About This Quiz

Rumor has it that back in 1477, the Archduke Maximillian of Austria commissioned the very first diamond engagement ring for Mary of Burgundy and a tradition was born. That was merely the start of the diamond ring, however. Prior to that, there had been an exceedingly long history of rings exchanged for betrothal that may date back to Ancient Egypt and and and Ancient Greeks as well. The ring has long been symbolic of eternity. It is a loop that never ends, after all. For this reason, rings seemed to match up perfectly with the idea of bonding yourself to another for eternity.

The Romans had a tradition of a bride wearing two rings. One was gold and to be worn in public while the other was iron and to be worn when you were doing some more industrial tasks around the house. Regardless of which culture adopted them and exactly how they went about producing or wearing them, the general idea has long been the same. The ring binds you to another. As such, it's kind of a big deal. It's the kind of thing you want to be perfect. Given that, if you design one right here and right now, we'll take that perfection one step further and even match you to your perfect prince! Just take the quiz and see!
