/ Wedding Ring Focus: Warm Yellow Gold Bands, Handcrafted by Our Artists /

Summer always brings about celebrations and declarations of love, with many choosing to tie the knot in this balmy season. We thought we'd take a moment to highlight some of our beautiful, symbolic wedding rings which have been handmade by our artists.

The wedding ring itself has a long history which traces back 6,000 years to Ancient Egypt. The Ancient Egyptians are believed to have started the tradition of exchanging rings, which are rich with symbolism: the circle form itself was believed to represent the eternal bond of lovers.

Most commonly worn on the left hand, this was also a tradition started by the Ancient Egyptians. They believed this finger housed a special vein that connected directly to the heart, called the 'vena amoris' (vein of love).

In today's modern world, anything goes for wedding bands. Whether it be bold and made from non-traditional materials, studded with gems or a simple, symbolic ring of gold, the choice is up to you!

Here are a few of our favourite yellow gold wedding rings in the gallery:

David Neale's rugged gold rings are warming & weighty, lovingly forged by hand from the finest golden ingredients.

Melanie Katsalidis's 'Endless' ring draws on the traditional symbolism of the wedding ring which represents the eternal love shared between two people. Two hidden gemstones set inside the band also symbolise this partnership, and can be customised with your preferred gems.

The 'Heavens' ring by Natalia Milosz-Piekarska sparkles with diamonds and pink sapphires, it's form heavily influenced by the hands of its maker.

Belinda Esperson's 'Wrap' ring signifies the layers of your unique story. Available in the gallery with sapphires or without.

The perfect example of what this richly symbolic ring signifies. The 'Sentiment' rings from Natalia Milosz-Piekarska can be made in any metal, personalised with your own sentiment.
