Ring – Way To A Girl’s Heart

by: Alyssa Benefield

I have never been a jewelry type of girl, I have always seemed to misplace all my jewelry when I wear accessories. It was till I got a ring with much meaning and love that I realized just how much a ring can mean.

Meaning And Significance Of A Ring

Let me first tell you, I do not know much about diamonds or metals or care about how much the jewelry I wear costs, so I won’t sit here and act like I know things I do not; but what I do know is how sentimental a ring can be when it signifies love or a promise. I have received two rings in my life one from my parents and the other for a ex long term partner. It was not till I received these rings that I began to be interesting the meaning of a ring. Why is it when you love someone you put a ring on them? And why is it on the left hand “ring finger”? Keeping these questions in the back of mind while I wore my beautiful sparkling ring I decided I would look into the answers.

It turns out that a ring is put on the person you love because it is a circle and a circle is never ending, which can signify a love or promise you make to that person. The reason it is worn on the left hand on the ring finger is because that is the only finger that has a vein running to your heart; I found this fascinating because I am a nursing student and am interested in anatomy.  This also made my rings even more special to me because every time I put it on my finger I understand that this gift signifies a meaning that no other gift can. It is connected to my heart, my thoughts, my memories and everything that our relationship stands for.

Every Ring Tells A Story

Anyone can sell you a ring with the most precious metals and the most expensive diamonds, or tell you facts about how a ring is made; but can someone explain the meaning and the importance behind every ring. Think about the fact that every ring has a story, every ring signifies something when it is given to a loved one.

My ring given to me by my parents has a different meaning than the ring I was given by my ex-lover, yet both had an equal importance to me. Both stood for love, but different kinds of love.

Conclusion

The point I’m trying to get to is rings are much more than a fashion statement when given by the right person. This makes them a very desirable gift for someone you may want to show is important to you, because every day when they look down and see that ring it is much more than a beautiful piece of jewelry; it is a beautiful sign of love that is placed so beautiful above the vein that keeps you alive that is connected to your heart, memories, and love.

Love You Tomorrow was founded by Sue Fox, a jewelry and wedding enthusiast from New York. Her father, Simon, was a jewelry appraiser, whose family had deep roots in the mining industry. Sue grew up schooled in the different properties of gems and metals, as well as in the care and appraisal of jewelry. She was most fascinated by how different gems, materials, cuts, and settings could be put together in endless combinations to make thousands of unique pieces of jewelry. Best of all, each piece was distinct in its purpose and design to match the personality of the wearer. Love You Tomorrow began as a passion project in 2016. This was around the time when many of Sue’s friends and family members were getting married. Knowing her expertise, they often sought out her advice on wedding and engagement rings. The blog started out as a place to house Sue’s now in-demand knowledge. Her first posts were buying guides for diamonds, roundups of her favorite ring recommendations around the web, and practical tips about choosing the right gemstone for you. It became apparent pretty quickly that the most common visitors to her blog were couples in the market for wedding and engagement rings. Since rings were only one item on an engaged couple’s to-do list, Sue also began to receive inquiries about how the perfect rings would fit into the rest of the whole wedding picture. Since then, Sue’s vision for the blog expanded to become a one-stop shop for other resources on weddings in general. Today, Love You Tomorrow is a wedding blog that features not just Sue’s expertise on wedding and engagement rings, but also insights from her “Wedding Party”, a team of wedding experts and enthusiasts who write guides, recommendations, and tips for happy couples looking to tie the knot. Sue is now currently based in Carmel-by-the-Sea on the Monterey Peninsula in California. She lives with her husband Jess, and their three dogs, Sleepy, Dopey, and Doc.
