A wedding ring or wedding band typically is a flat finger ring which signifies that its holder is now married. It’s generally forged of silver or some other precious metal and is often made from a single metal piece. It can be sized to fit the joint, and comes in a variety of settings. The most common setting for wedding rings is with a metal band resting across the ring finger (now called a wedding band) and a gold or platinum band forming a circle over the joint. Some rings have a small number of diamonds set into the metal or may have diamonds on the edge or sides of the band. Many modern rings have combined both the band and the diamond, making it a three stone ring.
Wedding rings can also come in a variety of styles. Many early Roman wedding rings had a metal ring, with either a large number of stones set into it, or a simple one stone setting. In Roman times, gold was considered the most valuable and desirable metal, so it’s no wonder that early wedding rings were made of such precious metals. For instance, the ring styles found in the late 1st century AD would have a large number of large, thin, black stone. This ring style is referred to as a Simplicius.
Over the years, wedding rings have been worn for a variety of reasons and in a wide range of styles. One of the most common wedding ring styles is the interlocking bands. This style consists of two rings which are each bent into several other smaller rings, where each of these rings will cover half of an engagement ring. These types of wedding rings are very popular with men. They offer a masculine look that women find attractive.
Another style of ring is known as a cluster. A cluster is a collection of several rings, usually of the same size and color, which often circle the engagement ring. Many people believe that clusters make the engagement rings much more visible and eye-catching on the wedding day. They can be much easier to slip on and off, and they also create a nice pattern in the surrounding ring metal.
A unique style of ring involves the use of three diamonds. A diamond is placed on the band of the ring, with another diamond on top of the first one. This type of ring requires that the bride or groom purchase three separate diamonds of the same size, color, and carat. This will ensure that the diamond’s line up perfectly, with the whole diamond acting like a natural border around the engagement ring.
Finally, many couples have recently been interested in “floating” bands. This is where multiple diamonds are evenly spaced around a central diamond. Many people believe that the floating bands look more like real diamonds, and therefore this style of rings has become very popular. These bands can be very expensive because of the material and workmanship required to create them, but they will make an excellent engagement ring if done right.
