Warming of the Rings Around the world the wedding rings are the strongest and most visible sign of the bond these two people are about to make. A commitment to life, to each other and to the future. With a ring warming in your ceremony the rings will not only be a gift from one to another but will be given with the love, support and wisdom of all present.
