Wedding ring shopping, are you? Congratulations and best wishes to you and your intended. I wish you all the best. Now, when it comes to shopping for wedding rings, I have good news and bad news. The good news is that nowadays there are literally hundreds of different styles and designs to choose from, so you’re sure to be able to find something that is just right for you. The bad news is that there are literally hundreds of different styles and designs, so it may take some time. But, let’s see what we can do to help you along in the process, shall we?
First, you both should realize that you may each have very different tastes when it comes to your own wedding rings. You each may prefer different styles, cuts, materials, or even colour. That’s okay. The important thing is that you each have the wedding ring that you want on your finger for the rest of your life.
Next, let’s address the choice of the actual band itself. Start by asking yourself what colour you want your band to be. If you’re a yellow gold fan, then that’s your answer. If you’re a white gold fan because of the colour, then you might also consider platinum or titanium. All of this will ultimately depend on the cost of each of the material types. That’s why I recommend starting with the colour, because then you at least have a starting point, and can then narrow it down by price and not compromise something that may be rather important to you.
Band design is also something you will want to consider. Do you want a solid band or do you want stones? Do you want a solid band with a design? Stones and a design? Ask to see several examples of each, and then once you’ve narrowed down on the combination you like, start to look for different rings within that category. One thing that you should always think about as well if you are considering buying the band and stone separately is the type of engagement ring’s setting.
Reve Diamonds of London a specialist for wedding rings in the UK has a website that can help with this. They’ve got everything categorised and sub-categorised, so that researching your ideal combination is as easy as point and click. At revediamonds.com you can explore rings for men and rings for women. You can customise accordingly, and find the design of your dreams.
A few other things to consider when designing your ideal wedding rings : Width. You may want a thinner rind that is less bulky, or you may want a thicker ring that is less delicate or can hold the design or stones your design calls for. Shape. Some bands these days are not the classic solid ring to which we have all become accustomed. Now they can have curves and shapes, so, again, see some examples and decide accordingly. Engraving. Engraving can add an extremely romantic touch to your magical day, but not all bands can be engraved, so if you know you’ll want engraving, then make sure you start with only bands and designs that can be engraved. It’s your wedding, after all, and we don’t want to start off with heartbreak, yes?
Take your time. Make the right decision. Most of all, try to have fun in the process! After all, when are you going to have occasion again to try on dozens of rings and stare at yourself adoringly, yes?
