Three hands and only two rings.

Today, many engaged women are opting to get a plain wedding band. There are several reasons for this new trend. For one, some women want their wedding band to complement a large engagement ring. They may have an engagement ring featuring a diamond surrounded by other stones and prefer a wedding ring with a more subtle design. Discover some other reasons why plain wedding bands are becoming more popular with women.

Some women enjoy looking at the elegant beauty of plain wedding band. They like to look down and see a simple gold, platinum or silver ring that is perfectly crafted. Perhaps they have other rings that are more ornate and wanted a wedding band with a different look. Many women like to have a lot of variety in their jewelry collection. Allurez Diamonds and Fine Jewelry is one example of a place that has a selection of plain wedding bands for women.

Another reason why more women are choosing a plain wedding band is to match their husband’s ring. Grooms can opt for handcrafted men’s wedding bands. They want a plain ring that is identical in style and color to the one their husband will wear. This gives the ring even more meaning during a wedding ceremony and for years afterward.

Finally, some women like to have a plain wedding band featuring a significant inscription. The inscription could be the same as the one on her husband’s wedding band. She may even be fulfilling a beloved family tradition by including a particular inscription on her wedding band.

Do you have a wedding band? If so, what does it look like? Planning your live wedding music is also an important part of your wedding day. It should be next on the list after you’ve chosen your wedding venue, picked your caterers and sorted your theme.

    I always wanted a plain gold band until I saw the matching bands that we have. It’s got three colors – gold, silver, copper – repeated on a diagonal around the ring. It’s gold on the edges. It sounds horrific and garish to describe it, but I think it’s really lovely. πŸ™‚
