Diamonds don’t need to be reserved (and in fact, shouldn’t be reserved) for bridal jewellery or milestone gifts received from others. As a timeless, beautiful, and versatile gem, diamonds can be worn however and whenever you like. Case in point: diamond band rings. While these styles might make you think of wedding bands, we prefer to think of them as keepsake bands: precious styles that can be given to a loved one, or bought for yourself, for any reason – and worn forever.
Whether saying ‘I do’ or shopping just for you, discover the versatile ways you can wear a diamond band – from fine and dainty styles to brilliant statement rings.
1. Wedding Ring
Let’s start with the most classic diamond band placement. Not only a precious and enduring symbol of your love, choosing a diamond band for your wedding ring can enhance the look of your diamond engagement ring. Keep it simple and timeless with a delicate diamond band, or amplify your bridal ring stack with a bold style or uniquely shaped band.
2. Eternity Ring
Whether you wear a simple, precious metal wedding band or a diamond one, your eternity band is the perfect opportunity to add more brilliance to your stack. Traditionally set with diamonds the entire way around the band, you can choose any diamond band design that you love for your eternity ring. Try a band with contrasting diamond shapes to your wedding ring for a unique look; or try a shaped or contoured band to add interest to your overall bridal ring look.
3. Fashion Ring – Minimalist Style
A diamond band ring is the perfect, timeless way to introduce diamonds to your look. More understated than a cocktail-style diamond ring, but eye-catching enough to be worn on its own, a band design will bring just the right amount of sparkle that you can wear every day.
4. Fashion Ring – Statement Style
A diamond band is the ultimate, versatile addition to a statement ring stack. Pairing perfectly with yellow gold for a classic yet trending look, you can also stack diamond bands with rings in your preferred colour of gold, or sterling silver. Match the metal colour of your diamond band setting to your other rings to keep it polished, and stack rings in different textures to create your bespoke look.
5. Add to your bridal ring stack
Celebrating a special anniversary, a milestone in your relationship, or simply want to build on your bridal ring stack? A diamond band is the perfect keepsake to mark an important moment, symbolise your enduring love, and amplify your look. Match the diamond shapes in your extra keepsake ring to those in your engagement, wedding, and eternity rings for an overall brilliant look; or mix your shapes and textures for a unique take.
Whether a classic symbol of your love, a keepsake piece to mark a special moment, or simply a timeless fashion piece, a diamond band ring will have a forever-place in your collection.
