This comprehensive guide will navigate you through the process of selecting your dream wedding ring in Toronto, covering everything from styles and materials to customization options to make it completely yours.

Understanding Wedding Ring Styles

When it comes to selecting the perfect wedding ring, understanding the various styles available is essential. Each style carries its own unique charm and symbolism, allowing couples to find a ring that truly resonates with their individual preferences and love story.


Classic Styles:

  • Minimalist Bands: Minimalist bands offer a simple and understated aesthetic, with clean lines and simple designs. Ideal for couples with a minimalist or contemporary style, these rings focus on craftsmanship and subtlety.
  • Vintage-Inspired Rings: Inspired by the elegance of bygone eras, vintage-inspired rings feature intricate details, filigree work, and milgrain edges. These rings ooze with romance and nostalgia, perfect for couples who appreciate timeless charm!
  • Pave Rings or Eternity Bands: Pave rings are adorned with tiny, closely-set diamonds or gemstones along the band, creating a dazzling, continuous sparkle. This modern design adds glamour and sophistication to any ring.

Unique Styles:

  • Stackable Rings: Stackable rings allow couples to mix and match multiple bands to create a personalized and versatile look. Whether adorned with diamonds, gemstones, or intricate designs, stackable rings offer endless possibilities for customization.
  • Pave Rings or Eternity Bands: Eternity bands feature a continuous line of diamonds or gemstones encircling the entire band, symbolizing eternal love and commitment. These rings are a popular choice for anniversary gifts and as wedding bands for couples celebrating everlasting devotion.
  • One Ring: All-in-one rings are a single more dramatic ring that is worn as both an engagement ring and wedding band together, where traditionally people wear 2 rings.

Matching Wedding Bands:
Matching wedding bands symbolize the unity and harmony between partners, with coordinated designs that complement each other. Whether opting for identical bands or complementary styles, our custom jewellery design services may be the perfect solution 

Exploring Materials and Metals

When browsing wedding rings in Toronto, understanding the properties and characteristics of different metals is crucial in finding the perfect ring that suits your style, preferences, and lifestyle.

Popular Metals:

  • Gold: Gold has long been cherished for its timelessness. Available in various hues including yellow, white, and rose, gold, it offers versatility and options. 
    • Rose Gold: Rose gold wedding rings in Toronto have surged in popularity for their romantic and feminine appeal. Composed of gold alloyed with copper, rose gold exudes a warm and radiant hue that complements a variety of skin tones. Its romantic charm and vintage-inspired elegance make rose gold an increasingly sought-after choice.
    • White Gold: White gold wedding rings offer a sophisticated and modern alternative to traditional yellow gold. Created by alloying gold with white metals such as nickel, palladium, or silver, white gold rings showcase a brilliant white luster that pairs beautifully with diamonds and gemstones. With its timeless elegance and versatility, white gold remains a popular choice for couples seeking a refined and understated aesthetic.

  • Platinum: Renowned for its durability and rarity, platinum is a popular choice. With its naturally white hue and exceptional strength, platinum wedding rings offer enduring beauty and unmatched longevity. Platinum's hypoallergenic properties make it an ideal choice for those with sensitive skin.

  • Palladium: Palladium is a lustrous and lightweight metal that shares many characteristics with platinum, including its white color and hypoallergenic properties. Palladium wedding rings offer a more affordable alternative to platinum while still providing exceptional durability and a contemporary aesthetic.

Alternative Materials:

  • Titanium: Titanium wedding rings are prized for their remarkable strength, lightweight feel, and hypoallergenic properties. Ideal for active lifestyles and outdoor enthusiasts, titanium rings are more resistant to scratches, corrosion, and tarnishing, making them a practical and stylish choice.

  • Stainless Steel: Stainless steel wedding rings combine affordability, durability, and versatility, making them a practical choice for budget-conscious couples. With its sleek and contemporary look, stainless steel rings are resistant to rust, tarnish, and fading, ensuring lasting beauty over the years.

  • Wood and other unique materials: for a truly unique and beautiful design, consider a wedding band crafted from beautiful mahogany, rosewood, or even maple. All these materials and more can be found in our extensive wedding ring collection.

The Importance of Metal Purity and Grading:

When selecting your wedding ring, consider the purity and grading of the metal to ensure quality and authenticity. Reputable jewellers like Made You Look adhere to strict standards and certifications, guaranteeing the purity and authenticity of their metal offerings.

Prioritizing Ethical and Sustainable Metals

Everybody has different priorities when it comes to making decisions about where you will purchase your special jewellery.  We can assume that if you are interested in Made You Look, not only are you interested in owning something handmade, but perhaps you are also prioritizing shopping locally and supporting a business that is in your city.  And, if those two things are important to you, then we can also assume that you would like to make sure that the raw materials used are also sourced ethically and responsibly.

We are proud to say that all of our suppliers implement better business practices and ensure that their production processes are being executed with our environment as their top priority.  The jewellery industry is dedicated to recycling and improving environmental practices and some of our major suppliers are spearheading these initiatives.

Here are all of the reasons that you can feel good about your choice to have jewellery made here at Made You Look.

  • We recycle all of our metal – we even sweep up our dust to take to the refinery.  Since metal is valuable, none of it is being wasted.
  • We can use 100% recycled metal – we have access to several suppliers who provide SCS Certified 100% recycled metal. SCS Global Services is the certifier of choice for recycled content claims around the world, and for companies seeking certification of their in-house recycling programs. We can also provide you with information about our suppliers' Toxic Reduction Plans and promises to act responsibly in all areas of production including water, waste, and energy management.
  • You can feel good about shopping locally.  Buying local means you are giving jobs to people in your neighbourhood and keeping money in the local economy. Everything is made right here, not in a factory overseas.  Many of the artists pick up their supplies on foot, by bike or TTC!
