The wedding ring is the ultimate symbol of the couple’s union and their vow of being faithful to each other. It is worn on the couple’s left ring finger because of an ancient belief that it had a vein that led directly to the heart.
One of the first steps that a couple takes before their wedding is buying a wedding ring for each of them. This is an important step because they are choosing something that will symbolize their union throughout the rest of their lives.
Here are some tips on buying a wedding ring for couples who are looking for one.
1. Unlike engagement rings, wedding rings do not need to look fancy. Most wedding rings are simple bands with very little design on the surface. Besides, grooms have already broken the bank in buying the engagement ring, so he might as well find rings that will fit not only his and his future bride’s fingers, but also his now depleted budget.
2. Couples usually choose to engrave their names or a simple statement inside their wedding bands. While most jewelers offer this service for free or include this already in the bill, the couple should check out first if this is the case in their jewelry shop of choice.
3. The couple should also be aware of the average prices of different precious metals so they can choose what will fit their budget. This is to prevent couples from adjusting their budget to the price rather than the other way around.
