5 tips on choosing wedding rings

Choose a wedding ring that suits you

Simple, very original, precious or semi-precious, single ring or set stone, your wedding ring must above all resemble you. The question of the budget is of course not to be neglected: you will have to define the amount you can and want to spend on your wedding rings.

Choosing your wedding ring in advance

It is best to plan several months in advance, so that you can be sure that your wedding rings will be ready and in your size on your wedding day. This is especially true if you ask for personalisation, such as engraving.

Choosing the right material

Gold is the traditional material for a wedding ring. This doesn’t mean that it has to be gold: white gold and rose gold are also available. Less expensive, silver and titanium are perfect for smaller budgets.

Choosing the right size

When it comes to size, make sure that the model is neither too loose nor too tight. Avoid trying on wedding rings when it is too hot, as your fingers will swell. Conversely, if you try on your ring on a cold day in winter, it may not fit you in summer…

Choosing a personalised wedding ring

In terms of style, it is no longer the time for a simple gold ring: for wedding rings, people dare to personalise them, with varying degrees of assertiveness or discretion. The finish can be polished, satin-finished, hammered, stippled or sandblasted; the reliefs are infinite and the finest inlays are nowadays made by jewellers. The wedding rings must reflect the personality of your couple but also the personality of each of you: you can choose identical rings, but not necessarily! You can play on complementarity, on a discreet harmony, or why not on two completely different models if they represent you well. In this respect, your tastes and desires must take precedence over tradition. Whatever model you choose, it is possible to personalise it with a text engraved on the inside: the date of the wedding, the other’s first name, but also a symbol or any other very personal message that inspires you and speaks to your couple.
