What is a Russian Wedding bangle?

A Russian Wedding Bangle is a single bangle that’s made up of three intertwined metal bands. As the three separate bangles are effortlessly bound together, they appear as one bangle and move as one. The bands are typically made of yellow, white, and rose gold and are plain and thin to show off the metal colours.

Russian Wedding Bangles can be traced back to 19th century Russia. The name refers to the design and both the ring and the bangles became popular wedding jewellery for brides and bridesmaids before the rest of the world fell in love with the design too. The main attraction and indication of a Russian Wedding bangle is the three colours which are full of symbolism and connect deeply to its wearer and their relationship with who gave them the bangle.

What do Russian Wedding rings & bangles mean?

Russian Wedding rings and bangles can have multiple meanings so whether you’re giving one to someone as a present or treating yourself, you can choose the meaning that most resonates with you.

The different colours are imbued with meaning and each metal colour represents something different. Yellow gold symbolises fidelity, white gold represents friendship and rose gold means love. When joined together in the Russian Wedding bangle design, it stands as a symbol of eternal love, making it the perfect bangle to give to your other half. In addition to the three coloured bangles, you can find Russian Wedding bangles in one colour, like three bands of yellow gold, three of white gold or three of rose gold.

Other than the metal colours, Russian Wedding bangles have a lot of meaning due to the three-band design. Meanings include past, present, and future or then, now, and forever or love, loyalty, and friendship which can all be used to show your significant other how much you love them. Alternatively, the three bands can also represent father, mother, and child for those starting a family, and Father, Son and Holy Spirit and mind, body, and spirit as a connection to your religion.

When should I wear or give a Russian Wedding bangle?

Due to the powerful meanings behind Russian Wedding rings and bangles, they should be given for a special occasion or big celebration. As they’re made of quality materials, Russian Wedding bangles will also be priced a little higher than other bangles.

Russian Wedding bangles make powerful birthday gifts, but they’re most commonly given as anniversary presents, for weddings or as a promise for a future engagement. As they’re most associated with love and relationships, we’d suggest giving Russian Wedding bangles and rings to your partner to signify the continued commitment to your relationship.

As gold is incredibly high quality, a Russian Wedding bangle won’t tarnish as quickly as other bracelets will. If you want to, you can wear your Russian bangle everyday to add a pop of colour to your outfit or save it for special occasions to preserve the sparkle. Russian bangles would also make a beautiful accessory on your wedding day, whether you wear them as you walk down the aisle or splash out for your bridesmaid’s jewellery.
