When you’re getting married, the wedding bands are an important part of the wedding ceremony. After all, whether you’re in Singapore or anywhere else in the world, no wedding is complete without them since they are the symbol of your love and commitment for your partner. As such, there’s no doubt that wedding rings are an accessory you’ll be wearing for the rest of your days as a married person. Therefore, when you’re purchasing a set for your special day, it’s important that you keep a few things in mind when doing so. That way, you can ensure that you’re getting nothing but the best for yourself and your spouse.
In this post, Vella Diamonds discusses a few guidelines that you should follow when purchasing your wedding rings.
Set a Budget
Okay, let’s be realistic here: quality wedding bands aren’t exactly easy on the pockets. In fact, if you want a wedding band that’s made of a metal that’s going to last for long with little to no maintenance, you can expect it to cost up to thousands of dollars. No couple wants to go through financial difficulties when planning their wedding and as such, when you’re buying wedding rings, it’s strongly suggested that you set a realistic budget for the entire planning process, including the wedding rings. That way, you won’t have any problems when it comes to finances and you’ll have a wedding ring that you and your partner will love without breaking the bank.
Have Your Ring Sizes Ready
Unfortunately for couples who want to just go into the jewellery store and buy a set of wedding rings without any fuss, rings aren’t a one size fit all type of jewellery. When buying wedding rings, you need to have your ring finger sizes at the ready to hand it over to the jeweller. By doing so, they can immediately find a set of rings that will be appropriate for your finger sizes as well as some that have some allowance in case you want something a little looser, reducing the time you have to spend searching for wedding rings in the process.
For assistance in finding the best set of wedding rings for your wedding day, simply turn to Vella Diamonds, one of the best jewellers in Singapore.
Decide the Ring’s Material
Again, your wedding bands are something that you’ll be wearing for the rest of your married life and as such, you’ll want one that will last for a significant amount of time regardless of your daily activity and without too much maintenance. Therefore, when shopping for wedding rings, make it a point to decide on the material that they’ll be made of before you go to the jewellery store so you can tell the jeweller immediately. According to experts, the best materials that you can consider include: gold, platinum, titanium, and cobalt.
Choose a Shape
Believe it or not, whether you’re buying rings from Singapore or elsewhere, you can actually get them in different shapes, especially if you want to get one that will complement your engagement ring. Both rings will be worn side by side for all your days, after all. In the event that you decide on a shaped wedding ring over a plain circular band, experts say that you can choose rings that have delicate curves, pronounced Z-shapes, court shape, or even rectangular rings. Just be sure to consult the jeweller first to see if they have the shape that you’ve decided on, however. That way, you can find an alternative professional immediately.
Pick a Gemstone or Diamond
When we hear the term “wedding rings”, most people tend to think of a plain, circular wedding band. That was the case back then. However, nowadays, wedding rings don’t have to be plain. In fact, if you’re having yours custom made, you can have a gemstone or diamond added to the band. Of course, there are also some jewellers who sell wedding rings that already have a gem installed in them. Regardless of whether you’re having a set custom made or you’re opting to buy instead, be sure to pick what gemstone or diamond you want before you go to the jewellers to reduce the time of your search for a ring. Alternatively, different gemstones and diamonds also carry different meanings so if you want to tell your partner something without having to use so many words, you can do so by picking the appropriate stone for the wedding ring.
