Wedding Ring Guide
Yellow gold or white gold are the most commonly chosen precious metals for wedding rings. Some decide on the gold colour by their tradition and complexion, or commonly also, based on their personal preference and existing jewellery pieces for matching purposes. Some brides will choose the colour of the gold that matches their engagement ring if they intend on wearing the engagement ring together on a daily basis. There is also the option of having a combination of yellow, white or rose gold on the ring for something different.
In regards to the texture of your gold ring, you could opt for a mirror polished gold, the shiny smooth look which is the most popular finish. The second common finish is a brushed matte finish that gives your ring more subtlety because it does not reflect light. For those who would like a contrast, there is the combination finish, the ring can be mirror polished in one section and brushed in another.
Classic Wedding Ring
Classic wedding rings are the ones that are chosen for their timeless look. They may possibly be simple in design, but the symbolism it has to offer is significant. We have a range of yellow gold, white gold and mixed gold bands and matching pair rings in store for you to choose from.
Diamond Wedding Ring
For a slight spin on the classic wedding ring, another popular choice is the wedding ring with a single diamond set in the band. It is typically a modest sized stone for and extra touch of character and sparkle. Our store carries a selection of single diamond matching wedding bands in yellow gold, white gold and mixed gold, mirror polished and brushed finish.
The eternity ring is a renowned design that has alluring diamonds set one third, half way or all the way around the band of the ring. It is not only mesmerising and stylish, but also serves a great role in the world of rings. It is cherished and worn as weddings bands for their essence of never-ending bond and infinite love. However, the dateless design and symbolism of this ring is not only limited to the purpose of wedding rings. The eternity ring is also customarily given to your beloved partner to express your feelings of appreciation, devotion and endearment for them on special occasions such as anniversaries, milestone birthdays, Valentine’s Day and more.
Full eternity rings have diamonds lavishly set around the whole ring, especially popular amongst those who favour the opulent sparkle. The diamonds are always there to shimmer whichever way the ring turns on your finger. Half eternity rings’ diamonds are set along the top half of the ring and sometimes preferred by those who have practicality in mind. Due to one half of the ring being plain gold, it is possible and easier to resize if ever necessary. Depending on the wearers fingers, some may feel the half band is more comfortable as there are no stones between the closed fingers in the bottom half of the ring.
For those who wish to add some colour, there are eternity rings that showcase a combination of diamonds with precious stones. Blue sapphire with diamonds or ruby with diamonds are amongst the most desired.
