A lot of love and care went into choosing and giving your engagement ring, so now it’s time to give wedding bands your undivided attention. The choices seem endless, but we’ve gathered some popular looks to help narrow things down for you.
In this blog we’ll cover stackable wedding bands, rose gold bands and vintage style wedding bands, as well as other styles to pair with engagement rings. We’ll also look at some wedding band options that are so beautiful and diamond-studded they could stand on their own. What we’re not covering here are wedding bands for men – a topic that merits a full blog article all on its own. We’ll write about that soon. In the meantime, let’s explore trending wedding bands for engagement rings.
Stackable wedding bands
Stackable wedding bands are in – and for good reason. It’s a look that’s easy to personalize. It’s a style that can be changed to suit your moods, your outfit, the season and more. It’s also a way to add lots of melee diamonds – and that’s a good thing: The more diamonds on the band, the more diamond sparkle it will have. With so many pluses, it’s no surprise that stackable wedding bands are popular.
Rose gold wedding bands
Rose gold is a trending wedding band choice. Its warm tones are soothing and serene. Rose gold wedding bands can also make a bold statement when paired with the perennially popular white metals. Another benefit: Rose gold wedding rings complement most skin tones.
Vintage style wedding bands
Contemporary jewelry designers are reimagining vintage engagement rings for today’s sensibilities. Their designs capture the style and glamour of past eras – but have all the excitement that we’ve come to expect from modern creations. Does your engagement ring have a vintage style, like Art Deco, Art Nouveau or Edwardian? Why not carry the style through with your wedding band to create a themed and unified look? Brides-to-be with a taste for things of the past are making this one of the more popular trends for wedding bands.
Pavé and bead-set diamond wedding bands
Pavé is a setting style where numerous melee diamonds are set into the metal’s surface in a honeycomb pattern, nestled close to the stones next to them. It creates an appearance of uninterrupted diamonds. A field of diamonds is irresistible for its sparkle, and that has made the pavé look one of this year’s hottest trends in wedding bands.
Bead-set diamonds are also a trending wedding band design. In this setting style, small beads of metal hold the diamonds in place, creating a simple and elegant look.
Twisted wedding bands
Twisted bands are definitely contemporary, yet the motif is extremely old. Papyrus scrolls from ancient Egypt showed images of rings braided from hemp or reeds. Perhaps the motif symbolized two lives intertwined. Theories aside, today twisted wedding bands deliver a modern look and add welcome visual richness to engagement rings.
Now that you know these five wedding band trends, you’re probably thinking about the big day – and looking for something old, something new in jewelry ideas.
