Jewelry Bands – Custom Design makes it possible for any type of band creation.

Jewelry Bands – Custom Design makes it possible for any type of band creation.

Are you looking for different kinds of ring styles or band styles that can be completely unique to you or traditional ring bands? The overall choice is completely personal and up to you, but you should know all of the different kinds of band styles so you can bring your style to perfection.

One type of band has one diamond set into it and is a plain, traditionally mounted band. This would usually be a traditional engagement ring, which is then able to be personalized with different kinds of bands, ring guards, or wraps. Wedding and anniversary bands are the main rings that utilize this type of band and setting. Gypsy settings are bands that have a single extending piece of metal that gets thicker at the very top, you may have seen it before in men’s jewelry. The band is shaped like a dome, has the stone inserted into the middle of it, and doesn’t have any prongs sticking out, making the surface look and feel completely smooth and clean.

With a custom designed ring, you can have just about any band design or stackable ring design. Even rings that intertwine. Bands can be textured and multi-layered with different types of gold and jewels. No matter what type of band design you’ve seen Moses Jewelers can both duplicate and create unique band designs and best of all you’ll see the entire ring before it’s manufactured with computer-aided design.

There are beautiful wedding band options worth considering. Custom wedding bands can be created in an infinite combination of metals, stones, and shapes. You can go with a simple smooth design for your wedding band set or go into a set that has a version for the bride and another for the groom with elements that tie the two bands together as a set.

The question about whether or not to match bands and rings is no longer an anomaly. It’s tradition, but it’s fallen over the last few years to a lower percentage for quite a number of reasons, including preferences for stronger metals or a person’s unique and personalized styles. It’s not necessary anymore to have an exactly matching set. You do not need to have a high amount of design sense to accomplish this because a jewelry designer can walk you through the creation process from idea to final design. A competent designer can create a semi-matching set that are born out of the same concept.

Plain bands may not be your style, and there’s other options if it isn’t. Wedding bands can come set with stones and gems, with the most popular of these being diamonds. Choosing to go with stones makes the choice purely about your tastes in jewelry. White diamonds are the most common choice, but you can also choose colored diamonds or gems that contrast with each other. Textures, setting of the stones, if applicable, and edging can all be manipulated to complement but not copy each ring in the wedding band set. A modern and hugely popular design concept are to combine two colors of gold in the band design.

One of the greatest advances in wedding band set design has come with the addition of technology into the fray. A computer-aided design allows you to see each ring of the set before casting and gem placement. This service is available at Moses Jewelers. Our designers can create the perfect wedding band set of your dreams, where both bride and groom can receive a ring that complements yet at the same time personalizes the wedding band. A custom wedding band set is at your fingertips and can be fit into practically any budget.
