With This Ring

Choosing Your Wedding Rings

So you are engaged and you can finally go longer than 5 minutes without staring at your shiny new ring, but it is time to think about your wedding bands.  Do you plan to pick out your husband's band on your own, or go together? What type of metal or style would he like, as there are more options than one might think!  If your engagement ring came as a set with a matching band then you are all set other than deciding if you want to solder your rings together or not.  If your engagement ring was not part of a set, you can check with your jeweler to see if there is a matching band or decide if you may want to have a band custom made.

Diamond Wedding Bands There is also a trend of just wearing a band rather than an engagement ring and wedding band, which is a nice option for women who work with their hands a lot and want to keep things more simple.  { Image courtesy of Brides.com } Of course, you could choose not to solder your wedding ring and engagement ring, wearing both or just one or the other if you would like.

Now when it comes time to choose your groom's band there are some things to consider: - Budget - Lifestyle (Type of work, if rough on hands will need a stronger metal) - Metal Type: (Gold, Silver, Platinum, Tungsten Carbide, Tungsten & Palladium) - Style, men's bands have evolved into some very stylish options! metaltypes
