While an engagement ring is a conversation starter, a wedding band is the lifelong partner. So, it should be something you love and want to wear forever. Bespoke wedding bands in Birmingham are a great option if you’re looking for something as unique as your personality and love. Here are some tips to inspire you.
Finding a Complimentary Design
Although it’s not necessary to wear matching wedding bands, the couple can definitely shop together for more harmonious results. A couple of weekends exploring jewellery shops in Birmingham’s famous Jewellery Quarter is a great idea to draw inspiration and find cost-effective solutions. Think about whether you want the bespoke wedding band to be in the same style as the engagement ring – it doesn’t have to be.
A Blank Canvas for Creativity
Bespoke wedding bands in Birmingham have a blank canvas, so you can select any design ranging from a simple gold band to a statement piece or even a vintage design. Go with images of what you have in mind so that the jewellery store’s design team will have a starting point from which to build a design. Set aside a budget – around 3-5% of your wedding budget – so that you have a high quality solution that will last a lifetime.
Look Beyond Traditional Yellow Gold
While yellow gold is the traditional choice for wedding bands, you have many other options such as rose gold, white gold, platinum and palladium when you go bespoke. All of them have pros and cons such as hypoallergenic features, affordability, colour and easy care. While it’s normal for brides to select the same metal as their engagement ring for their wedding band, keep in mind factors such as lifestyle to make a sound choice. For example, platinum is an extremely durable material and a great choice for people with active lifestyles.
Consider Diamond Set Wedding Bands
Bespoke wedding bands in Birmingham can be plain or set with diamonds. If you like the idea of diamonds your wedding band, you have many style options such as shared prong and channel set. An anniversary band is a great inspiration for wedding bands and has practical uses too – it can be worn every day instead of an engagement ring by women who love their diamonds.
