Buying Your Wedding Bands: Everything You Need to Know
Choosing a wedding band is an important matter. After all, this piece of jewellery symbolizes one of the most important commitments you will ever make in life—the commitment to love and cherish your significant other until death do you part.
Did you know that wedding bands have a long history that dates thousands of years back to Ancient Egypt, when people wore wedding rings to signify the bond between married couples? The round and endless form of a wedding ring—which has no definitive beginning or end— represents the eternal love that marrying couples have for each other.
The essence of “The One” ring
The very first rings from the ancient days were forged out of iron.
Moving forward to the medieval times, wedding bands began to transform in style and look with the use of more precious metals and settings as well as the addition of decorative elements. It was during the medieval age that wedding rings with gold settings and gemstone appliqués became popular, making the standard for wedding ring style and design.
These days, you will find an infinite assortment of wedding bands and ring styles made out of a wide range of materials and adorned by all kinds of precious elements to match individual style preferences.
Modern wedding bands now come in yellow gold, white gold, or rose gold settings, along with platinum settings or a combination of different materials that help create a unique style and look for a wedding band.

Choosing a wedding band for her
Wedding bands differ in terms of material, design, and overall style. They also differ in ring settings from prong to pave, and bezel.
Eternity bands are likely increasing in popularity as wedding bands, especially for women who want to keep the attention and spotlight on their engagement ring. When buying wedding bands for her, it’s important to consider the style and material of the engagement ring so that your wedding ring will match it as closely as possible.
The amount of decoration and specialty details like stone settings on your wedding band is entirely your choice. Some people prefer extra sparkle on their wedding bands, while others may choose a more straightforward design that’s practical to wear on a daily basis.
Choosing a wedding band for him
Male wedding bands tend to be an easier choice as most men have a simpler taste in jewellery.

All in all, the secret to finding the perfect wedding band is to choose styles that match your own personality and at the same time fits your lifestyle.
Because you are expected to wear your wedding ring on a daily basis, you want to take into account how you use your hands every day, be it for work, recreation, or any other activity you typically engage in. This way, you can make sure that your wedding ring design will stay intact even when subjected to the rigours of your daily lifestyle activities.
Since you’ll be wearing your wedding band for life, it is crucial to choose the highest quality materials that will last for years to come. Make sure to take into account important aspects like the metal used, the setting style, and the authenticity and quality of the gemstones used in your wedding band.
