Here are some popular diamond shapes to consider:
You’ll find plenty of anniversary band options. Today the three-stone and five-stone anniversary bands continue to be popular. It’s said that the three-stones represent the past, present, and future. You can also look at how the diamonds are set. Some have prongs while others have channel set diamond bands.
Anniversary bands come in different metals, so you’ll need to consider metal preferences as you browse for rings. The metal impacts the overall ring appearance and can affect the price.
Before we dive into the different types of metals, it’s important to note that gold’s karatage refers to the percentage of pure gold in the alloy: 18k gold contains 75% gold and 14k gold contains 58.3% gold. Jewelry often is 14k gold because the higher percentage of included alloyed metals provides more durability and resistance to wear and tear.
Metal choice can affect the overall look: Talk about how the metal you choose affects the overall visual appeal of the anniversary band. Additionally, it can affect the price too. Choose something that matches her engagement ringa set for the best cohesion.
You have plenty of available options, but here are some helpful hints as you shop for anniversary bands.
If you receive an anniversary band, you can wear your wedding ring, then an engagement ring followed by the anniversary band. You can also choose to wear the anniversary band in place of the engagement ring and wedding band or have it made to fit your right hand ring finger.
Your stack depends on your current wedding set and your personal preferences. If you plan to add more anniversary bands over time, some choose to wear them above the engagement ring. Some choose to wear one above and one below the wedding band.
Metal choices depend on personal preferences and the metal sensitivity of who will be wearing the ring. White and yellow gold are popular metals for anniversary bands, but you can find rings in other metals, such as platinum if you want a hypoallergenic option.
There aren’t specific anniversaires in which an anniversary band is expected. Some couples choose to commemorate a milestone anniversary with a special band, such as 10, 15, 20, 25, while others give an anniversary band when it’s unexpected.
