Titanium Engagement Rings, like any other kind of titanium jewelry, come in many different styles.
Titanium and Gold and Titanium and Platinum are preferred for engagement rings, but common metal types such as Titanium and 950 Silver are also used for engagement rings. This gives an infinite number of choices for the bride-to-be to exert her own individual style into the ring that she will wear.
Traditionally in the United States engagement rings have been worn exclusively by women, diamonds have been the most demanded in engagement rings since the middle of the 20th century. The main characteristic of the Solitaire engagement rings is that they have one single diamond. The prototype of this kind of rings was first introduced by Tiffany & Co. in 1886.
The traditional titanium engagement rings may have different bands and prong settings. Other major category is titanium engagement rings with side stones you can find this kind of rings in our Burnish Settings and Inlaid Burnish Settings collections. In these collections you will find as well rings with a larger diamond set in the middle and smaller diamonds on the side that fit under these categories.
Engagement rings with three-stone diamond are called trinity rings or trilogy rings, they have three diamonds set horizontally in a row and the bigger stone is placed in the center of the ring. These three diamonds according to the tradition represent the past, present, and future of the couple, for other people this arrangement has a religious significance.
A wedding set, or bridal set, is formed by an engagement ring and a wedding band that matches and you can buy them as a set. There are cases where the wedding ring looks "incomplete"; only when the two, engagement and wedding ring, are assembled that the set looks complete. In other cases, the wedding set includes two rings that have the same style and are worn stacked, and both look well as separated rings.
Engagement rings and wedding bands are usually sold together as a wedding set. After the wedding, to increase convenience and reduce the possibility of losing one of the rings, some brides choose to have the two rings welded together. There are as well trio ring sets that include a lady engagement ring, a lady wedding band and a man's wedding band. Normally the styles of the three rings match among them.
In countries like Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland, engagement rings traditionally are plain gold bands which are worn by both men and women. More ornate designs and other metals like Titanium are becoming more popular. Their engagement rings look like the wedding bands used in the United States, whereas women's wedding rings may look like US engagement rings.
In the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom, the engagement rings are worn on the left hand ring finger. This tradition dates to the ancient Egypt, where the fourth finger of the left hand was thought to contain the vena amoris or "vein of love", a vein leading directly to the heart. Traditionally in Germany the ring is worn on the left hand while engaged, once married it is moved to the right hand. In Poland, both the engagement ring and wedding band are worn on the right hand but this is changing lately.
In some Lutheran churches often the man wears as well an engagement ring. The men’s rings have the form of a plain band of a precious metal. Frequently, the engagement ring becomes the wedding ring for the man.
In Brazil, during the course of the engagement the groom and bride-to-be wear on the right hand a plain wedding band. The band is moved to the left hand after the wedding.
In Argentina, the groom and bride-to-be wear on the left hand while engaged a plain silver band. Once they are married the silver band is either replaced with the wedding.
In countries where both sexes wear engagement rings, the rings are plain bands, and there is no noticeable difference between "men's" and "women's" engagement ring designs.
