{Bridal News} Diamonds are forever

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, which is why, when it comes to engagement or wedding rings, no expense should be spared!


These days brides are thrilled with the idea that they get more sparkly diamonds on their wedding day. After all, a diamond-encrusted wedding ring is the perfect accompaniment to any engagement ring. And nowadays brides are lucky enough to be spoilt for choice when it comes to picking out their bridal bling – gold, white gold, platinum, 18 karat or more – there’s lots to chose from!


Thankfully, we’ve come a long way from when ancient Egyptians wove their wedding bands from plants such as the rushes and reeds that grew along the River Nile. Because these materials weren’t very strong, they were soon substituted for rings made from leather, bone or ivory. The idea behind it being, the more expensive the material, the more love shown to the receiver. So the value of the ring also demonstrated the wealth of the giver.
This tradition was later incorporated into the Christian and Jewish wedding ceremonies – making it common for a bride to be given a ring when she got married. These days it’s normal for the groom to also be given a ring when a couple marries. While men can be equally picky about their wedding band, we’re certain that even the fussiest of prospective grooms would find something to love from the range of men’s wedding bands from Arthur Kaplan Jewellers.

2But it’s not all about the bling: this gorgeous wedding set, also from Arthur Kaplan, is simply stunning. The circle of the wedding band is a symbol for eternity. A circle has no beginning or end – making it the perfect symbol for infinity. 3*All pictures of rings supplied by Arthur Kaplan.
