How to Pick Out the Perfect Wedding Band

Picking out wedding bands is often one of the last big to-do’s before saying, “I do.” Your engagement ring says 
yes to getting engaged, but your wedding bands say yes to forever.

Your wedding band is the perfect opportunity to enhance your engagement ring and really showcase your personal style. Women’s wedding band options are more unique than ever. Gone are the days where the only options are the classic thin, matching band. Today’s brides can express their style with gemstones, shapes, metals, and even multiple bands!

Plateau Jewelers is proud to offer Sammamish-area couples the best in men’s and women’s wedding bands. If you are shopping for women’s wedding bands, here are a few things to consider to make the process seamless and enjoyable even before you visit our showroom.

How to Pick Out the Perfect Wedding Band

Explore different styles.

Do you like the matching look or are you into something that stands on its own apart from your engagement ring? Contrasting engagement rings and wedding bands are on trend and create a look that’s all your own. If you love rose or yellow gold but have a white gold engagement ring, you might appreciate the mixed metal look with your wedding band.

Daydream in color.

We love the sparkle of white diamonds, but color is always invited to the party! Your wedding band can express your personal style or other things that are important to you like the birthstone of your partner or the month you will say “I do.” The most commonly chosen colored stones in a wedding band are ruby, emerald and sapphire.

Consider lifestyle.

If you are active or like to travel with minimal jewelry, you might like the option of wearing just your wedding band and leaving the engagement ring in the jewelry box. Consider a style that stands on its own so you have options that fit your lifestyle.

Think about multiples.

The only thing better than one stunning wedding band is two! When creating a look that complements your engagement ring, two (or more!) bands might be perfect for you. Try on a pair matching bands stacked on either side of your engagement ring and see what you think!

Go custom. 

At Plateau Jewelers, creating custom masterpieces is our specialty. If you can’t find exactly what you are looking for, we’d love to talk about creating a custom design wedding band to match your exact desires for you. Learn more here.
