Many couples choose the band while they are buying the engagement ring, but what we are finding more and more is that the couple is coming in together to purchase their bands at the same time. There are so many choices when it comes to the wedding band, from a diamond eternity band to a plain gold band. Some women choose to wear the band with their engagement ring, while others move the engagement ring to their right hand, preferring the wedding band to reside alone on the left.
The Symbolism of the Wedding Band
- The wedding band is traditionally a plain gold or silver band and is not decorated in any gemstones of any kind.
- The band is an unbroken circle that symbolizes the never-ending love of a husband and wife who have been joined together.
- Wearing the band on the fourth finger came from the Egyptians and this tradition has stuck because they believed that the fourth finger of the left hand was directly connected to the heart.
- A man wearing a wedding band is a more recent tradition, but shows a pledge of fidelity by the couple.
Different Styles of The Wedding Band
These days almost anything goes when it comes to the wedding band. It all depends on not only your personal style, but also on your engagement ring and whether or not you plan on wearing them together. You can get a wedding band made that will fit around your engagement ring or one that doesn’t, but we do suggest you use the same material, for instance yellow gold, white gold or platinum.
