HISTORY OF ENGAGEMENT RINGS

de bene esse: literally, of well-being, morally acceptable but subject to future validation or exception

There's much more to the history of diamond engagement rings, and in fact, the diamond industry is considered one of the most powerful monopolies in modern history. Engagement rings started their history as symbols of subjugation. Prehistoric cavemen tied cords around their mates ankles, wrists and waist to bring her spirit under his control. Turkish puzzle rings were given by suspicious husbands to tag members of his harem and ensure faithfulness while he was away. And Roman custom was to give wives a ring attached to small keys, symbolizing a husband’s legal ownership of his wife. link
