Wedding Bands - A Symbol Of Never-Ending Love
The institution of marriage has undergone several changes over time, but the exchange of rings continues to remain an important marital rite. The wedding ceremony is incomplete without it as those thin, seamless rings worn on the ring finger on the left hand are not mere pieces of jewelry; they are replete with symbolism.
Hence, select an ornament that not only reflects your marital commitment but also your own personal style and taste. Here are tips to choose a set of classic wedding rings for the bride and the groom.
Gold has always been the traditional choice, but its yellow undertone makes it a little tricky when it comes to coordinating it with clothing. White gold and platinum, with their silvery-white look are a better choice in this regard. White gold is a more affordable alternative to the pricey platinum. When you buy metal bands, ensure you check the jewelry marking.
If you are looking at less traditional options, Rose gold looks beautiful too. It's a pink shade and is produced by alloying yellow gold with copper. Tungsten bands are a appropriate option for men. Silver can also be utilised as a metal for wedding rings. However, it's not the ideal substance because unlike gold, it is very soft and is easily damaged, disfigured and scratched.
A wedding ring is typically a seamless ring with no gemstones and layouts, but there is not harm in adding one. A gemstone creates a dainty and delicate design. If you would like to include a gemstone, think of how you'll place it. Also, if the bride's ring has a stone, it's not necessary for the grooms ring to game one; it looks 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 band. When you buy a ring with a stone, select one that has special meaning in your life. It could be a birth stone. Select one that is hard enough to withstand everyday wear.
The style also increases the beauty of the ring. There is a range of styles to pick from. It is possible to choose a vintage style ring that expresses your cultural heritage or chunky, modern ring with intricate designs. If you've always loved to stick out in the crowd, opt for an unusual style wedding ring. It could be a Goth band, horseshoe styled bands, dolphin rings and dragon rings.
Engraving allows you to personalize your wedding rings. Engraving your names and the date of your wedding is a classic trend that will never grow old. If you're limited on space, you may only write the initials. Many modern day brides and grooms have gone one step ahead to engrave words with significant meanings, quotes and phrases on love, a word from a song (our song), nicknames, religious scriptures or symbols of true love.
