Dating back to ancient Egypt, the tradition of wearing a wedding band has endured for centuries! It was believed that the left ring finger housed a vein that led directly to the heart, known as “Vena Amoris” or the “Vein of Love”, and the ring symbolizes a never-ending love between the couple. Relics dating back 6,000 years show evidence that these bridal rings were made of braided hemp or reeds. Oh, how times have changed!
Nowadays, the options are almost endless when it comes to wedding rings for women. While you can probably still find a braided hemp wedding ring somewhere in the far reaches of the Internet, many modern women would prefer a wedding ring that turns heads and lets their love sparkle! I know I would!
Scroll down to see 5 of my favorite rings for women, offered at The Bradford Exchange, that are sure to steal the spotlight and, if you see something that catches your eye, please share this post!
Showcasing a row of open hearts along the band and sparkling with over 1-3/4 carats of glittering white topaz, this fine jewelry design packs a punch without breaking the bank. Internationally-renowned designer and artist Alfred Durante designed this piece and I love how he incorporated romantic touches from every angle, right down to the engraved names on the inside of the band!
I love the song, I love the design! This bridal ring set draws inspiration from the infinity symbol, featuring a raised entwining design on both bands plated in 18K gold. Over 4 carats of our exclusive Diamonesk® simulated diamonds sparkle from these rings, making it a true statement piece when worn separately or together. These stones possess a cut, color and clarity that rival the brilliance and fire of the finest diamonds, at a fraction of the cost, so you don’t have to sacrifice style to save big!
Isn’t this stunning? Handcrafted of solid sterling silver, this magnificent ring boasts 3 carats of Diamonesk® simulated diamonds and you can add a personal engraving of your names, a date or a special message on the inside of the band for added romance. Plus, you can even create a custom sentiment card for the perfect finishing touch!
I’ve never seen a ring design like this before! The two-heart centerpiece opens on a hinge to reveal your two engraved names, creating a one-of-a-kind statement of your devotion. Over 70 genuine white topaz grace this distinctive design and the sculpted heart gallery work really adds an interesting touch. And, isn’t the engraved sentiment on the inside of the band sweet?
