Five wedding band styles you should know about
Posted on January 04 2019
More than just a piece of jewellery, the wedding band symbolises a couple’s eternal commitment to one another. Just like a circle has no beginning or end – it is endless and infinite, just the way love should be. It’s the only jewel that both women and men commit to wearing on a daily basis for the rest of their lives. A choice that will last a lifetime, it is important to pick a wedding band design that’s timeless yet contemporary. One you feel truly connected with. One that represents your unique promise to your partner. To help you get inspired, here are five styles to look out for the next time you go wedding band shopping.
#1: Back to Tradition
Go back to gold with our classic Niessing Satellite Rings.
Titanium and ceramic may have entered the wedding band lexicon a few years ago, but many brides are now returning to the classics, such as thin bands made of yellow or rose gold. This trend can be traced back to the royal weddings of 2018: both Meghan Markle and Princess Eugenie opted for Welsh gold, following a century-old royal tradition which saw the Queen Mother choosing a gold band back when she got married in 1923. After all, old truly is gold.
#2: New Rules
Express your individuality with our unique Forevermark Eternal Love wedding bands.
No longer do husband and wife need to wear matching wedding bands to pledge their commitment to one another. Nor does the bride need to match her wedding band with her engagement ring. In fact, today, women are increasingly choosing to wear them separately, one on each hand. This has opened up a world of possibilities for both partners, as they’re no longer restricted to one style or one colour. This also means there’s no need to stick to simple designs for fear of overshadowing your engagement ring. If you’ve been wanting to pick a bold wedding band that’s embellished with diamonds, go for it!
#3: Coloured Stones
Semi-precious gems add a touch of understated elegance – go for our Jorn Rainer Only You Rings.
Ever since Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton with a sapphire ring, coloured stones have become increasingly popular engagement ring options. This has influenced wedding bands as well, as a number of happy couples are opting for precious coloured stones instead of diamonds. We are particularly partial to wedding bands with delicate coloured stones such as blue sapphires, pink tourmalines, or green emeralds. For additional luck and happiness, many are choosing their birth stones as well.
#4: Intertwined Bands
Intricately intertwined, our Destinée Anastasia wedding bands are a brilliant blend of stylish golds.
Why stick to one colour when you can have two or three? If you can’t choose the colour you want, intertwined bands offer a stylish option of featuring different golds – white, rose and yellow. Not only is the ring impactful in design, but each gold colour is representative of the promises you make to one another: rose gold symbolises love, white gold reflects friendship, and yellow gold means loyalty.
#5: Personalised Rings
Bring the ring of your dreams to life with our personalised Ensemble wedding bands.
When it comes to wedding bands, the options are truly endless: how thin or thick do you want the band to be? Platinum, yellow gold, rose gold, ceramic, titanium? Diamonds or without? You get our drift. Your wedding band should reflect your personality and your love story, which is why we offer personalisation services to help couples design the ring of their dreams. To make the ring more personal, engrave meaningful messages, motifs or even your initials onto the band.
