You’ve probably mused over what your engagement ring for years, and now you have the perfect ring, but how much thought have you put into the wedding ring itself? You might think it’s going to be much easier than choosing an engagement ring, but you’d be wrong. There are just as many styles of wedding ring as there are engagement rings, so you’d better put some thought into it! Our handy guide will help you choose the perfect wedding ring for you and your partner.
The budget is amongst the most important thing to think about when it comes to your wedding. You might allocate a bit more to your wedding ring than you first thought – this is a piece of jewellery that you’ll wear for the rest of your life after all.
Even if your partner is not interested in choosing anything else for the wedding, it is likely that they’ll be interested in the rings. Together, think about what you like and dislike in rings, take a look at different designs and think about how you both feel about them. You may not want to opt for matching rings, though you may want something that unifies them together, like an engraving or a certain colour stone, for instance.
The traditional metal for a wedding ring is gold. However, the most expensive gold, 24k is too soft for rings so will need to be mixed with another metal. Brides may want to match their wedding ring to their engagement ring, and therefore choosing a wedding band metal will be relatively easy. The metal you choose may be dictated by budget, however, an easy way to get around this is to get your ring in a cheaper metal, but have it dipped or coated in a more expensive metal to achieve the look you desire.
The design should be personal to you, and one that you adore. Whether you opt for a jewel encrusted band or a plain one, the design should epitomise your personality and your relationship with your partner.
Choose at Home
You don’t necessarily even have to leave your home to find the perfect ring. There are a whole plethora of wedding ring designs available on the internet, like Diamonds and Rings, for example.
Some companies even offer a home service, and they will bring a selection of rings to your home for you to take a look at.
