The sentiment of love, treasure and honor one another forever — associated with wedding rings remains much the same. The materials used in wedding bands too are symbols of love and devotion.  Diamonds are a popular stone for wedding band, because diamonds of their beauty and significance.  They are literally indestructible and are the “forever”.  Rubies are another choice representing love, keenness and grandeur. Chunky wedding rings are no longer in trend now. People who lead active lifestyles prefer a simple plain gold, tungsten or platinum wedding band as these can easily be kept clean. These are usually engraved with either the bride and groom’s names (as well as the wedding date) or a pledge of commitment.

Consider the four C’s — cut, color, clarity and carat – before buying a diamond wedding band. Experts say that cut is the most important of the four as it brings out the fire and the brilliance. The yellow color of the gold makes the diamond look whiter. Also keep in mind that options for wedding rings include gold, white gold, rose gold, silver, platinum, palladium, titanium and zirconium to name a few.

rose gold

Yellow Gold is the traditional, classic choice for wedding rings. It’s affordability makes it a popular choice. White Gold is an alloy of gold and some white metals such as silver and palladium. Rose Gold with its bright colour ranges from rose, red to pink depending on the amount of Copper alloy added; the more copper, the redder the colour. Rose Gold contains a mixture of Gold and Copper alloy which are commonly used in jewellery. Like its Yellow Gold counterpart, Rose Gold has a lower scratch resistance. Titanium is an increasingly popular choice for wedding jewellery, its light weight and strength make it comfortable and very easy to wear. It’s also nickel free, making it hypoallergenic and tarnish resistant. Platinum is more rare than gold. Its heaviness, density and strength make it an ideal setting for wedding bands. Platinum is hypoallergenic, scratch resistant and never tarnishes. It does not expand when exposed to heat and, unlike white gold, is naturally white. This will help you in your material selection for your band.

Please note that there is a significant difference between men’s and women’s wedding rings and the main one is the absence of fragile details on the men’s rings since men are the ones who are usually involved in the sports and other heavy activities.  You’ll be wearing your wedding rings forever so be sure to love what you buy!
