Stylish Matching Wedding Bands for Brides and Grooms

By on November 21, 2017
Matching Wedding Bands for Brides and Grooms

Worn by women for hundreds of years, it isn’t until recently (since World War ll) that men have joined in on the tradition of wearing wedding bands to mark their union. And with an endless selection of designers and styles, modern couples can easily express their shared love for one another with matching wedding bands while still showing off their individual style.

Matching wedding bands is a great way to publically honor the marriage for a lifetime to come, but what does matching really mean? it could mean a number of things, but for our purposes we are considering matching wedding bands, bands that are complementary in precious metal (yellow gold, rose gold, white gold, platinum, etc.), similar stone use (diamonds, colored diamonds), same style (pave, prong, channel), and/or same finish (polished, matte, hammered). What’s more, many contemporary designers craft bridal rings for both men and women, so couples have an easier time finding matching bands from their favorite designer.

To make your shopping experience easier, below we select matching women’s and men’s wedding bands from some of our favorite designers in traditional, contemporary, and alternative styles.

“Something Blue” Fashion Jewelry Pieces for the Stylish Bride

By on November 2, 2017

With this year coming to a close and engagement season coming up, it’s time to once again revisit all our favorite bridal things.
