15 Platinum Wedding Band Styles You’ve Never Seen Before
Now that you’ve found your perfect platinum engagement ring, there’s no time like the present to complete the pairing! “Wait a second,” you wonder, “just how unique can wedding band styles get?” Allow us to introduce 15 examples that will have you thinking platinum not only is a symbol of quality and endurance, but it really is the best kind of magic.
With matching engagement and wedding sets being so prevalent, it’s sometimes all too easy to forget that you will actually be the proud owner of two rings! Let your platinum wedding band be a statement all on its own and go for a bold love token like Ricardo Basta’s 8-band ring—encrusted with over 250 sparkling diamonds—to be worn as a splendid marital stack or to adorn that special finger on your other hand.
Courtesy of VERMA, this mixed-cut diamond and platinum ring dates to the 1940s and is just what you needed for a truly versatile wedding suite: imagine your engagement halo nestling on top… or placing some juicy sapphire eternity bands on either side to celebrate milestone anniversaries.
By itself, Cathy Waterman’s Moon and Stars platinum ring epitomizes delicacy and romance. While the garland silhouette could perhaps be a tender reminder of your wedding day’s festivities, it also serves as an excellent keeper band (worn with the curve side down creates an excellent engagement ring cradle that can accommodate a variety of stone shapes).
Hand-engraving and an amazing patina is evident in this wide platinum band from Doyle and Doyle. Dogwood was a popular medium in the Victorian era to express sentiments of affection, strength, resilience, purity, and beauty… we think those illustrious qualities sure sound familiar!
Entirely handmade by McCaul, either of these platinum bands could make a sublime and decidedly modern partner to your engagement ring. If the choice were ours, we’d run away with both bands for innovative stacking options from now until forever.
Also by McCaul, the Double Petal would be the most cherished of platinum wedding rings (with your solitaire cozying up right in the center) especially if you chose your and your honey’s birthstones.
We haven’t forgotten about the gentlemen! Bert Levi Family Jewelers has come to the contemporary forefront with platinum steeped in artistry and purpose: “I chose square, princess cut diamonds because they work best for the strong angle in the band. I chose three because there are three critical aspects of marriage that ought to be front of mind. Trust, empowerment, and affection. A successful marriage is one in which the partners trust each other implicitly, empower each other to achieve their dreams, and never hold back when it comes to being affectionate and loving. I put all of that symbolism on a band of platinum. Platinum by itself describes the incredible rarity of true love. This precious metal is so rare every bit of it ever mined and smelted would barely fill a studio apartment! Apart from the rarity, platinum also symbolizes some of the ideal qualities in a husband. Strength. Endurance. Determination. Dedication. This wedding band, therefore, encompasses the strength, endurance, determination, and dedication to embrace your rare and beautiful love through trust, empowerment, and affection. If this symbolism appeals to you, this might be your wedding band!”
Now this is an interesting stroke of Erie Basin genius! Platinum is an active design participant with its striking knife-edge, and the natural light yellow-green—yes, yellow-green!—marquise diamond is set as if it is emerging from beneath. The whole effect is altogether magnetic! Wear it alone, with your engagement ring, piled with family heirlooms… did we mention that platinum’s lasting appeal can also be very liberating?
Here is another platinum wedding band that plays well with others; as Karen Karch suggests, orient the Belgian Tiara in any direction you please. It’s as if the ring is encouraging you to have fun and enjoy every minute of life with the one who makes your heart sing!
Move over, fingerprints: thanks to Precious Lace Jewelry, you can have your voice immortalized in platinum! Only you and your partner will know what is said, which adds layers of sentiment and intimacy unmatched by traditional engravings.
Drawing on nature for inspiration, Doron Merav brings metal to life by sculpting a sprig of leaves and setting a dewdrop of a diamond. Though the band may be thin, platinum is incredibly strong and durable; an excellent heirloom to be worn continuously for centuries. If you prefer something with more presence…
…consider the Parched Earth wedding band: a cobblestone-like pattern with a brushed/matte effect, providing an outstanding contrast to the icy glimmer of a dozen round diamonds. Let the brilliants take center stage or simply rotate the ring to display the divine texture of platinum—a hallmark of great construction is the remarkably undefined ability to suit every situation (or outfit, or mood). Go on then, #beplatinum!
A platinum signet as a wedding band? Yes, yes, and yes! One of the oldest ring forms ever conceived, a signet traditionally has a flat top where an insignia, initials, or heraldry may be engraved either on hardstone or directly onto metal. As Emmet Smith, director of Rebus Signet Rings describes, “Signet rings bearing family crests or symbols are fascinating, not only for their aesthetic appeal but also for the great amount of information they contain. …Although they occur in many cultures, they are united in that they are all works of art in miniature, exquisite in form, transformed from the ordinary into the extraordinary with a life and meaning of its own. And in time, [the signet ring] will acquire its own personality. It will become a talisman—unique and treasured [for generations].”
If you have loads of sweet nothings to say to your everything, Marla Aaron has engineered plenty of precious platinum room for you. She’s even included a locking mechanism and a generous sprinkling of diamonds!
As a wedding band, Trumpet & Horn’s Winthrop ring has undeniable Deco-esque impact. As part of a wedding stack (read: coupled with even more gemstones)? Do excuse us while we type a whole row of starry-eyed emojis! What a harmony of nature, craft, metal, and a glorious kind of chutzpah.
