Design Your Own Wedding Ring. Contemporary Trends

Aug 1, 2008
The wedding ring may be a symbolic tradition, but these days there is nothing at all traditional about the varying selections of wedding bands available. From the simple unadorned band to colored metals, engraved, patterned, and set with stones, you will find a dizzying array of wedding rings to select from. Before ordering your custom wedding rings perhaps you may like to consider some of the following contemporary trends:

Colored metals are becoming more popular as wedding bands, particularly for the guy who may want something a little different from the plain gold band. Titanium wedding bands are becoming increasingly in demand due to the variety of colors of the metal ranging from very shiny silver (looks a lot like platinum) through to both matte and shiny grays and blacks. Titanium wedding rings are also on the rise due to the fact that, like platinum, they are hard wearing and hypo allergenic. Black zirconium wedding bands are another option for those who admire colored metals. Zirconium is also extremely hard wearing, light weight, and scratch resistant.

Colored diamonds are becoming more and more in vogue for wedding bands, for both men and women. Black and brown diamonds in particular look fantastic set in black titanium wedding bands. Colored diamonds in browns and yellows are also extremely popular. Pink diamonds are a perennial favorite for her.

Diamond wedding ring. Care should be taken when considering a diamond wedding ring as to how to have your diamonds set. This ring will be on your finger all the time, for both work and play. Sensible and hard wearing settings are recommended. Pave set diamonds, and bezel set diamonds are popular setting for women's wedding rings, while channel, tension, and gypsy style settings are practical for men's wedding rings.

Two tone wedding bands are a great way to have a totally unique wedding band. Titanium can be worked in different colors or textures in the one band. White gold or platinum, and yellow gold together have always been a traditional favorite to create two tones. Two tone wedding bands are ideal for the individual who likes to mix and match their other pieces of jewelry.

Engraved wedding bands add visual appeal and texture to a wedding ring. Engraving can be relatively simple to highly elaborate. Designs range from Celtic, antique inspired, geometric, swirls, and flowers. Tacori wedding rings are probably one of the most famous of the hand made engraved wedding rings available.

A wedding ring is one piece of jewelry that you will always be wearing. Custom wedding rings are a fantastic way to create not only a unique wedding band, but also an item of jewelry that truly represents your personality and lifestyle. From traditional to totally contemporary and cutting edge, along with combinations of both, there will be a wedding ring for you. Consult your custom jeweler about the availability of titanium and zirconium as wedding band metals if you fancy gray or black.

Your wedding ring should be planned with care. Discuss your work and lifestyle activities with your custom jeweler to ensure your wedding band will be able to be on your finger at all times.
