Choose Metal Quality and Color

Gold and platinum offer a variety of qualities and colors, each with their own characteristics. Explore the subtle differences between the precious metal qualities and colors used in ever&ever® wedding bands in our Precious Metals Guide.

At the end of the day, it all comes down to your personal preference and style. Perhaps you like the sleek style and durability of platinum or maybe you enjoy the classic appeal and color of yellow gold. Another consideration would be whether or not you plan to match your band with an engagement ring or your partner’s wedding band.

No matter which precious metal you choose for your wedding band, just know that there are styles and designs that will make it shine.

Metal Wedding Bands: A Timeless Classic

A metal wedding band is a classic tradition that often comes to mind when thinking about wedding rings.

Width, Fit, and Weight

A wedding band’s width and fit determine how the ring feels on your finger. Width on ever&ever® classic metal wedding band range from 1 to 12 millimeters. Fit is determined by the inside surface of the band that rests on the finger. The standard fit is a flat interior surface, regardless of the exterior design details. The comfort fit is a domed, or curved, interior surface that allows for easier movement over the knuckle. Weight refers to the thickness of the band. Choose between light, standard, and heavy.

Designs & Details

Designs and details are specific to the exterior of the wedding band. The ring’s profile — or external shape — can come in a variety of options, such as half-round, flat, knife, square, and more. You can then add edge details, such as milgrain, bead, and rope, to make the design even more personalized.

Finishes & Engravings

The final touch to any ring is a special finish and engraving. Special finishes are textures that can be added to the exterior of metal wedding bands, such as a hammered or satin finish. Finally, make the ring uniquely yours with an engraving on the interior or exterior of the band. Engrave a name, date, or meaningful phrase to serve as an eternal reminder of the love of your life.

Diamond Wedding Bands: Style Made Modern

Like the diamonds that accent them, diamond wedding bands are a stunning and enduring symbol of commitment. Whether paired with an engagement ring or worn alone, a diamond wedding band should reflect the style and uniqueness of the one who wears it. With multiple styles to choose from and a variety of ways to customize, let’s dive into how you can personalize your own diamond wedding band.

Diamond Wedding Bands

Eternity or Anniversary

There are two styles of diamond wedding bands that ever&ever® offers: eternity and anniversary. Each style refers to the placement of accent diamonds on the band. Eternity bands feature diamonds around the entirety of the band, while anniversary bands only feature diamonds partially around the band.

Stone Shape & Size

One of the best parts about ever&ever® rings is that you get to choose the stone shape and size of your favorite design. Choose from a selection of shapes ranging from round to fancy shapes and a variety of carat total weights. Learn more about diamond stone shapes in our Diamonds Guide.

Natural vs. Lab-Grown

Lastly, when looking at the diamonds you want in your wedding band, you have options between natural or lab-grown diamonds. Natural and lab-grown diamonds are optically, chemically, and physically identical to each other. The only differences are origin and price point.
