After the nerve-racking proposal and hearing a marvellous “Yes” from your partner, it’s now time to move on to the next level of your relationship: planning the wedding.
If you think you’re done researching for ring designs and fitting, well, you’re in for a surprise. Choosing a wedding band for you and your partner can also be as stressful as finding her the perfect engagement ring. At least now, you get to partner up with your future wife.
While the most common method of purchasing matching bands for you and your partner is certainly there, it’s also rather common for couples to get bands with different metals or ring styles. Choosing different types of metal or ring design doesn’t make it less than a wedding band; you can still make the two rings compliment each other withoutb them looking exactly the same.
A wedding ring is an important, weighted object that will be worn by someone for quite a long time. That’s why it’s truly crucial for you and your partner to each find a ring that you will be able to wear comfortably even with the day-to-day tasks.
If you’d like to opt for a diamond wedding band, numerous bespoke jeweller can design bands that compliment each other well, so that’s a thing you should keep in mind. You can personally discuss your preferences with a bespoke diamond jeweller, and explain to him or her that you and your partner are interested in wedding rings that has different metal or ring designs, but still has a common thread in aesthetic and style.
Platinum, Gold, and Silver jewellery can be polished in so many ways to achieve different effect. Highly polished rings are by far the most popular and will render the brightest shine to any piece of bespoke jewellery. A ring with matte or satin finish will shine less and is commonly used to emphasize the diamonds in the ring; this finish is increasingly being used in men’s wedding rings. A brushed finish provides a rough-textured appearance of tiny brush marks, while a wedding ring with hammered finish will give a uniquely beautiful wavy effect.
Another great idea of creating common ground to the wedding bands is to have them engraved. This is a seamless way of bringing a personal element to each ring whether they are similar in style or not.
The most important thing you should bear in mind is that you and your partner are both wearing a band that you love and want to wear everyday. Your band should be important to you, thus, it should reflect your own personal style.
