7 Tips on how to choose the Wedding Ring



1.WHAT MATERIAL IS RIGHT FOR ME?
Wedding rings comes in different metals, silver, gold, platinum, titanium, wood. A number of factors will determine the options available to you.

2. BUDGET 
Silver, wood and titanium rings tend to be priced at the lower end of the spectrum. 9ct gold rings tend to come next and then 18ct gold, with 22ct gold and platinum rings fetching the highest prices.

3. DURABILITY
If you’re looking for a wedding ring to sit alongside an engagement ring, a practical choice would be to select a wedding ring in the same metal as your engagement ring. Some metals are softer than others, and wearing a softer metal next to a harder one can mean that the softer one is worn away over time.

4. COLOUR
If you decide you’d prefer a ring in a white metal, you can choose between silver, steel, titanium, 9ct or 18ct white gold, palladium or platinum. When it comes to white gold, you may decide to have your ring rhodium plated, which gives white gold a whiter appearance. If you like the colour of yellow gold, bear in mind that 9ct yellow gold is a paler colour than 18ct. And when it comes to rose gold, 9ct is a deeper colour than 18ct, which has a softer tone.

5. WHAT PROFILE AM I LOOKING FOR?
The term ‘profile’ describes the shape of the cross-section of a ring. A ring with an ‘oval’ profile will be slightly rounded on the inside and outside. A ring with a ‘rectangular’ section will have a flat inside and outside, with straight edges.



6. WHAT WIDTH WOULD SUIT ME MOST?
Some hands are most flattered by a narrow ring, and others suit chunkier, wider styles. It’s only by trying on different rings that you’ll get a sense of what suits you best.

7. WHAT FINISH AM I LOOKING FOR?
From rings with a rough, hammered, organic finish, to those with a fine texture, to those that are highly polished. It all really depends on what you want or prefer, like they say, one man's meat is another man's poison.
