The circle of a wedding band signifies eternity. Just like a circle does not have a beginning or an end, a wedding ring is presented to express that the relation will last forever. The ring is worn on the fourth finger because it is believed that the vein directly leads to the heart. “Love is infinite; so will be your marriage”.

The tradition of picking matching wedding rings and bands has evolved into a personalized approach, i.e. people are choosing personalized rings and bands for their partners. Engravings, designs and even the material of the ring can be carefully selected for the person, who will be wearing it. E.g. a sailor should be given a ring which has an anchor or a ship engraved on it, and the ring can be made from the steel of a famous ship that he loves. Similarly, a Damascus steel ring can be offered to a person who enjoys hunting.

Now you know how you can go about buying a wedding ring for your love. Read ahead to know the typical steps that will help you take the right decision.

  1. What does your better-half like? What are his/her hobbies? What are they passionate about? You are supposed to know the answers to all these questions, and accordingly, you should think about the type of ring or band that they will like.
  2. A gemstone or valuable metal? Do you know your jewelry? Are you looking for a gemstone or a valuable metal as the appealing element of your wedding ring or band?

The options that you have for gemstones are as follows:

  • Garnet
  • Turquoise
  • Opal
  • Peridot
  • Emerald
  • Aquamarine
  • Diamond (the most preferred one in this list)

The options that you have for valuable metals are as follows:

  • Yellow Gold
  • White Gold
  • Rose Gold
  • Palladium
  • Wood
  • Sterling Silver

Depending on the desires of your better-half and your budget, you can choose any of the elements mentioned above. There are several others, which are less common due to the availability in particular areas.

What type of design are you looking for? The design is the second most essential factor because the appearance of the ring or band matters a bunch as well. There are several types of engravings that you can go for, such as:

  • Scriptures
  • Hilarious quotes
  • Initials
  • Wedding date
  • Meaningful phrases
  • Literary excerpts
  • Fingerprints

All the options mentioned above have made it more fascinating, right? You should find a proper design for the wedding ring/band to make sure that your partner falls in love with you all over again. No matter how simple or extravagant it is, it will be perfect. Make it more special and meaningful than it already is!

Ring size, carats, and budget

Do you know his/her ring size? How many carats are you planning to put on the ring? These may be the two most confusing concerns that may arise because the correct ring size is essential to ensure perfection and ‘the bigger, the better’ isn’t always true when wedding rings and bands are considered. The number of carats also depends on your budget because you still have to consider the expenses that will arise in the wedding preps. It is advisable to set a fixed budget and try to stay within your comfortable boundaries to make sure that you two enjoy each and every moment of your wedding and reception. Going overboard with the budget of the ring might hamper the budget of wedding decor or cake. Estimate it right!

The right store

Do you have a credible jewelry store nearby or are you planning to buy the wedding rings/bands online? Due to the high demand, there are several stores which sell real-looking knock-offs at desirable rates. So, you must be careful before buying it. It is advisable to check the background of the store in your neighborhood or ask for recommendations from your family and friends to ensure satisfaction and genuine products.

May you find the right ring for your partner, have an amazing wedding day, and married life! All the best!
