The Trend Spotter

The Trend Spotter

If you dress quite smartly then a wedding band should reflect this style, just as much as if you were to dress like a Viking! Therefore this is an important question to ask yourself when you are considering the perfect color and fit for a wedding band. Below we have listed some examples of dressing styles you might fall into.

  • Formal
  • For any formal occasion, you can never go wrong with a simple black band such as seen with The Mariner. But if you want something beyond just black then the silver Redwood is just as smart for a suited occasion.

  • Casual
  • For a more ‘everyday’ look, you can go with any ring type of course. In particular, if you wanted something patterned in a zebra design The Harper would be the pick for you! For if you wanted a ring that reminded you of nature and mountains, carved in silver, then The Rocky Top would be a great option for you as well.

  • Viking
  • For band of brothers and sisters of the shield and sword you will need rings that best suit this theme! Therefore, it would do you well to wear something that represents the aestehic of the hardy Viking. A robust, plain black in The Saga would be a great example of this. Or if you want somemthing with more color and wood The Norseman Ring is something what will hit that target. We have a wide range of Viking themed rings inspired by norse gods you can check out!

  • Roman
  • Stepping back in time and wanting to go a bit Roman? We have some rings for that occasion. We have The Hercules a simple band of silver which comes with a real punch and strength like the demigod himself. But if you’d prefer more color to go with the steel in your sword by complimenting it with some wood The Zeus is the right choice for you!

  • Queen or King 
  • If you dress as the King or Queen of your own world than your choice must ring must reflect your royal aesthetic. Simple colours and bands with a sparkle to them will do you well. For those that want a black band with glow you might want to look at the Black Meteorite. But if that is too plain The Armstrong with glow, with the added 18k rose gold for a more out there presentation. And to those that want something delicate which still holds the strength of the previous two bands? Look no further then The Victoria. These picks will surely make you royal!

  • We have a range of rings which suit any artsy dressing style that comes in a range of different colors. There is the piece inspired by Van Gough’s most famous work of art The Starry Night.

Colors not only must match with your dressing style, job, your partner’s own ring if you desire, and of course have meaning behind their selection. It is nice to have a ring which sparkles, is robust, and looks great, but it is another to have a band that you can see yourself inside as well. A ring which stands as a commitment to the partnership you have undertaken with your loved one.
