Wedding Bands - A Symbol Of Never-Ending Love

The institution of marriage has undergone several changes through the years, 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.

Hence, choose an ornament that 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.

The three most widely used precious metals are yellow gold, platinum and white gold. Gold has always been the traditional choice, but its yellow undertone makes it somewhat tricky when it comes to coordinating it with clothing. White gold and platinum, with their silvery-white seem are a better option in this regard. White gold is a more affordable alternative to the pricey platinum. When you buy metal bands, make sure to check the jewellery marking.

If you are looking at less conventional choices, Rose gold looks beautiful too. It's a pink color and is made by alloying yellow gold with copper. Tungsten bands are a suitable option for men. Silver can also be utilised as a metal for wedding rings. However, it's not the perfect substance because unlike gold, it's quite soft and is easily damaged, disfigured and scratched.

Gemstones

A wedding ring is typically a seamless ring without any gemstones and designs, but there's not harm in adding one. A gemstone makes a dainty and delicate design. If you want to incorporate a gemstone, think of how you will place it. Also, if the bride's ring has a stone, it is not necessary for the grooms ring to sport one; it seems better plain.

Speaking of potential gemstone choices, white diamonds are undoubtedly the most choice. Amethyst, turquoise, pearls and chocolate diamonds are other favorites for a wedding ring. When you buy a ring with a stone, choose one that has special meaning in your life. It might be a birth stone. Select one which is hard enough to withstand everyday wear.

Style

The style also increases the beauty of the ring. There is a range of styles to pick from. It is possible to choose a classic style ring that expresses your cultural heritage or chunky, modern ring with intricate designs. If you've always loved to stand out in the audience, opt for an unusual style wedding band. It could be a Goth band, horseshoe styled rings, dolphin rings and dragon rings.

Engraving

Engraving allows you to personalize your wedding bands. Engraving your names and the date of your wedding is a classic trend that will never grow old. If you are restricted on space, you can only write the initials.
