While engagement ring bling may be the center of attention, selecting the perfect wedding band is just as important. Your band can either highlight your diamond or be a statement-making piece of its own. Let’s explore the various types of wedding bands.

Metal Band

The classic metal band is the most common and is generally crafted from platinum, 18k, 14k white, yellow or rose gold as well as our new favorite palladium. Some alternatives include titanium and stainless steel. The metal band complements any style engagement ring and its ideal to layer with other bands.

Pavé Band

This particular band is absolutely beautiful as the diamonds are encrusted into the metal. These match perfectly with a cushion cut solitaire. We suggest these bands for brides who desire the shimmer of a diamond band without the look of prongs.

Eternity Band

Eternity bands are the ultimate symbol of unending love. Whether worn as a wedding band, anniversary ring or stackable, eternity rings are timeless, sophisticated and classic.

The two most common styles of eternity bands are shared prong setting and channel setting. In a shared prong , two stones are situated next to one another and share a prong. From the side, they share the shape of the letter ‘u.’  The channel set mounting has diamonds that are placed side by side and set down a “channel” of metal.

Although there are two main styles, there are endless options to explore. Eternity bands can be set in numerous ways and you can incorporate most any diamond shape.

There are so many ways to seal the deal!
