Not sure where to start? Check out the following tips on choosing your weddings rings

Shop early

Wedding rings are usually expensive. On the average you can get a pair of pretty gold bands for around $500 to $1000. Take note that gold’s market value fluctuates depending on the season, and so does other metals and gemstones. So if you must shop for it, do it now. Set up a budget and stick to it.

Buy as a couple

Wedding rings come in different shapes and sizes, and the price will depend on a lot of things — the materials used, the metal, gemstones, cut, shape, etc. Your wedding rings should be something both of you agree on. It’s unlike other parts of your wedding where it’s enough to have one of you decide. You will wear your rings everyday, so it’s important that you love how it looks and you mutually agreed on the design. It’s not required to have matching rings, but most couples prefer to have partner bands as it symbolizes their unity. If you guys have really different tastes, there’s always a max to mix and match. You like gold but he likes platinum? Why not a braided style intertwining the two metals? Research on different styles and learn that even the most opposite of personalities can agree on a design.

Consider your lifestyle

It pays to get rings that won’t get in the way of your daily activities. Who needs a big chunk of sparkling diamond when it’s gonna end up ripping off your surgical gloves when you’re working in the operating room? Your rings are going to be part of your daily life so consider something that would complement your lifestyle. Choose comfortable rings if you have an active lifestyle because you’re gonna have to get used to wearing it everyday.

Happy shopping!
