Rebekah got a nice bunch of jewelry from Abraham. The Israelites got most of the Egyptian's jewelry when they left.
Is.61:10 "as a bride adorns herself with jewels."
The Prodigal son was given a ring by his father. The ring is a symbol of belonging. Even a slave who was willing to stay with his master was given a ring in his ear symbolizing his willful submission to his master.

**
they symbolise paganism traditions..its like hving a ring on the pigs snout..Adm n Eve never wore a ring..Definitely not a Biblical tradidition**

But Rebecca was given a nose ring for an engagement present. So engagement rings are Biblical--as long as they are worn in the nose.

Jack: I am edxperiencing the same censoring business..I have posted heaps of biblical replies and nothing..it seems only the favoured insulting ones like Lee and Andrea n Mima gets free rein..am wondering if they are moderators themselves and the same one person..lets see if this post gets allowed..if not,then we know i am right...

**Actually, Genesis 38:18-20 is a tale about Judah deciding to see a harlot, but not being able to pay her immediately, so he gave her his signet ring as collateral until he could pay the price. This has nothing to do with wedding rings.**

I said the same things, only I used the Biblical words WHORE and WHOREDOM, but it didn't get posted.

Why when I quote the Bible does it get censored?

I am stating the eternal unbreakable Holy Union of the Trinity. No where did I state that the Father and the Holy Spirit were as you put it, two different persons, they are one and the same. The wedding ring because it has no ending, symbolize eternity, an eternal union of the couple to be married, becoming one. And your examples of John 10:30 nicely confirm this. God bless.

I dont thing so brother

Shawn, How can the Father and the Holy Spirit be two different persons???? Anyway, who was Jesus' Father? Please read Luke 1:35 and John 10:30.

Yes wedding rings are in the bible. Genesis 38:18-20. I don't know about them being traditional or not. But they symbolize two people (man and woman) married. A ring is a circle of an never ending love. This is the only verse that gives an example of a ring used for marriage.

Wedding rings, because they have no ending, symbolize eternity.

If they are Biblical, they're not exclusively so--the Romans used them as well.

Wedding rings are no more (or less) Biblcal than are church buildings, revivals, altar calls, invitation hymns, or even hymnals and cantatas.

Nobody here seems to have scruples about them. Why wedding rings?

I do not recall it being in the scriptures? But just as a circle is unbroken, a circular formed wedding ring representing the eternal unbreakable union of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. It is a symbol of your vows that youre Holy Union shall parallel the unbreakable union of the Holy Trinity?
