Wedding bands are among the most important rings you’ll ever buy. They symbolise your bond with your spouse and you might well be wearing the items for the rest of your life.

So, it’s important not to rush the process of choosing wedding rings. As long as you spend some time thinking about which versions are best for you, you should end up with bands that both you and your other half are completely happy with. Luckily, there are plenty of rings out there for you to choose from.

Test your metal

One of the first decisions you’ll have to make when you’re on the hunt for wedding rings is what sort of metal you’ll go for. The most traditional option is gold and 18 carat is very popular because it balances purity and durability to great effect. Whereas a higher carat, like 24, is purer, it is also more likely to bend over time. In contrast, lower carats may not look and feel quite as special, but they tend to last longer.

Other metals, such as silver, platinum and white gold, have become more popular over recent years and they can offer a more modern look. So, if you prefer contemporary styles or just like the appearance of these materials, they’re well worth investigating. Also, you might have a lot of existing silver, platinum and white gold jewellery, in which case it makes sense to go for wedding band rings that are in-keeping.

Think big

Ring size is also an important factor. If you have big hands, you can get away with wider rings that have more accentuated detail. In contrast, if your hands are more petite, you may be better off going for a delicate design.

Of course, if you plan to have diamonds set into the bands, they have to be wide enough to accommodate the gems.
