Your Guide to Women’s Wedding Band Styles

While attention seems to always be focused on the engagement ring itself, that does mean that wedding bands are not important. In fact, it is quite the opposite. A wedding band signifies your commitment of marriage to your significant other and really makes your ring setting extra special.

Here at With Clarity, you can find nice women's wedding bands for a reasonable price. Our team will walk you through all the details so that you can make the best possible purchase to ensure the wedding band is a perfect fit for your bride and her engagement ring.

Women's Wedding Bands: The Metals

One of the most important factors in searching for a wedding band is choosing the right metal for your selection - from women's yellow gold wedding bands with diamonds to sterling silver women's wedding bands, there is something for every lifestyle and taste. We currently offer plenty of options to choose from, including white gold, platinum, yellow gold, and rose gold.

White Gold

The standard for elegance and simplicity, a white gold band emits a silver tone with just a bit of a white hue. The sober coloring ages gracefully and suits women of every age, but you should know, however, that some white gold bands are better suited for certain types of wear and use than others. 24kt gold bands, for example, are some of the purest rings available but damage easily, not the ideal choice for brides with active lifestyles prone to scratches. On the other hand, an 18kt gold band is more durable, and a 14kt white gold ring will last even longer.


Platinum rings have a higher purity than other materials, giving them a naturally cooler tone but also a higher price tag.

In addition to being purer and denser, platinum bands are also more durable. When platinum is scratched, the metal is not lost as it happens with white gold or other metals. Instead, the scratches blend in what is known as a patina finish - a kind of matte look that can embellish your ring and give it a vintage look over time.

In short, platinum bands are more durable than white gold bands - a better fit for active lifestyles. The caveat is that they tend to be a bit pricer, but a wedding ring is an investment worth the price.

Yellow Gold

The yellow gold wedding bands are the quintessential and most popular wedding bands, deriving their warm look from the mixing of pure gold with silver and copper. The yellow finish is a fashionable finish that pairs well with any outfit and never goes out of style - chances are, at least one of your grandmothers got one of these rings back on her special day.

Yellow gold wedding bands are slightly less durable than those made of platinum. However, One advantage unique to choosing a honey, warm color is that it sets up an interesting contrast with the diamond or gemstone.

Rose Gold

Rose gold is a new favorite among wedding bands. The metal composition consists of pure gold combined with the copper that imbues it with reddish tones. Rose gold has the same metal percentages as the other colors, but it requires more polishing and cleaning to maintain its pinkish hues. If you want something young and vibrant, this is your pick - just expect to do a bit more maintenance than with other women's mixed metal wedding bands.

Women's Wedding Bands: The Styles

When buying a ring to pop the big question, you can choose not just the diamond and band metal but also the shape and design of the band itself.
