We at the Jewellery School were really interested in the story about actress Mila Kunis choosing an ultra thin wedding band. But the wedding was last July so why is this news? Well, she spoke about her wedding ring choice on the Conan O’Brien show a few days ago and admitted that she bought the wedding rings for herself and her now husband Ashton Kutcher on Etsy for $190 altogether (about £150).

This story was great for two reasons. Firstly, she stated on the programme that she looked at wedding bands from Tiffany and Co and that they were ‘astronomical’ and so she looked for a handmade alternative. Those of us who sell on Etsy and other sites like it will be encouraged by this and the extra publicity this story provides.

It also highlighted the trend for ultra thin wedding bands. Kunis’ ring is a very fine platinum band. Gold and platinum are very expensive at the moment and the trend for the ultra thin ring is an interesting way to have a traditional band of gold wedding ring without breaking the bank.

Here are some more examples following this trend…
