5 Gorgeous and Simple Women’s Wedding Band Designs

Your engagement ring is the star of the show — you and your partner put time, effort and research into finding the perfect ring to represent your personality and love. It will be a sparkling symbol of your lasting relationship for the rest of your life, and you should definitely show it off with pride.

 

However, your wedding band deserves its own time to shine.

Wedding bands are not always as flashy as engagement rings, but they can carry so much meaning and love.

 

The key to finding your perfect wedding band is to figure out what kind of band will pair well with your engagement ring and be comfortable to wear alongside it. These simple, clean wedding bands can fit with nearly any engagement ring and have lots of opportunities for meaningful customization.

How To Wear Your Promise Ring After The Wedding

Promise rings are beautiful, small symbols of commitment. They are often more modest pieces of jewelry than engagement rings, but still pretty and meaningful gifts that you can wear every day. If you have a promise ring, then you and your partner have probably known for a long time that you want to get married.

 

Now finally, your wedding has arrived and you can start your forever together! We are thrilled you are taking this next step as a couple. But despite the fact that you’re married now, your promise ring may still be a very important symbol for you and your partner. So how can you keep wearing your promise ring even after marriage?

 

We have three simple ideas to give your promise ring a new life after your wedding, so you can remember the early days of your love for the rest of your life.

 

Get your promise ring resized to wear on another finger.

Your promise ring can make a stunning accessory to wear on your right hand or another finger on your left hand. At Rogers & Hollands/Ashcroft & Oak, we are happy to help you craft your promise ring into a custom ring that will fit exactly how you want. You can even resize your promise ring to give to a relative or one of your children.

 

Repurpose the stones for a new piece of jewelry.

If your promise ring has diamonds, sapphires or any kind of shining stone, it can be repurposed into a new piece of jewelry. Transform the stones into a pendant, a pair of earrings or any kind of jewelry you wear on a regular basis. By creating a new piece of jewelry, you’re giving your promise ring a fun new life you’ll love for years to come.

Did you know that men’s wedding bands can be made of platinum, rose or white gold, titanium, tungsten, silver, and even Damascus steel? We bring you the best men’s wedding band designs!

For every engagement, there is always a flood of friends and family who want to see the gorgeous engagement ring you spent so much time choosing for your future spouse. Their engagement ring is an important symbol in your marriage story, but your wedding band is just as important and meaningful.

Fortunately, men’s wedding band options have vastly expanded in recent years, so you have plenty of choices. The sheer number of possible rings can be overwhelming, but a great place to start is by selecting the kind of metal you want. Men’s wedding bands used to be offered mostly in gold, but there are now several metals to choose from — each with their own benefits.

Platinum, tungsten, silver and steel are all excellent alternative metals for men’s wedding rings, and we’ll discuss each of their strengths here. Once you figure out what metal and style you want for your ring, it’s easy to find a wedding band you’ll be proud to wear forever.

Platinum

Platinum has been a popular metal in the jewelry world for years and it’s no wonder why — platinum’s unbelievable durability and beauty make it a perfect metal for lifelong wear. Even tougher than gold, platinum can handle nicks and scratches from everyday use. Platinum is also great for people with allergies and sensitivities to certain metals because it’s hypoallergenic.

If you’re looking for a premium men’s wedding band with a matte, silvery look that you can pass down for generations, platinum might be the right metal for you.
