How to Choose Your Wedding Ring

Large

Every bride to be has a list of essentials that should be picked out and selected so carefully as the chance to do so might only come once in a lifetime. This list of necessities may include the wedding dress, the hairstyle, but more often than not, it places the wedding ring on top. 

Where to start? Should you go for the ring you saw on this celebrity’s wedding finger a month ago? Is the budget you set enough? Do you go for something traditional or avant-garde?

All of those tiring questions will get you nowhere if you don’t know where to begin your search. Here’s your guide to choosing the right wedding ring that perfectly fits you. 

1-Turn questions into choices

This is when you ask yourself what cut and element you want for your ring. Do you want your wedding ring to match your engagement ring? Do you and your fiance want matching bands? Do you want something big or small? 

2-Research before hunting

If you don’t know the stone cut you want and if you’re still confused regarding the color and element, put on your thinking glasses and start doing your research. The internet has it all. If you’ve already decided on the previous points, go ahead and search online for the stores that offer the type of ring you want. 

3-Try it on

We all know the feeling of wanting an item so bad, only to look hideous in it after trying it on. You can NEVER purchase your wedding ring without trying it on several times, sister. Go crazy with it, don’t say no before you see how all shapes and colors of rings look on you, take pictures, document prices, you know the drill! 

4-Set a budget

Steps 3 and 4 can be switched with one another because it’s entirely up to you whether you want to set a budget first before looking for a ring or you want to take a look first and then figure out the amount of cash you’re willing to spend on it. You do you. 

On a side note: Your wedding ring budget should be included in your overall wedding budget.

5-Be real

Some brides like to envision how they’re going to sport their marvelous rings once they’ve put them on. But the thing is, you gotta be real about this. You don’t want to get yourself a ring so fancy, you can only put on 3-4 times a year, right? Put into consideration your lifestyle,  your daily routine, and how your ring has to fit both. Do not get carried away and try not to be easily tempted. Remember, wisdom is key. 

6-Keep the vow “Till death do us part” in mind

Your wedding ring’s expiration date is the same as that of your marriage, sis. What I’m saying is, this is a ring that you’ll probably be stuck with for a LONG time, I mean, what if your marriage works? What if you have to keep that ring on for the next 30 years? Haha, I’m freaking you out. But seriously, you gotta find something that is both suitable,  practical, and charming enough for you to endure for years to come. 

7-The SIZE of the ring

Wedding rings and especially, bands are items that a woman rarely takes off, even if the rings aren’t the most comfortable. This is a very crucial point that a woman must look out for before purchasing any ring, really. In order to make sure that your ring size is perfect, avoid going for the final sizing while on your period, or during a phase that you’re eating too little or too much. This is a task that is best carried out on a normal day. That’s of course if you want to steer clear of further resizing.

8-Ring’s quality and insurance

Don’t you ever dare let yourself become so enchanted by a ring that you compromise the quality of it because if you do, you are undoubtedly going to regret it. Also, don’t forget about your wedding ring insurance. 

While applying the above steps, I want you to remember that your wedding ring isn’t merely an expensive stone attached to an expensive band, it is a symbol of the love that is shared between you and your partner, a token of appreciation. Do not turn this into a battlefield because this should be a beautiful experience that you both get to enjoy.
