The Classic and Enduring Gold Wedding Band
For just about as long as gold has existed, it has been prized for its beauty and used to symbolize the importance of our relationships. There is likely no more enduring symbol of commitment than a gold wedding ring–there’s a reason that when you’re looking for a ring to represent love and commitment, you think of gold. It’s naturally tarnish-resistant, which makes it able to last for generations. Plus, gold is rare and beautiful, just like the most precious relationships.
Yellow gold wedding bands are perhaps the most popular type of gold used for wedding rings. This hue is warm and eye-catching, in a way that is commonly compared to sunbeams. Yellow gold can be plated or solid, and is commonly alloyed to help give it more strength. However, yellow isn’t the only option for gold. There are a few more popular hues to consider when you have your heart set on gold.
Rose gold wedding bands are a natural choice. The softer reddish hues of rose gold, create a warmer, more intimate feel to the ring overall. This red can range from soft pinkish and peachy to warmer, coppery shades.
White gold wedding bands give you a shining, silvery look without any worry of tarnishing. These alloys are known for their nearly white finishes, and high luster. If you want the look of platinum without the higher price tag, white gold is an excellent choice.
Whether you're looking for a men's gold wedding band or a women's gold wedding band, a custom jeweler can make your design dreams come true.
Wedding Band Finishes:
Though this step is often overlooked, choosing the right finish for your wedding band is just as important as selecting the metal and style. A wedding band finish refers to the surface texture or treatment of the band, and it has a huge impact on the ring’s overall aesthetic. Wedding band finishes can also affect the durability of your ring. That being said, wedding band finishes are a vital component in creating your custom wedding band.
High Polish Wedding Bands
The high polish finish is precisely what it sounds like. One of the most popular finishes for wedding rings, a high polish (also called “high gloss”) finish will bestow your ring with a smooth and reflective surface that gives the band a shiny, luxurious look. High polish finishes add striking luster to gold and platinum bands. However, they require regular maintenance to keep their shine. We recommend bringing your band in to your local jeweler for a cleaning every six months. Take care of your high polish wedding band and it’ll be catching eyes for many years to come.
Matte Wedding Bands
The counterpart to a high polish finish, the matte finish offers a soft, non-reflective surface which gives the band a more muted and understated look. The matte finish ring is an increasingly popular choice for men’s wedding bands in particular. It lets your ring’s accent elements speak for themselves. On the other hand, scratches and dents may be more visible against the subdued backdrop of a matte finish wedding band. Be sure to treat your matte wedding band with care and remove it during potentially damaging activities.
Brushed Wedding Bands
A brushed finish has a textured surface with fine lines or grooves running across the band, creating a unique and modern look. To create this texture, a jeweler will run a fine wire brush across the surface of the metal. The obvious advantage of a brushed finish, aside from its attractive appearance, is that it is durable and hides scratches well. However, it may require more cleaning to keep the thin grooves free of buildup.
Hammered Wedding Bands
A hammered finish has a rustic and organic texture, resembling the marks left by a hammer or chisel. Hammered finishes are unique and eye-catching, and may camouflage minor, everyday wear-and-tear. Hammered bands are typically somewhere in between matte and glossy–reflective, but not too shiny. They are a great choice for anyone seeking an earthy aesthetic.
Add Sparkle With Diamond and Gemstone Wedding Bands
Diamonds are a rare and beautiful stone, and their enduring quality makes them a romantic symbol to represent a lasting relationship.
There are many popular styles of diamond wedding bands. However, you really can’t go wrong by designing your own with the help of a skilled jeweler. By far the best way to do diamond wedding bands is to go full custom. You can choose from various settings like the popular, delicate pavé wedding band style or go bold with prominent stones set in an eternity wedding band.
Another option is to add gemstones to your wedding band. Many gemstones do not have the durability necessary to stand up to daily wear, but if you'd like a little color a ruby or sapphire wedding band may be the way to go. These gemstones are strong enough to withstand a lifetime on your ring finger. The best part is that custom jewelry design jewelry experts know what works and what doesn’t.
The sky is the limit when it comes to adding sparkle to your custom wedding ring. An expert bench jeweler can create something that’s special to you and perfectly suited to your personal tastes. They’re skilled artisans who have a wealth of experience in creating beautiful designs. They can give you subdued, bold, classic and timeless, or modern and flashy.

With so many things to concern yourself with while the wedding approaches, your wedding bands shouldn’t be one of them. Your wedding ring should be as unique as your relationship, a symbol meant to last forever. Create something to reflect your story with a band custom made by a jeweler who cares.
