How to Find the Best Womens Wedding Rings

Before you start looking for women's wedding rings, you need to determine what type of ring you want.  You need to consider the type of diamond you and the type of material you want the band to be made out of. Here are a few tips to help you choose the perfect women's and men's wedding rings.

1. Type of material: Do you want white gold or yellow gold? Palladium or platinum? The type of material you choose for the band will limit your options as far as the setting goes. If you are going with a thin, jewel inlaid band, you will need a stronger metal to support the diamond.  If you are just choosing a solid band, then regular gold will be fine. This goes for both women's and men's wedding rings.

2. Type of Gem: How big a gem do you want? What is the quality of gem you are intereLONDON, ENGLAND - APRIL 24:  A gallery technic...Image by Getty Images via @daylifested in? Quality and size have a big impact on the setting you choose. A gem with cloudy spots may not work well with an open setting. For this type of gem, you want to choose a setting that will conceal and defects in the diamond.

3. Setting: The setting determines how big of a gem you can accommodate (or must use). A large setting will require a large diamond to just look proportional while a small setting may be incapable of supporting a large gem.
When shopping for women's or men's wedding rings, make sure you keep these three principals in the back of your mind at all times.

When you think about a marriage what comes to mind? The image of two gold wedding rings being exchanged is probably the first thing you think of. This idea of the gold ring has been a symbol for marriage for hundreds of years. Now a days, with that large selections of gold, the old yellow wedding rings are beginning to look a little bland.  If you want a gold wedding ring you now choose from the following types of gold.

1.    White gold – this gold looks similar to silver but can have a very polished look. White gold is actually an alloy of pure gold mixed with one white metal such as nickel, manganese or palladium. Just like yellow gold, it’s purity is measured in carats.

2.    Rose gold – This is a mix of copper, yellow gold and silver to give it the light pink color.Wedding ringsImage by apdk via Flickr

3.    Yellow gold – Yellow gold is true gold, since all gold is yellow in color. Yellow gold is measured in carats just like the other forms of gold are.

So now that you know what your options are, do you still want to stick with the traditional yellow gold wedding rings?

For many men, choosing engagement rings is a daunting task. Choosing rings involves all of the things that a lot of us really aren’t really great at like, fashion, style and color coordination – which is nothing like choosing men’s wedding rings. But don’t worry; here are a couple tricks to find out exactly what she wants in a ring before you have to make any big decisions.

Tip 1: When your girlfriend brings up engagement or marriage, ask subtle probing questions.  This may sound easy but it’s actually quite tricky if you want her to not catch on. If she’s talking about a mutual friend, try to ask her what she thinks about the girls ring. Also, try to ask her what her idea of the perfect wedding would be, because chances are, she will also mention the ring. This is a great “sneak tactic” to gather information from your girlfriend when you are choosing engagement rings.

Tip 2: Stop by the jewelry store to “look at a watch” and happen to pass by the rings.  When you pass by the rings, make a comment on one that you like and gauge her response. Keep casual about it, and try to figure out which ones she likes the most as ask why. Don’t linger too long though, or she will get the suspicion that something is up.

If you want to make it a surprise, the best way to go about it is by using investigative techniques like the ones above.  Once you have a good idea of what she likes, you can easily find men’s wedding rings to match.

Diamond Wedding Rings For Men – A New Trend.

For hundreds of years,diamond wedding rings have been used as a symbol of eternal love between a man and a woman. Traditionally the woman would receive an ornate diamond ring and the man would wear a flat wedding band. This is not the case anymore.

Men are now choosing single diamond rings to full diamond-encrusted wedding bands. This trend could be because the work that men do is changing. Men are no longer working the fields 12 hours a day or doing hard manual labor. Additionally, the modern man is becoming more fashion conscious and is viewing the wedding ring as an accessory.

When you hear men’s diamond wedding rings, your mind probably jumps to the picture of a rapper with a big diamond chain and a diamond encrusted ring. When we look at men’s wedding rings, this is not the case.  When we address men’s diamond wedding rings, they are often very tasteful and modest.

Just like women’s rings, men’s diamond wedding rings also come in a variety of materials and price ranges.  Men’s rings come in the traditional gold and silver as well as platinum and titanium. Sandra Looking through Wil's wedding ring.Image via Wikipedia

The selection of diamonds is also as plentiful as women’s rings. Men have most of the great selections of styles and cuts that women do. One thing you may notice is, that most men’s wedding rings will tend to contain a squarer cut, more masculine looking diamond.

