WEDDING RINGS - what to think about when choosing yours

Wedding rings have become a larger and larger part of my business over the last couple of years. I offer a range of designs from very classic to more contemporary in a wide variety of metals and sizes. 

Choosing a ring to wear for the rest of your life can feel like a huge decision. I often find the easiest way to start is by eliminating what you know you don't want, then you can start to think about the style. Are you envisioning a simple band or one with embellishments? Do you want your wedding ring to be the same metal as your engagement ring? Do you think you and your partner’s rings should match? 

The other important factor to make sure you do, is allow plenty of time.

Most people by the time they reach marriage, have quite a strong opinion on the type of metal they prefer. my rings are available in a variety of golds as well as silver, platinum and palladium.

Have you set a budget? Definitely worth thinking about as this could have a big imapact on what is available to you.

Be sure to factor in your lifestyle too. There is no point having a beautiful ornate ring if it is going to get in the way of your everyday life. It's important also to think long term. Choose something that you will still love in forty years time.

Most people rarely take off their wedding bands; they wear them through summers, winters, exercise, pregnancies—all times when your fingers swell and contract from heat, cold, water retention or weight gain. 

To find the right size that will best weather all of those changes, schedule your final ring fitting at a time when you're calm and your body temperature is normal. That means you should never finalize first thing in the morning (you retain water from the night before), right after you've exercised (fingers swell) or when you're extremely hot or cold (which can cause your hands to expand and shrink).

As the choice of a ring can be a considerable investment, I aim to provide as much information as possible to help with the many decisions which need to be made. You can find out more here:
