The Secrets to Purchasing Diamond Wedding Rings

Jan 15, 2008
Any woman would no doubt swoon at the idea of getting a diamond wedding ring - or a diamond anything for that matter! If you're a man trying to choose just the right ring for your fiance or for your wife, then you've come to the right spot. We can give you some tips and pointers from the insiders - meaning real women - on how to select the perfect diamond wedding ring for your significant other.

First off, keep in mind that there are really three different types of diamond wedding rings. There is a diamond wedding band, which is meant to be worn with an engagement ring and is presented during the wedding ceremony. Then there are anniversary bands, which usually have a number of diamonds to represent the year of the anniversary, or one diamond in the center and then gemstones for each of the children, or some other such design. And lastly there are eternity bands, which are really diamond wedding rings that are either worn as a wedding band with or without an engagement ring, or are meant as an anniversary present. Eternity bands have diamonds going all the way around them - in a never ending circle, just like eternity. Get it?

Which Diamond Wedding Ring is Right For Your Special Lady?

Of course there's no easy answer to that question, and chances are that your wife or fiance will be happy with whatever ring you choose. But here are some things you can keep in mind. For one, many professional career women like a diamond wedding ring that they can wear without their engagement ring during work hours, especially if the diamond in the engagement ring is quite large. An eternity band can look very lovely in this case, as it is beautiful enough to wear on its own. Also, if you are selecting a diamond wedding ring that will be worn with the engagement ring, you want to be sure that the two will look good together. In this case, it may be a good idea to choose a wedding set rather than selecting two separate rings, or to ask a jeweler for help in deciding on bands that complement one another.

If you're looking for a diamond wedding ring as an anniversary gift, put some thought into the design and the stones, and especially for the anniversary year. Obviously a ring for your 25 year anniversary may be a bit more significant than the gift you got her for your third anniversary. Many diamond wedding rings that are presented as anniversary gifts have not just diamonds but gemstones to represent the number of children you have. So, if you have three children, you may find a band with three rubies and two diamonds in between them. Or if it's your five year anniversary, get a diamond wedding ring with five small diamonds across.

The real key to selecting the right diamond wedding ring is to put some thought into it, and try to select something that you know she'll love and will be proud to wear forever.
