2020 had a tremendous impact on the wedding industry, especially as couples rescheduled weddings & receptions or scaled down celebrations & eloped. 2020 (and the pandemic in particular) has adjusted everyone's reality and priorities. This has been reflected in trends for ethically handmade, low profile gold & diamond wedding bands that can be worn singularly or in bridal sets or stacks, and some couples opting to pass on more traditional diamond engagement ring designs.
In the midst of the pandemic, we had a flurry of clients in the healthcare field requesting options for low-profile rings that had conflict-free diamonds or responsibly-sourced sapphire adornment, without the pronounced baskets that would easily tear through PPE (personal protective equipment, latex gloves in particular).
Dana Walden's line of gold & diamond "engagement bands" answered that call, providing plenty of timeless appeal without skimping on shimmering details. Generally, clients decided to swap their original engagement design for one of the band-style rings above or to wear a singular band in place of their original bridal set. (Still other clients went for ultra luxe looks by stacking these with their Dana Walden engagement rings including our Jessa Oval Solitaire and Astrid Solitaire designs).
Below, explore our most-viewed diamond & gold band-style rings at danawaldenbridal.com

Billie Diamond Tiara Band
Few silhouettes are as luxurious as the 'tiara' band, which is typically highlighted by a row of diamonds set by hand and tipped in gold. Our stunning Billie band features all of the classic tiara adornments, with the added touch of golden beadwork beneath her stately diamonds. $1900; danawaldenbridal.com/billie
Linea Baguette & Round Diamond Wedding Band
Linea features two rows of brilliant diamonds, creating the illusion of a stacked ring set that is just waiting to be paired with a DW engagement ring—or perhaps a few extra diamond bands! Clients often ask us about which our rings should be stacked to create the perfect band suite, so we created Linea to take the guesswork out of layering. This ring is gorgeous worn solo as well. $2800; danawaldenbridal.com/linea
Lucca Diamond Band
Dana and Rad designed this piece to reference one of their favorite decades in fashion - the 1930's, when the concept of 'movement' and fluidity was just as important as the inclusion of fine beading, ornamentation and gems. Lucca features a sparkling tapestry of baguettes interwoven with round brilliant diamonds. $3650; danawaldenbridal.com/lucca
