5 contemporary wedding bands to seal the deal

5 contemporary wedding bands to seal the deal

For the love of simplicity

Text: Andrea Sim

Contrary to popular belief, diamonds are not a rock-solid quantifier of love

From the traditional — plain, hammered or filigree — gold band to the extravagance of eternity rings, couples the world over have uttered their vows to increasingly ornate wedding bands. While diamonds are indeed a girl's best friend, picking out a design that's intrinsically unique says more about your love than any precious stone can. 

Bring on Tiffany & Co.'s Elsa Peretti curved ring, Louis Vuitton's monogram Infini faceted band, or Chaumet's honeycomb stackables — these rings forgo the flash of any diamonds, sapphires and emeralds. They're novel designs to be cherished with a pared-back beauty that will accomodate even the most elaborate of engagement rings. Already gone to town on the adornments with the latter? Pick a contemporary wedding band to balance out the scales, much like a worthy better half does for you. Go on, #SayIDo.
