Wedding Ring or Wedding Band - What's the difference?

By  , Tuesday, March 12, 2013

Wedding BandsTo quote Beyoncé; “If you like it then you should have put a ring on it”. She was probably referring to a diamond engagement ring, and we all know what those are. But when it’s time to march down the aisle and say your “I do’s”, do you put on a wedding ring or a wedding band – and what’s the difference?
Traditionally wedding bands were only worn by men. They were simple unembellished circles of metal with no diamonds or adornment at all. With some men, this remains the customary and preferred symbol of marriage to this very day. Because they are a never-ending circle, wedding bands are thought to symbolize love that lasts forever.   In the past, women were only given a family ring or gemstone to signify that they were “spoken for”. That custom didn’t last long.  Women soon began to wear wedding bands as well, right along side their engagement rings. The plain austere bands their husbands wore gave way to a decorated more feminine and delicate creation. Eventually, the term wedding band gradually morphed into being called a wedding ring.

Wedding Rings

Today the terms wedding band and wedding ring are pretty much interchangeable. Wedding rings are now available in many elegant and elaborate variations.  There’s a style for every possible taste, from the very intricate pave’ diamond wedding band to beautiful and bold eternity bands. You may prefer a tiny subtle sparkle or a big bling of a ring.  Diamond wedding rings can be bought separately or in matching sets. Some women choose to have their engagement rings and diamond wedding bands welded together and others wear them side by side as separate rings. Either way, there are endless possibilities for your choice of the jewelry you will wear on the third finger of your left hand – for the rest of your life.
