A Guide For Men To Buying The Perfect Wedding Ring

May 24, 2008
Jewellery, make-up, fashion, clothing, shoes and hairstyles are all the things that most girls like to adorn themselves and smother their lives with - unfortunately, this is a small price for some men to withstand when they have to sit in the waiting area watching their girlfriend or wife try on dresses after dresses and respond with their opinions. What is most annoying is that after a while the torture period turns into a long-winded day of exhaustion and boredom.

So when the time comes to going for engagement and wedding rings you then begin to wonder why it was ever so important for you to go shopping with them, and spend all day deciding upon what will and will not look good on them. Even if everything did seem laborious and longwinded, it is after all a way for your other half to please you with the way they look! This was a subtle training session for you to pick the right ring for them, as you should have been paying attention to the specific taste and style.

However, admittedly, shopping for wedding rings is a difficult thing to do, as not only are you trying to find the right ring that will say 'I love you forever, will you marry me?', but you are also looking for something that will make your other half feel like that they want to wear this. Fashion is an important element in all women and men's lives, whether they admit to it or not. It is a way of defining ones personal taste, and people can really tell what kind of person you are judging by the way you dress.

As much as some people may disagree to a certain extent there is some truth to this statement and therefore it makes it that much more imperative for you to start paying attention! Wedding rings are ideally a gift for life and must symbolise that special day where you have made the coveted decision of spending the rest of your life together.

Therefore, there are some basic principles to remember when selecting the right wedding ring. Unlike an engagement ring, this is going to be a timeless design that will displayed on the hand of your other half on the actual wedding day. Think of it like this, are they likely to get bored of it in twenty years time or they going to look down upon with pride and satisfaction. Not to mention, this also has to compliment the initial engagement ring.

The things to look for in engagement or wedding rings is not necessarily its price tag but the kind of metal you will be choosing, for example, gold, platinum, silver or white gold? This all depends upon what will suit the other half, some metals do not suit all skin types and colours so you may need to have a look through her existing jewellery collection and make a note of her preferences.

The next thing is of course the ring size. It would help if your girlfriend were a bit of a jewellery fanatic, then you could take one of her own rings and use that as a basis for sizing the ring. However, sometimes taking your girlfriend along is not an option so you can try to get the size from her (either measuring the finger or getting an idea of the sizing). You may need to go back and forth to have this resized, but you will need to do this much earlier in advance and not the day before the wedding!

The final things to remember with wedding rings are the design and quality. Just because you are buying something timeless, this does not mean you should buy something plain and simple.
