Getting engaged is one of the most important times in your life. However, choosing the perfect wedding ring is just as significant. There are many factors to take into consideration when choosing a wedding ring: lifestyle, overall look, cost, etc. For me, it was relatively easy to choose exactly what I wanted, but it is important to know that there is no rule when it comes to choosing a band. It should be a decision that you and your partner make together. Wear what you love and don’t let others dictate the decisions that you make.
I was presented with a custom two tone white and rose gold engagement ring when I got engaged. It’s exactly what I had envisioned. For me, I chose to have two wedding rings that I can mix and match with the engagement ring depending on the day and my liking. I chose a 2mm domed wedding ring made from 18 karat rose gold. I wear this ring on its own if I am planning on having a busy day. For instance, I went to a concert a couple of weeks ago and wore my plain ring on its own so that I would not have to worry about losing my engagement ring or having it snag on someone at the concert, as it was a metal show and I had general admission floor tickets. I also wear my plain band with my engagement ring on a regular basis because I love the classic, clean look.
My second wedding ring is a custom u pave eternity ring that is also 2mm wide. I love this ring because it adds a little bit of sparkle without overwhelming or taking anything away from my engagement ring. I love to wear this ring in-between my engagement ring and my plain band, but I also wear it only with the plain band, or alone with my engagement ring.
I love having options, but as I said, there is no right or wrong way to choose the ideal band for you.
