Guest Contribution : Why is a Wedding Band so Important?

Although not necessary for the legalities of a wedding, the wedding band, and the swapping of them during a ceremony, is still one of the most symbolic things that many of us will do during our lives.

There are many reasons that a quality wedding band is so important for both the bride and her groom. Here, we turn our focus to the male half of the partnership, and explore the importance of a wedding band both in general, as well as any sex-specific reasons why a quality ring is so important.

Place of Work

Wherever we work, our hands and face are the most exposed parts of our body. Some workplaces, such as building sites and certain factories, are more male dominated and the nature of these locations and lend themselves to a wedding band getting damaged.

Therefore, a stronger metal such as tungsten is a better option for many men than say, gold, which is not as strong and more likely to get damaged. Tungsten also requires less on-going ‘maintenance,’ it’ll never lose its shine, for example.

Man Hands

Whether you believe it is down to God or evolution, the fact is that men have bigger, coarser hands than women do. A wedding ring that is small or feeble looking just seems out of place on a man’s hand. While women a probably better suited to a thin band, on a man it just appears plain silly.

A nice, bold, prominent ring is what is needed for a guy, especially when he will want to show off the fact that he is married to a wonderful woman, and proud to be so.

Only Jewellery

Men tend to wear less jewellery than women do, for whatever reason. It is only natural then, that if a wedding band is going to be a man’s only piece of jewellery, that it should be something of a ‘show stealer.’

Of course, we’re not saying women shouldn’t have a great looking band just because they may wear more jewellery, but you understand where we’re coming from.

The Symbolism

Into the more general reasons now, and we touched on the symbolism that comes with wedding bands earlier.

What exactly does a wedding band symbolise?

In its most basic sense, it is a sign that one is married, but taking it deeper it is a symbol of your love for someone based around the wedding vows related to ‘with this ring,’ for example. If a couple has matching wedding bands, or perhaps they are engraved or customised in some other way, this further adds to the importance.

Everyone Asks

We were not able to talk about quality wedding bands without getting this in! When you are ‘circulating’ at your wedding reception or party later on, everyone asks for a look at the rings, even that of the groom.

Why have the token ‘oh isn’t it wonderful’ when you can have a top quality wedding band and give people a real ‘wow’ factor. You shouldn’t worry too much about what people think, obviously, but if you have a stunning wedding band, why not show it off?

Embrace the Tennis Bracelet

Hi Poutlings!

serena williams 150709

You don’t have to be Serena Williams in order to rock a tennis bracelet. However, there is something you can learn from her. Even when dressed in her sport wear she makes sure to add a piece of glamour to ensemble with her signature tennis bracelet. This serves well to remind us that although she is sporty and athletic, she is still a lady with elegant taste. With the popularity of diamond tennis bracelets increasing, so have the choices.

classic tennis bracelet

Whenever you hear the word “classic” you immediately think simple and sophisticated, and that is an accurate depiction of a classic four prong tennis bracelet. With a slender row of beautiful diamonds sitting along your wrist, this bracelet is perfect for anyone who likes a mixture of dazzling and delicate. Along with its undeniable beauty, this piece of jewellery is also lightweight and flexible making it the right choice for “soccer mom” or CEO.

designer tennis bracelet

A designer piece is for the one who wants to make a bold statement. The one who thinks that simple is just a little too simple. Designer tennis bracelets have an added charm with their elaborate craftsmanship, taking tennis bracelets to a new level with designs like wavy, twirl, or S-shaped links, to name a few. Like Serena has shown, a tennis bracelet can be worn on and off the court; and with a wide variety of styles to choose from you can make it your own just as she did.

And – DID YOU KNOW: Tennis bracelets were once called eternity bracelets? Quite a beautiful sentiment isn’t it? Why not pair up your eternity bracelet with a diamond eternity ring? This ring is excellent for celebrating a wedding, anniversary, or just your love. With an option of a single or double row diamonds, you can decide just how extravagant you want it. So go ahead, make someone’s day and set their heart on fire!

Heya Poutlings!

Miley Cyrus sure looks happy, and who can blame her?!

The 19-year-old bride-to-be and her handsome fiancé, Liam Hemsworth, were stunning at the Australians in Film Awards and benefit dinner in Century City, Calif., on Wednesday.

Miley wore a low-cut black dress, flaunting her cleavage with a built-in corset, and proudly showed off her gorgeous engagement ring.

“I just wanted to wear something simple because tonight is all about him,” she told Us Weekly. Hemsworth, 22, was an honoree at the event. “I’m super stoked for him. He’s really happy and it’s great!”

The Tennessee native also gave some insight into what attracted her to her beau of three years. She explained: “I think there’s a masculinity about [Australian men] that’s like growing up in the South, like I did. It’s very respectful and they are a little bit more respectful.

She is looking stunning, and he is as sexy as usual.
