Wedding Rings - Buying Guide

Aug 17, 2007
A wedding ring is not just a piece of jewelry - it is a sign of your commitment and love, so choosing the right ring is very important. How would you choose wedding rings that both the groom and the bride would love and wear with pleasure? Here are some tips to selecting best wedding rings.

It is unlikely that both the bride and the groom will like the same style of rings, so it is important to find a compromise that would make both sides happy.

It might go against tradition, but shopping for a wedding ring together as a couple makes cense. This way both of you can see available styles, and find something that each likes.

What are your choices for wedding rings?

When it comes to wedding rings, choices are endless. Modern jewelers offer a great variety of materials and styles. You can get rings made of yellow or white gold, platinum, titanium or sterling silver. Each material has its advantages and disadvantages. Yellow gold is a classic wedding ring or band material. Titanium is durable, modern and fashionable, but along with platinum titanium rings are awfully expensive. Sterling silver is the cheapest, but it is not very durable, so if you plan to wear your wedding band on daily basis silver is not a good choice.

There are many styles as well - plain bands, antique and vintage wedding rings, Celtic style bands. You can get rings without any gem stones, or with jewels. Most popular of course are diamonds, you can get a single diamond ring or a diamond-encrusted band.

If you can't agree on the style that both like, consider buying not matching wedding rings. After all, everybody has different taste, and you will have to respects another person's preferences. Getting different wedding bands becomes more popular in the recent years; because this way each person can get the ring she or he likes the most.

Buying wedding rings at reasonable price

Wedding rings are not hard to find items; every jewelry shop has some to offer. Most stores have hundreds of different styles and catalogues for you to order your rings. So be prepared to go shopping for your rings in advance, so you have time for ordering the bands you like, rather than buying what is available in the store.

If you are looking to save money, department stores usually have good collections of wedding rings at reasonable prices.

More and more people buy wedding bands and rings online. The advantages are obvious - you can look at hundreds of styles, staying at home in front of your computer, no need to visit every jewelry shop in town. Another advantage of looking for wedding rings online is the prices - they are usually lower than in ordinary shops.
