You’re about to propose to the person you love; you want to spend the rest of your life with them, and you’re absolutely sure they want to do the same. You feel like you’ve met ‘the one’, and you want to sweep them off their feet in a moment of pure romance! And yet, how do you find a ring that perfectly suits your purposes? Because any old ring won’t do, and there’s so many out there on the market. You’re a bit spoiled for choice, and you just can’t make up your mind!
Don’t worry, we might be able to help you out here. After all, you can find the perfect ring when you know what you’re looking for. So, go through the questions below, to make sure you’re happy with the wedding ring decision you’re making.
Of course, the key thing to remember when buying rings is what your partner likes, and what they don’t like. You’re buying a ring for them to wear on their finger, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – it needs to be something they’d be happy to commit to! And when you buy a ring that perfectly suits your partner’s tastes, you prove to them just how much you love and pay attention to them.
So, what kind of metal do they like? Do they want it to be soft or hard? Do they want it to be silver or gold in colour? What stones would they love that metal colour to be paired with? Rings can be notoriously hard to shop for, but when you take it step by step with filters like these, the search becomes a whole lot easier!
The next thing to do is come up with a budget. You don’t want to blow the majority of your savings on wedding rings – you’ve got a whole wedding and honeymoon to buy for yet! And sometimes, the ring you’re thinking of isn’t quite worth the price tag attached to it.
So give yourself a max price, and make sure you stick to it. Don’t even go over it by a couple of pennies here and there; that’s an easy gateway into spending too much when you don’t quite have enough in the bank to do so. Remember, try not to buy anything less than £100, to make sure you retain quality in the ring, but you don’t have to go all the way up to £10,000 either!
And last but not least, the practical element. You need to buy a ring your partner can wear, whatever the weather. For example, if they work in the medical sector, a thick ring with a big stone on top just won’t do! Keep their lifestyle in mind as you shop.
So, how do you decide on a wedding ring? No one can decide for you, of course, but we can definitely help steer you in the right direction! Hope this list helps!
