Diamond Wedding Band Frequently Asked Questions
What should you look for in a diamond wedding band?
When choosing a band, you should consider the ring's basic qualities like its craftsmanship, quality, and profile (or how high it sits on your hand) and design. "But most of all, it's important to choose a ring that you feel complements your engagement ring and fits your personal style and lifestyle," says Elizabeth Gibson, founder and CEO of Eliza Page, a jewelry store in Austin, Texas. "The choice is totally up to you."
How do you choose the best diamond wedding band for your lifestyle?
"Consider if you will always wear the band and engagement ring together, or will wear the rings separately often (read: a wedding band by itself)," says Gibson. "If you're wearing your rings separately, you might want to choose a larger wedding band that can stand on its own."
Should you insure a diamond wedding band?
Yes, you should insure your wedding band. "Your wedding band is subject to loss, theft and damage just like all of your other pieces of jewelry," says Melissa Becker, Vice President of Lavalier personal jewelry insurance. "Diamond bands are at risk of losing accent diamonds, which would usually be covered under your insurance policy." In most cases, the cost to insure your wedding band is 1% or 2% of the value. For example, adding a $2,000 wedding band to your policy could cost as little as $20 to insure annually, or roughly less than $2 a month.
What diamond wedding bands are trending?
In a word: A range of nontraditional diamond wedding band designs are hot right now. "We're seeing a lot of larger diamond bands (think Instagram big!), domed gold bands, structural organic bands, alternating fancy shaped diamond bands, tiara or contour bands and baguette bands," Gibson says.

Charles & Colvard Square Caydia Lab Grown Diamond Signature Asymmetrical Solitaire Mens Ring
If lots of bling isn't your thing, a diamond ring with a more understated vibe could be for you (yes, they exist). This men's wedding band features an off-center lab-grown diamond, rather than a more traditional center stone. The end result? A more subtle diamond wedding band with a distinctly masculine vibe.
