WHAT IS A WEDDING BAND ?
A wedding band is a ring that is given during the wedding ceremony to symbolize matrimony. It is different than an engagement ring in a couple of different ways. The main distinction between the two is that a wedding band is worn by both people, whereas an engagement ring is usually only worn by the person who was proposed to. Other differences include style features and wearability. While an engagement ring tends to be more flashy – with diamonds, simulated lab grown diamonds or other gemstones – a wedding band is usually simpler in design. That is especially true for men’s wedding rings as they are most commonly designed with a plain shank and featured in one metal type with little to no design features.
