2018 wedding rings

The ring’s the thing: The hottest wedding band picks for 2018

Country songstress Tammy Wynette once crooned that only love can make a golden wedding ring — but in 2018, it’s not just gold that couples can find in their wedding rings.

Rose gold returns as a metallic trend this year, especially in feminine rings, and masculine and gender-neutral rings feature deeper colors. For couples looking to find the perfect bands to place on each others’ fingers during the wedding ceremony, Harris Botnick of Worthmore Jewelers offered up a few ideas.

Read Wilson








Read Wilson, $1,895 to $4,995

These gender-neutral rings come in a number of widths and inlay options. This particular ring is made from old-world, hand-engraved titanium that is heated to achieve a bluish undertone. Twenty-four-karat yellow gold, shown here, or silver is then laid out and hammered in place.

Alp the Jeweler








Alp The Jeweler, $889

For trendy, feminine partners, this Alp The Jeweler piece is a top choice from Worthmore. Botnick said Alp’s Turkish heritage influences all of his designs, including this 18-karat piece that uses an age-old technique called graulation. It’s also available in yellow and white gold.








Chris Ploof, $998 to $5,979

Metalsmith Chris Ploof will bring his wares to the Midtown location of Worthmore on April 14, and the Decatur store on April 15. Ploof used the Japanese art of Mokume Gane, which produces a distinctive layered pattern similar to wood grain, to achieve the effects in this collection. For this particular ring, he also added part of the Gibeon meteorite — which fell in prehistoric times in Namibia — into the pattern.
