Who buys the wedding bands?

Who buys the wedding bands?

A wedding band is exchanged at weddings as a symbol to seal marriages. They are classed as ‘’the official symbol of the union of marriage’’. Typically, it is made from metal and is normally forged from gold or other like-minded precious metals. A wedding band carries significant meaning to the owner and symbolizes that they are married to someone else.

Most traditionally, brides and grooms buy one another the wedding bands. While shopping for the engagement ring is often done in secret, buying the wedding bands is a more collaborative process done together.

There are lots more questions that surround wedding bands, such as how to choose the right one for you and what styles are available to consumers. If you wish to find out more, then please keep reading. 

How to choose the right wedding band?

Research 

Avoid waiting until the last minute! This is crucial advice, as we see far too often couples who are simply trying to find something quickly. If you do this, there is a high chance that you will not find the ring that you will love for a lifetime. Remember, this jewelry will be with you for many, many years. 

Shop with your engagement ring 

By shopping with your engagement ring, you can see what metals, colors and overall design looks best with both aligned beside one another. Remember, once again, this is a piece of jewelry that you will be looking at every day for the rest of your life – make sure you choose something that you love to look at. 

What do you need to do to choose the correct wedding band? 

Shape

There are many shapes that you can choose when you go wedding ring shopping. Curved, Chevron, Court Shaped and D Shaped are just a few that you could consider. Choosing the correct shape is crucial as it will determine the overall look and comfort of the ring.

Size it correctly 

This is the most crucial tip we can offer – ensure that your sizing is correct! If you know that you will rarely take the wedding band off (which is pretty likely) then you have to make sure if you won’t be constantly pushing it back down to the base of your finger.

Don’t guess your size – get an accurate finger measurement. The best way to work out your finger’s measurements is to order an inexpensive ring sizer online – just don’t do the measuring first thing in the morning, or straight after exercise, as you’re a lot less likely to get an accurate reading.

Do wedding rings have real diamonds? 

While some wedding rings are plain – usually made from gold or platinum, but sometimes rarer metals like palladium – more and more brides and grooms are now finding themselves leaning toward something a little more special.

Diamonds hold a lot of meaning. They are incredibly strong and, of course, beautiful, and wedding rings can be made in a variety of styles featuring real diamonds, or other gemstones.

But how do you know where to look for a real diamond wedding band?
