Most often, the engagement ring is the star of the show, but wedding bands can also be attention grabbing at the same time! Wedding bands can be beautiful and brilliant in their own way, while still accompanying your sparkling engagement ring. Opt for wedding bands that have the same overall aesthetic as the engagement ring, that are equally as stunning.
Brides may be hesitant to mix metals and shapes at first, but when done right, these unconventional pairings can prove to be classic and beautiful! This is a great option for brides who can’t seem to decide if they want platinum, white or rose gold…so, why choose? Mixing metals is the perfect route for the modern and chic bride. Additionally, having different shapes on the band and ring can create beautiful contrasts. For indecisive brides, having multiple shapes on their fingers can create excitement and a sense of newness every time they look down at their hand.
Not only is it completely acceptable (and trendy) to mix metals and shapes, but it’s also a beautiful statement to pair delicate engagement rings with bold wedding bands. This stunning duo complements one another, without being too overpowering. The two contrasting aesthetics create a gorgeous overall design that is sure to grab everyone’s attention. Differing widths can make for a unique, sophisticated look that won’t go out of style. Mixing dainty styles with bold bands make for a truly stunning comparison. No matter what brides decide, it’s important to keep in mind that the wedding band should reflect their personality and style.
Selecting a wedding band is a lost art for many, but with some tips and inspiration, couples can be confident in their decisions!

With engagement season officially in full swing and a new year ahead, jewelers are releasing an array of beautiful engagement rings that are sure to be on every bride-to-be’s wish list. In 2021, Robbins Brothers, the engagement ring experts, predict that unexpected halos, lab-grown diamonds, not-so-subtle stacking and more, will be popular for future newlyweds. Read on to discover what everyone will be hinting at for engagement rings in 2021.
Lab-grown diamonds are essentially identical to mined diamonds. They are eco-friendly and give you more bang (or sparkle) for your buck. Lab-grown diamonds have become a rising trend because it is more accessible to everyone, meaning a bigger diamond for a better price. Expect mined diamonds to see some friendly competition this year!
The classic round diamond will never go out of style, but in 2021 unique shapes will get some more of the limelight. Anticipate that pear, oval, princess, and other distinctive shapes will make a name for themselves during this engagement season. Fancy-cuts are the perfect way to make future brides feel equally glamorous as elegant.
Although there will be plenty of glamorous and bold diamonds this season, unexpected halos will also be among the top picks. Halos have been an ongoing trend, however, expect to see updated halos such as graduated halos, fancy-shaped halos and hidden halos. For brides who enjoy a little extra timeless sparkle, halos are right up their alley.
Brides can make a statement this year without saying a single word. Let big, brilliant diamond ring bands do all the talking instead. Thick, wide ring bands are going to steal the show during the coming months.
This upcoming year, more is always a good idea. Layering multiple rings, bracelets and pendants to create a unique stack of jewels is what bold brides will be after. Stacks allow the bride to customize and change her look whenever she wants to. The best part? Layering is not exclusive to one kind of style. Brides can step into their creative side during 2021 to mix and match classic white gold and romantic rose golds to design exactly what they want.
