The cake will be eaten, the confetti will be blown away and the dress will end up in a wardrobe, but your wedding that lasts forever so make sure you choose the perfect one
Choosing your wedding ring can often depend on both what your engagement ring is like and also what your man is willing to wear. Further thought needs to be given to whether you go for a matching set or distinctly different rings. Do you both want a traditional plain band or would you rather add a bit of bling to your ring?
Sometimes the best option is to just go for a sprinkling of diamond without overkill as that means your spouse can get a plain gold band and they will still match like the perfect pair you are.
If you want your rings to reflect your day and have a permanent reminder of your wedding then have it engraved. Whether you choose a short verse that’s special to the two of you or have the date of your big day etched in so your husband-to-be can’t forget it you can have anything engraved. Designer Dominic Walmsley offers an Ancient Year ring (from £810) which cleverly combines the date of your marriage in roman numerals with some diamonds so you get the best of both worlds.
For an extra personal touch Damson jewellery offers a unique personal service with designer Hannah Louise Lamb’s coast rings (from £135). If there is a spot on the English coast line or a skyline that means the world to you then you can have the design in your ring. Each ring is hand cut and come in a range of finishes.
Obviously if you are getting married you are planning to be together forever so you need a ring that will stand the test of time. Your band of gold is important so budget for something special, equally though remember that there is always the eternity ring to come and your husband-to-be can save up for a sparkler in the years to come.
