Wedding bands are important symbolism's of your unending love for each other. They are visible reminders of your sweet vows. Because they are for keeps, you need to give as much attention when choosing them as when you are choosing your wedding gown or your wedding reception. Here are tips to help you in the task.
Set your Budget
Rings vary in price. The first thing to do before you shop around is to set your budget. Generally, they should comprise 3% of your wedding budget. You can go below or beyond the amount depending on your personal choice and the availability of your funds.
Decide on the Style
The choices for the wedding rings are countless. To trim down your options, you need to decide on the style you want. Do you want a single or two tone wedding rings, silver, gold or platinum material, simple designs or embedded with precious gems? Because you will have them for the rest of your life, make sure they are not only representations of your marriage but of your personal style as well.
Research about the Grading

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.
