Wedding Bands - A Symbol Of Never-Ending Enjoy
The institution of marriage has undergone several changes through time, but the exchange of rings continues to remain an important marital rite. The wedding ceremony is incomplete without it as those thin, seamless bands worn on the ring finger on the left hand aren't mere pieces of jewelry; they are replete with symbolism. They stand for enduring and immortal love.
You will wear your wedding ring for the rest of your life. Hence, select an ornament which not only reflects your marital commitment but also your own personal style and taste. Here are tips to pick a set of classic wedding rings for the bride and the groom.
Gold has always been the traditional choice, but its yellowish undertone makes it a little tricky when it comes to coordinating it with clothing. White gold and gold, with their silvery-white seem are a better choice in this regard. White gold is a more affordable alternative to the pricey platinum. When you purchase metal bands, make sure you check the jewellery marking.
If you are looking at less conventional choices, Rose gold looks amazing too. It's a pink color and is produced by alloying yellow gold with copper. Tungsten bands are a suitable option for men. Silver can also be used as a metal for wedding rings. However, it's not the perfect substance because unlike gold, it is quite soft and is easily damaged, disfigured and scratched.
A wedding ring is typically a seamless ring with no gemstones and designs, but there is not harm in adding one. A gemstone creates a dainty and delicate design. If you want to incorporate a gemstone, consider how you will place it. Also, if the bride's ring has a rock, it's not necessary for the grooms ring to game one; it seems better plain.
Speaking of possible gemstone choices, white diamonds are undoubtedly the most choice. When you buy a ring with a stone, choose one that has special meaning in your life. It could be a birth stone. Select one which is hard enough to withstand everyday wear.
The style also increases the beauty of the ring. There is a range of styles to choose from. You can choose a classic style ring that expresses your cultural heritage or chunky, modern ring with intricate designs. If you've always loved to stick out in the audience, opt for an unusual style wedding ring. It could be a Goth band, horseshoe styled rings, dolphin rings and dragon rings.
Engraving permits you to personalize your wedding rings. Messages are engraved on the inner side of the ring. Engraving your names and the date of your wedding is a classic trend that won't ever grow old. If you're limited on space, you can just write the initials. Many modern day brides and grooms have gone one step ahead to engrave words with important meanings, quotations and phrases on love, a word from a song (our song), nicknames, religious scriptures or symbols of true love.
