Thinking of proposing soon? or buying your wedding bands? Do you know what kind of ring your other half wants, or do you intend to surprise them? Are you shopping alone or with your spouse? Whatever you decide to do, remember that a bit of research will go a long way in aiding your purchase. So today, let’s talk about the basics shall we?
An engagement ring comprises of three parts; the first part is the band which goes around the finger, these are usually made of silver or gold, the second part is the setting which holds the stone and is made of the same material as the band and the third part is the stone.
A wedding ring/band is much simpler than an engagement ring and most often includes little or no stones. Most brides like to wear both the engagement ring/wedding band while some opt for just the wedding band. Grooms usually just wear a plain band. Just remember, your wedding ring shouldn’t play second fiddle to your engagement ring.(for the ladies)
Keep your lifestyle and that of your spouse in mind when selecting. Remember, you’re going to wear this band every day, so choose something that easily becomes a part of you. Things to consider when buying are; the kind of work you do, how active you are. Your ring is meant to last through all your jobs, house chores, PTA meetings, school runs, and social functions from now till when you decide to replace it. You don’t want a ring that wears off before time or goes missing.
