There are lots of things to think about when you are planning a wedding and it can sometimes be overwhelming and stressful. Keeping organized is crucial so that you can make sure that you don’t forget any little details. One of the most important things that you will have to organize is both of your wedding rings. This can be quite stressful for many people as this piece of jewelry is going to be worn by you every day, so you need to make sure that it is something that you love. You may also want a particular style or you may want matching designs with your partner, so you need to make sure that choosing your wedding ring is done early in the planning process, usually, this is done at least three months prior to your wedding day.
As with most aspects of wedding planning, when you are thinking about buying your rings, the most important thing to consider is what your budget is going to be. Once you have decided on your budget this will help you when looking at the different materials and stones available. It can be really easy to go over your budget, so make sure that you don’t overspend and try to keep within the budget that you have set yourself.
Another thing to think about when buying your wedding rings is if you want your rings to be matching or made from matching materials. This may impact what material you choose to have. One of the most popular materials is platinum with white gold a close second, although both of these options are quite expensive. You could choose to have just a plain gold or silver ring made, or if you do have a really low budget, you may opt for titanium which is a relatively cheap material.
It’s not just the women’s rings that feature a gemstone; you can also choose to have gemstones within the male design too. The main thing to remember is that this is something that is personal to you and something that you will be wearing every day, so you need to make sure that you are happy with the design you choose.
If you have your heart set on a gemstone in your wedding ring, there are lots of stones out there for you to choose from. Again, the budget will play a part in this, as some are more expensive than others. If your budget has no limits, you may want to opt for a diamond instead of a gemstone, but this is down to personal choice. If you have a smaller budget, a gemstone is a perfect way to add some glamour. Some people just don’t like diamonds too, so again a gemstone is the ideal alternative.
This is a beautiful purple stone and looks lovely cut in a piece of jewelry. Although they are not as hard as a diamond, they are still quite durable and would be perfect on a wedding ring band. Amethyst also has lots of healing properties and is a very protective, healing, and purifying stone.
Sapphires are typically blue-colored stone; however, they also come in peach, pink, yellow and green too. They are the third hardest mineral, but at a fraction of the price of diamonds so they would make an ideal stone for a wedding ring, despite it not providing quite as much sparkle like a diamond.
Pearls are a very beautiful stone and have a degree of elegance and class about them, making them a good choice as a wedding ring stone. Despite their beauty, if you are looking for a hard-wearing stone, unfortunately, pearls are quite fragile and scratch easily, so you will need to take good care of them especially if you are wearing them every day. You could opt to have a pearl surrounded by harder gemstones which will protect it.
Topaz comes in a variety of colors and is quite a common stone for an engagement or wedding ring, due to being quite a hard mineral that will be quite hard wearing. A pure topaz has no colour, and the colors that you see in any are usually created by imperfections within the stone.
We loved Onyx and it’s a stone that can come in a variety of colours, however the most common is black. This would make a really unique stone for your wedding ring, and with its relatively hard density, it would make it durable and hard wearing. This would create a timeless piece of jewelry.
