Wedding bands are about more than just the bling. They symbolize the everlasting commitment you make with your partner. Finding that perfect band, one which resonates with your unique style and personality, while also symbolizing your union, is important towards making your wedding day all the more memorable.
Sometimes, shopping for wedding bands can seem a little intimidating, especially with all the choices available. At Thomas Markle Jewelers, our associates specialize in educating customers on every possible option. That way, you get a comprehensive look of all the different types and styles before making your pick! But, to give you a head start, we’ve profiled a few of our favorites below.
If you want a timeless, traditional look, you can't go wrong with a classic metal band. Simple, yet elegant, the classic band is a popular choice to symbolize undying love. This Hearts on Fire Half-Round Band comes in white, yellow and rose gold, as well as platinum.
Eternity bands take the symbolism of never-ending love one step further with 360 degrees of shimmering diamond adornment. These bands are not only great for weddings, but also to mark special anniversaries and occasions. One of the more popular styles features a single line of small to medium-size diamonds, such as in this brilliant Hearts on Fire Diamond Milgrain Eternity Band.
Some eternity bands feature smaller diamonds, set more closely together, sometimes in multiple rows. This placement style is called pavé and results in a shimmering line of pure sparkle, like the Straight Pavé Diamond Wedding Band from Michael M.
Anniversary / Multi-Stone Bands
Similar to Eternity Bands, Anniversary Bands utilize a continuous line of diamonds. However, the diamonds generally stop at the halfway mark with Anniversary Bands, leaving the back half bare. These diamonds can vary in size and sometimes feature 2 to 7 larger stones. In those cases, the style of band is referred to as a 3-stone, 5-stone, 7-stone band, etc… Anniversary and Multi-Stone Bands are an excellent choice for brides looking to add extra sparkle, shine and attention to their engagement ring. Here is one of our favorites from Hearts on Fire.
Curved wedding bands, also known as notched or chevron wedding bands, are made with a curve on one side. They are designed to be worn comfortably alone or to curve perfectly around the center stone of your engagement ring. The curve can be more dramatic like the Gabriel & Co band on the left or more subtle, like this Michael M band on the right.
Stackable bands, as the name suggests, can be stacked, allowing you to add bling to your ring as your relationship changes and grows. Sometimes they are part of an interlocking design. Contemporary, chic and comfortable, stackable bands can be purchased individually after the wedding to celebrate other important milestones. These ombre pink and ombre blue sapphire bands compliment each other perfectly and would be an exquisite accompaniment to any diamond engagement ring.
