For many women, their engagement ring is the most precious piece of jewellery they own.
The history of the engagement ring and how it came to be a tradition is interesting and there is some debate over its origins with the Ancient Egyptians, Ancient Greeks and the Romans all credited by different sources as being the earliest adopters. Some even believe that the tradition came from an ad campaign run by De Beers in the 1930s.
