Rings first became popular around the medieval period... all classes of people wore rings, from the richesst to the poorest. The materialss that the rings were made of ranged from iron to gold. It wasn't until the fourteenth century that faceted jewels were added to the design process of rings. The history of the diamond engagement ring is one that is a combination of myth, fantasy and fact. The first recorded diamond engagement ring was given in an exchange between Mary of Burgundy, and her fiance' Archduke Maximillian of Austria. During this time, diamonds were thought to have magical powers that related to love, purity and fidelity.
