Historical Jewellery That Changed the World

Every now and again, a visionary comes along and shakes up their industry.

So, in favour of celebrating the best of the best, here are some of our favourite historical jewellery that has changed the world for the better!

Men’s Wedding Bands: How to Choose the Right Ring

The expert guide to picking the perfect wedding band. 

bride and groom showing off wedding bands

Men’s wedding bands have only recently been cast into a bigger spotlight. Until now, the wedding ring hype surrounded the bride, seemingly leaving grooms out of the fun; but not anymore! We’ve noticed men’s wedding band styles changing drastically to include a variety of metals and designs! 

The groom’s band used to be chosen simply to match the bride-to-be’s ring, but, the band is so much more than just a matching accessory. The groom will wear this band almost every single day for the rest of his life and it is meant to symbolize the lifelong commitment being made. So, it’s only right that just as much time is spent making sure the groom has the perfect band. 

Men are starting to care a lot more about their wedding band and how it is styled, and we don’t blame them! With all the new styles and an abundance of choice coming out in the industry, it can be difficult now to narrow all the options down to a single choice.

So, if you’re engaged or considering a proposal, here are a few things to keep in mind while you search for your wedding band!
