Among Eastern Orthodox and Eastern Catholic Christians, the exchange of rings is not technically a part of the marriage provider, but rather are exchanged at the betrothal. It is usually a two-ring set given to her by the priest or by the handiest man.  The orthodox Christian Church of Greece has currently stopped acting betrothal benefits one at a time, as these were often non-committing, and now a betrothal rite is the preliminary part of the wedding service. In many families a casual blessing is now performed by the betrothed ones’ parents in a family dinner that formalizes the betrothal. The rite of betrothal is now perhaps performed instantly before the marriage (or “crowning” as it is more properly called), and the actual symbolic act of marriage isn’t the exchange of rings, but the crowning. Historically, the wedding ring was attached to the trade of valuables at that time of the marriage rather than a logo of everlasting love and devotion, a sign of “earnest money”. In Germany and Austria, both parties use engagement rings worn on the left hand. At the nuptials, a wedding ring is put on the proper hand, as in a few east European nations, including Bulgaria, Poland, and Russia. This could be a new ring for the bride or both, or reusing the engagement rings. Any engagement rings can then remain on the left hand or be transferred to the perfect hand. In Germany, in has been commonplace for both the bride and the groom to wear a marriage ring since as a minimum the 1870s and mentions of couples exchange rings during the wedding ceremony in the Netherlands can be found at the least as far back as 1815.  In Brazil, Mexico, the Netherlands, and Spain both sexes also wear engagement rings, and the groom’s ring often turns into a wedding ring in the nuptial exchange ceremony.
