Tips for choosing the perfect wedding ring

Tips for choosing the perfect wedding ring

Choosing a wedding band is not an easy task. It becomes even more daunting for men when they realize that it will stay on for the rest of their lives. Is there a way you can choose a ring that you will love for the next 40 years of your life? Is there a magic spell that will automatically make the perfect ring appear before your wedding day? How can you choose a wedding band that is perfect for your wedding day and the decades to come? Here are 5 easy tips you need to know before going out shopping for your wedding ring – 1. Mind your lifestyle – Your lifestyle will not drastically change after marriage. You need to consider your lifestyle before you choose your wedding band. For example, if you swim a lot, you might want to go for simpler designs on platinum or titanium. These metals do not corrode even in salty water. If you are particularly active throughout the day, you might want to avoid stone settings. 2. A ring to suit your personality – If you are adventurous, you might want to try out colorful inlays, dual tones and stone settings. If you are more serious, stick to the basics. Always remember, you need to choose a ring that you will willfully wear for the next 4-5 decades. If you do not know what to get, check out the simple platinum bands or titanium wedding bands with carbon fiber. 3. Pay attention to comfort – Comfort is very important since you will be wearing the ring 24x7. We will suggest you go for designs that have softer, rounded edges. Also, make sure the metal is non-reactive. Many men complain of allergy problems since they are not aware of metal sensitivity. Make sure you choose platinum or titanium only if you have sensitivity issues. Also, go for bands thinner than 7mm. any thicker, the ring will interfere with daily typing, driving and similar activities. 4. Matching wedding rings – This is a huge concern among the 21st century couples. You need to make sure that your wedding band is similar to your bride. They should share a similar theme at least. Your significant other may even need a custom curved ring to stack on top of her engagement ring. Therefore, we always recommend a joint shopping effort when it comes to wedding bands. 5. Deciding the budget – The design choice depends on all the factors mentioned above and more. You also need to think of a practical budget before you can go out shopping for your wedding bands. Setting a budget before choosing engagement rings will help you evenly spread your funds between the 4 rings. These 5 tips should make wedding ring shopping more pleasurable for you and your partner this coming wedding season. Author Bio: Bill Williams is a well-known jewelry designer. He has worked with mensweddingbands to help jewelry shoppers find the right wedding rings for their special day.
