An engagement is one of the biggest commitments in your life, binding the strong, unique and forever love you have with someone special. An engagement ring reflects this and is also a true symbol of love. It's the time in your life when you're ready to take the next big step in your relationship and truly express your life-long commitment to one another. They are a material representation of the intention to spend the rest of your life together. Engagement rings are worn on the fourth finger on your left hand because that specific finger contains a vein that is directly connected to the heart.
