I thought a wedding ring is different from a wedding band before, but someone tells me I'm wrong.

    They're the same thing. There's no real difference between wedding rings and wedding bands. Just check diamond or wedding ring brands. They call them bands or rings.

    They are both wedding rings.  But I usually think of a band as specifically being only metal and without gemstones/diamonds.

    However, that might just be my perception of the words.  It's not something I've read or given much thought to.

    I'm guessing it is called a band because it binds the couple in matrimony.

    According to my point of view, wedding rings have creativity in them while the wedding band is a simple plain band of a single metal that is been accompanied by an engagement ring. Wedding bands are the most popular among couples for their simplistic beauty and charm!

    Before moving, know why a wedding ring is also called a band. Then you have to understand the difference between them.

    The wedding rings define a distinctive appearance that reflects a strong commitment. As a result, a bride wants to offer great value to his bride in selecting the wedding rings.

    While a wedding band shows simplicity and equality in a love relationship. The wedding band is made by adding a metal tone and maybe some small sized gemstones or diamonds.

    Couples started to call a wedding band instead of a ring because the intention behind offering it remained the same. That's why they called a wedding ring a wedding band.
