Emerald Cut Wedding Bands
There’s nothing like the sparkle of a diamond wedding band to honor the love and commitment shared between two people forever. Of course, a diamond wedding band had to make our list somewhere, but the beauty of a diamond lies so much deeper than just in the stone itself. Diamonds are the world’s favorite gemstone for many reasons, a major contributor being the vast variety of shapes that the beloved gemstone can be cut into.
Of recent, the hottest diamond for wedding bands is that of the Emerald Cut. Emerald cut wedding bands and engagement rings offer a wonderfully bold alternative to the more traditional modern brilliant-cut diamonds common in many wedding bands. Often referred to as the step cut, wedding bands featuring emerald cut diamonds typically rate high in clarity, and the parallel facets make for a captivating geometric appearance.
If you’re looking to add some clean and distinct lines to your wedding band, then an emerald cut wedding band from Ken K. Thompson is a perfect choice! This Lady’s 14 karat white gold diamond band from our Classic Selection features 4 Emerald Diamonds set alternating between 5 round diamonds, for a diamond total weight of 1ctw. This emerald cut wedding band is sure to bring smiles and turn heads on your wedding day!
Opal Wedding Bands
If you haven’t considered an opal wedding band or opal gemstone engagement ring for your special day, please allow our team here at Ken K. to reintroduce you to this gorgeous gemstone’s mystical iridescent sparkle. For the untraditional bride looking for a striking style and unique look completely different than that of a diamond band, look no further than an opal wedding band. Beyond their absolutely stunning lustrous shine and natural brilliance, opals are much more budget-friendly than diamond rings.
Opals, known for being the October birthstone, are formed during long spans of dry climate after heavy rains in warmer regions of the world like Australia. Although a milky white color is the most common, opals come in a wide variety of colors and are characterized by their background tone. Of all the colors, black opals bring the most value. Do take note that even with their gorgeous play of color and magnificent iridescence, opals are one of the softest gemstones and need to be handled with care to prevent damage and chipping.
Do you see yourself wearing an opal ring to go with that gorgeous wedding dress? Stop into Ken K. Thompson and try on this stunning 14 karat opal wedding band featuring 3 ovular white-green opals surrounded by a frost of .07ctw small round diamonds.
Oval Engagement Ring and Wedding Band Sets
Another fancy diamond cut that is experiencing a big surge in popularity recently is that of the oval cut diamond. Oval engagement ring and wedding band sets that feature oval cut diamonds are all the rage, largely due in part to how the overall length of oval cut diamonds covers and flatters the wearer's finger. Unlike the much more common round diamond, oval cut diamonds do not have a standardized length-to-width proportion, allowing one to pick a shape and size oval cut diamond that best suits your style. Although oval cuts look great in nearly any setting or jewelry piece, these timeless diamonds look especially radiant with diamond pave-set bands in the fashion ring area, and in bridal jewelry, they look wonderful in oval engagement ring and wedding band sets with more of a vintage flair.
If you’re thinking that an oval engagement ring and wedding band set suits your style for your wedding day, be amazed by this 14 Karat White Gold engagement ring featuring a halo design. Couple that with a stunning white gold wedding band featuring a staggering .25 carat center oval cut diamond, accented with .25ctw round-cut diamonds along its edge. Can you say vintage elegance?!
