Historians believe that ancient Egypt started the tradition of the wearing of wedding bands. Archeological discoveries from up to 3,000 years ago has lead them to this conclusion; the imagery on artifacts and translated hieroglyphics allow experts to learn about how their society viewed the circle as a symbol of endless love between a man and woman. Also, the Egyptian people wore wedding bands on the ring finger of their left hands; they thought this finger ran a vein directly connecting it to the heart, a notion that was later picked up by the people of Ancient Rome.
