Handfasting

Handfasting - A ceremony going back to antiquity, Handfasting is a practice of marriage prior to the accessibility of rings and precious metals. The couple would take a piece of fabric or rope and before their friends and families, state their love and purpose by reciting a few words and also binding themselves together symbolically with the rope. It is from this custom we still describe marriage as "tying the knot".

The oathing stone is held by the bride and groom while their vows are recited, after that in some customs is tossed into a deep body of water to hold those promises for evermore. Today that stone may be kept as a remembrance of this wedding.
