Weddings: How to Choose Wedding Ring

Apr 28, 2008
Any couple planning a wedding should remember how important their choice of wedding rings is; this is one area where the couple will not want advice from anyone else, no matter how close. Take as much the time as needed to consider which will be chosen; and is for the couple alone too choose. The location of your nearest jeweler who stocks wedding rings could be found on the Internet; you may not find the right type of jeweler from the many in your local mall.

It's true that local mall jewelers will carry a certain range of rings for this occasion; the range and quality may not be up to the standards of the specialist jeweler. The type of ring will be based on the engagement ring but must also be something that suits the man as well if it is to match.

Do not allow yourself to be swayed by a wedding ring that will, as soon as it is worn, spoil the look of the engagement ring; although you can buy them in matching sets, this is not always possible. Try on different wedding bands and sit them next to the engagement ring to see how they look together.

Metals most often used are: (1) Yellow Gold, (2) Silver, (3) Titanium and (4) White Gold; recently however, platinum has become the metal of choice because of its durability. For men, durability is a contributing factor and why platinum is so effective. Men can be harder on rings; especially those with jobs that include manual labor so be sure the rings you choose will last and look beautiful for years to come.

The next step is to have the wedding ring fingers measured; you really don't want the rings to fit poorly after all the planning that has taken place. Neither ring should be so tight that they require lubrication to put them on or take them off; just as in the same way they can be so loose they can be easily lost.

The jeweler should be given plenty of time to complete this task because there may be others he is adjusting rings for; make certain that you give plenty of time before your wedding day for both choosing and for adjustments to be made. Choosing wedding bands you will both like and that match the engagement ring may take some time; allow for this as it is not uncommon for couples to choose in haste and then regret their decision later.

Never forget why you are wearing a wedding ring and what it stands for; perhaps this is why they are used in so many cultures around the world.
