An engagement is a promise to marry, and also the period of time between proposal and marriage. During this period, a couple is said to be affianced, betrothed, engaged to be married, or simply engaged. Customs for engagement rings vary according to time, place, and culture. An engagement ring has historically been uncommon, and when such a gift was given, it was separate from the wedding ring.The tradition of giving a ring for marriage engagement originated from Judaism that was originally a golden nose ring given by Eliezer of Damascus to Rebecca. In the modern era, some women's wedding rings are made into two separate pieces. One part is given to her to wear as an engagement ring when she accepts the marriage proposal and the other during the wedding ceremony. When worn together, the two rings look like one piece of jewelry.
