Finding true love in life is the most precious and sweetest thing. For some people, it only comes once in a lifetime. Love is a sacred union that should be treasured by the heart, mind, body and soul and the ultimate demonstration of the love between two people is to bind themselves together by getting married.
One traditional and iconic way a man or a woman can demonstrate their love in a symbolic sense is with diamond wedding bands. Rather than just a plain gold wedding band, a wedding ring with one or more diamonds adorning it really makes the ring extra special.
Let’s take a closer look at diamond wedding bands so you can decide if it’s the right choice for you.
What Do Diamonds Symbolise?
One description of diamonds is that they represent life, light and the sun. A Diamond is also a symbol of perfection and purity; a stone with invincible spiritual power. Diamonds are also highly regarded as the stone of love, representing faithfulness, commitment and a promise of love between two people, especially when they wed.
The diamond is a love bearing crystal and it’s been considered the symbol of love now for many centuries.
Women’s Diamond Wedding Bands
Diamond wedding bands are a little more expensive than a plain wedding band, but what price can you put on eternal love?
While you can also buy diamond wedding rings for men, it’s still more common for women to wear them and the range to choose from is far more extensive. Possibly the most common women’s diamond wedding band is a band surrounded by tiny brilliant cut diamonds. It’s a style that looks absolutely dazzling on any woman’s ring finger and one that’s sure to create a lasting impression. White gold and yellow gold are the two most common gold colours for this range of diamond wedding rings. It’s really a matter of personal choice, but white gold pairs exceptionally well with a ring encrusted in small stones.
For variation, you can purchase a ring adorned with coloured diamonds rather than white diamonds. This creates a very unique and special kind of wedding ring, whether you choose pink, yellow, or decide to mix up clear diamonds with other coloured stones such as rubies or emeralds.
Whatever ring style you decide to go for, your bride is sure to love it and treasure it for the rest of her days.
How Do You Wear Diamond Wedding Bands?
When choosing a diamond wedding band rather than a plain wedding ring, there are some other things to consider. To begin with, you’ll generally want to match up the gold colour with the chosen colour of the engagement ring. Secondly, you’ll want the style of the diamond wedding ring to match well with the engagement ring’s design. Some styles can clash a little, so keep this in mind. A third thing to think about is whether the diamond wedding ring fits together well on the finger with the engagement ring.
Traditionally, the wedding band is placed behind the engagement ring when placed on the ring finger. However, the choice is up to the individual how they will wear their engagement and wedding rings. Sometimes it can be more practical to wear the rings around the other way, opposite to tradition, depending on the style and weight of the two rings and how well they fit on the finger.
The reason wedding rings are traditionally worn on the ring finger of the left hand is that the left hand is closer to the heart. It’s once again symbolic of the heart-felt love being shared between two people. Nothing says love quite like dazzling diamonds do.
