Choosing The Perfect Wedding Rings

Choosing your wedding rings is fun and exciting but can also be quite daunting. We have listed below a few tips to make your journey into buying your wedding rings a little easier.

Set A Budget

When setting a budget for your wedding, ensure that you include the cost of your wedding rings. You will be wearing these rings for the rest of your life, so spending a little more if you can afford to can make a big difference in the quality of rings you choose. If you are thinking of getting your rings engraved, then incorporate this into your budget too.

Choose The Right Size

When buying your wedding ring, make sure you buy the right size. You will be wearing your ring every day and overtime our fingers can swell from the weather change, exercise or pregnancy, ensure your ring has a little breathing room but is not too loose that it falls off. Have your finger professionally measured on a day when your body temperature is normal.

Narrow Down What Metal You Want

It is common to choose a metal that compliments the engagement ring. Choose from metals such as gold, silver, platinum, rose gold, white gold and titanium. Metals can vary in weight so ensure you try on a few different variations of metals to see what feels right to you both.

Buy Your Rings Together

Think about choosing your wedding rings together, this way you can buy rings that complement each other. Wedding rings don't have to be fancy, a simple understated band is just what you need. Remember, the engagement ring usually has a gem and stands out, having a simple band next to it will make your hand look less busy.

Consider The Maintenance

Depending on what metal you get can determine how you clean your rings. For a low-maintenance ring, choose a gold or platinum ring, all you have to do is rub it with a lint-free cloth. For other metals, you will need to soak it in water and gently brush with a small soft brush such as a toothbrush or eyebrow brush. Be careful when you are cleaning your ring as brushing too aggressively can make stones come loose.

Choose Style and Comfort

When choosing a ring, you want it to look the part and be comfortable. Try to stay away from current trends and choose a ring that will be timeless and suit your style throughout the years. Think about styles such as braided rings or a diamond eternity band. Talk to a jeweler about your preferences and see what options they come up with if you are getting diamonds, ask them about vvs diamonds info.

Don't Leave It Too Late 

Trying on rings is the fun part, but don't leave it too late to start looking. Give yourselves three months before your wedding to start browsing. You will also need to keep in mind if you are having a custom ring made or getting it engraved as this can take a little longer, so speak to your jeweler to see timeframes.
