What Are The Best Wedding Ring Bands?

Your wedding bands will be one of the most important pieces of jewelry you and your partner will purchase during your lives. They are something you will both want to wear every single day, so they should ideally reflect your personal style and beautifully represent the unique bond you share. If you’re looking for some advice or inspiration, here are some ideas that we hope will appeal to you.

Make A Fresh Statement With Contemporary Wedding Bands

Geometric Ring

If you aren’t a traditional couple or are eager to invest in beautiful pieces of jewelry with a uniquely contemporary edge, geometric wedding bands could be perfect for you. Understated yet interesting, a Geometric Ring can be worn with every outfit and seamlessly make a subtle style statement that is certain to have countless people asking, “Oh my gosh, where did you get that gorgeous wedding band?”

Celebrate Supreme Craftsmanship With Intricate Wedding Bands

Silver Vines Ring

If you’re looking for a delicate wedding band, a ring with cut-out detailing is certain to reflect your personal style with ease. A highly-polished Silver Vines Ring will glisten beautifully in the sunlight, and the cut-outs will allow your skin to peek through, giving this substantial piece a supremely light touch that will capture attention for all the right reasons.

Alternatively, if you enjoy the detailing present on many vintage wedding bands but wish to purchase something that reflects your contemporary personal style, you’re likely to fall in love with a style that merges modern detailing with a classic silhouette. Our Portuguese Marcasite Ring is crafted by talented artisans who understand how to use traditional techniques to create unmistakably modern pieces of extremely wearable jewelry.

Think Outside The Box With A Non-Traditional Wedding Ring

Love Knot Ring

Of course, you don’t need to choose a classic wedding band at all if you don't want to. If you would rather go for something a little bit different, a Love Knot Ring is a beautiful way to demonstrate your enduring commitment to your partner. This simple silhouette is supremely meaningful and is a gorgeous symbol of eternal love that could perfectly represent your union.

What Are The Best Wedding Band Materials?

With styles crafted from a variety of different materials, you are certain to find the perfect wedding band to suit your personal style and budget.

- Platinum Wedding Bands

Wedding bands crafted from platinum are extremely popular because they have a gorgeous sheen that won’t ever change color or fade. Platinum rings are also extremely strong and benefit from being hypo-allergenic.

- Palladium Wedding Bands

Palladium is part of the group of platinum metals and has a naturally white hue that won’t need re-plating. Palladium is also highly durable but benefits from being more affordable than pure platinum.

- White Gold Wedding Bands

When pure gold is alloyed with another white metal, such as silver or palladium, white gold is created. White gold wedding bands are often plated with hypo-allergenic rhodium, which gives them a gleaming white luster. Rhodium-plated white gold rings will need re-plating, but because they provide a stunning backdrop for a variety of stones, they remain a highly popular choice.

- Yellow Gold Wedding Bands

Yellow gold has been used to create wedding bands for centuries. Its combination of pure gold, silver and copper gives yellow gold wedding bands a gorgeous warmth, which will differ depending on the carat you select.

- Rose Gold Wedding Bands

Also referred to as red gold or pink gold, rose gold wedding bands have a romantic and contemporary feel that can’t be replicated using any other metal. Rose gold is often used in mixed-metal wedding bands alongside yellow or white gold. As with yellow gold, the carat of your rose gold ring will influence its durability and color.

- Silver Wedding Bands

This affordable precious metal is a popular choice for intricate wedding bands because it’s extremely malleable. Silver wedding bands can also be plated in rhodium to give them extra strength and shine.

- Titanium Wedding Bands

Titanium is extremely durable, hypo-allergenic, and wonderfully lightweight. It also has a deep silver hue, which can be used to create bold wedding bands with a masculine feel.

- Zirconium Wedding Bands

Comparable to titanium in both weight and strength, zirconium can be treated with heat to give it a gorgeous black oxide coating. Black zirconium wedding bands are instantly eye-catching and are an ideal choice for those who want to make a bold style statement.
