A wedding ring is often the most expensive piece of jewelry that a person will own. It is also the piece of jewelry that a person will wear for the majority of their life. That is why it is so important that your wedding ring is chosen carefully, and not just picked out on a whim.
When it comes to choosing a ring, you will want to choose one that fits your lifestyle. If you are someone who works with heavy machinery or any machinery that has a lot of small moving pieces, you may want to avoid a ring with a diamond in a large setting. These diamonds are more at risk to be pulled loose from your ring if you’re working around machinery.
Many people are choosing to forgo the traditional style of wedding ring all together. More and more couples are looking to gemstones instead of diamonds to create a unique wedding band set. These types of rings showcase emeralds, sapphires and rubies in place of the central diamond set up that most wedding bands have.
No matter what style you choose, choose one that speaks to you. This is a ring that will be on your finger for years to come. You are the one who will have to look at it, so don’t let your peers or your family pressure your decision. It’s your ring and your big day, so make it your own.
