According to Jewish law the marriage contract may be finalized through money, document or consummation. The marriage ceremony is traditionally performed by using a ring which is in part gold or silver as an equivalent to money. The groom buys a wedding ring and puts it on the bride's finger during the wedding ceremony. The sentence that finalizes the marriage is recited by the groom: "Behold, you are consecrated to me with this ring according to the law of Moses and Israel". It is customary to put the ring on the bride's index finger during the ceremony and then transfer it to the left ring finger.
