The Engagement Ring
A Historic Tradition
Engagement rings are timeless symbols of true love and deeply personal representations of affection. Many choose to believe that engagement rings are part of an ingenious marketing campaign by jewelry stores in the 1930’s to sell more diamonds. However, the tradition of presenting a prospective partner with an “engagement ring” dates back even further.
The Beginning of the Diamond Engagement Ring
In Roman times, it was discovered that a woman would be presented with a ring connected to a set of small keys. Later, in the 1400s, Archduke Maximillian of Austria requested a custom-designed ring for his future bride, Mary of Burgundy. Diamond engagement rings immediately increased in demand and became a fast trend among persons of nobility. Over time, rings were crafted in different shapes and designs with different gemstones, customized specifically for each wearer.
The Diamond Engagement Ring Grows in Popularity
More and more jewelers opened shops to keep up with the ever-increasing demand for partner-specific engagement rings. One of the most popular jewelry stores of the time opened more diamond mines, with the specific purpose of harvesting more gemstones. Unfortunately, the United States was facing a tough economic situation in the 1930’s, where basic necessities were greatly scarce. To increase demand, jewelry stores saturated the market by covering famous actors and actresses with diamonds. This led to a 50% sales increase in under five years and solidified the diamond as a symbol of marriage and everlasting love.
