Are you getting married in a couple of months? Then you’ll need a set of wedding rings.
Finding the perfect design is easier said than done. That’s why the goldsmiths of Wim Meeussen give you some buying tips:
1) Pick the right material
First and foremost, you need to decide on the material of the wedding ring. Do you want something classic in yellow gold? A trendy white gold ring? Or do you prefer the feminine beauty of rose gold? This choice is very important, because it influences the look and feel.
2) Choose a purity
Once you have picked a material, you need to choose the purity. Purity is represented by the carat/karat number. Usueally, wedding rings come in 14 and 18 karat gold. The higher this number, the higher the price, because it contains more precious metals. So a 18 karat ring is more valuable than a 14 karat model.
3) Find your favorite design
Next, it’s time to choose a design. Wedding rings come in various shapes and sizes. There are very thin rings, thick ones, with a modern style or a classic look, with or without a diamond, etc. There’s plenty of choice for everybody. Just make sure that the design matches your wedding dress. This way, they complement each other.
4) Don’t follow trends
A piece of advice when you’re buying a wedding ring: don’t follow trends. Most trens only last a couple of years. But a wedding ring lasts a lifetime. That’s why it’s a good idea to go for a classic design that will look good in ten or twenty years from now.
5) Go for a custom made ring
If you can’t find the perfect ring for your wedding; don’t panic. You can always order a bespoke design. There are plenty of goldsmiths that can turn your dreams into reality. Custom handmade rings might not come cheap, but it’s a small price to pay to find the perfect design for this special occasion.
