Simple Old Fashioned Wedding Dress
In Somersetshire it is said that the ring-finger stroked along any sore or wound will soon heal it. All the other fingers are poisonous, especially the fore-finger.
Rings were formerly given away at weddings. Anthony Wood relates of Edward Kelly, a "famous philosopher" in Queen Elizabeth's time, that "Kelly, who was openly profuse beyond the modest limits of a sober philosopher, did give away in gold wire rings (or rings twisted with three gold wires) at the marriage of one of his maid-servants, to the value of £4000".
