Ultimate Guide To Women's Wedding Bands
What types of women’s wedding bands are there? Do I wear it on the inside or outside? Should I solder? Read on for the answers.
We’re all for non-conventional, however, most women choose to wear both an engagement ring AND wedding band. This is known as a “bridal set” in the jewelry industry.
Some jewelry stores sell complete, coordinating bridal sets. But, you can always choose to build your own ring set with a traditional women’s wedding band OR go bold with an alternative women’s wedding band inlaid with a unique material, such as meteorite or an exotic hardwood.
Read on to learn more about design options, common ring elements and to get some women’s wedding band design inspiration.
WOMEN'S WEDDING BAND STYLES
The options for women's wedding bands are endless and no matter what your style, you can find or custom create your perfect band. Generally speaking bands are either straight or curved, but the features beyond that can vary from all-metal to multi-stone and inlaid.
Straight bands are aptly named for their symmetrical, circular shapes and are commonly worn alone or paired with an engagement ring, depending on the engagement ring design.
Shadow Wedding Bands (aka Contour or Curved Band)
Rarely worn alone, shadow bands are named for the way that they perfectly curve and contour the shape of the engagement ring that they’re worn tightly beside. Some are designed with multiple curves and points while others have a subtle, small curve that results in a perfect fit against the engagement ring. They run the gamut in style from simple, all-metal bands to multi-material and gemstone rings.
Eternity wedding bands, sometimes referred to as infinity bands, get their names from the endless circle of stones or a pattern on the ring. Some believe this is representative of your endless love. Eternity bands can be crafted with a contour or straight shape and are worn alone or paired with an engagement ring.
