Your wedding band is something you’ll wear every single day. While some people do decide to get a new ring for one of those milestone anniversaries (like your 25th, for example), most people plan on wearing the same ring for the rest of their life. What’s certain is that you’re going to be wearing it for years, and you want to make sure that it’s comfortable and of good quality. Most importantly, you want to make sure your band is something you’ll love to look at and wear. Let’s take a look at these five tips you should consider before buying a wedding band.
Decide Which Material is Your Favorite
The material you choose will usually be the main focus of your band. When buying a wedding band, you definitely want to consider the material you choose.
Let’s take a look at three stunning materials we offer here at Aurosi Jewels:
- Yellow Gold - Yellow gold wedding bands feature a timeless and pure color. Yellow gold is also easy to maintain and hypoallergenic. Perfect for the classic bride looking for a low-maintenance option.
- White Gold - White gold is durable and scratch-resistant. Perfect for a bride who lives an active lifestyle or works with her hands. White gold is much more affordable than platinum but still offers the same quality.
- Rose Gold - Rose gold is durable, affordable, and elegantly stunning — offering brides a delicate look. Rose gold is perfect for brides who love eccentric and graceful looks.
Keep it Simple
Keep it simple when you’re shopping for wedding bands. If you start with too many options, it is easy to quickly feel overwhelmed.
What metal color do you prefer? Are you looking for a curved band or do you have your heart set on an eternity band? Answering these questions can help you quickly narrow your choices down from 20 to 5.
Buy Your Engagement Ring and Wedding Band Together
If you can, when you’re buying a wedding band, you should definitely buy your engagement ring at the same time. When you buy your rings at the same time, you can be sure that they’ll match perfectly. Avoid having a big headache later on and try on both your wedding band and engagement ring for free, at home! Aurosi Jewels offers a program where you can try on bands at home before you buy.
Mix and Match
While shopping for wedding bands, don’t be afraid to mix and match. There is nothing wrong with choosing a white gold wedding band when your engagement ring is rose gold. This will catch the eye and be a talking point! You also don’t have to match your ring to your partner’s. Your entire set may be white gold, while your partner prefers yellow gold. Mix and match metals and colors as you see fit. The important thing is that you love your ring and band.
Remember Your Lifestyle
It’s imperative that you will be comfortable wearing your band while living your everyday life. When buying a wedding band, always remember your lifestyle. Do you do a lot of work on the computer, or do you often find yourself up to your elbows in a garden? What about a job where you have to squeeze your hand into small spaces?
If your hands are used often for your work, you may want to consider an elegantly simple band. If you don’t need to worry about your ring getting caught on something or digging into the dirt, you may like a more elaborate band. Whichever style you choose, you want to be sure that with the proper maintenance, your ring will look and feel stunning for a long time.
