Betrothal rings were used during Roman times, but weren't used in the western world until about the 13th century. “The first well-documented use of a diamond ring to signify engagement was by the Archduke Maximilian of Austria in imperial court of Vienna in 1477, upon his betrothal to Mary of Burgundy.
Now, 80% of American women are offered a diamond ring to signify engagement.”
Imagine if your future husband to be presented you with a thimble and was like let’s get married. Frankly I would laugh and say yes. But I know some people who would punch them in the face. Either way you put it, engagement rings carry along with them a lovely sentiment. Love embodied in a material item forever and ever.
