Wedding Rings-Know the Important Details


Your wedding ring is probably the most precious piece of jewellery you will ever own. It is also something you will be wearing every day for the rest of your life so you need to make sure you will be comfortable wearing it. Choose something that is suited to your style and your personality, that is timeless and high quality as well as within your budget. The traditional plain gold band will be in style for years to come and will never date but there is many alternatives available if you prefer something more unique and individual.

It has only been during the last 50 or so years that grooms have been wearing  gold engagement rings. Traditionally it was only the bride who wore the ring as a symbol of eternity, everlasting love and commitment. Now most weddings in the UK have bride and groom exchanging rings while they exchange their vows. Some couples like their bands to be in a matching material and style but this is not essential. It is also common for brides to choose a wedding ring which matches their engagement ring. Ideally they should complement each other and go together fit wise but there are no strict rules that the materials should be the same.

Yellow Gold, White Gold or Platinum?

The materials of which wedding rings canada are made of have improved through the years. However, the most popular are still those made from classic 9ct yellow gold or 18ct yellow gold. Gold has a timeless appeal and if looked after well, a piece of gold jewellery can last you a lifetime. Wedding rings made from 9ct white gold or 18ct white gold is also gaining popularity. White gold bands are cheaper than platinum wedding rings but white gold still looks very contemporary and modern. Platinum is a very suitable material for a band as it is durable and hardwearing and therefore will endure wear and tear for a very long time. Platinum will not tarnish or discolor as it has no surface coating to wear off, this is why it is ideal for making fine jewellery such as wedding rings.

Wedding Ring Style

When it comes to style there are even more options available than there are for the choice of metals. The shape of the band itself is known as the profile and amongst the most popular are d-Shape wedding rings which have a traditional rounded look with a flat fit inside against the finger. Court bands are curved on the inside and outside for a more comfortable fit. Comfort fit or sometimes called flat court wedding rings have a contemporary flat look with a comfortable court fit on the finger. Flat emerald engagement rings are flat on the top and inside and have a more modern look. Wedding band widths generally range from about 2mm to 10mm and you have a choice of lightweight, medium and heavyweight. Your choice is completely down to personal preference and whether you want the ring to look heavy and chunky or delicate and dainty. Your ring can also be finished with a highly polished shine or with satin or matt finishes.

People used to say that the cost of the ring should be 2 months’ salary. The most important thing is to try to stay within your budget, regardless of if it's 2 months’ salary, 2 weeks’ salary, or 2 years salary. Your perfect ring has a great significance and should be worn for its meaning rather than it's monetary value. The best way to judge value for money when buying your wedding rings is to compare the weights of the material used. Buying your wedding jewellery online will allow you make great savings as online retailers don't have the huge overheads of high street shops. Have your ring size measured properly. Most high street jewellers will happily do this for you without cost. The ring you select should not fit too tightly as your hands will swell in hot weather.

Equally the ring should not be too loose that it slides round on your finger as you may end up losing it. Rings can always be stretched if need be in the future but attempting to make a ring smaller will leave the band with a join in it. Ensure that your wedding rings come with a guarantee and are covered by an initial money back guarantee in case you are not entirely satisfied with your purchase when it arrives. Finally, ensure that your ring is hallmarked.

Wedding Rings-Know How to Choose


Your diamond engagement rings are a lasting reminder of your marriage and can remind you daily of your partner. They're as important a decision as choosing your wedding dress, so take your time and do some researches before you buy them.

Traditionally, your wedding ring will match your sapphire engagement rings in color and approximate style (and could be followed some years later by an eternity ring!) but it's totally up to you what you choose. Some people wear their wedding band on a chain around their neck, or wear their engagement and wedding rings separately, so they do not necessarily have to match. Your ring does not even have to be similar to your partner's, if your tastes are very different. What is important is the symbolism they provide, so have fun choosing!

The symbolism of a black diamond engagement rings stems from the infinite nature of an unbroken circle, signifying that you will stay a couple forever. Since Roman times, wearing your wedding ring on the fourth finger is important because they believed the vena amoris, a vein in the left ring finger, connected directly to the heart. A slightly less romantic history traces back to times when weddings were primarily to connect families rather than for love, and the exchange of valuables was a symbol of security to ensure the couple would be economically sound.

Some of the classic options available in terms of the material the ring is made from include various qualities of gold, silver, platinum and titanium, or even two different tones. You may want a precious stone, diamond or other decoration included in your emerald engagement rings, or perhaps an engraving of your initials, names, date of your wedding or a special inscription made on the inside of the band.

Look online or visit some jewellers with your partner to see what is available within your budget and then find out your ring sizes by either being measured at a store or using a simple measuring tool at home (you can get these free or very cheaply online from jewellery stores). Measure first in the afternoon (since your fingers will be at their largest then due to the blood flow of your activity throughout the day) then again in the morning (when you are cool) to ensure that the size is still OK. Make sure you buy your rings at least a few months in advance of the wedding date to give you time to resize or exchange them if you're not entirely happy.

At your ceremony, your rings will be presented to you by somebody special, such as your best man or a page boy, and you might want to use a ring pillow or a special box for this purpose. Whatever you do, choose somebody trustworthy and reliable to look after your precious wedding rings on the day!

Think about insuring your wedding rings too, especially before you go away on your honeymoon. A staggering 1 in 4 newlyweds apparently lose their wedding ring within 5 years of getting married, and many manage to do so within the first few weeks while they're swimming or relaxing on their honeymoon!

Whereas most of your accessories on your wedding day will be chosen according to whether they compliment your wedding dress, your wedding ring is the one item that will definitely be worn separately after the event, so for once you can put all other wedding styles and colour-themes aside and choose something for its longevity!
