Wedding Bands: The Perfect Fit

Wedding rings symbolize your whole marriage. No one wants to get stuck with a bad wedding ring. Read this article for some useful information.

Wedding Band Materials

Wedding bands are traditionally made of gold, white gold or platinum. If a couple chooses gold bands, they should select 14k or 18k gold for sufficient quality and durability. Bands may be embellished with special finishes or engraved patterns to reflect individual tastes. Diamonds or other precious stones may also be incorporated into the design.  Ask us about our collection of Carlex wedding bands.

Matching Bands

Many couples wish to have matching wedding bands to symbolize their union. Engaged pairs may purchase matching “his and hers” rings, or create a matching custom design for both bands. If a couple cannot agree on a shared band design, they may consider rings that are coordinated rather than matching. For example, bands might be made of the same material, share a similar style (e.g. vintage, classic, modern), engraved pattern, or include the same stones without being identical. If the bride and groom prefer different metals (gold vs. platinum), they may choose to create a ring that incorporates both colors.

Wedding Bands: The Perfect Fit

The wedding band is perhaps the most important piece of jewelry worn in life. Symbolic of the bride and groom’s commitment to each other, wedding bands are exchanged as part of the marriage ceremony witnessed by family and friends. Unlike other pieces of jewelry, wedding bands are worn every moment of every day. Therefore, it is essential that a wedding band is comfortable and compatible with a couple’s sense of style. 

The bride and groom-to-be should spend time viewing and researching band styles and materials prior to making a final decision. By browsing fine jewelry stores like Turley Jewelers, couples can gain a sense of their likes and dislikes.
