Trend: All-in-One Bridal Rings

WRD icon

Over the past two decades it feels like everything wedding related has gotten bigger, bolder, and more expensive. As bombastic wedding trends have crossed the pond from the US we have seen a huge rise in flashy engagement rings and weddings with endless guest lists. However, thanks to Covid, weddings have been forced to downsize across the globe. This has led to a shift in focus for wedding needs, and a growing trend for more meaningful micro celebrations. Along with the shrinking of the wedding itself, we have seen a huge rise in couples asking the same question: do I need to wear a wedding ring and an engagement ring? The answer to this is a resounding no! As a result of this, all-in-one bridal rings which function as both a wedding and engagement ring have exploded in popularity.

So what are bridal rings? They are usually a simple sleek design featuring a small diamond or another gemstone. Their designs tend to be more contemporary and show a step away from the over the top vintage designs which have been dominating the engagement ring market. This minimalist approach to wedding jewellery is uber chic, very affordable, and is set to continue on growing in popularity over the years to come.

With this growing trend in mind, we have curated a collection of rings which are ideal for use as bridal rings. From minimalist to maximalist, there is an all-in-one ring for every style.


Toi et Moi

Endlessly romantic, the toi et moi ring style was popularised when Napoleon chose one to propose to Josephine. The style is characterised by a pair of stones, signifying toi et moi. Or you and me in English. These rings are available in loads of different styles from simple to decorative.

Solitaire Style

Just because you are bucking tradition by only choosing one ring doesn’t mean you need to avoid it altogether! There are plenty of simple rings inspired by the classic solitaire that are perfect for use as bridal rings. The single stone design keeps things understated while the inclusion of diamonds add the right amount of luxury to make it feel special.

Contemporary Design

Without the pressure of needing a ring that can fit with a wedding ring, you can go more avant garde with an all-in-one ring. This is a great way to let your individuality shine through. It is much better to choose a ring you genuinely love than a ring just because it is traditional.

Choosing a combined wedding and engagement ring works really well for all genders. For people who prefer more masculine styled jewellery, there are lots of options for all-in-one wedding rings. We love the inclusion of decorative jewellery techniques and alternative gemstones to really make these rings stand out.

Stand Alone Pieces

Some rings simply need no accompaniment. If you want a piece of jewellery that really speaks for itself, then there is no need to gussy it up with a second ring. The added benefit here is that you can spend a little more on one piece of jewellery without having to worry about budgeting for the second. So get your dream ring!
