A plain two tone gold wedding band gives you the freedom to accessorize with either yellow gold or silver, allowing you greater choices of earrings, bracelets and necklaces because your wedding band itself is so versatile. This classical style weds the lavish richness of traditional yellow gold to the more modest white gold.
Historically, wedding rings became part of the wedding vows in the 1662 Book of Common Prayer’s matrimonial ceremony with the words: “With this ring I thee wed, with my body I thee worship, and with all my worldly goods I thee endow: In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen”. The double-ring ceremony (in which both husband and wife exchanged wedding bands) gained popularity at the beginning of the Second World War. Imagine those wartime brides, a wisp of lace covering their hair as they slipped a simple band on their grooms’ hands with their eyes full of hope, a prayer in their hearts that their new husbands would come home safely from battle. Those rings served as a symbol, a physical proof of their bond across oceans, across time. A plain two tone gold wedding band shows continuity with the past, when the ring was a simple piece of jewelry made holy when imbued with lifelong commitment and love.
