Ceremonial Wedding Rings by Yossi Swed

Ceremonial wedding rings from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries were usually gold. The house-like structure may have symbolized the Temple in Jerusalem or the home the couple would build and share. The rings belonged to either the family or the community at large and were lent to the bride for her wedding day. Later the groom gave her a plain band. The tops open to display a concealed compartment, possibly meant to hold the actual wedding band. These rings are replicas, coming from Russia and Poland.
