Did you know the average couple dates for around 5 years before tying the knot? A wedding ring is something that is a symbol of that love, commitment and union.
There are many different types of wedding rings. Here are a few of the most popular wedding ring styles.
The word “traditional” can sometimes make people think of “boring”. This is far from the truth. There is no such thing as a boring wedding ring. Traditional wedding rings are just pieces that aren’t overly frilly. They are considered timeless and will never go out of style. Traditional wedding rings include plain bands in white gold, platinum, or rose gold.
Modern wedding rings can have interesting design elements such as a double band or a band with a wider width than a traditional band. They don’t typically involve diamonds or gemstones.
An eternity band has diamonds or gemstones around the entire band. The band attracts light and sparkles from every angle. There are a multitude of options in band design and stone placement.
4. Vintage Inspiration
Vintage inspired wedding bands can have subtle touches of elegance to incredibly intricate designs with floral or other romantic elements. Yellow gold and rose gold are incredibly popular for vintage inspired wedding bands. Slightly more modern but no less stunning would be white gold or platinum.
Carved wedding bands tend to be bought alongside the matching engagement ring. They can be anything from white gold, platinum, rose gold, or white gold. Carved wedding rings can have a simple carved line or an elaborate carved pattern.
The word “pavé ” is French and means “to pave”. In regards to wedding rings, pavé essentially means to pave with diamonds or another gemstone. Wedding bands paved with diamonds and sapphires is a beautiful and popular combination. The stones can be in a band around the ring or sporadically spaced out like accents.
Custom wedding rings are as the name implies, a customized ring to your specifications. With a custom ring you can ensure you get exactly what you’re looking for. Perhaps you want to incorporate a variety of unique styles or use a stone from a family heirloom. Custom rings can be as simple or as ornate as you want.
When it comes to choosing wedding bands there are no rules you must abide by. Find a wedding band that is completely and utterly you, that symbolizes your love and commitment to each other.
