Classic gold and diamonds for trendy designs


Gone are the days when the traditional and simple wedding bands were popular and almost every couple settled for them to compete their nuptials. The new wedding ring trends for the year ahead seem to favour bigger and trendier designs with a creative integration of gold and diamonds. The simple wedding band is now replaced by fancier wedding ring cuts and if this year is anything to go by, more brides are opting for adding a personal touch in the design of their rings.

Every bride wants to stand out and be unique and most are now making this statement with their wedding bands, the “gold and diamonds” in addition to the wedding dress of course. Ready-made and readily available rings may unfortunately mean several other brides elsewhere will have the same wedding ring. Extreme attempts at being different and unique have become the latest “craze” and it is quite telling on what will be popular in the year ahead.

One of the current trends with wedding bands is designing one’s wedding ring from scratch, and many are enjoying the freedom of custom made rings. This may be driven by the desire to create a unique masterpiece using a creative ‘blend’ of gold and diamonds, or simply because the choices presented in catalogues for some or other reason are not appealing. Perusing resources such as online catalogues and consulting with jewellers in-store are still extremely advantageous as individuals can gain excellent ideas for the design concept.

Many people think twice about having their wedding rings especially designed for them from scratch – and yes at first sight the thought of combining gold and diamonds to create an original piece sounds daunting. This is often a misconception as all one has to do is select a diamond shape and ring design from a list of design alternatives – unless of-course you already have an image in mind and are capable of explaining it to your jeweller. Diamond Source offers an online resource that allows you to easily create a ring based on your preferences.
