wedding rings
in searching traditions on norwegian wedding rings, i found this archived posting from NORWAY-L explaining that bands usually have engravings, and the the husband has "din lena" and the wife has "din ole" engraved inside.

after some quick searching, i can't turn up what these mean...any clues? thanks! :)

din means your. Lena is a woman's name, Ole is a man's.

Also, I gather this question would have been more at home in norskstudent (for people who want to learn Norwegian. This community is for translating LJ into Norwegian).

Re:

Dear Mumminlaakson.

While you were at it, couldn't you take the few minutes required to explain some other differences between the Anglo-American and Norwegian traditions?
Both husband and wife use idential rings here, and they're normally bought as a pair, while the americans often buy their wife a more fancy diamond ring.

Also worth mentioning is our tradition considering engravings.
The common practice of engraving both name and date in both rings..

Fortsatt god helg mummimamma!

Re:

Also, Norwegians wear wedding bands on their RIGHT hands, and not LEFT as the Anglo-American and Swedish/Danish custom.

Are engagement rings normally given in Norway?
If so, what are they like?
