It might come as a shock but wedding bands are big business. They may not get the love from bloggers and websites that engagement rings do, but they are pretty darn important. After all, these are the rings you will exchange and receive, that seal the deal of you becoming husband and wife. Most people want something a little special.
There are of course the traditionalists who want a simple white or yellow gold band, and then there are the trendsetters who want something unique, maybe with a bit of quirk.
I never like to leave anyone out. So here are 10 styles hand picked, just for you, my lovely readers. Happy Shopping.

Rose gold is so of the moment, but it also has a timeless beauty, that even if it goes out of vogue tomorrow, you’ll still love every time you see it against your skin. This romantic diamond beauty is sure to have her heart beating a little faster. Best part, customizable stones. Not a diamond lover? You can choose from 23 stones to get a customized look that you will love for eternity. Now that’s what I call options.
5. Antique Romance 1
Sapphires and diamonds go together like pb&j; a match in perfect harmony. This Edwardian beauty, is sure to elicit lots of oohs and aahs from whoever sees it.
6. Antique Romance 2
I found two magnificent sapphire and diamond bands, and I couldn’t just include one, so I included both. This French stunner features vibrant oval sapphires and white round brilliant diamonds. It could also serve as an engagement ring for a bride who doesn’t want a diamond.
7. Trend 1: Stackable
2015 has lots of trends when it comes to bridal jewelry. One that I am a big fan of is the stackable ring look. After all, why have one, when you can have three? A girl can never have enough bling. Some of you may see the price on this piece and not consider it affordable. It’s definitely more expensive than most of the other rings featured here. I found cheaper options, but I really wasn’t comfortable with the quality. I also realized that when you split these up and price them individually they come out per ring to around the same price as many of the rings above, with that in mind I felt that these still qualified as affordable.
8. Trend 2: Color
Color is a great way to show off your personality, add some pop to your wedding ring, and it’s also a more affordable option when you leave out the diamonds. I love the fresh, modern take of this blue topaz, and london blue topaz 14k yellow gold, geometric band. You can customize the stones, but some stones like sapphires and rubies will bring the price up significantly.
9. Trend 3: Mixed Metals
I love the vintage vibe, which is super popular right now, and how the metals mix. I’m also a fan of the slightly satiny finish, it gives this ring a perfect old meets new look.
10. Trend 4: Curved Band
Halos have been all the rage for quite some time now. Because of the halo, they dont always lend themselves to being worn with traditional bands. Enter the curved band. The unique curve design allows the rings to lay flush, but often depending on your ring, you may need a custom setting. The curved band also looks great with a non halo ring, and gives a unique look.
Here’s to lots of happy occasions. Comment below and tell me which would you choose? I love hearing your feedback.
