What Is a Wedding Band?

A wedding band is a classic symbol of matrimony, a visual representation of that lifelong commitment between a loving couple. Typically, a wedding band is a circlet of precious metal, often simpler than a wedding ring that may have more elaborate embellishments and multiple diamonds or intricate details, though wedding bands can still have some added sparkle. For most couples, the terms wedding ring and wedding band are used interchangeably.

It can also be important to understand what a wedding band is not. Guards, wraps, and enhancers are all lovely wedding ring styles, but look noticeably incomplete or unbalanced if worn without the associated engagement ring. These styles are not typically considered wedding bands, but can be stunning as bridal or wedding sets. The key element is that a wedding band can easily be worn separately, without being paired with an engagement ring, though the two can be worn together if desired.


Types of Wedding Bands for Women

There are many lovely designs of wedding bands for women. When compared to men’s rings, they are usually thinner and more delicate as befits smaller hands and narrower fingers and so the ring will not be overwhelming if worn together with an engagement ring. The type of designs, however, are nearly endless.

Wedding bands for women may be plain or only lightly detailed with scalloped or beaded edges, or may be much more elaborate with filigree, pave stones, or engravings. Antique wedding bands offer rich history and symbolism, while vintage wedding rings have nostalgic time- honored looks. Eternity rings and stacking bands are other popular options. Ultimately, any type of wedding band can be a woman’s most symbolic ring, so long as it suits her style.
