This 21st century, embrace love’s evolution as tradition meets contemporary allure. Here, we share 5 charming wedding band trends for you to fall in love with!
Getting married is an exciting and intimate stage of one’s life journey that not everyone gets to experience. And once you reel it all in, the urge to make the entire occasion uniquely yours strengthens when you realise you are one of the lucky ones blessed with the opportunity to embark on this forever love journey with your true love. But as you reach the stage of researching dreamy wedding band trends in hopes of gaining an idea or two of what you would like as yours, you may find that traditional gold or platinum wedding bands just don’t seem to cut it anymore – at least, this is true for most.
These days, more and more couples want something meaningful, unique, and reflective of their personal style for every part of their wedding, rings included. In fact, there has been a surge in recent years in wedding rings and bands that break the mould and offer a fresh take on this timeless symbol of love and commitment. If you’re searching high and low for the wedding band that reflects your love story like no other, look no further. In this article, we have rounded up five exciting wedding band trends that are sure to capture your heart and leave a lasting impression!
- Mixed metal bands: Celebrating contrast and harmony
Gone are the days of choosing a single metal for your wedding band. Couples are now embracing the beauty of mixed metal bands, which combine different metals to create a unique and eye-catching design.
Take Love & Co.’s LVC Desirio Allure Wedding Band in White and Rose Gold with a Glossy Finish, for example. Designed flawlessly with an elegant line of rose gold running across the band to give it an elegant and sophisticated finish, the contrast between the warm and cool tones creates a visually striking effect. But that’s not the best part; as stunning as the band is aesthetically, its symbolism is equally lovely! Mixed metal bands reflect the coming together of two individuals, celebrating their differences and finding harmony in their union. A band that perfectly represents the blending of your personalities and styles, it’s a lovely way to showcase your unique love story.
- Nature-inspired bands: Embracing the beauty of the outdoors
It is no secret that nature-inspired wedding bands have become increasingly popular among nature-obsessed couples who want to incorporate elements of the natural world into their rings. These bands often feature intricate designs that mimic flowers, leaves, or even the delicate texture of tree bark. They can be crafted from a variety of materials, including white gold, rose gold, or even sustainably sourced wood.
Imagine proposing in the forest with nothing but the enchanting symphony of nature surrounding you during an intimate hiking adventure with your significant other. Then, exchanging vows under a canopy of trees while wearing matching nature-inspired bands that beautifully celebrate your love for each other and your shared appreciation for the wonders of nature. For nature lovers, these bands sure serve as a constant reminder of the serenity and beauty found in the great outdoors.
- Customised engravings: Personalising your love story
Custom engravings have been a sought-after choice for couples who want to add a personal touch to their wedding bands. While traditional engravings may include initials or wedding dates, more couples are taking it a step further by engraving meaningful handwritten messages, song lyrics, and quotes. Not only is it adorable to surprise your loved one with a wedding band that holds a secret message only the two of you know, but these personalised engravings are also a heartfelt way to create a lasting memory.
Diamond wedding jewellery is almost always better when it’s personalised to fit your unique love story. At Love & Co., we understand this, which is why we provide a bespoke engagement ring service, in which our designers are dedicated to ensuring that your designs are brought to life for the engagement ring of your dreams!
- Gemstone accents: Adding a pop of colour
While diamonds have long been the traditional choice for engagement rings, did you know that many couples are now opting for gemstone accents in their wedding bands to add a splash of colour and personality? Emeralds, rubies, sapphires, and birthstones are being incorporated into band designs of today, creating a vibrant yet meaningful look. The highlight of gemstone accents, you may ask? Well, they can be used to represent a birthstone, a significant date, or simply to reflect the couple’s favourite colours. Whatever the symbolism may be, it is heartwarming to know that it is more than enough as long as it makes sense to both of you.
- Vintage-inspired bands: Bringing a touch of nostalgia
A charming choice for couples who appreciate the elegance and craftsmanship of bygone eras, vintage-inspired wedding bands often draw inspiration from Edwardian, Victorian, or Art Deco designs that feature milgrain detailing, intricate filigree work, or antique-inspired gemstone settings. By choosing a vintage-inspired band, you can add a touch of nostalgia to your special, connecting your love story to the romance of the past.
If you’d like to marry the vintage and modern look together, our LVC Purete Wedding Band with Milgrain Design in Platinum, for example, is the epitome of what you are looking for. Finished with two rings of detailed milgrain design to create a modern and unique look for its wearer, this wedding band is as romantic and sentimental as you’d like it to be.
