Apples of Gold – In line with a growing jewelry trend, online jeweler Apples of Gold has announced the release of a line of sterling silver wedding bands. While Apples of Gold specializes in fine gold jewelry, its new venture into the realm of sterling silver styles for the bride and groom is likely to draw attention from couples looking for quality rings on a budget.
Sterling silver is on the rise as a metal of choice for today’s brides and grooms, both for its affordability and its style. Afshin Yaghtin, CEO of Apples of Gold, explains: “With gold prices on the rise the past few years, sterling silver wedding bands offer a quality alternative that can reduce the stress of budgeting for a wedding. Many people also simply prefer silver to gold, so it’s a fashion choice for some as well.”
Apples of Gold clearly had fashion in mind when assembling their new collection of sterling silver wedding bands. The pieces it contains range from classic plain bands to less traditional styles such as spinner rings and designs featuring Celtic knots.
Silver’s resemblance to the most popular medium for wedding bands—white gold—allows it to imitate the sought-after look of this metal. Thus, it’s touted as an excellent option for individuals who want the look of white gold without the price tag, and a growing number of couples are taking advantage of sterling silver’s good looks. Yaghtin shares that “Many brides and grooms today prefer white gold over yellow gold. With silver introduced into the picture, a fashionable alternative is created that is more affordable than either.”
The debut of Apples of Gold’s sterling silver wedding bands is undoubtedly timely. As the lackluster economy continues to make headlines, a less expensive option for wedding rings offers welcome reprieve.
