Two-Halves Wedding Rings 

July 13, 2021 | By | Reply More

The history of wedding rings is a fascinating one. In this edition, we’ll discover where wedding bands originated!

TWO-HALVES ONE FLESH WEDDING BAND RING, 14K TWO-TONE GOLD

Egyptian pharaohs over 3,000 years ago used the ring to represent eternity. Since they worshiped the sun and the moon, the circle was an appropriate symbol. The hole in the center—so they thought—represented a gateway to the unknown. 

The rolling wave design in our beautiful 2-halves ring is representative of the one-flesh idea presented in the Bible, where it says “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh” (Genesis 2:24). This is perfect advice from God: a man must leave his father and his mother and become one with his wife in the new bond of marriage. Who can argue with God’s Word? At every wedding ceremony, a new family is formed and our primary responsibility becomes our new family, started by husband and wife. The two different colors are equally solid 14k gold, and the waves pattern indicates how closely a man and woman were designed to fit.

The band measures 7mm in width, available for both men and women. It comprises a yellow gold half and a white gold half that are forged together for the ultimate symbol of unity. It comes with our Signature Comfort Fit design. This one and more like it can be found in our collection of Two-Tone Wedding Bands.

After Egypt was conquered by Alexander the Great, his Greek empire adopted the tradition of giving rings to the one you loved. Many of the rings given to lovers depicted Eros or Cupid, the “god of love.”

Today, our wedding bands reflect a larger aspect of the tradition in that they represent a union of hearts and souls in the holy covenant of marriage. the Bible tells us, “What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder” (Mark 10:9).

This gorgeous wedding band is a case in point. Handcrafted with attention to detail, the simple, gently waving pattern comprises two halves and then joins them together. May your marriage be so! This one is part of our collection of White Gold Wedding Bands.

14K WHITE AND ROSE GOLD TWO-HALVES WEDDING BAND RING

The tradition of giving rings to our loves was kept through yet another transition as Rome conquered the Greek Empire. However, their preferred metal was iron and copper in marriage ceremonies. A key motif was carved into the ring that a bride wore, symbolizing that now the woman had control over all the household goods. By the 2nd century, most wedding bands were being made in gold.

Our Lord’s holy words through Solomon’s writing tells us “He who finds a wife finds what is good and receives favor from the LORD” (Proverbs 18:22). And our modern take on the ancient wedding ring beautifies the tradition by crafting it in gold. We prefer that over iron and copper any day!

This beautiful masterpiece is today’s representation of what we have in store for you in our collection of Rose Gold Wedding Bands.

Gold took on a luxurious style from the 3rd and 4th century. The wealthier a person was, the more ornate the ring. A bit later, Romans began personalizing their rings with portraits of themselves carved into the bands.

From the beginning, it was God’s purpose to create one perfect flesh from two bodies, hearts, and souls. “And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him” (Genesis 2:18). Our tastes have simplified and our sense of beauty is more in symbolic designs, such as the undulating line that shows we don’t wander from each other even in the turbulent times.

This one is fashioned from two separate rings, perfectly matched, to represent that you have found that perfect other. A most significant way to state what Solomon said in the Song of Songs, chapter 3 and verse 4, “I have  found him whom my soul loveth: Celebrate your union with this or another splendid wedding band from our collection of Yellow Gold Wedding Bands.

Stay tuned for our historical journey into the tradition of wedding bands!
