A wedding ring is potentially the most significant purchase you are ever likely to make, so it is very important to make the right choice. The last thing that you want to do is to purchase a ring that your future wife will dislike - not only will it potentially spoil the moment of proposal, but it could also set the tone for the future of the relationship. Many men are uncertain about what to look for in a wedding ring, and simply rely on their fiancée to make the choice for them - but where is the romance in that?! It's easy to choose the perfect wedding ring that will delight your wife-to-be with the perfect romantic gesture.
The Colour of the Wedding Band
One of the most important things to think about, but that is often overlooked, is the colour of the wedding band. Most wedding rings are made from gold, but you do have other options such as platinum or silver, platinum and silver. Traditionally, wedding bands were always gold but nowadays the colour isn't so important. If you're wondering what colour would suit your partner or what her preference might be, an easy way to find out is to sneak a look at her current jewellery collection, particularly the pieces that she wears for special occasions. This will allow you to make an informed decision about which colour ring to choose for her.
There are a wide variety of stones to choose from and this means you can make the wedding ring even more personal to your partner. Diamonds are a girl's best friend, but there are many other stones that are suitable including emerald, ruby and sapphire. You could use accent stones in addition to a larger diamond if you prefer, especially if your fiancée has a certain colour preference.
A tip that is sure to earn you some brownie points is to find out her birthstone - these are determined by the month your partner was born in - and have this as part of her wedding band. The thought and effort this shows will be warmly received.
If all else fails you can always ask one of her friends to help you choose; after all if you go ring shopping with one of her close friends, you are almost guaranteed to pick the perfect ring.
There are so many wedding rings
to choose from that finding the perfect one can seem daunting; with just a little bit of know how however the process can be made much, much simpler!
