As the saying goes, all that glitters is not gold. But what if it’s platinum, silver, or rose gold?
As you get ready to seal the deal with your impending I Do’s, picking a wedding band is a special next step to prepare for not just the wedding day, but for forever! Of course anything sparkly and shimmery seems like a great choice, but when you strip away all the dazzle and glamour your wedding band is a true reflection of the promise you’re making to your other half.
With so many options to choose from these days, think carefully about what kind of ring represents your taste and style. You’re going to be wearing this precious gem for a long time to come and it’s important to think about a few key factors.
To Mix or Not to Mix
One of the biggest trends popping up these days is mixing metals. You might love your classic platinum engagement ring (who wouldn’t!) but that doesn’t mean you have to stay committed to the same look for the wedding band. Rose gold makes for an amazing complement for platinum, white gold, or silver engagement rings. It can really help the diamond you’re rocking to pop!
The Ring Stands Alone
Are you planning on wearing your wedding band as a stand alone piece? If so, consider going for the popular diamond eternity band. You can splurge on a wider size as it’ll be the main attraction. Or even go wild and ditch the diamonds for rubies, sapphires, or emeralds. And why not try out a different cut than your engagement ring. Cushion, round, radiant, princess, oval…must we go on?!
Let’s Be Practical
Pick a wedding band that fits your every day needs. If you have a job that requires a lot of hands on attention, maybe go for a simpler look that will be less delicate and more resilient.
But most of all, pick something you love. Almost as much as your fiancé.
