What Does a Gold Wedding Ring Mean?
Wedding rings have been around since forever. The ring itself symbolizes togetherness, an alliance between two people who promise to love and care for each other. But the shape and the metal of the ring also have their own meanings. The circle is an ancient symbol that represents infinity. It's a loop that never ends. The circular wedding ring also means continuity, eternity, completion, and perfection.
Gold rings, on the other hand, have their own meanings. First of all, gold is a precious metal that requires a lot of effort to find and process, making it even more valuable. Second, it's durable. Like many other metals, gold is resilient, and it can stand the test of time. It doesn't lose any of its beauty with passing time. In ancient times, gold wedding rings also represented wealth and status, when gold was even rarer and only in the upper classes' reach. But after the 1800's as more gold mines were discovered around the world, gold rings became more popular among all social classes.
Today, the metal preferences in rings wary; the rings can be gold, rose gold, silver or platinum, but the wedding ring itself symbolizes the same thing: eternal commitment.
