Fine Palladium jewellery is already available in stores, with renowned stockists such as The Wedding Ring Specialist seeking only the purest, most natural and whitest palladium for their wedding rings. According to reports, around 5,000 articles were hallmarked by the four UK offices in Birmingham, Edinburgh, London and Sheffield in the first nine days after a change in the law created the palladium hallmark. This is in sharp contrast to the introduction of hallmarking of platinum in 1975 where for the first nine years less than 100 units were handled each year.
Among these Western themes wedding and engagement rings are horseshoe rings. For the horse-riding couple or the people who wish to invoke good luck in their marriage and life, these horseshoe rings capture the essence of American and Western romance. They can capture the spirit of the horse or the spirit of the free-roaming cowgirl and cowboy. Or, they might just capture the spirit of rusticana. They may come in a horseshoe shaped mounting of the ring or in the creation of a horseshoe design using diamonds or other precious gems. Anything from a diamond solitaire to turquoise can be used for the stone, while the usual precious metals of choice are sterling silver, yellow or white gold. Couples can get matching horseshoe rings or antique-style rings such as the now very stylish old European cut diamond wedding and engagement bands.
There are no rules of matching or not matching you and your partners' wedding bands. You don't have to match, but many couples do prefer to. What's fun is that you don't have to match exactly, but you can choose to match through metal choice, style, gemstones, motif or any other various ways. Many wedding rings are part of larger collections with varied widths, from narrow to wide, such as is the case of the many styles of our river ring collection or the Wind and Waves collection. Even if you do not find an exact match, many jewelers can do variations through a custom design process, which we are particularly fond of, experienced with and have lots of fun with.
Among the Anglo-Normans, the ring was always worn on the middle finger of the right hand, while in the latter part of the seventeenth century the wedding-ring was often worn on the thumb. The Quakers reject the ring as a remnant of Pagan superstition, and in the time of the Commonwealth the Puritans endeavored to abolish it for the same reason.
