WHAT ARE ANNIVERSARY BANDS?
Anniversary bands are one of today’s most exciting innovations in bridal jewelry. For generations, brides have largely worn an engagement ring and a wedding band. Whether they wear one, the other, or both, the bridal stack has remained constant for centuries. Anniversary bands build onto the bridal stack. For milestone anniversaries – like the first, tenth, or twentieth – a new wedding band can be given. By wearing this band alongside the other rings, the wearer illustrates how love and marriage grow over time. Any wedding band can be an anniversary band, but some fill the role better than others.
ANNIVERSARY BANDS AND WEDDING BANDS: WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?
When picking an anniversary band, you’ll be thinking about things differently. Instead of thinking about how a ring looks by itself, you should be considering how it looks with others. A regal ruby ring might have that spectacular thrill, but it may be too stark a contrast to your wedding band’s emeralds. Instead, a slender and minimalist ring will better bring the eye’s attention to an already glamorous stack while adding extra sparkle and visual interest. Floral details, contemporary settings, and bold gemstones are exceptional ways to enliven a bridal stack. Make note of your stack’s aesthetic balance and carefully consider how to spruce it up with an anniversary band.
POPULAR ANNIVERSARY BAND DESIGNERS
When it comes to shopping, anniversary and wedding bands are found in the same spot. Hearts On Fire is renowned for its distinctively brilliant diamonds, crafted with the brand’s signature proprietary cut. Bright and radiant, they’re best paired with understated pieces. Tacori is a California-based brand with a focus on exquisite metalwork. Their bands have beautifully ornate patterns, with some more sleek pieces available. Veraggio is an excellent brand for those who want to add a feminine touch to their stack, as this Italian brand works wonders with rose gold and architecture-like metalwork.
