Wedding Ring Ideas for a Second Marriage


Second Marriage Wedding Ring Set in Black

Couples going into second marriages usually have a different perspective on what type of wedding ring is suitable and representative of their relationship. A second marriage means more independence in making choices and entails finding a wedding band that defines a couple.

There are a number of options and ideas available that can help couples about to embark on a second marriage contemplate what they really want a wedding ring to represent in their union, and some of those ideas that are traditional as well as innovative include:

Color Variances

One idea that sets a second time around wedding ring apart from a more traditional ring is color. Birthstone ring gemstones such as sapphires, emeralds, rubies, garnets, amethysts and other significant stones can be set in with diamonds to create an individualized look. Every birthstone has its own unique meaning that can be represented in a couple’s ring choice. Multi-color bands with various gemstone combinations make good choices as well and can even incorporate the birthstones of children from a previous marriage to express family unity.

Commitment

Many couples on the road to a second marriage believe that their bond is a strong commitment to lasting love, and they would prefer that a wedding ring be a lifelong reminder of their allegiance to one another. More romantic ideas come to mind through infinity type bands and matching sets that are symbolized with inlays of hearts, intertwined hands, and other symbols that indicate devotion and loyalty. An all around band with diamonds, such as a princess cut can provide a more modern yet romantic appeal as well as a turnaround from plainer bands of the past. Any kind of matching set symbolizes commitment and can usually be custom made to fit a couple’s design.

Simplicity

Second marriages can be much more grounded and characteristic of clear-cut intentions to have a realistic relationship and establish a departure from the incompleteness of a first marriage. A simple marriage ceremony is usually the choice in such arrangements, and a plain wedding band with one diamond or another stone centered in a wider band of either white, yellow, platinum or even different metals, like tungsten carbide and titanium can make a simple yet affirmative statement of what a second marriage means to a couple.

Engraving

Both outside and inside engraving can truly set apart a second marriage wedding band from more ordinary bands and can bring special memories and emotions in one symbol. Messages, dates, short sayings, patterns, icons and other expressions can all be incorporated into a wedding ring. Outside engraving on wider bands can also incorporate ideas or themes that couples have in common with the addition of gemstones or diamonds. Texture, color, and elegance can make a wedding band truly original.

There are hundreds of ideas for selecting an ideal wedding ring for a second marriage. With a flow of creative juices, consultation with a wedding ring expert and input from both partners, the experience can be both fun and meaningful with a positive ring outcome.
