Did You Know: Wedding Rings
Did you know that Jewish couples can’t get married in adorned wedding bands? The wedding rings the bride and groom exchange have to be perfectly round with no stones or “breaks” in the circle. Many Jewish brides who want a diamond or decorative band will get married in their parents’ or grandparents’ wedding bands, which is a good cost saver as well as a nice family tradition if the bands get passed down from generation to generation. After the ceremony, the bride (or couple) can slip the bands they purchased on and give someone their ceremony-only bands to hold on to till after the wedding.
