Picture this: it’s your wedding day. Everything is set up in just the right way, with the just the right color scheme, with just the right touches, and everything has fallen into place.
You’re about to exchange rings that will bond you and the love of your life for the rest of your days.
When you picture this moment, what do those wedding bands look like? Do they look like any other ring out there, or do they look like the perfect representation of your relationship?
These are the things we tend to overlook. There’s a lot of focus on the perfect engagement ring, and the best proposal, and the most breathtaking wedding. But, what about the rings that reveal your marriage to the world?
Your wedding day, your marriage, your love, and your style are one-of-a-kind. Shouldn’t your wedding band be just as unique? We think so. Current wedding trends have been bursting with more creativity over the past few years than ever before, and that boldness and true-to-you style can be seen in every aspect of weddings today—and wedding bands are no exception.
We’re going to go through three of today’s top wedding band trends, why we love them, and what you’ll want to keep in mind as you find the perfect wedding bands.
Today, it’s all about the sparkle. Prong set diamonds, smaller diamonds used to cover the surface of the ring, are more versatile than your average accent diamonds. They can be layered, they can be minimalist, and they can really maximize the overall shine of the ring.
Prong set diamonds are almost necessary to anyone who loves a bit of glamor. But really, who doesn’t want a bit of sparkle in their life? When looking at any of the prong set diamond wedding bands out there today, we love the touch of shine they provide—just enough for the wow factor, but not too much to overwhelm.
Retro-style and vintage wedding bands bring out a touch of the past, and work best for those who love uniquely styled rings. From detailed filigree engravings to delicate raised edges, going vintage for your wedding band will bring a timeless element to your wedding set.
What’s not to love? We love this trend for its combined aesthetic of past and present. When you look for a vintage wedding band or ring, you are potentially looking through rings that have seen love before (like if you use your grandmother’s wedding ring). Or, on the inverse, you are creating or choosing a styled ring that symbolizes that same feeling: something old to create something new.
Why limit yourself to one ring? That’s the question that stackable wedding bands bring to the table. These wedding bands look delicate on their own, but bring about a new and customized feel when paired with another band (or two). These rings can come in any number of styles, but the overall look you receive from this trend is pure and simple: the style is all about the layers.
This trend gives you unlimited potential. With stackables, you get to show off your personal style, swap the order, mix and match, wear one without the other, and—more importantly—tell your story. We just can’t get over this trend, because it really gives you the option to style as you go, and the possibility to show off how you’ve been building your marriage, one anniversary or holiday or milestone at a time.
The biggest thing to keep in mind when you begin shopping for wedding bands, is this: what works best for you? Whether you have a specific budget to work off of, or you feel like you need something more special than a ring you pick out of the case, or you need a one on one with a professional jeweler, we have you covered at Diamonds Rock.
