As much as your engagement ring is the center of attention leading up to your wedding day, the wedding band you choose is an extension of your commitment and should complement your engagement ring's style. Understanding the different wedding band options, most popular metals, and top bridal designers will arm you with the know-how for selecting a band that will not just accentuate your engagement ring but will highlight its beauty and your love.
Choose Your Wedding Band Style
Many brides want to add a bit more sparkle with their bands; if that sounds like you, an eternity band is a lovely option. A stunning symbol of your eternal love, an eternity band features stones that drape all around the shank.
Stones on an eternity band can vary in size, colour, and shape, allowing brides to personalize and individualize their bridal jewellery. Do keep in mind stones tracing the entire ring does mean more maintenance and a higher risk of damage. Opting for a ½ eternity band is a great compromise for sparkle and everyday wear.
If your preferred aesthetic is more understated, a classic, traditional band is a great choice. Incorporating mixed metals can easily spice up a classic band and keep the overall look modern and contemporary.
The stacking trend is still quite popular, and brides wanting a modern, chic, and understated look (with lots of room for gorgeous details and plenty of sparkle) will likely fall for a stackable wedding band. Even better, start with a single band, and add another each milestone anniversary.
Men's wedding bands have also entered a new space with ample options for handsome, classic looks as well as diamond-accented, stately varieties. Consider matching bands or coordinating styles for a truly cohesive look.
Choose Your Material
Whether you decide on yellow or white gold, platinum, or even titanium, a wedding band is meant to last a lifetime, so choose a band material meant to endure. While yellow gold evokes a timeless warmth, both white gold and platinum offer the brightest sheen.
Rose gold is a bit of a chameleon, able to look both utterly vintage and decidedly modern depending on the style of the band and its embellishments. Platinum rings are also extremely durable and hypoallergenic, though they do generally cost more than gold.
Alternative materials such as titanium are also quite popular for men's wedding bands, offering a rugged, sleek look.
