“Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.”

“How did engagement rings come to be?” It is believed that the tradition of engagement rings dates back to Roman times in which wives would wear small rings attached to keys, indicating their husband’s ownership since at the time, women were considered property.

However the first diamond ring recorded in history was back in 1477 when Archduke Maximillian of Austria gave his fiancee, Mary of Burgundy a diamond ring.
