Wedding Rings: A Man’s Guide

 Choosing the correct wedding ring for your beloved can be a very stressful task. Naturally, if there are to (hopefully) wear the ring for the rest of their life, you want it to be perfect. Of course, if you are about to be married, you will most likely have a fair idea of the style your bride-to-be prefers. But there are still other details that aren’t as obvious. Here are a few tips to help you out.

 

The Ring Size

 

This is one of the hardest aspects of buying a ring, but it is in some ways the most important. You can’t have your future wife being unable to put on the wedding ring because it is too small, or worst still, losing it because it falls off too easily. However, finding the correct ring size is easier said that done. Naturally, if you and your partner are not overly traditional, you could of course simply ask her for her ring size, though this does tend to take away some of the romance! So to maintain the surprise, sneakiness is the best option. Find a ring of hers that you know fits and take it into the jewellers in order to get the right size.

 

Traditional vs New

 

You should have a pretty good idea regarding the style of jewellery your partner likes. In general there are two main groups of wedding ring: traditional bands or more unique, modern styles. Traditional wedding bands are generally gold, ranging from a simple plain band all the way up to diamond encrusted white gold, decorated with precious stones. Modern wedding rings come in all styles and often feature unique patterns and stones. Just think of your partner’s personality and her taste, and the right choice should come to you.

 

Finding the Right Jeweller

 

There are countless jewellers both on the high street and online. Though you will get a much better deal from an online store such as Diamonds and Rings, you shouldn’t let money be a factor here. Just look through as many rings as you like until you find the one that jumps out at you.

 

Trust Your Instinct

 

Buying a wedding ring is indeed stressful. But don’t let this cloud your judgement. If you are making a lifetime commitment to your partner, you obviously know each other well. So trust your instincts when looking for the perfect wedding ring.
