Your wedding ring is undoubtedly one of the most important pieces of jewellery that you will choose in your life! It is the symbol of your love and your commitment to each other. Thus it must be perfect. Here are our top five wedding rings tips that will help you make the right choice.
Tip 1: Choosing the right precious metal
If at all possible, choose the same metal for your wedding ring as your engagement ring. Look is not the only reason for this advice. More importantly it’s about the wearing and the ageing of the rings. As you wear them together, the rings will brush against each other. When both rings have the same metal density, the wearing on each of the rings will be the same.
Tip 2: The perfect wedding ring width
The width of the wedding ring is obviously a matter of individual preference. Based on our experience, we recommend a wedding ring of the same width or slightly slimmer than the width of the engagement ring. Thinking a bit ahead, this tip will ensure that you have sufficient space for a future eternity ring.
Tip 3: Diamonds or No diamonds
It is not often that women shy away from diamond sparkle. Diamond set wedding rings are a very popular choice. However, we all have a budget to stick to. Choosing a plain wedding ring is one way to keep costs down. You can always decide to have your wedding band set with diamonds a few years down the line in celebration of a special occasion in your life.
Tip 4: Personalise your wedding ring
Engraving is a great way of putting a personal touch to your wedding rings. The engraving message is usually inscribed on the inside of the ring. It often carries special importance and meaning to the married couple. Many couples choose to engrave their wedding ring with the name of their partner and the wedding date.
Tip 5: Wearing your wedding ring
The wedding ring is worn on the fourth finger of the left hand. It sits behind the engagement ring. In Latin, the fourth finger is descriptively referred to as the vein of love. This is because of its direct connection to the heart. Hence it is the most appropriate finger for a band that symbolizes the love between a couple.
