If you have been with your significant other for a long time, then it must have come across your mind to ask her hand in marriage. As tradition would suggest, getting her an engagement ring is a must when you propose to her. But you might be thinking, “Are engagement rings still relevant in this day and age?”
With the pandemic still going on, it would be no surprise if you doubt buying an engagement ring. But one thing is for sure. An engagement ring is still one of the best symbols of your undying love for your partner.
Why engagement rings are still relevant
As you may already know, an engagement ring is what you give to your partner to tell her that you are now ready for a commitment on a higher level, that you are sure that she is the one you want to spend the rest of your life with. It is your first step before walking down the aisle and getting married.
How did the engagement ring become this symbol? Even way back, people gave something to their partner to show them how much they love them and how serious they are in their relationship.
The ring given to Mary of Burgundy by Archduke Maximillian in 1477 became a popular trend among European nobility. With an ad campaign, that is, “A diamond is forever” by Da Beers in the 1940s, the modern engagement ring became iconic.
Today the engagement ring has still retained its position as the number one symbol for everlasting love. It’s probably because of all those romantic films and songs that resonate in people’s minds.
No matter what generation you belong to, kneeling and proposing a ring will still be one of the dreams a lady would like to have in their lives.
But if that is not enough to convince you, here are a few more reasons.
Engagement rings are, in fact, the ultimate sign of commitment
It is effortless for someone to update their relationship status in social media from single to engaged by simply clicking a button in today’s digital age. But nothing says commitment like showing off the ring you got from your partner.
When you wear an engagement ring, people will automatically think that your heart already belongs to someone.
Engagement rings can last forever, just like your love
As cheesy as that sounds, to show someone a symbol of how much you love them will surely make their heart flutter and make them blush.
Engagement rings will always be a beautiful way of expressing your love to your partner, and if you have a diamond ring, you know that it can last forever, just like your love for each other.
Engagement rings will remind you of that particular moment in your life
Because of social media, men are sometimes pressured to make the perfect proposal. Still, in reality, if your partner truly loves you, they will surely appreciate the efforts you have made to ask for their hand in marriage.
And after you have made your proposal, you may sometimes see your partner smiling while looking at their ring. It’s incredible how this simple object can remind them of that particular moment in their life and tell them of all the reasons why they said yes.
Engagement rings will always be an iconic symbol of love. So when you ask your partner’s hand in marriage, be sure to have one ready. You will indeed send them to cloud nine when they see you kneeling with a ring on your hand.
