Choosing The Right Metal For Your Contemporary Wedding Band

A contemporary wedding band is not only a testament to the commitment you share with your partner but also a symbol of the strength of your relationship. When it comes to choosing a wedding band, there are many factors you need to consider, from the perfect diamond to the right metal. 

At Friendly Diamonds, you have the option of choosing between yellow gold, rose gold, and white gold in either 14kt or 18kt. You can also go for platinum metal for your wedding band. Read on to determine which metal you should choose for your wedding band.

14kt Vs. 18kt

Gold is one of the most loved and adored metals available in the world today. Pure gold in its rich glory is a sight to behold and we know that you’ve also wondered at some point in your life why 24kt pure gold cannot be used while making jewelry.

This is because 24kt gold in its pure form is very soft and can get easily scratched. Jewelry made from 14kt and 18kt gold is far more durable and affordable. Go for 14kt gold when you’re looking for a more durable metal band and 18kt gold when you don’t want any compromise with the shine of your contemporary wedding band.

Yellow Gold Metal Band

Yellow gold is one of the most popular metals used for contemporary wedding bands. The shine it exudes is unlike any other metal. Yellow gold is not only enticing in its luster, but its also a great investment. You can buy a wedding band in either 14kt or 18kt yellow gold for a glow that symbolizes your love for your partner.  Our stunning 14kt Yellow Gold Blakely anniversary band will be a testament to your enduring love.

White Gold Metal Band

White gold is an alloy of gold with other precious metals that gives it the pristine white shine it is famously known for. Reportedly, when platinum had to be stopped being made into jewelry owing to its rarity and need in the war, white gold metal was created as its replacement. It is certainly a more affordable option than platinum.

Some amount of metal other than gold must be added to it so that its colour can be changed from yellow to white.  If you’re looking for a wedding band that shines silvery white, but is actually gold, go for our white gold Luisa two stone Toi et Moi ring. Along with being a two stone ring that doubles the shine with two diamonds, this ring is also a symbol of the purity of your love.

Rose Gold Metal Band

Rose gold is also a popular choice when it comes to metal bands for a contemporary wedding band. Copper is the metal that is added to gold in order to make rose gold. It is also one of the reasons why rose gold is considered so durable and affordable along with having the romantic hue of pink attached to it.
