Engagement rings date back to Ancient Egypt as the circle was used to symbolize a never ending cycle and the space in it as a gateway. The first recorded diamond engagement ring was given to Mary of Burgundy by Archduke Maximilian of Austria. This first engagement ring was thin, and inlaid with diamonds in the shape of an ‘M’.
Today, engagement rings are chosen carefully, with a variety of diamond aspects to choose from.
