Although the use of mens wedding rings is becoming very common these days is relatively new and not yet fully accepted by many people changed.

It is traditional for a woman to wear wedding rings almost since history began and there are records of exchange rings at wedding ceremonies way back to the days of ancient Egypt. However, it is rare for a man to wear a wedding ring following the marriage ceremony until after the Second World War.

Many people have suggested that this was for purely economic reasons and it is only the relative affluence that many societies now enjoy that has made this practice possible. There are undoubtedly some validity in this argument and in fact may be an important reason for men not previously wearing a wedding ring, but certainly not the only reason.

Wearing a wedding ring mean stating publicly that you are married and, while this is rarely seen as a problem for women, many men are less happy to announce that they were married. This is undoubtedly changing today, but it remains a strong influence for many men, while others only use them when they fit ring and remove it if it does not.

As an interesting aside, men in Greece and Italy are often given “puzzle” wedding rings by their wives. This ring is formed of a series of nested metal ring, which must be arranged in a predetermined order to form a single ring, which means that the ring can not be quickly and easily removed or replaced.

For some men, the wedding ring is seen as part of the jewelry and wearing a wedding ring is considered in the same way they see who wore a pair of earrings. For many men wearing jewelery is just something men and wedding rings are no exception. Once again, this is something that is becoming less of a problem over time and, while the use of earrings may still be a little far for most men, is often considered to be acceptable for a man to wear a ring, bracelet or necklace around her neck today.
