Wedding Ring Styles for 2018
26 June 2018
The ring has played an integral role in the marriage ceremonies for centuries to help the couple pledge their commitment to each other. Since it has no beginning or end, it symbolises the eternity of love. In recent years, there has been in shift away from the traditional wedding rings to choices that are unique and exciting. Nowhere is this more evident than in the following most popular wedding ring styles for 2018.
One trend in wedding bands in 2018 is gemstone bands. The bride can select her favourite coloured gemstone to enhance her wedding band and her engagement when there is one. Colourful bands such as these broadcast the individuality of you and your partner.
BANDS OR BAND SETS THAT INCLUDE A MIX OF METALS
A mix of metals in bands or band sets is another ‘in’ style in wedding rings in 2018. Yellow, rose or white gold, and platinum are just some examples of fine metals that you can find in these bands today. You can select to have a mixture of metals in a singular band or in multiple ones depending upon your preferences.
This year’s bands also can contain unique textures. Not only are the traditional smooth and brushed textures available, but you also can select a hammered, matt or custom finish to suit your preferences.
STACKABLE WEDDING BANDS
Stackable bands also are a popular style in wedding bands in 2018. Typically, these rings are ornate in nature with intricate designs in them. You can mix or match the metal and/or designs.
For years, diamond wedding bands have been popular and the same holds true for 2018. Smaller diamonds than the ones on your engagement ring can help enhance not only the band but also your engagement ring setting.
INLAYED PATTERNS ON MEN’S WEDDING BANDS
Men’s wedding bands rarely include stones, but there is no rule against this either. One feature that is rising in popularity with these bands, though, is an inlaid area of wood or contrasting colour of metal. Of course, your man may prefer a simpler band and there are plenty of styles from which to choose in this type of band at present.
ENGRAVED WEDDING BANDS
Engraving special sayings on the interior of the wedding bands has been a tradition for many years. We have seen this trend move to the outer parts of these bands during 2018, and this creates unique bands.
