Material Attractions

Tonight I was reading over an engaged friend's Facebook page, and posted up and down were comments congratulating her, and mentioning the desire to see her ring. Now, would someone please tell me what the fascination with wedding rings is about? Yes, the shine is flashy and eye catching, but isn't the real purpose of the ring to function as a symbol of fidelity?

"Please, let me see your planned, but unproven, fidelity marker!"
"Wow, the diamond is huge! Does that mean you plan to be more faithful than soandso (the person with the lesser gem)?"

I doubt that's what any of those people are thinking. Really, size doesn't matter. It's the commitment behind the bling that should be celebrated.
