As every bride is aware, planning a wedding is full of decisions….and picking out wedding bands is no exception! For brides that favor tradition, gold is a great choice. Gold is a historically precious metal with many meanings, including strength and commitment, to many cultures. In fact, gold is so scarce that all the gold ever mined could fit into two Olympic-size swimming pools! Another cool fact about gold: the oldest gold jewelry dates from 6,000 years ago and looks the same today as when it was first given. Pretty amazing.
As you know, I LOVE to see a bride personalize her day. :) If you prefer traditional yellow gold but still want to make your mark, gold is easy to have engraved with a message that will ensure you that your wedding bands are truly one-of-a-kind. If you prefer a completely different look and finish, you could select white or rose gold wedding bands! Loving some of these gorgeous gold bands below which are all supported by the World Gold Council…

Craftsmanship and intention are at the heart of Aurora Lopez Mejia‘s philosophy of artistry and design. Though many jewellers have followed in her footsteps, she was the first to make the written word an element of design in its most recent, modern incarnation. Check out this video to learn a bit more about her design process…

Giving engraved gold bands is a custom that goes way back. These are beautiful, and since I love WORDS, Aurora’s design process and philosophy are all the more inspiring. Here is a picture of an engraved gold band given to Queen Charlotte by King George III in the 1700s. http://www.royalcollection.org.uk/collection/65429/diamond-keeper-ring
