10 Beautiful Ways to Customise Your Wedding Bands
You’ll be wearing them every day of the rest of your life, so why not design your very own wedding bands to perfectly capture you?
Your wedding bands will be one of the most important purchases you make together as a couple. Signifying your love and commitment, your rings are the one piece of jewellery that you will both wear every day. While you can certainly select a beautiful pair of rings off the shelf, designing your own wedding bands can be a very meaningful and fun experience to share.
Your wedding rings can perfectly represent you and your unique story with personalisation and customisation. From selecting the cut of your diamonds or gemstones, to designing a setting, to choosing an unconventional metal for your rings, the possibilities are endless when it comes to designing your own bespoke wedding bands.
Helmed by founder Amanda Koo, a GIA-certified gemologist, eClarity Diamonds is an award-winning jeweller that specialises in the celebration of love through jewellery. The creative jewellers at eClarity have years of experience in customising engagement rings and wedding bands, and can bring your dream rings to life. After getting to know your personalities, story, and budget, an eClarity consultant can help you design a pair of wedding rings that capture you, crafted to wear and last for a lifetime.
Gather inspiration for your one-of-a-kind rings and bring visual cues to show your consultant exactly what you like about the band of one ring, or the setting of another ring. With over 500 styles of wedding bands in their gallery, eClarity is also a great place to try on styles before you finalise your unique design. For more inspiration, here are ten ways you can customise your wedding bands.
1. Kissing Wedding Bands
Kissing wedding bands represent intimacy. The pair of rings are carefully crafted to create a connection either structurally or magnetically. When placed against each other, the rings interlock in a “kiss” that represents your bond with each other.
2. Diamond Edges
Instead of wedding rings set with diamonds on the outside of the band, encrusting the edges of your bands can give your customised wedding bands a unique, understated sparkle. Thicker bands are crafted and diamonds line one-half of their edges to catch the light at only certain angles. To inject even more personality, the bands can be customised in different coloured gold.
3. Double Happiness
These double happiness wedding bands signify the joy that a couple has found in each other. When placed side by side, the rings match up to form the Chinese character for “shuang xi”, double happiness.
4. Woven Wedding Bands
Symbolise your lives being woven together to form a strong cord with braided or woven wedding bands. These customised wedding bands can be finished in different techniques to complete your bespoke design.
