3 Tips to Follow When Shopping for Diamond Wedding Rings

by Kevin Smith Author

Are you looking for Vandalia, IL diamond wedding rings? They can be quite an intimidating purchase to make. Here are a few tips to follow when shopping for them.

Gather Sample Designs

Before going to a boutique, you and your significant other can look at potential ring designs online or in wedding magazines. You can do this together or separately and present your ideas to each other afterward. Among all the styles you've seen, pick 5 designs that you both like. Narrowing down your options will make choosing a final set of wedding bands less overwhelming.

Bring pictures of these sample rings to the stores you'll visit. This'll make it easier for the jeweler to pick out styles that you'd like from their collection.

Think about Maintenance

Since you'll wear your ring daily, dirt will eventually accumulate on it, which means you'll have to do some maintenance. All designs will require regular cleaning. How often you'll have to do it will vary with each type.

To clean a diamond ring, you must soak it in warm and soapy water. Then, you have to lightly buff it with a toothbrush or makeup brush. The more diamonds you have on your band, the more tedious the maintenance process as you’ll have to carefully go over each one to make sure they're all clean.

The setting of the gem will also affect how much brushing your bands will need. Prong styles will often need more cleaning because their hooks expose more stone, creating little nooks and crannies. If you prefer something low maintenance, you can get a bezel set diamond. Since the jewel is encased in metal, you'll only have to clean its perimeter.

Get the Right Size

Your fingers don't stay the same size over the years. When people get sick, experience seasonal temperature changes, or become pregnant, the sizes of their digits change. The ring diameter you tried on initially may no longer be right for you when your body goes through these transformations.

To get your actual size, schedule your final fitting at a time when your body is most normal. This way, you'll get the true average diameter of your fingers. If you experience size changes, your wedding band will be slightly looser or tighter, but it can be resized.

These are just a few tips you can use when shopping for Vandalia, IL diamond wedding rings. Keep them in mind so you'll find the right ones for you.
