff on the day of their wedding. The kind of idea that whatever has aged will always be the best.
  • The amour cut diamond wedding ring – tiny diamond cuts are embedded and lined up in a crooked way as if following a river trail. Inside of it are the marks of the engraved precious stones, serving as a memory of what’s on top of everything.
  • The yellow gold-diamond wedding ring – Two of the most precious stones combined together like a man and a woman in matrimony. The ring is rounded up with little diamonds in four circles following the ring’s circumference. On top of it is the round cut Julia stone.
  • The heart-shaped promise ring- Ideal for very young couples in love. A silver-plated ring engraved with marks that signifies the beats and sounds of a happy heart.
  • The Moissanite simple solitaire ring- It signifies true happiness knowing that a man or a woman is chosen to love each other forever. It’s like the single diamond on the ring that stands with pride and glory.
  • The Princess cut white diamond ring- It’s perfectly plated with rhodium sterling silver surrounded with complex and abstract shapes that represents the ability to understand the one who wears it no matter what the cost.
  • The interchangeable, two-tone, round cut diamond ring – a jewel that represents life’s complexities and of course the woman’s fickle-mindedness that needs unconditional understanding and empathy in times of woes or worry.
  • The romantic heart-cut diamond wedding ring – A jewel that represents the greatest emotion that mankind could ever have. A love that lasts a lifetime with that special person in your life which is your spouse.
  • The Princess wedding cut diamond ring with blue sapphire – represents that no sadness or woes could ever stop two people from loving each other for eternity. They will survive for the reason that they have each other’s back, loving and supporting till the end of time.

What does the ring in a wedding symbolise?

A circle has no beginning and an end and is, therefore, a symbol of infinity. It is endless, eternal, just the way love should be. For the many, the wedding ring is worn on the fourth finger of the left hand. This is because the vein in this finger is believed to lead directly to the wearer’s heart.
