How Much Should You Really Spend on a Wedding Ring?

by Micheal Trio Business
When it comes to wedding bands, most couples are often not as meticulous or keen on spending more, focusing on the engagement ring. However, considering the nature of wedding bands, where it is usually worn by the couple through their everyday lives, wedding bands can actually be considered as a lifetime accessory and marital testament.

While there are many couples who would rather not spend so much on their wedding bands, jewellers would advise them to consider a few factors that would help them make better decisions, and rationalize whether they can explore making their wedding bands a little more unique and personalized.

Here, we will be taking a look at some of the factors that would affect the price of a wedding band - from the design, compatibility and the user’s lifestyle habits.

  • Design

Couples are often faced with the age-old question, to have their wedding bands customized, or to pick a pair off the shelf? The more conservative would opt for a simple and classic pair of bands, which will be less costly and as a simple symbol of marital bond. 

Couples who choose to customize their wedding bands may find that the price will be slightly higher, depending on the level of customization. While the wives would usually like to throw in a couple of mini-diamonds onto their wedding band, husbands tend to stick to a plain wedding band, or have at most a single mini-diamond as the centerpiece of their wedding ring. Some ladies may even go the extra mile and add an entire row of channel mini-diamonds, for the added bling and brilliance. Of course, we then have to consider another factor that greatly affects how many, or if you should even consider adding mini-diamonds to your wedding band.

  • Lifestyle

Are you often out of home, actively participating in sports and outdoor activities? Does your hobbies require very physical or rigorous movements? For individuals who consider themselves to be leading pretty active lifestyles, a wedding band with multiple mini-diamonds might not be suitable, as there is a higher chance of scratching the diamonds and wedding band. Therefore active couples should consider getting a simple wedding band instead.

For the less initiated, we’d say go crazy with your customization! You have the chance to explore and customize your wedding bands to your heart’s desires, making it as special as possible, uniquely yours. Now the only question left to consider is the compatibility - a matching pair with your spouse, or to fit seamlessly along with your engagement ring?

  • Compatibility 

What does your husband think of having similar wedding bands? Would you prefer a matching pair, or are you alright with having different styles of wedding bands? These are just some questions that could help you determine the level of customization and compatibility between your spouse and your very own wedding bands.

If you prefer to have a matching wedding band and engagement ring, then you may opt to have your band and proposal ring customized together, for a compatible fitting when you wear both rings together. Ultimately, what truly matters is how good you feel wearing your wedding bands, and only then will the price will feel right.
