If the thought of a classic white diamond wedding band doesn’t appeal to you, you’re not alone. As brides’ tastes moved beyond the traditional styles, wedding rings have started to come in all shapes and styles to meet those demands. No matter what your taste is, you can easily find a wedding band that aesthetically speaks to you, and also plays up your distinct style.
Whether you’re looking for something glitzy, or more elegant and discrete in design; finding your ideal wedding band is easier than ever. And with so many options to choose from, it is now possible to find your dream ring at a price that fits your budget. From eternity bands in mixed metals, to gemstone encrusted rose gold rings – in terms of choice, the skies the limit!
To help you find the right wedding band that suits your individual sense of style, we’ve selected five of the most unique wedding band looks that are currently on the market. And remember, custom is also an option for brides and grooms that want their ring to be truly one-of-a-kind. For couples wishing to engrave their rings, or have family heirlooms upgraded, going custom makes the most sense. Most jewellers offer custom services, and you’ll be guaranteed to get the ring(s) you’ll cherish for a lifetime.
Vintage wedding bands inspire that 50’s glamour found in cinema starlets, like Rita Hayworth. These rings are known for their shimmery appearance and their weak-in-the-knees centre stones. The lovely thing about the vintage design is its glitzy timelessness. Whereas in the past, the traditional vintage style was white diamonds with a white gold or yellow gold band, brides are now adding rose gold, black diamonds and gemstones to the mix. Go vintage when you want to get noticed.
For brides looking for a pop of colour, why not go for a black diamond or gemstone as your setting? Diamonds are available in a rainbow of colours, so no matter what your preference, you can certainly incorporate colour into your band. Whether it’s a hint of colour you are after, or a big splash – your wedding ring can have either accent gemstones or a big vibrant gem as the centre stone. There are no rules when it comes to designing your wedding band, so if you have always loved emeralds, now is the time to get yourself an emerald wedding band.
One of the most popular and unique wedding band styles is the current trend of mixing metals. If you love both rose gold and white gold, but can’t decide which one you love more? Don’t worry, with so many jewellers now offering mixed metal styles, you can find the blend of metals that best suits you. Both men and women are looking to two-tone and tri-colour designs for their wedding bands. It’s undeniable; there truly is something breathtakingly gorgeous about mixing rose, yellow and white gold together. For the more modern groom, if you’re looking for something stylish and rugged, definitely consider going for a mixed metal wedding band.
Rose gold has become one of the most popular metals for both brides and grooms. There is something inherently fashionable and eye-catching about this blush-hued gold. Both delicate and striking in appearance, rose gold will have people oohing and ahhing over your ring. And what brides have come to happy discover, is that rose gold looks fabulous with every skin tone, and whether you pair it with a white diamond or a gemstone – it just works really well. Of all the metals, it is the easiest to complement with other golden hues and any colour of stone. When you’re looking to stand out from the crowd, and look spectacular while doing it, then going for a rose gold wedding band makes perfect sense.
Not to say all wedding bands are shaped exactly the same, but there are some rings that truly stand out due to their innovative and striking appearance. For the more individualistic bride, finding a wedding band with an unusual shape and/or remarkable features is the best way to let people know you are a one-of-a-kind type of lady. If you are in the market for something a bit different than the standard eternity band or plain band, why not consider a baguette diamond swirl ring? Or finding a wedding band comprised of two to three stacked rings? Stacking rings has become very popular amongst brides, and it’s a lovely way to incorporate multiple styles into one ring.
