I was thinking about possible topics for the blog this week and I kept thinking until I came across something and I told myself, “How can you do this”?
So yeah, one cannot argue whether this topic is more inclined towards the feminine gender or the masculine but because a wedding day is all about exchanging the rings, wait a second is it ALL about exchanging rings? *winks*
Not really, but yeah it is the most essential part of a wedding which takes a lot of thinking before you decide which ring you would want to gift your loved one on the most special day.
A woman has to have one of the best rings that a human could possibility have, best cannot be quantified here because what’s best today is of no good after a month. You need to pick something that can be wearable and that can be carried along for the time to come.
If you are making an impression on your wife to be, than you need to get her the ring that can deliver the “wow” factor. Wedding rings are a gesture of love, so you don’t want your spouse to remember you by looking at an ugly ring. The world is moving at a very fast pace and so are the trends in each and everything that is linked to anything. Let’s go through some trends in wedding rings!
In the elegant pavé setting, tiny, faceted, fully cut stones are set as close together as possible so you can’t see the metal around them (see picture above). Think of it as if the metal band has been paved with diamonds. The pavé look offers bling without being outlandish. We’re seeing pavé in metals from yellow gold to platinum.
The Vintage Look
What’s old is decidedly new this season. The subtle and delicate look of vintage-inspired rings is in. Stones on these rings are recognizable for their Old European round center cut, but you’ll also see gorgeous Asscher cuts and others too. The defining details: minimal scroll-like engraving, microset (tiny, half-point) diamonds, delicate milgrain work (raised beaded edges), and filigree
Canary yellow diamonds, blue and pink sapphires, even rare light pink diamonds are appearing on fourth fingers everywhere. Color can go modern (opt for a tension setting), classic (with a four-prong setting), or vintage (a filigreed setting). Whether you choose your favorite color or your birthstone, a colored stone is a great way to make a stylish statement.
Two, three, or more bands “stacked” together make a terrific statement. Eternity bands (stones all the way around) look great piled together. Whether your stones are channel set (flush with the metal) or pavé, or even if you just opt for metal bands — the look is modern and flexible: Wear it with your engagement ring or without. The best part is that you can start with one and he’ll have anniversary gift possibilities for the next few years.
