Wedding rings can be so much more than just a simple metal band! You have so many choices when it comes to jewelry that symbolizes your love and commitment with your partner. In today’s blog, Preusser Jewelers offers a wedding ring buying guide for couples planning a wedding.
Precious metals for wedding rings usually come in two basic types: You have gold and then platinum. But there are actually three different colors of gold to choose from. Yellow gold is the traditional color of wedding bands, and white gold looks like silver with a soft luster. Rose gold is gaining prominence as a copper-colored type of gold. Platinum shimmers more brightly than white gold and doesn’t wear off or fade as much as white gold. These are the most common choices for wedding rings, but we can custom-design your item using other types of precious metals to make your wedding ring unique!

Diamonds work wonderfully in wedding rings and not just engagement rings! Think about a pavé band filled with a row of diamonds or as part of a bridal set that matches or contrasts your engagement ring. An eternity band has diamonds all around the ring to symbolize everlasting love. You might consider a design with diamonds on only half of the ring in case you need to resize the ring later. Diamonds add sparkle to a men’s or women’s wedding ring!
Bridal sets combine two or more rings. Women wear two different rings on the same finger, one as an engagement ring and another as a wedding ring. Some sets allow both rings to fuse together. Two rings morphing into one increase the wow factor!
Bands vary in width from 2 to 8 millimeters. Comfort-fit rings slide over your knuckle easier because the inside of the ring is rounded. Comfort-fit rings tend to fit a bit looser than standard bands. Selecting the correct band is one reason why it’s essential to get your finger sized properly ahead of getting the wedding ring you want.
Your lifestyle may determine the type of wedding ring you want. Active people may want something understated and flat, such as a plain band or a pavé band. For something flashier, bridal sets with larger diamond settings are the way to go.
Timing and Budget
Start your search for wedding rings early once you decide to get married. Early shopping lets you determine a budget and shop for rings within your price range. It also gives you an idea of what you can afford in plenty of time for your big day.
