All over the world, married couples wear wedding rings as a symbol of their commitment to each other. They are often worn by both parties in a marriage for many years, therefore it’s quite important that they suit the recipient’s taste well so that they love and cherish it for as long as they are married. Here are some things to consider when choosing a wedding ring:
1. Your budget
The most efficient way to set a budget for the wedding rings is to incorporate the cost of the rings into the budget for the wedding itself. That way you know exactly how much you will need for the rings, you will have them in time for the wedding and there will be no shocks after the wedding. As a general rule you should spend a bit more on a wedding ring than you do on your regular jewellery seeing as you are intending on wearing it forever.
2. Shop wedding rings together
Some wedding plans are not made as a couple, but choosing the wedding rings should definitely be done together. You should dedicate a couple of weekends to search numerous jewellers and find the perfect ring for each of you before making a decision. Doing so will ensure that you’ve seen all of the possible designs and styles and that you’ve both picked a wedding ring that you will wear forever.
3. Make sure it’s comfortable
Comfort is equally as important as style when it comes to wedding rings, so ensure you choose one that you are comfortable wearing for long periods of time. Even couples who remove their wedding rings at night still wear them for up to 12 hours a day – this is a very long time and if your wedding ring isn’t comfortable you may end up removing it often which could upset your spouse.
