Ahh…engagement bliss. You found The One. There was a proposal. Celebrations ensued. Fun was had. Now, it’s go time. Wedding planning time. Maybe you’ve been in the thick of wedding preparations for months or maybe you’ve just begun. Either way, at some point you’ll need to choose wedding bands. Wedding band shopping can be one of the most enjoyable parts of your engagement or it can be a torture that has you deeply questioning your life choices. Take it easy on yourself by shopping for couples wedding rings with Jordan Jack. To help you get started, we’ve compiled some handy tips so you’ll love your wedding ring shopping almost as much as you love your spouse-to-be.
To Match or Not to Match
To match or not to match, that is the question…oh wait, that’s not how it goes. Regardless, it’s probably the first thing you should consider when thinking about and choosing your couples wedding rings.
Some feel that matching rings are symbolic of unity, harmony, and the perfect match between two people in love. Matching rings carry a sense of oneness and synchrony. Others feel that having perfectly matched rings stifles their own individuality and freedom of expression. They may see non-matching rings as symbolic of the yin and yang of their relationship or a great way to represent the attraction of opposites. Or, and hear us out – they may simply have very different tastes.
If you can’t decide between matching vs non-matching wedding bands, you may consider choosing rings that complement each other but don’t necessarily match. You can find rings that look alike but come in different widths, metals, or colors, or that have similar details that look as great together as you and your fiancé.
There’s no rule that says you have to match and there’s no rule that says you can’t; make your own rules and choose whatever feels right for you. Whatever choice you make, the most important thing is that you both love your rings. You’ll be wearing them for the rest of your lives so choose wedding bands that you’ll love today, tomorrow, and every day after.
Once you’ve decided whether your couples wedding bands will match or not match it’s time to think about what style you’d like. Are you an old soul who loves a vintage vibe, a timeless, classic sort who wants a ring that will never go out of fashion, or do you swerve toward modern and contemporary designs that showcase your of-the-moment sensibilities? No matter your type you can find wedding bands to suit your unique taste.
It’s the little things that make a ring memorable and that speak to us when we’re shopping for just the right one. If you love sparkle, diamonds are just the thing for your ring. Channels, ridges, and grooves can take a band from ordinary to extraordinary. Bold pops of color offer a chance to stand out among the crowd. Rounded or contoured edges, step edges, and beveled edges all add visual interest. Carbon fiber inlays, inner band details, milgrain patterns, and two-tone styling are all small ways to make your ring stand out.
Metals come in many finishes and each offers a different way to make your ring your own. Satin and brush finishes are elegant alternatives to the classic high polish of traditional wedding rings. If tradition is your thing, the high polish styles are timeless and will always be en vogue.
Scratch and matte finishes are great choices for modern wedding bands, while textured or hammered finishes are eye catching and unique. Some rings offer more than one finish, providing contrast and detail to otherwise simple designs. All of these finish choices give you opportunities to make your couples wedding bands more personal.
Width of Band
If you love the idea of matching rings but can’t find ones that complement your hands as well your significant others, consider buying matching rings in different widths. Wedding ring bands often come in various widths so you can find a ring that will suit you both without giving up the matching aspect. For bigger hands and broader fingers wide and medium bands look great. Smaller hands often look best in narrow bands. Try several widths to find the one that looks and feels just right.
Gold, silver, and platinum have been the reigning kings of wedding band metals for as long as anyone can remember, but why should those guys get all the glory? Traditional metals will always have their place but other metals are edging their way in to have their moment in the sun. Modern metals like tungsten, titanium, stainless steel, tantalum, and cobalt often offer better durability and can give you another way of showcasing your unique taste.
Now we get to the best part…making your couples wedding bands one of a kind and personalized to you and your partner. Engraving your rings makes them extra special and lets you keep a personal message close at hand and heart. Inscribed on the inner band, an engraving is like a special secret between you and your love. You can choose anything you want for your inscription; an inside joke, heartfelt message, declaration of love, or a promise of your never-ending devotion. The possibilities are endless so the biggest challenge will be narrowing down your choices!
