Choosing your wedding bands is a big decision, as you will after all, be wearing them for a long time to come, and there are many factors to consider; style, comfort and affordability being amongst the most important.

For the Bride, the most important thing is finding a wedding band that compliments your engagement ring; ensuring that the two rings look as if they are meant to be worn together. That is not to say that they always have to 'match', the secret to the perfect combination lies in finding a wedding band that enhances your engagement ring, rather than overshadows it.

This means considering the shape (profile), the width and depth of the band; and if you are considering adding diamonds, the shape, the cut and the setting style of the stones. The choice of metal will depend on your engagement ring, as we would always recommend that the rings be made of the same metal; as in the long term, they will wear better together.

For the Groom the decision will probably be based mainly on style and comfort. The metal choice may be made to match that of your bride's ring, whether that be 18ct Gold, Patinum or Palladium, or it may be that you are instantly drawn to a particular metal type, it might also be that you need the ring to be particularly light, or that you want the metal to be particularly hard wearing, so you would choose something like Palladium or Platinum.

Whatever aspects influence your choice, Rings for Eternity can offer you an extensive range of bespoke made wedding bands in 18ct Gold, Platinum and Palladium, in a style that will give you a lifetime of wear and years of pleasure.

Use the Style finder guide below to help you start to choose your rings, and then contact us to make an appointment to view the entire range.

Diamond Shapes and Cut (rollover each image for a introduction and click for a detailed description)

Diamond Guide|Fire, Life and Brilliance, the essential elements of a diamond.<br />
<br />
There are many ways to describe the beauty and quality of a diamond, and the one that you ultimately fall in love with, will have a unique combination of 3 elements that give the diamond its individual character.<br />
 <br />
<br />
The Four 'C's|A diamond grading system known as the the ‘Four Cs’, is used to describe the quality of a cut diamond. Each of the Four Cs describes the specific characteristics by which a diamond's quality is measured - its Cut, Colour, Clarity and Carat weight.
Classic Round Brilliant|The Round Brilliant Cut Diamond is the classic image of a solitaire diamond, and its reflective quality and internal beauty has set the standard for all other diamond shapes.

Diamond Shapes and Cut

Every diamond is unique, with its own 'life story' and characteristics; the elements which determine its colour, brilliance and reflective qualities. There are many factors to consider when choosing a diamond, the most constricting of which is your budget, which will ultimately affect both the size and quality of the stone, but start by choosing your diamond shape and cut.

Our guide to buying diamonds will point you in the right direction, but for expert advise in diamond selection, book an appointment and we will be happy to advise you.

Princess cut|A Princess cut diamond is a square or rectangular shape, with numerous sparkling facets, designed for getting maximum brilliance from a square cut.
Emerald Cut|The Emerald Cut Diamond is a rectangular shape with cut corners. It is known as a step cut because its concentric broad, flat planes resemble stair steps.
Fancy Cut Diamonds|The term 'Fancy Cut' diamonds refers to cuts and shapes that are modified versions of popular cuts. Fancy cuts can generally be grouped into four categories: modified brilliants, step cuts, mixed cuts, and rose cuts.<br />
<br />

Setting Style (rollover each image for a introduction and click for a detailed description)

Channel Setting|On either side of a row of calibrated diamonds, two strips of metal; gold, platinum or palladium are used to create a channel, in which the diamonds are set side-by-side. <br />
<br />
The gems are set flush with the metal, with just the slightest amount of metal covering the edge of the stones, which offers protection, but slightly diminishes the ability for light to shine through.<br />
Pave Setting|Pave setting, and micro pave setting, feature small gemstones that are placed very close together in tiny holes of the frame. This is a fine setting, in which all you see is the diamonds, as very little metal is visible to the eye. This setting reflects quality, elegance, and brilliance.
Prong Setting|The claw or prong setting is a popular choice for both a classic solitaire diamond ring and a diamond set eternity band, as it highlights the diamonds with the least metal showing.

Setting Style

In both your engagement ring and wedding band, choosing the right setting style can be just as important as choosing the diamond itself, as the setting plays a major role in the presentation of your diamonds and the overall style and character of your ring.

Think of the setting as a frame for your diamonds, and a representation of your individual style.

Bar Setting|A modern and beautiful setting, in which the diamond are set in the channel with supporting bars on either side of each stone. <br />
<br />
This style creates a beautiful display of uniformity in presentation. Since there is no additional metal between the stones, more light is allowed to pass through to the diamond. Bar setting is magnificent for solitatire and wedding band settings alike, creating a stunning contemporary styled setting which maximises both the stones and the light entering them.
Bezel Setting|The bezel or rub-over style is a stylish and contemporary looking setting, which both secures and protects the diamonds. The metal surrounding the stone is quite literally pushed over the edge of the stone, thereby offering maximum security to the diamond. This type of setting can be very effective for fancy shapes of diamond. The fact that the metal faithfully follows the outline helps to emphasize the diamond shape.
Flush Setting|The flush or 'rub-over' setting involves setting the diamond within the metal itself, and is a perfect compliment to the bezel or rub-over set engagement ring. <br />
