Simple, usually gold wedding bands have been worn for centuries by women as a sign of infinite love and commitment to their husbands. The tradition holds strong today but modern wedding ring designs, are now often embellished with diamonds, or other gems designed to compliment the engagement ring. Gemstone wedding rings are also often referred to as “eternity rings” or “half eternity rings” depending on whether the gems go around the whole circumference or just half way.

Traditionally a bride would receive a plain gold wedding band upon marriage, which in most countries would be worn on the 2nd finger of the left hand, believed to be directly connected to the heart. The engagement ring is then worn next to the wedding band and often on the birth of a first child or a special anniversary, a third “eternity ring” with precious stones would be given. The modern bride will however, often now essentially wear two eternity rings, one with gemstones to signify the marriage and a second more glamorous one later!
There are various considerations when choosing your wedding band and not least how it will look, fit and feel with your engagement ring. Lifestyle is also something to bear in mind when deciding whether you would like diamonds or not. Below are some examples of recently commissioned work but we would like to invite you for a FREE consultation to discuss your individual requirements, and explore the avenues to manifesting your dream wedding or eternity ring!
