Trend focus: White gold and platinum diamond wedding rings
At Weddings Rings 2U we’ve seen a steady move towards white metals with white gold and platinum diamond wedding rings proving popular for him and her.
White gold and platinum have dominated both the wedding and engagement ring scene for a number of years, and now the trend for platinum diamond wedding rings is gaining even more momentum.
Evolution of wedding rings: from yellow gold bands to platinum diamond wedding rings
Once upon a time the traditional (and somewhat limited) choice for a wedding ring was a plain band of yellow gold that fitted closely to the diamond engagement ring. However, now, the addition of diamonds, or other precious stones, to the secondary ring means that there is a huge variety to choose from – everything from engraved wedding rings and rings set with sapphires and rubies, to platinum diamond wedding rings– and couples are understandably spoilt for choice!
Whatever precious metal or stone you choose it’s important that you love your wedding ring, (you’ll be wearing it every day for years to come!) so take your time in choosing it, allowing plenty of time before your wedding day.
White gold and platinum diamond wedding rings: a word about each
White gold wedding rings are popular due to their brilliant shine and polished finish. A white gold ring will only need an occasional clean to maintain its appearance, making it a beautiful yet fuss-free choice. White gold is lighter weight to wear than platinum, which is a heavier metal.
Platinum is a popular choice for its enduring qualities – although it’s more expensive, as it’s a rarer metal (30 times more rare than gold) – and it is also ideal for holding gem stones securely, which is another reason why platinum diamond wedding rings are increasingly popular.
A unique ring for a unique wedding
As wedding styles have become more unique and non-traditional, the demand has grown for a wider choice in wedding rings and for jewellery which makes a statement for the individual wearer. Platinum diamond wedding rings have brought a new dimension to the appearance of wedding rings – either with a few diamonds set into the wedding band itself (popular with both men and women), or a sparkling circlet of diamonds channel set in platinum, which creates the look of a diamond eternity ring.
