Matt Finished Wedding Bands
Matt finish wedding bands are a modern and distinctive gents wedding ring trend for 2023. They are the perfect choice for those looking for a simplistic, sophisticated and classic design, whilst still wanting to break away from tradition. A matt finish on a men's wedding band provides a velvety, brushed appearance with a smooth surface, which will give the ring a non-reflective look. The subtle style of a matt finish wedding ring pairs well with any style, making them a timeless but individual choice that will never stray from being fashionable. Our collection of men's wedding bands at Oscar & Olivia features many different finished bands, such as matt, polished, brushed and more, which you can browse online.
Mixed Metal Wedding Rings
Recently, and continuing into 2023, a highly popular wedding ring style for both ladies and gents has been mixed metal bands. This is an excellent option for couples who are looking for a wedding band that stands out as unique in a subtle, but distinctive manner. Mixing precious metals such as white gold, yellow gold, rose gold and platinum within one, circular band, allows you to explore the combination of both warm and cool tones, creating a unique and modern look that is tailored to what suits you best.
The possibilities surrounding the design of a mixed metal wedding ring are endless, so to learn more about the precious metal options and which is the right choice for you and your partner, then you can explore our guide to the precious metals. If the thought of a mixed metal wedding ring appeals to you, then discover our bespoke service at Oscar & Olivia Jewellery. We will be happy to help you create your perfect mixed metal wedding ring that is unique to you and your partner!
Black Zirconium Bands
Black zirconium wedding bands have emerged as a desirable choice amongst men for many different reasons, one being their sentimental value. A black ring symbolises the strength and the power associated with the quality of love, and is a great way for a couple to show that they are solely dedicated to each other, and that they believe in their union above all else. Zirconium is also a popular material for gents wedding bands because of its unmatched durability, scratch resistance and hypoallergenic nature. They also offer a both contemporary and hard-wearing option, which is great for those with an active lifestyle or hands-on job.
Available in a variety of styles, metals and colours at Oscar & Olivia Jewellery, there is a band to suit every style when it comes to zirconium wedding rings. However, despite the endless options, black zirconium wedding rings have appeared to be the most popular choice. When you choose a black zirconium wedding band, you are assured to have a lifetime of comfort, showing that this style of ring isn’t just a good option for 2023, but is a good option for forever! This wedding ring style is also perfect for groom and groom weddings - book an appointment to learn more about your wedding band options at Oscar & Olivia Jewellery!
One of the most seen wedding ring trends of 2023 is to incorporate a matching feature into both partner’s bands. Due to differences in hand and finger size, skin tones, and personal styles, a couple’s wedding rings aren’t often completely identical. So when it comes to matching, it may be a small design feature, such as the precious metal, pattern, material, engraving or a textured element that draws the rings together. Matching features are unique to each couple, and are often created during a bespoke wedding ring service. This allows for each member of the couple to express their own individuality within the style of their wedding ring, whilst still having a complementing or matching feature that symbolises their unity as one.
Engraved Wedding Rings
Another main wedding ring trend of 2023 is to convey personal sentiment, value, and meaning to your band, and a popular way of doing this is by engraving. This personalisation can be done in many different ways, including engravings of dates, names, small images, motifs, and symbols. These unique features are all designed to represent the never-ending love and special bond between two people, where a sense of unity and harmony is displayed, touching on a couple’s ever-lasting connection.
There are many different styles of mens wedding bands and ladies wedding rings that can be beautifully engraved to your own, personal specifications. To learn more about these different wedding ring styles and why you should have yours engraved, read our guide.
Textured and Patterned Bands
Another wedding ring trend for 2023 is more of a textured or patterned effect on both ladies and gents bands - something with class and elegance, but with a little more character than a plain wedding ring. Patterned wedding rings are a modern, contemporary and unique ring style, and are a great choice for those who want a distinctive ring that will reflect their personal style and taste.
The style and design of textured and patterned wedding rings ranges from incorporating textured embellishments on the surface of the band, to simple etchings or engravings, and more intricate and decorative elements like motifs and geometric shapes. These designs can cover the whole of the band or just a section, and due to this detail, engravings are typically done on the inside of the band in this case.
