A plain wedding band is definitely not ‘plain looking’ although it is unadorned, elegant, and simple. Plain never means ordinary but does stand for a wedding band of elegant simplicity and this type of ring definitely says ‘classic’. Made from gold, white gold, platinum or other metals the plain wedding band has a natural beauty and glory all its own. Some people may think that a plain wedding band without any design elements such as central cables or edge stripes would look lackluster but nothing could be more incorrect. On a simple or plain wedding band, there are no distractions to take away from the material and finely crafted workmanship. Whether made of traditional yellow gold or white gold, plain wedding bands are stylish rings designed by some of the finest artisans. Unlike years ago when plain wedding bands were traditionally very heavy and wide, band widths today are often 2 mm to 4 mm wide so have a beautiful richness in a narrower form.
You can choose to have a plain outer band on your wedding ring but that does not mean you have to leave the inside plain, without any engraving. Have a personal message engraved inside the wedding bands such as the wearer's name, date of marriage or special saying. The unadorned, bold look of a plain band represents purity and the special union, profound love and admiration between two people. The sheer beauty and sheen of this beautiful plain wedding band is a powerful symbol. Precious gemstones, scrolls and other ornamentation found in many wedding bands are lovely but many people prefer a plain wedding band that carries its own weight because of its elegant, beautiful simplicity.
A plain platinum wedding band does not need any type of adornment, as it is sensational in appearance. Platinum maintains its symmetry, holds its shape, is very strong and resists nicks and scratches. Platinum rings are ninety to ninety-five percent pure metal so have exceptional luster and are brighter with more substance that other precious metals such as gold and silver. An ordinary wedding ring made from platinum requires nothing but itself, because the ring is an elegant, stylish, lovely work of art that anyone, male or female, could wear with pride.
A yellow gold, plain wedding band is still the most popular choice of women and men everywhere because nothing can take its place. There is 24 c gold but it is prone to bending and twisting out of shape. Most people choose 14 c or 18 c, as it is harder, with 18 c being the most popular. There are several choices in color, such as yellow gold, white gold and rose gold so you should pick a color for your wedding band that suits your complexion, personality, or just because you love the looks. Be sure to look at comfort fit plain wedding bands, so your ring not only looks spectacular but also feels wonderful on your finger. Any wedding bands, including plain wedding bands, symbolize long lasting love and commitment so be sure to select yours after much deliberation.
