Key Considerations For Selecting The Perfect Wedding Bands

Weddings bands symbolise a lifelong commitment between you and your partner, therefore choosing the perfect wedding band is an important task!

Whilst wedding bands are meant to be simple and timeless, there are a few ways that you can ensure that your wedding band suits your unique personality.

I think that it’s vital to remember that a wedding band’s beauty is in its message; a piece of jewellery that represents the love and commitment between two people. While in the past a wedding band was a sign of a woman being the property of a man, the modern era is breathing new life into this out-dated tradition. In today’s world, it’s all about showcasing equal partnership and the omni-present devotion between two individuals.

One of the first questions that comes to mind when couples are at the beginning of the process of searching for their bands, is how they can match their engagement rings and wedding bands. I find that one of the best ways to achieve an element of balance between your wedding band and engagement ring is to match the metals for an element of consistency.

However, contrasting bands that feature different metals can also be a great option for couples that desire something to suit their individual skin tones. I’m also seeing an increase in the number of men who are willing to experiment with their jewellery and choose something a little bit different. I find that many of my male customers are mixing things up with dark tones, as opposed to the traditional yellow, rose and white gold. For men’s rings, hardwearing materials, other than gold, like Zirconium are also a good choice.

An emerging trend for women’s wedding bands is a return to simplicity, with an emphasis on symbolism and meaning. Everything comes back full circle!

Many of my customers seek a way to add a unique touch to their band, while still retaining that simple and timeless aesthetic that is so beautiful. There are a number of ways that this can be achieved, from engravings to a secret gem embedded on the inside. For those who are interested in extra customisation we can adorn the outside of your band with fine fancy coloured gemstones that reflect part of your partners ring.

You can keep you band looking pristine by removing it in situations where it may get damaged, (always putting it in the same place so you don’t lose it) and bring it to your jeweller every few years for a professional polish that will have it looking good as new!
