The history of engagements has been shaped by many religions, traditions and cultures. This custom was already known in various forms in Biblical and ancient times. For example, in ancient Rome a fiancé presented his beloved a coin or a ring made from iron or gold. It is believed that the originator of the tradition as we know today, presenting the loved one with an engagement ring, was Maximilian III, Archduke of Austria, who gave a diamond ring to Mary of Burgundy in 1477.
A diamond ring remains the model for engagement rings with one or many stones. A typical one-stone ring with a simple and clean line and a stone placed in a subtle basket is known as a chaton ring.
