Buy Both Wedding Rings and Bands at the Same Time

Consider how the wedding rings fit together as a pair.  If you're intending on wearing your engagement and wedding ring permanently, never taking them off, then look for a shape or shadow band designed that specifically interlocks with the matching engagement ring.  If you're planning on wearing your wedding ring alone, you may desire a more complex design that will look great as a stand alone with or without your engagement ring.  Ask your jeweler about helping find the very best wedding rings that works for both of you as a couple.

Start Searching for Your Wedding Ring Early

As soon as you have a good idea of the exact wedding rings you'd both like, it's time for the exciting part, checking them out at your local jewelry store.  Give yourselves a few months before your wedding date for wedding ring browsing.  You'll require this much time to check out all your options, research costs and revisit the wedding rings that catch both your eye’s.  If you have your heart set on a custom wedding ring, you'll probably need even more time to have it designed and delivered.  Remember all the extras, like special engravings will take longer than usual.

Buy the Wedding Rings that You Both Will Love

Do not worry if you like platinum and your partner likes 14ct. gold. There are no guidelines that says you have to select the very same metals and or even the same wedding ring styles.  You may want to compromise with braided bands that blend the both the gold and platinum together or you both can be completely different in design and look of your wedding rings.

Stick to Your Budget

Assume that you'll spend about 3 to 4 percent of your total wedding budget on your wedding rings.  Depending on the jewler, a standard 14-karat gold or basic platinum band should cost around $1,000.  Diamonds or engravings, will quickly add to the cost, so factor that into your wedding budget.  The cost of engraving your wedding rings are usually based on the number of fonts used and whether it's inscribed by hand which is much more expensive or a machine.

Your Lifestyle, Your Marriage

Keep this in mind, you're going to wear your wedding rings every day, so the goal is to choose a wedding ring that is seamless and fits your lifestyle. If you play sports or an instrument, a slimmer wedding ring with rounded edges may work best for you.  If you work with your hands consider a more simple but stronger metal wedding ring to prevent gemstones that can come loose. If you live a really active life you should consider choosing platinum, which is extremely resilient.

Thinking Long Term

While you shouldn't be afraid of looking trendy, make sure the wedding ring you pick is something you'll wish to use for the next 50 years.  You're not married to the wedding ring and you can always purchase or design a second ring to rotate during the week.

Sound likes a hassle?  Your option can be for a fuss-free gold or platinum wedding ring where you simply rub it with a soft, lint-free cloth and you're good to go.

Size Your Wedding Rings Correctly

The majority of couples hardly ever remove their wedding rings, they typically wear them throughout their lives.  To find the ideal size wedding rings, schedule your last ring fitting at a time when you're calm and your body temperature is normal. Never size your wedding rings first thing in the morning because your body retains water from the night before.  Also don’t go for a wedding ring final fitting just after you have worked out, because your fingers swell or when you’re cold because your fingers actually shrink.

Purchase Only Quality Precious Metals

Quality assurance applies to all wedding rings, not simply your wedding bands. Make certain your wedding ring has two marks inside the band, the designers trademark and the quality mark of 24K or PLAT which reads on the inside of your wedding rings that ensures quality that will last a lifetime.
