Finding Unique Wedding Rings and Wedding Bands

When it comes to finding unique wedding rings, you have a lot of options. There are currently 100’s of styles of wedding bands to choose from and just as many diamond cuts, sizes and qualities.

When trying to pick out a ring there are a few questions you should be able to answer:

1.    What type of metal does she like? There are many different types of metal that a ring can be made from. You can get a ring made from gold, white gold, rose gold, silver, titanium or platinum. Each metal has different properties, and can affect to overall look and weight of the ring.  Metals such as gold, are soft and easy to work with for jewelers. Metals such as platinum are harder, and are also more costly.

2.    What type of stone does she like? Does she like the antique cushion cut look or a square cut? Does she like a multifaceted diamond or is she interested in a teardrop shaped diamond? The cut of the stone is critical in discovering what kinds of wedding bands you can use.  There are also varying Wedding ring, Byzantium, 7th c.
