Sephardic Wedding Ring


Gold plated brass ring, Yemenite or Moroccan, early
1900s. In the customary Jewish wedding ceremony, the bride enters the chuppah, a canopy that symbolizes the home the couple will build together. She circles the groom seven times in reference to God’s creation. The groom then declares the bride consecrated to him, whereupon she allows him to place a ring on her right index finger. In doing so, she accepts him as her husband.
