Essential tips for purchasing wedding rings

Your wed­ding ring is a last­ing sym­bol of your spe­cial day so it’s vital to choose a style you adore and one that aligns with your lifestyle. This deci­sion involves sev­er­al con­sid­er­a­tions. Here’s a com­pre­hen­sive guide cov­er­ing every­thing you need to know when buy­ing your wed­ding rings.

Select­ing the Right Size and Ensur­ing Comfort

Start by get­ting your fin­ger pro­fes­sion­al­ly mea­sured, espe­cial­ly if you’re not used to wear­ing jew­ellery. Keep in mind that your fin­ger size may change, so con­sid­er this when choos­ing the ide­al fit. A ring that’s too tight can be uncom­fort­able for all-day wear, while a loose one might feel inse­cure. Rings with a slight inter­nal curve, rather than a flat sur­face, can enhance com­fort by reduc­ing con­tact with the skin.

Choos­ing the Suit­able Metal

If you have an engage­ment ring, opt for the same met­al to avoid excess wear. For stand­alone wear, choose the met­al that suits your taste. 

  • Plat­inum is the hard­est-wear­ing, heav­i­est and the purest pre­cious white met­al. Pal­la­di­um is a great cost-effec­tive alter­na­tive if plat­inum seems too much for your budget.
  • If you are con­sid­er­ing a gold ring then 18ct gold is the prefer­able option when con­sid­ered against 9ct gold. 

  • White gold has a slight­ly yel­low hue, with most pieces of white gold jew­ellery plat­ed with rhodi­um as a sur­face fin­ish to give a bright white pol­ished finish.

  • Tita­ni­um is a great choice if you don’t like wear­ing jew­ellery. It’s very light­weight and can incor­po­rate more pre­cious met­als while main­tain­ing affordability.

Ensur­ing Com­pat­i­bil­i­ty with Your Engage­ment Ring

In addi­tion to match­ing met­als, aim to coor­di­nate the depth of your wed­ding ring with your engage­ment ring to avoid notice­able dif­fer­ences or steps. Keep the pro­file or shape of the wed­ding ring as sim­i­lar as pos­si­ble to the engage­ment ring for a har­mo­nious look when worn together.

Con­sid­er Your Wed­ding Timeline

Most peo­ple start shop­ping for wed­ding rings about 2 – 3 months before the wed­ding. Stan­dard rings made to order typ­i­cal­ly take 3 – 5 weeks. Bespoke rings, designed to your spec­i­fi­ca­tions, may take 4 – 8 weeks after final­iz­ing the design. Always try on your rings upon col­lec­tion to ensure a per­fect fit on your big day.

Will Your Ring Suit Your Lifestyle?

Final­ly, think about your occu­pa­tion and lifestyle. If you lead an active life that’s tough on jew­ellery, lighter-weight ring pro­files may not be the best choice, as they are less durable and prone to bend­ing over time.
