Things to Consider When Buying Wedding Bands

September 3, 2021

So, you have got engaged and now can’t wait to marry the person of your dreams, you are making plans, deciding the venue, calling event planners, and booking an appointment with dress designers.

But unfortunately, you are missing one thing. A perfect wedding ring!

We understand that planning a dream wedding is a daunting task for both partners. You need to take care of multiple things to make the event go smoothly. 

Especially when you had your engagement ring on your finger and now deciding which wedding ring could go together and make a perfect combination, you feel quite overwhelmed yet thrilled- after all, it’s going to be the best day of your life and you don’t want to spoil it with choosing a bad wedding band.

In short, all the wedding arrangements could give you a headache at times, however, finding a perfect wedding ring shouldn’t have to be.

Together with Provence Gems experts, specialists can help you choose the right wedding band that complements well with your engagement ring. With different types and shapes of diamond and their cut, color, clarity, and carat features, experts can help you choose the right wedding bands that exude quality, perfection, beauty, and luxury- and most importantly suits well on your finger.

Deciding a budget should be your key:

First things come first. You need to be sure about the amount you spend on your wedding band.

There are different types of wedding rings that match every budget and personality. You can buy high-quality wedding rings at affordable prices like this 0.45ctw Classic Round Moissanite Eternity Ring Band is available between $147-$277 that features a bezel set moissanite and looks like a wonderful choice for your dream wedding.

However, if you want to opt for the more affordable choice, you can choose plain gold bands that are available for just $125 to $200 per band. They also look great but sometimes cheap as well.

If you want to go for more precious metals, such as platinum, you need to get ready to pay $400 or $600 per band. 

According to the Diamond Information Center, the average cost of a wedding band is around $742. 

If you are planning to engrave the internal area of the wedding band, it would cost you around $1-8 per character- which sometimes depends upon the font you select and the method you choose for engraving.

Choose the style and metal of your ring:

Have you ever considered a style and metal ring before purchasing or just go with anything that looks elegant? 

Well, you should choose the metal and style carefully as this would be the only piece of jewelry that you two buy together with such thrill and excitement. So just take your time to talk about it and decide what should be the style of your ring. Decide whether it should be white, rose, gold, or yellow metal?

Many people love to choose yellow gold because it looks perfect with the dress and other jewelry items due to its matching color. However, in the case of your husband-to-be, he should complement white gold with his watch to make a perfect combination. 

When you choose styles that are popular in trend, you could easily end up buying the lovely pieces for your wedding. The simple thing is, find the rings that have a blend of both white and yellow gold so you can match them with your accessories as well.

When you decide on the metal for your ring, the next thing is to decide whether you want gems or diamonds? Which could be a perfect choice for you as a couple?

Don’t wait for too long:

When it comes to buying wedding bands, do not wait for too long.

It’s better to start looking for your wedding bands at least 2-3 months before your special day.

Do not rush while buying a ring, as this is going to be your one-time investment.

So, take your time and decide wisely which could be a better option for your partner. Reconsider every option and element. 

Especially if you want to get a custom piece for your bride-to-be, then it’s important to order 3 months before the wedding. Because it may take more than 30 days to get an engraved ring.

Always keep your lifestyle in mind before purchasing a ring:

There is no point in spending tons of money on the ring that you don’t like in the long run or just feel the need to remove it after some time. When you buy the ring, you should keep in mind that this ring is going to be on your finger forever.

So, it’s better to choose a ring that perfectly fits your finger and life without causing any disruption. Also, do not consider buying wide chunky bands if your lifestyle involves some complex physical activity. Instead, it’s better to go for thinner bands that do not irritate you while performing any physical activity.

If you use your hands a lot for work, it’s best to choose any simple design, rather than a heavy diamond ring with lots of gems engraved. Because it may continually trap dirt which badly impacts the look of your ring. 

If the combination of metals causes any allergic reaction to your skin, it’s recommended to go for platinum rings. They are a bit expensive but undoubtedly the best choice. The metal contains pure and hypoallergenic elements, so it will be good in the long run.

Do not forget to choose the right size:

We saw many people who do not prefer to take off their wedding rings after some time, even when they go through different tough times such as pregnancies, exercise, or menstruation. 

These tough conditions make fingers swell and they contract from harsh temperatures such as heat and cold. So, when it comes to buying a ring, be smart about choosing the right size. Measure the size properly with the help of a size chart or ask your partner to give her old ring for accurate measurement.


Be sure to check the quality:

Well, it seems to be an obvious fact, but sometimes people make mistakes in identifying the quality of the ring and often get trapped by the external shine and look. So, the most important thing before purchasing your wedding band is, check the quality of the piece. 

In the internal area of the ring, there is a shank and there are some markings. 

Also be sure to check the trademark of your manufacturer and find out what metal they incorporated whether it’s gold, silver, or platinum. 

Moreover, the wedding band has three markings. If the manufacturer has used multiple metals in constructing the ring, always check for the quality mark of each metal.

Take care of its cleaning:

Buying a ring and wearing it all the time is simply not enough if you are not taking care of its cleanliness. If your ring has no stones, rub it gently with some soft and lint-free cloth.

If it gets tarnished, you can clean it with a soap solution and add water with a couple of drops of ammonia. Dip a soft brush into that solution and then clear all the tarnish with a brush. Make sure you also use the drain plug, rinse your ring with cold water and dry it with a soft cloth.

Protect the rings:

As compared to other jewels, you need to take good care of your finger-hugging valuables because they are more vulnerable to damage. If you want to reduce the damage, protect your rings by following special tips.

  • Do not wear the ring if you are doing some heavy or rough work. 
  • If you are doing sports, make sure you put it off as the hard sports item can cause scratches and damages.
  • Do not wear the ring if you are using some chemical work as concentrated chlorine is present in bleaches and swimming pool disinfectants that can cause fading or discoloration. 

According to research, matte finishes usually show different scratches as compared to rough finishes. Especially platinum is softer than gold, so damages, scratches, and nicks appear easily. 

Luckily, if you choose a reliable manufacturer or jeweler, he can help you restore the ring to its real splendor as it efficiently reapplies or changes the finish.

Wear the jewelry with confidence:

It’s recommended to not take off your ring as you might lose it within minutes. 

When you buy the ring, make sure you don’t have to remove it more often for everyday tasks like cooking or showering. It’s also better to make some designated place for the ring where you can easily place it when you want to remove it. 

Another important suggestion is, keep the ring out of your pocket as it might get dropped suddenly. Also, keep it away from sinks. Maybe your cat ends up dropping it down the drain.

Removing the ring while traveling to some distant place is the most dangerous thing. Because when you travel, you are more likely to forget it or lose it. 


We hope that now you understand all the tips and tricks before purchasing your wedding rings. So, when the right time comes, follow all the suggestions and yes, do not forget to bring them to your wedding and put them in the trusted hands.
