The tradition of engagement rings actually dates back to the early Egyptian period. Rings made out of braided reeds were exchanged and worn on the same finger as it is today. In the Roman times, rings were given in lieu of money or gifts. Rather than a profession of their love, it was about the legal binding agreement between the couple to be married. It was only later that diamonds began appearing in the rings resulting in the traditions that have been passed down today.
