Why do we wear wedding bands on the fourth finger of the left hand?  This tradition originated thousands of years ago when it was believed that the fourth finger contained a vein that lead directly to the heart.  The origin of wedding bands dates back about 4,800 years to ancient Egypt. Sedges, rushes and reeds were twisted and braided into rings and worn as a symbol of marriage.  Well, we’ve come along way since braiding reeds into bands.  We now adorn our fingers with beautiful gemstones set in platinum or gold.  Lets take a look at the latest styles in wedding bands and you’ll be saying “I Do!” to these exquisite rings.

Eternity bands are a classic look that will never go out of style.  You will love this band 25 years from now as much as you love it today.  These diamond eternity bands by JB Star are stunning.
