Putting A Ring On It! by Blissfulplans: 8:40am On May 21, 2020

Your wedding ring is the most precious piece of jewelry you will own for the rest of your life. It is the reminder of that one joyous day in your life which commenced your life in union with your partner. Since you will be wearing it every day, you want it to be comfortable, foremost. It will glow brighter on your finger if it is in sync with your style and character. You must also keep in mind the budget you set aside for your ring.

Most weddings these days see the bride and groom exchanging rings after their vows. However, close to sixty years ago, it was only the women who wore rings to signify lifelong love and devotion to their spouse. Modern wedding culture has turned that act into a mutual exchange of love, commitment and devotion. The gesture is progressive in nature. But it adds the cost of two rings to your budget. Hence, it is necessary to lay down your budget in such a way that it accommodates these expenses.

It is also not uncommon for the bride to choose a style that matches or compliments her engagement ring.


For the longest time, the traditional plain, gold ring has been prominent in weddings. It is an eternal style. If you are simplistic and minimal, this ring is the best fit for you. To incorporate minimum amount of design in your gold, you can look for white gold jewelry. It comes with stones that give the ring that extra-fancy look, but the band is as minimal as it can get.

Something that is on the rise and in vogue is silver jewelry. It is cheaper than the classic gold and has more variety in terms of designs. The market for silver is eight times bigger than the market for gold. That accounts for the plethora of patterns available.

Platinum is a good choice if you want to go for sturdiness. It is known for its sturdiness and durability. Platinum rings do not have any external coating, hence there is next to wear and tear. It will look as pristine as it did on the day of your wedding. It tends to be a little more expensive than usual wedding rings. However, it can be considered a worthy investment, since you mean to keep your wedding ring for a lifetime.


This is definitely a personal choice. There are many ring styles out there. You can go from a thin, dainty wedding to a chunky, evident one. The dainty style is suggested for long, thin fingers, as the chunky one tends to look overbearing. However, that is only a suggestion.

Typically, there are four wedding types of wedding rings. They are: halo, classic, solitaire and vintage. Halo focuses on a center-stone (a diamond) surrounded by smaller diamonds that reflect light in such a manner that the main stone is the focus. It is encased by a thin band. A classic ring features a thin band with small diamonds on a quarter of the band. A solitaire ring is probably the most heard of. It consists of a big center-stone (a diamond) surrounded by a proportionate band.

A vintage wedding ring does not have any defined meaning. To understand it better, we can say that it is a customized style. If your ancestor left you a stone from his or her time, you can take it to a jeweler and have a custom band made to fit the stone. You cannot determine the price of this kind of ring at a glance. However, you provide the stone, so it is relatively cheaper. This will not work in your favour if you want matching rings for you and your fiancé, however.

Halo and classic styles are on the daintier end of the spectrum, while solitaire and vintage are heavily studded. Go for a style that is in sync with your character. You might want to balance the look of your finger by going for a light wedding ring if your engagement ring is full, or vice versa.

In the end, you need to make sure that your ring falls in line with your values, style and budget. Investing in a pricy object seems fine, as this is something you will keep for a lifetime. Avoid the mistake of going for same rings just for the sake of. You can pick beautiful, different stones and a similar band to enhance the link between yours and your fiancé’s ring. In the end, it is your special day, and your ring is going to have immeasurable emotional value, no matter what the monetary value.
