Wedding rings - the bridal guide

Although engagement rings get the most talks, wedding rings are just as important. Your wedding ring needs to be perfect - its as simple as that. Whether you choose a simplistic plain wedding band or a gemstone eternity ring, your wedding ring needs to be of high quality and reflect your style and character. Here is how to find the perfect piece

Decide what you want

There are countless combinations of wedding ring designs in all precious with all thicknesses, weights, gemstones and diamond eternity rings. Browse for ideas and think about what wedding rings you would like to have before you visit the jewellers. Once you have an idea of what you might like to get, we would happily assist you in choosing the right precious metals and gems or diamonds. Use your engagement ring for inspiration, but whether you would match it to your wedding band is entirely up to you.

Precious metals

Platinum is our recommended option if you are prone to allergic reactions - it's is hypoallergenic and an extremely long wearing precious metal. Alternatively, choose White Gold for a contemporary look or Rose Gold for an eye-catching wedding ring with a vintage notch. Yellow Gold makes the perfect timeless wedding ring, but if you can't choose or want all, mix them.

Match your wedding ring to his

Although its not necessary, many couples choose to wear the same symbol of eternal love and pair their wedding rings. When matched, men's wedding rings tend to be thicker and heavier than women's, carrying some of the design elements. If the bride's wedding ring is a sapphire gemstone eternity band, the groom's ring may have a single small gemstone from the same variety. Another way to match wedding rings is by opting for precious metals in the same colours. Alternatively, couples could wear identical wedding rings - its all down to personal preferences. wedding rings eternity rings

Match with the Engagement ring

While precious metals and designs don’t necessarily need to complement each other, they should fit snugly, without any gaps. Try out rings with different thickness and bands. Your engagement ring could be wedfit – which means that the setting is slightly more raised, to fit perfectly along with your wedding ring. If it isn’t wedfit but you would still like a snug fit, we recommend shaped wedding bands, which come in all precious metals and designs.

Design you’d love forever

If unsure about the design, find something you consider a classical wedding ring, to match and reflect your personality. Unlike engagement rings, wedding rings tend to maintain their traditional designs and don't get too eccentric, unless if the customers want that. At Steven Stone we offer a wide range of wedding rings and can create any bespoke design. If you would like an unusual band or would like to develop your concept, simply come to one of our stores or get in touch with our experts to discuss your design.