Whatever your diamond preference may be, there are certainly enough wedding bands on the market to meet anyone’s tastes.

Gold Wedding Rings: Classic Choice for Wedding Rings

Gold rings have become part of traditional choice for wedding occasions. Choosing the right wedding bands is an important part of the planning which must be given enough time in order to better choose the one that suits the couple’s size, taste and budget. 
There are certain factors that need to be considered in choosing a gold ring and this includes the carat and the quality of gold. For instance, 24k is of basically pure than a 14k gold. The higher the carat is, the higher is the ratio of gold to other alloy contained on a piece of jewelry. Such that in the example, the 24-carat gold is considered to have no other metals present because of its 99.9 percent gold property. However, compared to other lower carat bands, the purer the gold is, the softer is its quality and may not actually be ideal to wear on a daily basis.A Möbius strip employed as a gold wedding band...Image via Wikipedia
According to experts, the best gold wedding rings are usually those that are made of 14-carat due to its firmer gold property which makes it possible even to be worn everyday. Although the quality of 14-carat gold is stronger, it is still considered soft enough to be crafted as bands.
Aside from the carat, it is also important that you choose a wedding band according to its fit. Make sure that you use a ring sizer in order to avoid confusion when it comes to sizes.
Among the popular choice for wedding rings in gold is the 14K gold twisted rope wedding band perfect for both men and women. Two thin bands of gold are woven together to create that twisted rope effect which can be further customized to your choice of either white of yellow gold. This style is available online or from your local jewelry store.

Wedding ringsImage via WikipediaBefore you buy the jewelry, it pays well if you can make a research on how jewelers grade the materials used and the gems added to them. Although your jewelry store can provide you with the data, it is still important to understand the criteria very well. The persuasive sales talk of the seller can easily mislead you if you are not armed with the correct information. For example, two tone wedding rings vary in price depending on the quality of gold or platinum used. Read and be informed before you go shopping.
Always keep in mind that the wedding bands are parts of your early investment as a couple. Include your partner when choosing the right pair. They should represent not only your love for each other but your commitment to work ‘together” for the rest of your life.

Wedding Ring Sets – Practical or Not?

Wedding ring sets consist of the bridal set of rings namely the engagement ring and the matching, sometimes, interlocking wedding ring. On some occasions, the groom’s wedding ring is also included. Couples who are out in the market for rings usually want to know whether buying the said rings as a set is the right and practical way to go.

Why buy rings in sets?
Grooms-to-be have long bought engagement rings in a bridal set. A set was more affordable but did not sacrifice the taste of the buyer. Often these sets come at a better price and a great incentive because you purchase two rings at once. Moissanite engagement ringImage via Wikipedia
When the time comes for you to have these cleaned, it will be easier to go to the single jeweler you bought the rings from instead of going to two different jewelers for two different rings. 
Furthermore, sets guarantee that the engagement and wedding rings match each other without worrying about differences in the shade of the metal. 
The rings in the set were meant to be worn side by side and were thus very simple.  Often, these sets consisted of a solitaire engagement ring and a matching metal making up the band.  However, due to the limited variety available, many have chosen to buy rings separately. 
Nowadays, the classic forms are still popular, but a wider range of fashionable rings have become available. 

What are the options available?
Wedding ring sets now come in unique designs and shapes.  The two bands are designed to fit each other.  The wedding bands can be simple and made to rest upon the solitaire engagement ring, just beneath the diamond. Some sets feature wedding bands that curve to reflect the shape of the engagement ring. Still, other sets are designed to allow the engagement ring to slide between two portions of the wedding band so that the wedding band forms a scaffold around it. These rings slide into the finger looking like a single rather than two rings. 
Given all these new choices, couples see the beauty of buying wedding rings that comes in a set with their engagement rings

Diamond Wedding Rings – Symbols of a “Happily Ever After”

  No other piece of jewelry has ever been associated with commitment as often as diamond wedding rings.  These rings symbolize financial as well as emotional investments.  This may lead you to ask, when did this tradition come into being?

