Wedding rings are often spoken about as being a symbol of unity, a symbol of one unbroken circle of love. The circle, a symbol of the sun, of the moon, and of the universe. It is a symbol of wholeness, of perfection and of peace.
In some cultures wedding rings are worn on the right hand, in others the left. In some cultures the wedding band is worn closest to the heart with the engagement ring placed next to the wedding. And then others wear their rings in the order in which they were received: the engagement first (closest to the heart) and then the wedding band.
