With This Ring

We've all heard the words "With this ring, I thee wed as a token of my love and devotion...."  but what about the process of choosing that ring? Everyone wants their wedding ring to be different, unique, a one and only piece of jewelry that symbolizes your special relationship.

Here are some tips I found to help you along the way and a few unique wedding rings to help guide you in thinking outside of the box.

  1. Know YOUR Budget  The standard rule is two months salary – but – this is also a rule that the diamond industry created! However it's still a decent place to start, but then figure out your personal budget.
  2. Pay Attention Platinum or gold? Modern or traditional? Flashy or understated? It's easier if you've done your homework beforehand.
  3. Choose a Stone The most classic shape is a round solitaire. More homework – read The Four Cs of Diamond Buying. You'll thank me later. Another money saving tip – look for a diamond with high color and cut, but with slightly lower clarity. Make sure you look at the stone with a jeweler's loupe (like a magnifying glass) – but most flaws (or "inclusions") can barely be seen even with a loupe.
  4. Choose the Setting After you've got your stone, then comes the setting. You could go for simple with a solitaire setting, or you could add filigree, extra side stones, and other details. You can choose gold, white or rose gold, platinum, or even titanium.
