1) Classic 

For those who appreciate timeless elegance, classic wedding bands are the epitome of sophistication. Made with precision and a touch of tradition, these rings showcase a simple, unadorned design that effortlessly stands the test of time. If your style is all about clean lines and you appreciate the beauty of a simple, well-made piece of jewelry, then a classic wedding band might be for you.

2) Vintage

Vintage-inspired wedding bands will take you back in time, inspired by the romantic aesthetics of bygone eras. Intricate detailing and ornate designs characterize these rings, capturing the charm of vintage craftsmanship. Some examples of vintage elements include intricate filigree, delicate engraving, or subtle details that add up to a truly unique piece.

3) Nature-Inspired

Outdoor lovers are understandably drawn to wedding bands inspired by nature's beauty. These bands feature earthy, organic designs like leaf or floral accents, or unique shapes that mimic a natural element. If your style is understated and unique, with a touch of whimsy, you may be inclined towards a ring that reflects your connection to the natural world.

4) Pavé

Characterized by some extra sparkle, pavé wedding bands are adorned with small, closely set diamonds, creating a brilliant and eye-catching surface. These bands add a touch of glamor to your symbol of love without overwhelming the design. Pavé bands are also great for people who may sometimes want to wear their wedding band alone without sacrificing style.

5) Colorful

Break away from tradition with a colorful wedding band, offering a vibrant twist on classic metal tones and white stones. Colorful wedding bands can either spice up with a more classic engagement ring or be paired with an equally unconventional engagement ring. Either way, colorful wedding bands are not to be ruled out.

6) Modern 

Bold, geometric shapes and unexpected textures characterize modern wedding bands. These rings might feature a unique metal finish, like matte or brushed metal, or have an unexpected shape or texture that gives a contemporary edge. If you prefer a band with a minimalistic design, but with a twist that sets it apart from traditional wedding bands, then a modern band might be your style.

7) Contour

Contour bands are curved or angled to follow the silhouette of a solitaire or multi-stone ring, allowing multiple rings to stack closely together. These are the perfect companion to a low-set engagement ring. You may even choose to have more open space between the rings, adding another dimension to your stack.


At W.R. Metalarts, we believe that your wedding band should reflect your individuality and the unique bond you share with your partner(s). Each piece reflects a unique set of tastes and preferences, with endless possibilities for custom tweaks and designs. Whatever your style, we're here to help you find the perfect symbol of your love that will last a lifetime.
