Common Types of Wedding Rings
Before choosing a ring, you’ll first need to know the type of rings available in the market now. As wedding rings define the public profession of your marriage, be sure to compare and pick the one that best suits your personality and interests.
Let’s take a look at the most common types of wedding rings:
- Bands: Band rings simple rings that shows your marital status. Usually uniform in width, they are often customized with engravings of meaningful letters or dates. They’re the best fit for couples looking for a more minimal design.
- Diamond Ring (for the bride): Diamond rings are a classic choice for wedding rings. Compared to other natural stones, diamonds often appear clearer and more sparkly. Though conventional, they continue to be a popular ring of choice as they easily represent the idea of everlasting love. If you prefer a modern twist to diamond rings, go for a princess cut or a cushion cut instead of round diamond rings.
- Sapphire Ring: Sapphire rings have higher levels of mineral hardness, making them more durable and popular compared to other gemstones like emeralds or rubies. The classic blue beauty of Sapphire rings make them perfect for couples looking for something enduring, valuable and unique.
Birthstone Ring: As suggested by its namesake, birthstone rings are gemstone rings associated with the specific individual’s birth month. Compared to diamond rings, birthstone rings are customizable and bring personal meaning to the wearer.
- Bridal Set: A bridal set is a ring set with both a wedding band and engagement ring stacked together. They are usually worn by the bride on her left ring finger as a way of keeping both rings instead of replacing the engagement ring with a wedding ring.
- Cluster Ring (for the bride): Cluster rings feature multiple diamonds and gemstones of different measurements. They have a more sophisticated design and fit the bride who enjoys a touch of colour to their glitter.
Hopefully, this guide has given you some ideas on choosing the right ring for yourselves.
Steps to Pick the Right Wedding Ring
1) Set a Budget
The first step in buying a wedding ring is to begin with your budget. As a rule of thumb, shop with the assumption you’ll spend at least 3 percent of your entire wedding budget on your wedding rings.
As personalisations on wedding rings add extra costs to any wedding ring, remember to add in the cost of personalisation before setting your budget. This will keep your budget realistic.
2) Choose a timeless design
The best wedding ring is something you can wear on a daily basis. Unlike engagement rings, you’ll most likely be wearing your wedding rings for much longer. As such, you’ll want something that doesn’t go out of style as trends come and go.
3) Be practical
In the heat of the moment, you might want to go for something special and fancy. But don’t forget: you’ll be wearing your wedding ring daily. So choose a practical band that is comfortable enough to be worn everyday.
Emeralds, for example, can be too fragile to be worn on a daily basis. So if you want to keep your wedding ring on your finger on a daily basis, this might not be the best choice. Other than that, it is also best to steer clear from pave diamonds as the stones fall out over time.
4) Get the comfort fit
When possible, choose the comfort fit for your rings. Comfort fit rings are shaped in a half-round design and tends to fit more loosely than standard rings of similar sizes.
They are also a lot easier to put on compared with normal rings as it has more space around the band. When worn, you won’t even hurt your finger even if you always keep it on.
