The hard part is done: you got your engagement ring!
...or, so you thought. Now you’ve got to find the perfect wedding band to go with it! Before you even say “I do” to the wedding band you think you want, check out these tips first to make sure your first buy is your only buy.
1. Don’t be afraid to try out something different.
You might have been firm on a specific eternity band, but what is that nagging feeling to check out that rose gold chevron band? Go beyond your Pinterest board! If it’s out of your comfort zone but for some reason you’re still attracted to it, try it on anyway. You might be pleasantly surprised at how good the band will look with your engagement ring! Similar to wedding dresses, you’ll never know until you put it on.
2. Define your personal style.
Do you gravitate towards simple and minimal pieces? Or are you a lover of all things bling? You’re going to be wearing your wedding band every day, so make sure it’s something that fits your overall aesthetic and personality. Don’t feel pressured to get something flashy if you know you feel more comfortable in classic styles and vice-versa.
3. Pick out a wedding ring set instead.
Rings: The Rose set
If you want your work cut out for you, consider getting a wedding set! While this does take the element of surprise out from your partner unveiling the ring to you, if that doesn’t matter then a wedding set is a great option. Wedding ring sets are made to look beautiful together and to sit flush – what more could you ask for?
4. Look into the future.
Ring: The Mia
Trends come and go, some trends are here to stay. What matters though is what you will think of your ring 5, 10, 15, 20+ years from now. Is the style something that you’ll love for many years to come? Or do you think you’ll abandon ship and want something different come next season?
