Wedding Ring Styles
Yellow Gold Wedding Bands
Yellow gold has a beautiful rich glow that makes it a time-honored classic choice for wedding rings. Plus, it's hypoallergenic and rust-, tarnish-, and corrosion-resistant. The two karatages differ slightly in color, durability and hardness. 14k yellow gold is slightly richer in color than 18k gold. It's also harder and a bit more resistant to scratching.
White Gold Wedding Bands
Our customers love white gold for its platinum-like appearance at a lower cost. White gold achieves its signature silver-y brilliance and enhanced durability by mixing pure gold with nickel and silver, and then plating with rhodium. While this plating is long-wearing, some occasional replating may be required to restore the original color of your white gold wedding band.
Sapphire Wedding Bands
Although sapphires are associated with their velvety-blue hue, they come in a rainbow of colors, including pink. In addition to their beauty, sapphire wedding bands are a popular choice because this gemstone's natural hardness makes it ideal for everyday wear. A traditional symbol of nobility, truth, and romance, the most prized sapphires have good transparency and vibrant depth of color.
Ruby Wedding Bands
A ruby is identical to a sapphire in every way but color. Both stones are the same mineral, corundum. What makes a ruby a ruby is its fiery crimson hue, associated with romance, devotion and vitality. Like sapphires, rubies are hard, and this strength makes it ideal for a wedding ring that you wear every day.
Emerald Wedding Bands
Emeralds have been prized for centuries around the world for their definitive green hue and their association with Venus, the goddess of love. A variety of beryl, truly flawless specimens of emerald are exceptionally rare. The finest quality emerald gemstones have lush, saturated color in the richest green.
