Atmosphere Productions: Choosing Wedding Rings That Will Express Your Love Forever

After the bouquet is tossed, the cake is cut, and music from the last dance has faded away, one part of your wedding endures—your wedding rings.  While these tokens may not be the details that catch the eye of your guests, you and your spouse will look at them every day—hopefully, for the rest of your lives. Your choice should reflect who you are, as individuals and a couple.

Match Game
Do your rings have to match? Not unless you want them to. For some women, it’s critical that their engagement ring and wedding band go perfectly together. If the band is also expected to match the husband’s, that may seriously limit his choices. So don’t feel pressured to buy wedding bands as a matched set. The reality is, you’re not going to be physically attached at the left hand for the next fifty years: no one will notice or care if you’re not wearing identical rings. If coordination is important to you, get rings of the same metal with complementary, but not identical, styles.

Style Points

Speaking of style, what is yours? Plain gold bands, or bands with a beaded edge, are classic and will look good forever. For something a bit more eye-catching, consider a custom-designed band with stones. There’s a reason aside from beauty that diamonds are the stone most commonly used in wedding rings: they’re the hardest stone. Symbolically speaking, this represents the durability of the marriage. On the practical side, it means the ring that looks beautiful as you say your vows will still look beautiful after years of daily wear. If you want to customize with different stones, rubies and sapphires are other good choices. If you’re looking for something truly one-of-a-kind, contact a local art school or gallery and ask to be put in touch with a jewelry designer.

Material Girls (and Guys)

Let’s say you want to branch out beyond traditional silver, gold, platinum, and gemstones. What are your options? Tungsten and stainless steel have appeared as lower cost, and highly durable options.  Another emerging trend is to have a metal band, usually tungsten or titanium, inlaid with a classic or exotic hardwood.  And what if you’re not into jewelry at all? Ink may be your wedding band “material” of choice. While a tattooed wedding ring may sound trendy, some cultures have done it for centuries. And think of the advantages— you can design it yourself, it won’t feel heavy on your hand, and it will never, ever slip down the sink by accident.
