how to choose a wedding ring

As soon as you get engaged, you seem to be swept into a world of wedding planning with a long to-do list which includes choosing your wedding bands. But, with so many different styles to choose from, finding the perfect ring can be a little scary. Here are a few things to consider when choosing a ring that should make the process a bit less daunting.


quick and easy tips for choosing a weddingring


1.Start Looking Early

It is never a good idea to wait until just before the wedding to pick out your wedding rings. Rather, start shopping for bands early so that you will have enough time to find what you like. Also, shopping early allows you to save up enough to afford the ring of your dreams, have it sized, and, if you want to, have it engraved.

2. Set a Budget

When you start planning your wedding expenses, try to think about how much to set aside for the wedding rings. Bands can vary widely from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. Determining how much you are willing to, and can afford to, spend before you start shopping will make it easier for you to narrow down the options.

3. Know Your Metals

Would you like a yellow gold band, white gold, platinum, or even mixed metals? Even men’s bands have loads of options, including cobalt, titanium, and men’s platinum wedding rings. Take into account your lifestyle, preferences, and how rough you may or may not be with your hands when it comes to choosing a metal.

4. Diamond Wedding Rings

Once you’ve picked out the wedding ring, you’ll want to consider including a diamond or another kind of gemstone. Diamond-set rings have become increasingly popular and are usually more common on women’s wedding rings as they provide a shiny backdrop for the engagement ring. But, even grooms can have diamond wedding rings. Typically, diamonds in wedding rings are princess cut or diamond cut, but there are still loads of other options available. This is also something you will want to take into consideration when setting your wedding ring budget.

5. Should You and Your Fiancé Coordinate?

If you would love for your wedding band to perfectly complement your fiancé’s wedding band, you should talk to the jeweller about getting a matching set. On the other hand, if he has his heart set on a black titanium band and you really want a rose gold ring, that’s also fine. Just be sure to discuss different options to ensure you both find the wedding rings you love.

6. Think Ahead

When it comes to shopping for wedding bands, a rather fashionable option may well catch your eye. Newer styles are fantastic for some people, but consider if you would be better off picking a more classic band if you tend to change your style and taste regularly.

7. Know About Warranties

It is very important to know what type of warranty you will get with your purchase. Find out if the jeweller offers free resizing or cleaning. Will the ring be covered if the diamonds fall out of the band?


Those are tips on how to choose the right wedding rings. Be sure to ask the jeweller everything you want to know so that you can rest assured your investment would be worth it.
