About Diamond Wedding Bands

The origin of the traditional of wedding band used in marriage ceremonies dates back thousand of years to the Egyptians. Wedding bands were rings created in the shape of a circle, the symbol of eternity, with natural plant material. It was the ultimate symbol of a beautiful life long union and it is the same today. Although the materials and styles are very different today, the tradition is the same and a band, a circle with no beginning or end, worn on the finger will stand as a token of eternal love and dedication.

Women’s wedding bands have gone through many transformations since ancient times and today fine wedding bands are created with precious metals and they may include diamond or gemstone accents. A simple yellow gold wedding band is traditional for many cultures, but today in many countries wedding bands for women vary greatly in material and style.

Ceremonial wedding bands can be created in white, yellow, or rose gold or platinum. The design could be simple or intricate with braids, engravings, or milgrain detail depending on the taste of the wearer. For a women’s wedding band with more sparkle, the ring may be adorned with quality small diamonds for a dainty look or larger brilliant diamonds for a bolder look. Diamond wedding bands for women make an exceptional statement. No matter the style of the band, it will represent an everlasting commitment of love.