3,000 years ago in India

The deep history and heritage of wearing diamond studded wedding bands consists of varying stories.  One of the most well believed story is that 3,000 years ago in India, diamonds were given high value.  Diamonds have the ability to reflect light and were thus believed to have powers that could drive away evil spirits.  Diamonds were thought to have had magical powers to perform medical wonders like healing of wounds.  Around the middle ages, this outlook changed into valuing diamonds for their worth instead of the “magic” they were thought to possess.  Of course, given the value of the lifelong commitment of marriage, diamonds are a natural choice to place on rings that will embody this precious commitment.

European Tradition

In Ancient Rome, diamond rings make the last among a series of gifts given during engagement. Another set of diamond wedding rings are given on the wedding day to symbolize the ongoing nature of a lasting marriage.  After the first child is born, a trilogy ring with three brilliant-cut diamonds is given to represent the past, present and future of the marriage union.    

Historically speaking, the wedding ring is connected to the exchange of valuables during the wedding.  It used to represent a contract between two families and an assurance of the economic safety of the newlywed couple.  However, it has evolved to symbolize eternal love and devotion. It is now more than just a contract but a real connection between individual lovers instead of two families. 

Regardless of where the tradition has originated, weddings bands are now worn by couples as an outward confession of loyalty.

The Uniqueness of Antique Wedding Rings

Antique wedding rings have something in them that modern rings do not have. Although contemporary designs have their own niceties, they have a disadvantage in the fact that they are mass produced. This means that there is always something that looks similar in all of them. Wedding rings that were produced in the old days were made by hand. They were incorporated with customized details that cannot be reproduced in mass produced rings. An antique ring is more individualized down to its own peculiarities. Hence, if you are considering a ring that will really highlight the occasion, there is nothing more fitting than an antique ring.

This is reflected in the price they put on the rings they sell. If you really want to look for wedding rings that are antique but cannot afford an expensive price tag, search for one on the internet. Make sure that you get it from a certified jeweler and check his credibility by reading on online reviews. You should also learn if his return policy is liberal enough.
You would always get good value for your money by purchasing wedding rings that are already considered antiques. They have a character that that is incorporated in the way they are made, and the history that is in them cannot be found in modern rings. Many of the jewelers selling antique wedding rings know the history of particular rings and he can share it with you when you purchase one.

Your Ring Should be as Strong as Your Marriage, Try Platinum

Platinum wedding rings have become all the rage for newlyweds lately. Not only has pop-culture made the platinum wedding ring a desirable choice for married couples, but the strength, beauty, and value of the metal have as well. A wedding ring needs to last a lifetime and having a strong metal is important if you plan to have the same ring for your entire marriage. For years, white gold has been a traditional metal for wedding rings. Platinum offers the same coloring as a white gold ring, and it is more durable than gold.
Another great thing about platinum is that the metal itself is more rare and valuable than gold is. While the rarity of this metal does mean that you will pay a bit more for platinum than you would for gold, the strength of the metal means that you will never have to worry about your wedding ring denting or bending. Many times gold wedding rings have a tendency to lose their shape over the years of wear, with a platinum ring you will never have to worry about that.
Platinum rings are also a great idea for the couple that is allergic to gold. While the jewelry industry would never have you believe it, there are a great number of people who are allergic to gold. A platinum ring can offer the same beauty as gold, without the allergic reaction.

Make Your Rings Unique With Hand Carving

One of the problems with buying wedding rings is finding one that you really like. Sure, there are rings that you sort of like, but there are always one or two things about them that do not fit in with your style. Luckily, that no longer has to be the case. Over the last ten years, many shops have developed the ability to produce hand carved wedding rings.
The best thing about a hand carved ring is the ability to customize the ring. Imagine finding a wedding band that you loved except that it was just a bit to plain for your tastes, you no longer have to worry about that. You now have the ability to add your own bit of personality to the ring. Instead of spending months trying to find the ring that has everything you want, you only have to find the ring that is missing something you want, and then have it hand carved.
One of the few problems with hand carved wedding rings is finding a place that offers the service. While it is true that many local shops can now offer you the option of having the ring hand carved, it will cost you a fortune. Shopping online could be the key to finding the perfect ring and being able to customize it for less than you would pay at you local jeweler.
If the idea of a hand carved ring intrigues you, is here to help. Browse our selection of hand carved rings to find the ring you need and customize it to your liking.
