The wedding season is in full swing and with the holiday season underway, expect to see a seasonal surge in new engagements (with Christmas being the other popular time to become engaged), which all means that the thoughts of many couples and jewellers have turned to wedding jewellery.
Here are some images from a recent commission to photograph gold wedding bands, diamond engagement rings and diamond set wedding rings, individually and in groups.
The images were shot and retouched to allow a variety of advertising uses, including full page advertisements and posters.
Many customers are looking beyond traditional simple wedding bands to tie the knot and many jeweller offer diamond set rings, some of them along the lines of eternity and half-eternity rings. Pieces such as channel set bands can serve as engagement and/or wedding rings
The traditional “band of gold” (remember the classic Freda Payne song?) may well now be in platinum or in palladium. Similarly, although solitaires have a special significance as engagement rings, multi-stone pieces are also being chosen as engagement rings, as in the group here.
