Ethnic Wedding Bands

Rituals and ceremonies are passed on from generation to generation. As far as engagement and marriage are concerned, it is no different. Everywhere in the world, people interpret this unique event in their own way. Sometimes even on a local or family level. Similarly in Africa, where different traditions exist between different tribes in the same country or region. But one thing stands out: buying a ring for the marriage proposal or the marriage ceremony is not common. The ring finger in many Western cultures, the ring finger is designated as the fourth finger on the left hand. The tradition of wearing a wedding ring on this digit originated from the belief that this finger has a vein running directly to the heart. As African Americans, we find ourselves between cultures trying to find ways to fuse these cultures to find a unique way to "marry the two" Many companies are now providing jewelry that incorporates African symbolism and cultural beauty. Jendayi Collections is one of those providers. If you are looking for a small but meaningful way to add symbolic culture to your wedding, this might just be the way!
