Choosing such a personal item like a wedding ring is going to take some time and looking around. One of the biggest mistakes you can make is thinking this will be a simple task. Even if you just want a simple band, there are a lot of decisions to make: Curved or flat? Polished or matte? Narrow or wide? The list is long.
Traditionally kosher Jewish wedding bands are plain and without stones set into them. This came from a tradition where the bride should be able to easily find out its value and was needed because its worth, not the actual ring, that mattered. Nowadays, this is much more relaxed among modern Jewish couples, although most brides and grooms opt for plain rings anyway. According to Jewish tradition, it is not necessary for the bride to give the groom a ring, but most husbands and wives both choose to wear rings for equality.
Here are a few features to consider when choosing your wedding rings:
Textured Wedding Rings
Women’s and men’s wedding rings come in loads of different textures. This is a great way to add some detail to the ring while still meeting kosher requirements. There are many textures available and it is easy to choose matching rings for bride and groom. A texture is not a design, but rather a finish or combination of finishes.
Patterned Wedding Rings
These wedding rings have a pattern engraved in them. They have limitless possibilities of what can be engraved or embossed. A popular choice for wedding bands is “Ani L’dodi” rings. This is taken from Song of Solomon and means “I am my Beloved’s.” Other patterns can include floral designs, geometric shapes, and just about anything you can think of.
Two Toned Wedding Rings
This is one of the latest trends, especially for men. Multiple tones of gold are used to give added dimension and interest. These rings are especially beautiful and they have that element of uniqueness. The various colors can be intricately incorporated with designs or simply just bands of color. Two toned rings present an opportunity for you to explore the artistic and creative side of jewelry.
