Wedding Ring Wine Cup


This design combines the two stages of marriage. Erusin (betrothal) and Nisuin (marriage ceremony). The Kidushin ceremony makes formal and sanctifies the Erusin ceremony. It is the sactification of a man and a woman to each other. A cup of wine is used for a special Kiddush betrothal blessing from which the couple drinks. At that time the ring is placed on the forefinger of the bride by the groom, in the presence of two witnesses, declaring to his future wife the the following declaration: “Behold you are sanctified (betrothed) to me with this ring, according to the Law of Moses and Israel.” The declaration is embossed into the design of the wine cup. The Ketubah (marriage contract) is read and handed to the groom for passing to the bride. The second stage, the Nisuin begins with filling a second cup of wine over which the seven blessings (Sheva Brachot) are recited. After the seven blessings, the couple drink the wine from the cup. To end the ceremony, an empty glass cup is smashed under the right foot of the groom.
The entire ring is hollow, and when filled to the rim contains the proper amount of wine to be drunk.
