Wedding Bands Buying Guide

A representation of your sacred bond of marriage, your wedding ring is a piece of jewelry that you will be wearing for the rest of your married life.

Read this guide to learn more about the different types of wedding bands in order to decide on your perfect wedding ring.

Women’s Wedding Bands:

From plain metal bands to diamond bands to gemstone bands, there are plenty of options when it comes to choosing a wedding band. You can choose to purchase a band that will match your engagement ring, or even the groom’s wedding band.

A plain metal band (a wedding band without stones) can be chosen in platinum, yellow gold, white gold, titanium, palladium, and silver. There are a few factors to consider when choosing a plain band:

  • Width : 2mm, 3mm, and 4mm are the most popular widths for women’s bands.
  • Finish Options : the most popular finish options are high-polished, satin, hammer-finished, sand blast, stone finish, and wire matt.
  • Style : some of the most popular styles are: Carved, Milgrain Edge, Knife Edge, Plain, Diamond cut, and Antique style.

Diamond wedding bands are extremely popular for women’s bands. Four of the main types are:

  • Eternity Bands : include diamonds or other gemstones that circle all the way around the ring.
  • Semi-Eternity or Half-Eternity : diamonds or colored gemstones circle half way around the ring.
  • Three-Stone : exactly as the name suggests, this ring includes three stones - usually diamonds.
  • Five-Stone : exactly as the name suggests, this ring includes five stones - usually diamonds.

It is traditional to wear a wedding band under the engagement ring on the left hand’s ring finger. If you choose to pair the rings this way, you must consider how they will look together. We have made this process easier for you by carrying a large selection of engagement rings with matching wedding bands, also known as bridal sets.
