Wedding Band Shopping: How To Buy The Right One?June 28 2016, 0 Comments

While you may love to wear your expensive wedding ring, keep in mind that it will bear the brunt of your active lifestyle.

Wedding bands are supposed to be a symbol of your marriage – it’s something you carry with you every day.  

So it’s obvious that the decision to buy said band is one that needs your full concentration and a few nifty tips from Solitaire Jewelers.

Choosing a Wedding Band with 6 Easy Tips

1.      Understanding Metal

Firstly, there are more than 10 types of metals you can choose from, the most popular of which is yellow gold. As a traditional choice, yellow gold comes in 4 shades, so you can choose a softer gold if you’re not one for stronger metals.

However, you may also choose a white gold ring if you have a platinum and diamond engagement ring.

Another option is platinum wedding band. Tough and durable, platinum is a rare metal that does not change in shape, color or form throughout the years. However, it is more expensive than your average gold ring.

2.      Compare Your Ring and Band

You don’t want a band that will contrast or clash with your gorgeous princess diamond engagement ring.

Buy a design that will best complement the ring without seeming too plain or overbearing. Although, if you are choosing to wear your wedding band alone, don’t go for the simple option. Instead, ask your jeweler to find a band in an intricate style.

3.      Keep Your Lifestyle in Mind

There will be no point buying an expensive, intricate wedding band if you don’t even feel comfortable wearing it often.

Remember; the point of a wedding band is that you will be able to wear it for long periods of time. So let’s say, you play sports or handle instruments; choose a comfort fit ring that is slimmer and therefore, much easier and durable for your lifestyle.

4.      Think Long-Term

Are you buying a style that you will still like 20 years from now?

Although it’s okay to be trendy, choosing a ring that is fashionable now can become annoying later. Consider the time you will spend wearing that ring. You will be going to work, school meetings, social gatherings and family parties. As such, you will need a ring that you can picture yourself wearing a long time from now.

In this case, it is best to go with a ring you can make upgrades to, such as add diamonds or other gemstones. Furthermore, go with a white gold or platinum option so that it doesn’t lose its shine either.

5.      Get the Right Size

It’s very rare for people to take off their wedding bands. So you might need to get it sized at such a time when all conditions work for you.

NEVER finalize your wedding size in the morning or after you workout though, since your temperature at the time is mostly up, and your muscles are swollen as well.
