Slavic wedding rings

A wed­ding is one of the few rit­u­als that is per­formed by absolute­ly all peo­ples of any nation­al­i­ty. Some­where the wed­ding cer­e­mo­ny looks more tra­di­tion­al, some­one unusu­al. But the solem­ni­ty of mar­riage is always observed. One of the most beau­ti­ful and seri­ous is the Slav­ic wed­ding. And it’s not even always in the process itself, as in out­fits and jew­el­ry. Here the bride is the very embod­i­ment of fem­i­nin­i­ty, and the groom vivid­ly reflects the most mas­cu­line qual­i­ties. But Slav­ic wed­ding rings look the most unusu­al in the cel­e­bra­tion. Not only con­fir­ma­tion of the con­sol­i­da­tion of the union of love and har­mo­ny is invest­ed in this acces­so­ry. The wed­ding ring among the Slavs is, first of all, a pow­er­ful amulet that admon­ish­es, pro­tects and inspires young peo­ple and their future fam­i­ly.

Popular models of Slavic rings

Wed­ding rings in the Slav­ic style are dis­tin­guished by their design — they always have cer­tain sym­bols engraved or applied by cast­ing the ring. In Slav­ic cul­ture, all amulets have always been tied to swasti­ka sym­bols, of which there are a lot and each has its own mean­ing. A wed­ding man is the name of the engrav­ing that is applied to wed­ding rings.

Slav­ic sil­ver wed­ding rings. Sil­ver is the most pre­ferred met­al in Slav­ic cul­ture. The Slavs believed that sil­ver prod­ucts car­ry pure ener­gy that can pro­tect. There­fore, for a wed­ding in the Slav­ic style, sil­ver wed­ding rings are most char­ac­ter­is­tic.

Slav­ic gold wed­ding rings. Gold, accord­ing to the Slavs, car­ries more black­ened and bad ener­gy. There­fore, if gold wed­ding rings were already cho­sen, then in Slav­ic cul­ture it is cus­tom­ary to dec­o­rate them with pro­tec­tive orna­ments and sym­bols as much as pos­si­ble.

Wed­ding rings with Slav­ic sym­bols. First of all, nev­er­the­less, the Slavs did not focus on the met­al from which the ring was cast, but on the sym­bol­ism used on it. The most tra­di­tion­al are swasti­ka orna­ments, sym­bols of wed­ding and Kolovrat, as well as sym­bols of male and female ener­gies. Runes have become anoth­er very com­mon­ly used pat­tern, the mean­ing of which also car­ries a pow­er­ful pro­tec­tive pow­er.
