Traditional, timeless, classic, wedding rings are often simple yellow gold rings. Even if today the customs evolve, and we can find wedding rings in white gold or set with diamonds. It is still very common to buy gold rings and have them engraved inside with a first name, a date, a message. Moreover, old wedding rings, sometimes twins, are sought after because the dates inscribed inside are a testimony of history.
