    The other day I was reading a post and it dawned on me, I have no idea what each one is. I thought you just gave a girl a wedding ring, I never knew there was different types. Is there anyone here that could explain to me the different meanings or types of wedding rings, bands, and engagement rings? and why would you give one over the other? THanks

    The engagement ring is the main "rock" given to a girl when she is proposed to. The wedding band is added to the engagement ring to make the wedding ring. This is traditionally just a solid golden/silver band...however, anymore they tend to smaller "rocks" and gems decorating it. And a band is also given to a guy as his wedding "Ring"

    you dont have to do both. my folks just have bands, no engagement ring. tradtionally, engagement rings were given in exchange for her hand in marriage, and her dowery. thats a little outdated, but some people are stuck on it still.
