Silver wedding bands are now one of the best jewelry for couples getting ready to get married. Not everyone chooses gold items, considering it a classic and banal option. Silver is a more budget-friendly option compared to gold, but it certainly has its own special beauty and tenderness.
Silver wedding rings — a look from the past and present
If we recall the history and traditions, it would be useful to say that in Rus’, the newlyweds exchanged rings during the wedding: a man was supposed to be gold, and a woman was supposed to be silver. It was believed that a woman’s silver wedding ring is a symbol of the moon, which is able to reflect sunlight.
Today, the choice of this noble metal is determined more by personal preferences than by tradition. By purchasing paired silver wedding rings, the bride and groom may even be repelled by character traits. Someone prefers thin models with slightly noticeable weaving, while someone, on the contrary, chooses massive, wide options with patterns.
Paired silver wedding rings do not have to be the same for future spouses. Girls most often choose complex weaving patterns, with inserts and stones, while men prefer smooth, concise options.
Options for combinations of silver wedding rings
In general, there can be a lot of options for “playing” with silver, its combinations and combinations:
- A kind of alternative, in essence, are wedding rings made of silver with gilding, which outwardly practically do not differ from gold items, but are much cheaper. It is believed that such a coating makes the jewelry more durable, and also protects it from premature darkening. Gold-plated silver wedding rings today exist in various designs, including thin and wide models, with stones, inserts and completely smooth — so the choice is very large.
- Silver and gold wedding rings are a combination of two contrasts: cold and warm. Particularly interesting are the variants of products with the imposition of two metals, which creates the appearance of a combination of seemingly white and yellow gold, and not silver.
- Engraved silver wedding rings are most often chosen by original natures. At the same time, you can buy a fairly wide product at a reasonable price and pay for engraving — an inscription invented by lovers. Thus, the ring, although it will not turn out to be cheap in the end, since the process of applying letters and symbols to silver plating is expensive, will be unique, unique and inimitable.
- Silver engagement rings with diamonds are an expensive and luxurious option. It is believed that the more spectacular the ring, the brighter the family life will be. At the same time, it is not necessary to choose products with a large number of large diamonds. On the contrary, let it be better elegant and neat, with one, two, or a scattering of small pebbles.
