The Intricacies of Gold Wedding Bands

I don’t know whether you have noticed it or not but a measured aesthetic approach reveals that a classic gold wedding band has many intricacies in it. To begin with, their ‘classic’ status itself can cause disbelief among many people. Take color for example. The so-called ‘yellow gold’ is competing with more contemporary variants like rose gold or white gold. If rose gold gains its popularity for its pleasant reddish or pinkish hue, people who choose white gold mainly do so because it lets them taste platinum bands without investing in a real one. Another obvious reason why ‘yellow gold’ doesn’t seem too rational a choice is because pure gold which supposedly goes into making these bands don’t offer the kind of longevity that is synonymous with alloy materials like white or rose gold.

Design-wise too, classic yellow gold wedding band are nowadays adapting fast to more flashy choices. Engravings, diamond or gemstone cuts are pretty common choices when it comes to designing wedding bands which kind of override the classic simplicity of yellow-golden bands. Additionally, yellow gold bands are best when coupled with other similar accessories, say a yellow golden wristwatch. In fact, a whole host of sartorial choices have to be rethought if you are seriously thinking about making an aesthetic statement with that band of yours. This is reason enough to think things over before buying one such band. More contemporary materials, thankfully, don’t let loose such consternation among their users.

Think of mens wedding bands Canada tungsten for example. An out and out contemporary choice, what makes such bands really fabulous is their durability and flexibility of style which seeps into other areas of your daily fashion. Tungsten carbide as well as silicone bands are redefining elegance by way of bringing in the element of comfort more and more into the discourse, which in my opinion classic yellow gold never allowed. Other path-breaking choices involve metals such as titanium. Or platinum if you are the wealthy type which, if used properly, do outlast you. And this is only a practical choice because our daily lives would obviously situate the jewelry in positions that can potentially damage it. Mens wedding bands Canada tungsten, for example, would handle rough outdoor usage more easily than say a 14K yellow gold band.

There are other intricacies too which involve gold wedding bands. They can and do cause allergies sometimes for one thing. Then there is the fact that gold wedding bands, especially the yellow ones, are largely dependent on the wearer’s skin tone for their own appeal to come forth. Modern contemporary metals don’t make such demands and thus democratize the whole arena I guess.
