How To Choose A Wedding Band

While choosing the right engagement ring is mulled over for many months, its life partner the wedding band can be something of an afterthought. But as a piece of jewellery you’ll wear for the rest of your life, it is a good idea to spend a bit of time finding the perfect wedding ring. There is a huge amount of choice in styles of wedding bands out there and it can be a little overwhelming so it’s worth narrowing your search by deciding on the basics. Traditionally the material will be chosen to match the engagement ring – white gold and platinum (the strongest and most durable metal) have become the most popular styles with rose gold also seeing a surge in popularity partly thanks to the increase of Morganite engagement rings. Yellow gold is a timeless choice and suitable for everyday wear. While it can be nice to have a wedding band which compliments your engagement ring it isn't a necessity. They are two very separate rings for separate reasons so a difference in the bands can be quite special. Once your metal is chosen it’s worth considering how the wedding band sits with your engagement ring. If your engagement ring has a very large centre stone then this may cause a gap between it and the band, in which case it’s worth considering a shaped wedding band or one which interlocks with the stone. Engraving inside of the band is also very popular and adds a beautiful personal touch that only the couple know about. From then on, it’s a matter of personal taste – plain or diamond-set, classic or cool, timeless or a little quirky? *The image above shows his and hers bespoke wedding bands. The ladies band has a textured finish while the gents has a polished finish. Both rings have engraving on the inside of the band. Contact Neil Miller to discuss your requirements:
