Rings

Jewish wedding rings are circles of unadorned and unpierced metal, symbolizing the unbroken circle of marriage to her. The solidity of the Jewish ring is a symbol of the commitment to the marriage, making it whole and eternal. The rings are placed on the fight index finger during the ceremony, since that is the finger with an atery that leads directly to the heart. Normally, the wedding ring is moved to the traditional left hand “ring finger” during Yihud.
