“‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”
When you say “I do,” God Himself binds you and the one you love together, allowing the two of you to truly become one. While all wedding bands represent your connection to your spouse, those with extra touches of symbolism can be especially meaningful expressions of your bond.
Christian wedding bands that feature Bible verses, crosses, doves or other emblems of faith are a popular way to celebrate that God brought you and the one you love together, but they’re far from the only way. Apples of Gold carries a number of wedding bands that communicate the connection between husband and wife with unique symbols of love.
The Two-Halves One Flesh Wedding Band Ring presents a picture of marriage inspired by the very first words spoken about the unique relationship between a husband and wife, as recorded in the book of Genesis. Two contrasting halves, one of 14K white gold and one of 14K yellow gold, combine to form a modern symbol of two becoming one. These complementary metals meet in a waving seam that wraps gracefully around a flat 7mm band.
Celtic wedding bands are another meaningful way to represent your relationship. The continual knot motifs that are featured in these pieces have been adopted by many as symbols of eternity, making them ideal for communicating endless love. In addition, their intertwining nature forms a picture of the way that a husband and wife are woven together so that they share one another’s joys and sorrows.
The Caedmon Celtic Wedding Band in 14K Two-Tone Gold is a striking example of the ability of Celtic designs to represent the bond that’s formed in a marriage. A strong, slightly angular knot motif wraps around this ring in seamless 14K yellow gold, while a 14K white gold background allows this knot to really pop. This shining contrast draws attention to the unique look of this ring, and to the meaning behind it.
A braid can also symbolize the bond of a marriage relationship, as individual strands combine to create a single cord that’s stronger on its own than any strand could be alone. This is gorgeously demonstrated by the 14K White Gold 7.6mm Braided Wedding Band Ring. This designer style combines several textures to create a shining reminder of your unbreakable connection to each other. A braid of gleaming flat strands is hugged by elegant lines of milgrain and accented by smooth edges.
If you’re looking to celebrate your bond, try one of these uniquely meaningful wedding rings. Each one is a beautiful picture of what God has joined together.
