Why Wedding Bands?
Nobody knows for sure the exact origins of marriage bands and matrimony but historians know that Ancient Egyptians wore them as symbols of their love, believing the circle represented a pathway into fate and eternity. Later, Romans wore rings, although they held symbolism more about claiming a betrothed than about love.It wasn’t until the middle of the 9th Century that we have records of rings being used in marriage ceremonies. Early Christian leaders gave the rings spiritual significance and claimed they symbolized eternal love and devotion.
The tradition of wearing the ring on the fourth finger of the left hand is also obscure, with some historians believing mistaken ideas of anatomy had ancient people believing that finger to be directly connected to the heart and others claiming the choice of fingers was simply practical because the ring finger on the left hand was likely the location that would create the least wear on the ring itself. While the origins of wedding bands might be unclear, there place in relationships isn’t, and Bert Levi Family Jeweler’s loves when we have the opportunity to provide such a wonderful symbol of a relationship.
Men’s Marriage Bands
Men’s marriage bands, just about more than any other item of jewelry, have a wide variety of options entirely dependent on the personality of the couple involved. At Bert Levi Family Jewelers, we understand the need for deep personalization of this particular item, and our GIA Accredited Jewelry Professionals are standing by to help.
Matched Bands for Couples
In some cases, the idea of a matched wedding set is very important to a couple. This can present unique challenges in that engagement rings and marriage bands for women tend toward feminine elegance while men’s bands are designed in a more masculine way. Balancing those diametrically opposed objectives is one of the things we do best.
For men, the need for gold or platinum in wedding bands isn’t as obvious as it might be for traditional women’s rings. Titanium bands are not uncommon. Nor is it unusual to see men’s marriage bands in steel, tungsten, and other metals. We can help you with a wedding ring no matter the particular metal you’d like to be involved.
Consider how you use your hands and how strong and scratch resistant you might need your ring to be. For example, if you work in a very labor-intensive industry, something like titanium or tungsten can resist wear so that your ring remains beautiful in spite of what it goes through.
Men’s Marriage Bands with Diamonds
Many men choose not to have any gems in their marriage bands while others want to share in the tradition of precious gems as part of the commemoration of their marriages. We have numerous designs that include diamonds or other gems such as rubies, emeralds, or sapphires. In many cases, a men’s band will mirror the diamonds surrounding a solitaire on the bride’s engagement ring and a splash of color adds to the elegance of the band.
We have three generations of experience helping new marriages in regards to their wedding sets, and as far as we’re concerned the rings ought to reflect the personalities of the people involved. When you’re ready to decide on a men’s marriage band, drop by our convenient Hillcrest location and let us help.

Ladies Marriage Bands
Often times, ladies marriage bands don’t get as much thought and attention as engagement rings, and we can understand that. After all, the engagement ring comes with all the excitement that goes along with wonder and uncertainty. Is she going to say yes? Will she like the ring? Is it something she can show off?
Nonetheless, at Bert Levi Family Jewelers, we’re excited when couples take similar care to consider the marriage band.
Matching the Men’s Bands
Often times, as a symbol of the relationship and the commitment of the couple, a woman’s band is designed to complement the man’s marriage ring.
Since the very nature of jewelry is that styles are vastly different for men and women, this can sometimes be tricky. But Bert Levi Family Jewelers is a third generation jeweler, and we understand ways to match bands in both subtle and not-so-subtle ways.
Matching the Engagement Ring
One of the most beautiful and elegant ways to wear a ring is to have a band designed to be worn right next to the engagement ring and to complement it. The two rings together almost form a single piece of jewelry with designs and stones that complement each other.
Whether it’s a splash of color to reflect colors highlighted in the engagement ring or a continuation of an etched design, a beautiful engagement ring can be made more beautiful by a band and the reverse is also true.
Custom Ladies Marriage Bands
Not every marriage band needs to be made with white gold or platinum, and not every band must have diamonds inset. In fact, at Bert Levi Family Jewelers we’ve designed and crafted marriage bands of steel, tungsten, rose gold, black gold, and more. We can inlay the bands with lovely red rubies, deep green emeralds, and sapphires of almost every color in the rainbow.

Complement Engagement Rings
Often times, these rings are designed to complement the look of an engagement ring so that the two can either be worn together on the same finger or worn on the opposite hand.
With thousands of designs in stock and the ability to customize them to fit the particular tastes of our customers, we can help you with a ring that will not only be beautiful in and of itself but as a wonderful complement to a wedding band or engagement ring.
Anniversary Rings as Upgrades
Often, a couple’s financial situation over time improves dramatically from the point of marriage. That usually means they can afford a nicer ring and a bigger diamond.
Many couples use an anniversary as an excuse to upgrade the engagement ring to a better quality or more expensive diamond. The anniversary ring thus not only commemorates the time they’ve been together but also represents the realization of the promise their engagement first made.
