Your Guide to Choosing the Perfect Wedding Ring Set

8th Aug 2017

So, you and your partner have decided to get married! Congratulations! And, even though it took a few not-so-subtle hints to get there, you’re now on a mission to find the perfect wedding ring set.

But where do you start and what do you need to consider?

The Benefits of Buying a Wedding Ring Set

Firstly, you might be looking around at all the different styles of engagement rings, wedding bands, and eternity rings available, wondering how you can coordinate them and find the right one for you. However, thankfully, a wedding ring set takes a lot of this hassle away from you.

Designed to provide you with two or three complementing rings, these sets offer you individual rings that work incredibly well together. Therefore, they’re ideal for creating a fluid look when you’re wearing all of the rings together, but still allow you to wear the individual rings as stand-alone pieces.

Mix and Match Your Wedding Ring Colors

A common argument between brides- and grooms-to-be is the color of their wedding bands. Some prefer gold while others prefer silver. However, there’s nothing stopping you from having different colored wedding bands.

Nevertheless, if you do want your wedding bands to have some kind of similarity, you might want to opt for a band that intertwines both colors. It’s a win-win for both of you then!

Consider Your Lifestyle

A key thing to remember is that you’re going to be wearing this wedding ring set every day for the rest of your life. That’s why it’s important to make sure it’ll fit in with your day-to-day activities. For example, if you play an instrument or you’re involved in a lot in sports, you might find a ring with rounded edges and a slimmer design is much more comfortable. Or, if you have to get your hands dirty with work a lot, opt for a heavy-duty ring that will be able to withstand a lot of wear and tear.

Go for Something Different

As many brides-to-be find out with their wedding dresses, what you originally had in mind might not be what you end up going for. And the same may be the case with your wedding ring set. Therefore, it’s a good idea to shop around for inspiration and explore new designs because you never know what you might fall in love with.

Get the Right Size

Few people will take their wedding rings off, which means their fingers are constantly contracting and swelling underneath the ring. Therefore, you need to make sure the rings you’re buying will be able to withstand these changes. So, when you’re finding out your ring size, make sure body temperature is at a normal level and you’re feeling calm. This means you should never check your ring size just after you’ve exercised, first thing in the morning, or when you’re very hot or cold.

Armed with all of these handy tips you should be able to find the right wedding ring set for you. Just remember to not only consider the style but the practicality of your rings, too.
