What is certain is that in ancient times spouses documented their togetherness with a ring, even if it was mostly made of metals other than gold. In many cultures, the ring, as an object with no beginning and end, has something downright mystical about it. Many art works from painting and literature announce this. Just think of the fairy tales in which the ring fulfills your wishes, the “Lord of the Rings” or the ring parable from Lessing’s “Nathan the Wise”. The engagement ring that only the bride wears is also highly symbolic in love.
