Between considering different band styles to picking out the perfect diamond cut to deciding on the color or the precious metal, there are just so many options to consider. To help you find your perfect wedding ring, we’ve put together a list of some of the best tips and tricks to get you started.
START LOOKING AT RINGS EARLY
One of the most important tips we can offer any bride or couple is that you need to start looking at rings as early as possible. The more time that you allow for yourself to browse different styles, the less stressed you will feel overall about the process and decision. By giving yourself ample breathing room to take everything into consideration, you’ll feel more confident about your choices and happier with the result.
DECIDE WHAT YOU WANT OUT OF YOUR RING
When searching for your wedding rings, it’s important to decide what you really want out of the piece. Is there a particular type of stone that you would prefer other than a diamond? A type of diamond cut that you like? Now’s the time to list everything out for future reference while you are shopping.
Here are a few important aspects of wedding rings to consider:
- The type of stone (diamond or otherwise)
- The cut of the diamond (if chosen)
- The style of band (simple, intricate, etc.)
- The type of precious metal (gold, platinum, silver)
CONSIDER YOUR BUDGET
Another important consideration is definitely your budget. Discuss this with your partner and decide how much you would be willing to spend on each wedding ring. Make sure that you agree on this budget before you begin shopping. After all, it would be a shame to fall in love with a wedding ring that falls outside of what you can afford!
THINK ABOUT YOUR LIFESTYLE
When choosing an accessory that you’ll wear day-in and day-out, such as a wedding ring, it’s important to think about your daily lifestyle. Will a large stone get in the way of your daily baking? Will a halo setting with intricate small diamonds leave you feeling anxious when you go through your daily HIIT workout? Think about what you do on a daily basis and if or how a particular type or style of wedding ring will affect it.
CONSULT YOUR PARTNER
Whether or not you are both looking at wedding rings together or searching for matching options, discussing options with your partner is a great way to help narrow down your choices. They can help you find a piece that will truly match what you are looking for and, at the very least, serve as a measure of support if you start to feel overwhelmed or frustrated.
TRY THEM ON
One of the easiest ways to help narrow down your wedding ring options is to simply try them on! This way, you can get an authentic look and feel for each ring and decide whether or not it’s actually what you want. You can also try on additional styles or aesthetics that you may not have considered before - who knows, you may fall in love with something entirely different!
ASK FOR EXPERT ADVICE
If you’re still feeling stuck in your search for the perfect wedding rings, you can always ask for help. Whether it’s approaching a family member or close friend who has recently gone through the experience of finding their wedding ring or meeting with a fine jewelry expert to weigh options, getting expert advice is a great way to help point you in the right direction.
