What Is An Engagement Ring?
Any ring can be used or considered as an engagement ring. It doesn't need to be a diamond solitaire, in fact it doesn't need to contain any diamonds at all.

Diamond Propaganda
The Diamond Promotion (or should that be propaganda?) Service, connected closely to De Beers, who market most of the world's diamond production have researched the history of engagement rings. Whenever you read about the history of them, you will probably find the same story, so we will not repeat it hear.
It may not be generally known, but the "tradition" of diamond engagement rings is under 150 years old, it did not come about until after the discovery of commercial size diamond deposits in South Africa in 1857, which made diamonds inexpensive enough to be available to the general public for the first time.

Which Finger
Third finger of the left hand is the usual place to wear your engagement ring. Just to make it crystal clear, that's the finger next to your little finger. It's also known is the "ring" finger. Starting from the thumb, your digits are usually called thumb, index finger, middle finger, ring finger, and little finger.
