Characteristics of Wedding BandsA wedding band is worn on the left ring finger, believed to be connected to the heart by a vein, to indicate that its wearer is married. They are so important to marriage that an exchange of rings is actually incorporated into the wedding ceremony. Bands are typically forged from a long-lasting metal such as gold or platinum. Setting styles, metals, metal colors, and the presence of diamonds or gemstones provide endless options for customization. While traditional wedding rings are simply metal bands, the modern wedding ring is a bit more stylized with diamonds or decorative metal work.
Popular Wedding Band Collections at David Hayman JewellersNew York-based designer A. Jaffe is known for a subtly squared ring that resists twisting and wears comfortably. The Classics collection offers ladies' bands with or without pavé diamonds. Some rings feature alternating diamond shapes while others gently contour around center stones to fit flush against engagement rings. For men, the Classics line combines multiple metal tones for unique yet timeless creations. Seasons of Love updates women’s wedding bands with woven, ribbon-like diamond shanks and bubbly pavé baubles. Men may find more contemporary details among the Metropolitan collection where diamond inlays and matte finishes abound.

In addition to traditional golds and platinum, CrownRing crafts rings from durable alternative metals such as tungsten, Hi-Tech ceramic, and cobalt. The Traditional collection is home to basic polished rings for men. The Classic collection expands options with two-tone metals, unique finishes, and defining etches. The Rope and Diamond collections are considered unisex. Rope offers a cable twist along the bottom of the band or across the middle.
