Wedding Ring Trends To Watch Out For
It’s been rumoured that Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are married, though if this is true, they are opting not to wear wedding rings for the moment – a situation that could change once they hold their official wedding celebration with all the trimmings: the dress, the reception, and of course – the rings. If you are planning your own wedding and wonder what it will feel like to never take a ring off, feast your eyes on the new trends that are making a wedding band not only symbolic, but also, incredibly fashionable. If one word defines new trends in jewelry, it is definitely ‘diversity’. New materials, styles, and artistic features are making wedding ring selection more exciting than ever.
Insider recently noted that one of the hottest trends in weddings this year is outdoor weddings, a reflection of the millennial passion for sustainability. Not only will more receptions be taking place in green surrounds, but eco inspirations will be seen in table décor (in the form of seeded eucalyptus), ceremony aisles (with greener garlands holding sway) and furniture (think natural wood tables topped with succulents and other naturally hued plant varieties). Jewelry will pick up on this trend with wedding rings blending metal and wood. Think pristine white gold blended with luxury materials such as Hawaiian golden koa; the key is to opt for woods that reflect the sheen of the metal.
Top jewelry houses are harking back to a trend inspired by Audrey Hepburn: stackable rings. Some couples give each ring on an occasion – for instance, the engagement, wedding, and honeymoon. Others sport three or more at the ceremony itself. To make the most of this trend, blend sparkly bands with simple metallic ones, using additional stacked rings on other fingers for a youthful look.
Finally, those who love mixing metals are free to let their creativity shine! Wider wedding bands can contain yellow, white, and rose gold, either as joined bands or in designer features. Some designers are taking it to the next level, with stacked ring designs in different metals, each ring fitting into the other to complete a luxurious puzzle.
Custom-made wedding sets
Brides wishing to integrate their engagement rings and wedding bands are opting for bespoke designs that ensure the metals and materials in both pieces complement each other perfectly, so much so that they can comprise one wide ring design. A larger diamond in an engagement ring works beautifully alongside a more delicate sparkly band with ring guards that unite it seamlessly with the larger king. Also seen of late are designs in which the wedding bands continues with a design theme established in the engagement ring (for instance, a heart or geometric shape).
It’s an exciting time indeed for lovers of fine jewelry, who wish to turn their wedding band into a work of art. Eco rings, meanwhile, speak volumes about one’s passion for the environment, while mixed metals are ideal for those who like to break new ground. If one thing is clear about new wedding band trends, it is that they are anything but boring. On the contrary; they provide a great opportunity for those into arty, creative pieces that people will love asking about.
