In the Middle Ages marriage was largely a financial arrangement and the engagement ring served as a crude sort of deposit on the bride. Arrangements for weddings were made far in advance so the groom presented the bride and her parents with a valuable wedding ring as a sign that he was committed to the marriage and would not back down. The family would safeguard the ring until the wedding when the ring would be presented to the bride. The ritual carried on but gained momentum in the 9th Century when Pope Nicolas I made a gold ring a wedding requirement as a way to show wealth to prove the grooms ability to care for a wife. The first recorded diamond engagement ring dates back to 1477 and was given to Mary of Burgandy by Archduke Maximillian of Austria.
One of the most important among them is the choice of the metal for the ring. According to the traditional concepts wedding rings are made up of gold and silver alloy. But these days the concept of the wedding bands have changed a lot and it is seen that designers prefer to make wedding rings of platinum titanium and other such precious metals. Metals like platinum and titanium are more durable and provide a better look to the ring than gold or silver. And to provide a classy look to the ring diamond setting is often used. Besides diamond there are also other precious stones like emerald ruby and Safire are also used for the making of the wedding bands.

Since Roman times wearing your wedding ring on the fourth finger is important because they believed the vena amoris a vein in the left ring finger connected directly to the heart. A slightly less romantic history traces back to times when weddings were primarily to connect families rather than for love and the exchange of valuables was a symbol of security to ensure the couple would be economically sound. Some of the classic options available in terms of the material the ring is made from include various qualities of gold silver platinum and titanium or even two different tones.
