Wedding Ring Symbolism

Wedding rings in themselves are symbolic, but other symbols often accompany them.

  • The European tradition is one of engraving of the name of one’s fiancé, along with the date of the marriage, on the inside of the ring.
  • Probably the most imposing ring of all times was that used in Hebrew weddings because it was so large and unwieldy. This Jewish wedding ring was actually shaped like the dome of the Jewish Temple; it could not be worn as we think of wearing a ring today. Since it was only used in a small portion of the ceremony and then removed, the “wedding ring” was often the property of the synagogue and borrowed the event.
  • Precious stones were very popular. In Victorian times, different stones were often used to spell out words of love, such as L (lapis lazuli), O (opal), V (verde antique), M (marcasite), and E (emerald), which spelled out LOVE ME.
  • One other tradition was that of wearing a ring set with a different stone for each day of the week. This was based on the belief that planet gods, who each favored a particular stone, controlled the days. The stones reportedly associated with each day or astral body vary (and sometimes conflict), depending on the specific belief system. Gems that have been associated with each include:
    • Sunday (Sun): Diamond, Pearl, Ruby, Red Garnet
    • Monday (Moon): Pearl, Emerald, White coral, Moonstone
    • Tuesday (Mars): Ruby, Red coral, Topaz
    • Wednesday (Mercury): Emerald, Amethyst, Peridot, Jade, Turquoise
    • Thursday (Jupiter): Cornelian, Yellow Sapphire, Yellow Topaz
    • Friday (Venus): Diamond, Emerald, Emerald, Sapphire, White Topaz, Ruby
    • Saturday (Saturn): Blue Sapphire, Turquoise, Amethyst, Tourmaline
  • One technique that evoked mystery was to combine letters that seemed to mean nothing, but were actually two names, one reading from left to right and the other from right to left.
  • Combining metals is a more recent phenomenon, such as artistically combining gold and iron to signify the combining strength and beauty.
