Weddings are a special moment in everyone’s life. We will do anything to make that day memorable. Choosing the perfect wedding band sets is a hard task to do when you plan for the wedding and it is really important to find the right wedding ring for your better half. Here are some important things you need to consider before buying a wedding band set.
On an average, every couple in America will spend 3 percent of their wedding budget on their wedding rings. Usually woman’s engagement ring costs more than the wedding band of a man. The price for a band ranges from $250 to $2,000 depending on the quality and style of the band. But if you are planning to buy a diamond wedding band set, the prices will go up further. A white or yellow gold band or a plain platinum band can bring down your ring budget to less than $200.
Wedding bands are a symbol of love. At the same time they are also a good investment. So it is important to choose a wedding band of good quality. Buy your ring from a reputed jeweler to ensure that you are getting a quality wedding band. Good quality rings have a manufacturer’s trademark and a sponsor’s symbol marked on the inside of the ring. Reputable jewelers always have a certificate of authenticity that proves the product you are about to buy is of good quality.
It is important to choose which metal you want for your wedding band. People usually prefer gold over other metals like silver and platinum. Gold is more delicate, expensive and keeps its luster longer than silver and platinum. Men prefer platinum rings over gold and silver because it is heavier and durable. Silver rings are more affordable, but they are not durable and quickly lose its shine. Once you decide which metal you want, then you can choose which gem you want on the ring.
Choosing wedding bands of right size is also an important thing. Most people don’t take off their wedding rings, even in hot summers and cold winters. This may cause the fingers to swell and contract from various environmental factors like heat, cold, water retention or sometimes allergies. So when you buy your wedding ring, make sure that the ring is not too tight and not too loose on your finger.
Buying a wedding band is a lifelong commitment and you should do your homework before buying one. Do a market research on several rings with your partner before making a final decision on which wedding band to buy.
