The First Engagement Ring


#history The first engagement ring in history
There are data that it was in 1477 when Maximilian of Austria first presented a diamond engagement ring to Maria, daughter of the Duke of Burgundy.

This Archduke fell madly in love with Mary, who was the official heir duchess of his father's lands and had hundreds of suitors who suited his rank. In search of conquering her, he ordered an extraordinary and unique ring to be made for her.

The tradition of the engagement ring comes from ancient Egypt, where future brides wore it on their left ring finger, since there is the amoris vein, which is nothing more than a vein that connects that finger to the heart.
