Mixed Metal: Celebrities with Two Tone Wedding Sets Are Setting Trends

The mixed metal wedding band look, combining white gold or platinum engagement rings with a yellow or pink gold bands is a booming trend.  While some may prefer a more traditional look, the mismatched wedding set look can not be denied! Here are some of today’s trend setters showing off their bridal sets as well as a closer look at how yellow gold is impacting various subcategories of wedding bands including straight vs. curved wedding bands, diamond vs plain wedding bands, ring guards or single bands.

Simple Straight Wedding Bands

In a world of glitz and glamour a subtle new trend has emerged, replacing ‘blinged’ out curved diamond bands with understated symbolic plain gold bands that wrap straight around the finger. Not only do they make a bold statement but they can be worn on their own, paired with the engagement ring, or as a stackable wedding band. Here are some trend setting examples:

Zoe Saldana

Zoe Saldana’s wedding set is pure romance! Her hybrid gemstone three stone/halo engagement ring featuring a chic pear shape emerald with diamond side stones is perfectly paired with an understated plain gold wedding band.

Diamond Ring Guards

Where once ring guards were reserved for follow up wedding anniversaries or bridal set add-ons, today, the ring guard is a highly fashionable choice.  Select from straight ring guards, angle ring guards, diamond ring guards or plain ring guards.

Kaley Cuoco

If you are deciding between diamond ring guards or wedding band, look to Kaley Cuoco for inspiration!  She chose two antique style wedding bands in pink gold to act as diamond ring guard. By framing the top and bottom of her halo diamond engagement ring in a contrasting metal color it creates depth and balance.

Aisha Tyler

Its hard to tell from the picture, but it appears she elected two diamond eternity bands in white metal (either white gold or platinum) to frame her yellow gold baguette and round diamond band.  Not only did she superbly mix metals, but she perfected the stackable wedding band look too!

Classic Diamond Bands

Classic, shinny and elegant! While the plain gold band, ring guards, and eternity bands are growing in popularity a classic diamond wedding band is always a smart choice!

When you have an engagement ring as impressive as this, but still want some sparkle on your band, follow Joanna’s style and select a classic common prong wedding band.
