Post What is the Difference Between Engagement Rings and Wedding
Engagement rings are different from wedding rings primarily in that they are worn before a legal or symbolic marriage ceremony. They are often bought before the wedding rings as well, although some people choose matching sets that are purchased together. Engagement rings tend to be flashier and more expensive than wedding rings. Both rings have a number of associated meanings, including commitment to one's partner, and people usually wear them together on the same finger. The modern person who wears an engagement ring has agreed to marry someone else. The ring is a way of non-verbally stating commitment to one's partner, although this commitment does not necessarily equate to sexual exclusivity. The commitment, like the ring, is not supposed to have a beginning or end. Someone who puts on a wedding ring expresses the same commitment, but the ring signifies that the wearer has been legally tied to his or her partner and, generally, that a wedding ceremony also has taken place.
