The wedding ring is the most important part of a wedding for some couples. The ring is used during the ceremony and represents the love the devotion the couple share. Therefore, take your time when selecting the rings—they will hold a lifetime of memories.
1. Look online.
Once you have a general idea of what you want, go through the some internet sites to get an idea of what you want. This will help you figure out the price ranges, as well as familiarize you with some good brand names. Great tip: These days, colored stones are all the rage! Don’t limit yourself to a clear diamond!
2. Decide on matching or separate bands.
Rings should reflect the personality of the individual wearing it. For example, a free-spirited, non-traditional bride like me, wants something a bit different than the average. David Tishbi has a fabulous and affordable prices! The matching bands tend to be more on the traditional side, like the ever-popular, but pricey, Tiffany bands. Again, this is a personal choice.
3. Select a band metal.
The most popular are yellow gold, white gold and platinum. White gold is popular because it coordinates with both silver and gold and is less expensive than platinum. Yellow gold is traditional, but be sure to look into the karats. Keep in mind that the more karats, the higher the price.
4. Match the band to engagement ring.
Most brides wear their engagement ring and wedding band together. Having something to match it to will help make the decision. Visiting the same jeweler from which you purchased the engagement will make things much easier.
5. Go shopping together.
The engagement ring was the big surprise, but you should decide on wedding rings together. Taking the time to sit down and talk about your likes and dislikes, including things like engravings, can help get both spouses on the same page.
