Traditional Wedding Rings

The wedding ring is one matrimonial tradition that lives on, even as other trends change and evolve. The ring is actually worn as a symbol of the commitment of the other person, rather than as a sign that you’re spoken for or as a reminder of your own commitment, and the giving of rings is considered an integral part of the ceremony, regardless of religion, denomination, or belief. You will wear your wedding ring for the rest of your life, so it is important that you select and buy a wedding ring that you are happy wearing, and that you can wear comfortably for a very long period of time.
The most traditional of designs is that of the simple, golden band. To the traditionalist, the engagement ring will be big and flamboyant, while the wedding rings worn by both parties will be simple. However, there are a variety of metals, colours, styles, and even adornments that can add beauty and appeal to the ring. Bespoke wedding rings from Mode Diamonds enable you to choose the metal, the design, and the style of ring that you wear.
If you opt for gold, remember that while 22ct gold is the rarest and most expensive, it is also very soft. It may become damaged if worn all day, every day, and 18ct gold is a better option, especially if you have a job that means the ring is in danger of being bumped or scratched. For those with particularly physical jobs, 14ct or even 9ct gold may be a better option.
Platinum is considerably stronger than gold, and it is also a lot rarer. It will last a lifetime without showing any signs of wear and tear, but it is more expensive than gold. For women that have a platinum engagement ring, a more affordable option is a white gold wedding band.
White gold is extremely attractive, and coated in rhodium to increase its good looks. This will need to be reapplied after some time, but it will still work out being less expensive than a platinum wedding ring.
Diamond wedding rings sets have grown in popularity. Not only are diamonds becoming more popular with brides, but many more grooms are including a diamond in their ring, too. Heart-in-Diamond offers particularly unique and meaningful options for rings.
Remember that the giving of a wedding ring is a sign of your commitment and love, and it is a piece of jewellery that will not only last a lifetime, but that will be worn with regularity. People will also want to see the ring, which means showing it off, so it is vital that you choose something that you are both happy with and that will offer beautiful looks and trouble free wearing.
