What do I need to think about before buying wedding rings?

Your choice of wedding ring is something that depends on many factors. Does it fit with your existing engagement ring design? Which metal does it need to be? Do you want a classic band or channel set diamonds? How thick do you want the band to be? Does it need to match with your other half to be's choice? Not every couple chooses to have his and hers wedding rings, due to personal taste and professions. We often find that brides prefer a diamond wedding ring, whilst the groom prefers a plain wedding ring. With so much to consider, it is best to take a look at all of your options and narrow it down according to the questions above. Use your engagement style as a starting point, then whittle it down by metal (white gold, platinum, rose gold etc), before considering diamond shape - solitaire wedding rings are the most popular diamond style.

What is the best metal for wedding rings?

Platinum - The most popular choice for a wedding ring due to its hardness, rarity and naturally white sheen. Platinum rings are ideal for those who work in physical roles as they are durable, strong and naturally hypo-allergenic.

Palladium - Palladium falls under the same metal family as platinum and is a naturally white metal which maintains it’s natural white sheen. Palladium is a great option for those who want a durable wedding ring at a lower price point.

White Gold - White Gold is known for providing the perfect complimentary backdrop for diamonds. White gold rings are plated with rhodium in order to protect the metal while adding to it’s beautiful white sheen. However, Rhodium wears away over time so will require re-plating time to time to keep your white gold ring looking it’s very best.

Yellow Gold - Yellow gold is often seen as the traditional choice for wedding rings. The strength and colour of the ring depends on the carat of the metal and is seen as a warmer variation to white gold.

Rose Gold - Rose gold has become an increasingly popular choice for wedding rings in recent years due to it’s romantic pink tones. Like yellow gold, the colour and hardness of the ring will depend on what carat you choose.
