A lot of people are confused when it comes to buying a wedding ring and a wedding band. Though there isn’t any difference now, but there used to be and it still varies from place to place depending on where you live. Wedding bands and weddings rings are essentially meant for the same thing.

Wedding rings are more stuffed with gems and are heavily decorated while the bands remain simple, such as hammered wedding bands, picture above. This is why wedding bands are preferred more by men than women even though there is no gender discrimination for the rings in the modern era.

As the time passed, traditions changed and now even women can wear wedding bands as they come in different style ranges, with more adornment, details and novelty that attract women. Previously they used to be more masculine, but jewelry designers have tried their best to make them extraordinarily feminine and appealing to the female market.
