There is much focus on the engagement ring, but what of the wedding ring?
Yellow gold is firmly back
A trend that we’ve seen over the last few years, and which we prodict will continue, is the transition back to yellow gold.
For years now white gold and platinum have dominated both the engagement ring and the wedding ring scenes, but already the move back to traditional yellow has been slowly gaining popularity. The precious metal is expected to gain more popularity than ever since the reign of white gold began. T
Matching your wedding band with your engagement ring
The engagement ring without an additional wedding ring is still the predominant trend. If the woman decides she only wants one ring, she is in good company–many women have chosen to go this route.
But, wedding bands are gaining momentum, and many couples are choosing to have both. The uniqueness of varying designs allows for any taste or preference, and the addition of a wedding ring to an already beautiful engagement ring is advisable for anyone.
Matching wedding bands
For the romantics in the world, the trend to have matching his-and-hers wedding rings has become extremely popular. More men are wearing wedding rings than ever before, and matching the ring to that worn by the woman proclaims a statement of dedicated unity.
With the abilities of most jewellers, almost any engagement ring can be examined and used as inspiration to create a complimentary ring for her and a matching wedding band for him.
A wedding band, either for him or for her, needs to last, and this has prompted many couples to choose materials of a more durable nature.
Platinum has become a favoured metal both for its durability and its inherent value. Many people love both the white gold and the yellow gold looks and have a difficult decision choosing between the two. A new trend is to simultaneously incorporate the two metals, either by choosing one metal for the engagement ring and the other for the wedding ring, or by creating a ring that uses both.
