How to Pick the Perfect Wedding Band?by Donnell Dean Wedding Bands
Picking out a wedding ring can get overwhelming for a lot of people. There are so many options and styles available. How do you decide on the ultimate wedding band that suits your style? This helpful guide will list down the things you should consider before buying your wedding band.
Decide on the Style
This is the first and the most important step of your process. Sit down with a notebook and think about your likes and dislikes. What kind of wedding band do you want? Do you want a simple band or do you want a fancy ring? Would you like to match bands with your partner? What kind of metal and stones would you prefer? These are some of the factors you should make a note of. Your partner may want a simple 5mm gold wedding band but maybe you want a different metal. Or maybe you do not want a 5mm wedding band and would like to go for something thinner and more delicate. Make a list of your preferences so that you can narrow down your search options.
Fix Your Budget
This goes without saying. It is advisable to decide the budget for your wedding band in advance. Some people like to go all out and pick an expensive ring. On the other hand, some people like to keep it economical and opt for something in a regular price range. Discuss the budget with your partner so that it does not become an issue in the future.
The kind of lifestyle you lead is also a determining factor in what kind of wedding band you pick. If your lifestyle involves a lot of grunge work which gets your hand dirty or wet, a delicate ring may not last long. Thus, in this case, a 5mm wedding band or a thicker option is more suitable. Conversely, if you are confident that you can take care of a thinner and more delicate style of ring, you can pick those. You may have to wear gloves while washing the dishes or remove the ring while taking a bath. Therefore, your lifestyle is something you should consider carefully while making a ring purchase.
Wedding bands need to be polished or cleaned once in a while to maintain their sheen and quality. Thus, the amount of maintenance that your ring will require also becomes a deciding factor. If you pick a standard 5mm gold wedding band, you may need to get it polished less often. However, if your ring has encrusted diamonds or other gemstones, it may need to get polished and cleaned more often. Therefore, consider the long-term expenses that will go into the ring while you select your dream wedding ring.
