Selecting Your Ideal Wedding Ring
The special day of your life is nearly here. Every detail matters, and the most important one is your wedding ring. Throughout history and up to modern day, wedding rings were considered a symbol of loyalty, love and faithfulness. Although most discussions center around engagement rings, it is the wedding rings that will be worn for the rest of your life as a symbol of marriage. Usually, it is a piece of jewelry that is chosen and purchased together by the couple. It might be a long process, but we are here to make it easier for you!
Start your ring search early! Once you have a vision of the ideal ring, it is time to start trying them on. We advise to give yourself at least two to three months to find “the one”. Browse, research prices, have try outs and you will set your heart on one.
The choice is endless and it easy to get excited about too many rings at once! Based on your findings and inspiration, set a budget, this will narrow down the list immediately. To fit the rings into the budget, you can experiment with different metals and styles. For instance, for a limited budget it would be better to select a half eternity ring rather than a full eternity ring. Another option would be to choose white gold instead of platinum, as it is more affordable. Moreover, big brand names and designer jewelry will have a notable price difference, which in terms of looks and quality may have no difference with even customized designs.
What kind of a lifestyle do you have? As a wedding ring is a piece that will be worn on a daily basis, considering the lifestyle it should last a lifetime. If you are very active or have your hands exposed to chemicals, think about the type of metal and style you will choose. Think of the maintenance that might come in the future, as you want to reduce the chances of scratches or any deformations.
Try something different! If your imagination goes beyond the usual, make use of it. Speak to jewelers to suggest the optimal versions. After all, it is a once in a lifetime event.
