What defines modern wedding bands? First, these rings offer unique variations on the traditional symbol of unbroken love. The modern art period (generally accepted as the 1880s to the late 1960s) was defined by a wide variety of stylistic movements from post-impressionism (and artists such as Vincent Van Gogh) and Cubism (and the works of Pablo Picasso) to the Surrealism of Salvador Dali and the Pop Art of Andy Warhol. Dozens of movements are considered part of the modern art period, making it a time characterized by innovation and seeking out new forms of expression. Modern wedding bands harness this spirit of innovation.
The term “modern” is also used to denote anything that’s contemporary or current. Modern wedding bands are not only inventive, but also influenced by the trends of the moment. Apples of Gold carries a wide selection of wedding rings that embody both innovation and contemporary style:
• The Apples of Gold Two Halves One Flesh Wedding Band Ring is a unique picture of the joining of two lives into one, as described in Genesis 2:24: “a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.” (NKJV) Both white and yellow gold combine in this modern interpretation of an ancient principle that has been the basis for marriages for millennia.
Modern wedding bands offer fresh ways to represent the promises you make at the altar. Their innovative and contemporary styles give today’s couples unique ways to demonstrate their love.
