How To Choose A Wedding Ring

May 26, 2008
There's little doubt about it - choosing a wedding band can be one of the most fraught decisions that the prospective couple will have to make. Because neither person (that being the prospective bride and groom) wish to have the process stripped of its romance, it can quite often occur that decisions are made without an adequate level of conversation - each going along with the other not wishing to ruin the happy moment by getting down and dirty with "practicalities". Still, that's not to say that practicalities of choosing a wedding ring can't be considered. Consider this article to be a knowing guide on the matter.

You'll be able to find the location of your nearest jeweler who stocks wedding rings could on the Internet. Quality rings may take some finding but it will be worth the effort and to that end the local shopping mall is probably not the ideal place to do your ring shopping. Although you can undoubtedly buy a wedding ring at a mall jeweler; they will most likely not have the range or the quality that a specialist can provide. When choosing, look for a ring for the bride that will complement the engagement ring she is already wearing.

Wedding rings should not be excessively elaborate, or overshadow the engagement ring. A good jeweler will be able to provide a ring that has been designed to match. If this is not possible, try on as many wedding bands as you can to see how they look when positioned next to the engagement ring.

Fashions in rings come and go but the traditional metals including White Gold, Titanium, Silver and Yellow Gold tend to endure. More lately, platinum has become the ring of choice, especially for men that are looking for something more durable. Traditionally, men are more likely to cause damage to a ring; hence the need for the harder metal.

Be sure to have your wedding ring fingers measured. This is a practice best left to the professionals as you want to be confident that the rings will fit on the wedding day. Neither ring should be so tight that it requires lubrication to take it on or off; just as in the same way they should not be so loose that they easily slip off. Give your jeweler plenty of time to complete any adjustments prior to the wedding.

Wedding rings are considered a symbol of never-ending love and as such their purchase carries a lot of emotional weight. Take the time to choose a wedding band that both of you will continue to enjoy wearing.
