My mom’s culture doesn’t really have e-rings, instead the bride gets a gold jewelry set and like $5k lol. My dad did buy her a wedding band though – 3mm 14k rose gold engraved with his name and their wedding date. She gave it to me when I got married.

futurejewell2017:  I’ve heard that about engraving! I guess it depends on the jeweler and if they’re willing to do it or not. 

The groom gives the set to her, along with other gifts – such as money and traditional fabric that are sewn into dresses (very beautiful) – the night before the ceremony. The groom and a close friend or family member (kind of like a best man) will accompany him to the Bride’s house and he will give her the gifts. The next day is usually the ceremony so the bride wears the jewelry set. 

The set is usually 21-24kt yellow gold and it will have a necklace, earrings, bracelet(s) and a ring. It’ll have a matching design or pattern. The ring can be worn as an e-ring but some brides wear it as a RHR after the wedding. Now that our culture has integrated with western culture, the bride receives a “traditional” e-ring (diamond, white gold) along with the other gifts.
