Coun­try songstress Tammy Wynette once crooned that only love can make a golden wed­ding ring — but in 2018, it’s not just gold that cou­ples can find in their wed­ding rings.

Rose gold re­turns as a me­tal­lic trend this year, es­pe­cially in fem­i­nine rings, and mas­cu­line and gen­der-neu­tral rings fea­ture deeper col­ors. For cou­ples look­ing to find the per­fect bands to place on each oth­ers’ fin­gers dur­ing the wed­ding cer­e­mony, Har­ris Bot­nick of Worth­more Jewel­ers of­fered up a few ideas. READ WIL­SON $1,895 to $4,995

Th­ese gen­der-neu­tral rings come in a num­ber of widths and in­lay op­tions. This par­tic­u­lar ring (above left) is made from old-world, hand-en­graved ti­ta­nium that is $889

For trendy, fem­i­nine part­ners, this Alp The Jew­eler piece (above cen­ter) is a top choice from Worth­more. Bot­nick said Alp’s Turk­ish her­itage in­flu­ences all of his designs, in­clud­ing this 18-karat piece that uses an age-old tech­nique called grau­la­tion. It’s also avail­able in yel­low and white gold. $998 to $5,979

Me­tal­smith Chris Ploof will bring his wares to the Mid­town lo­ca­tion of Worth­more on April 14, and the De­catur store on April 15. Ploof used the Ja­panese art of Mokume Gane, which pro­duces a dis­tinc­tive lay­ered pat­tern sim­i­lar to wood grain, to achieve the ef­fects in this col­lec­tion. For this par­tic­u­lar ring (above right), he also added part of the Gibeon me­te­orite — which fell in pre­his­toric times in Namibia — into the pat­tern.
