A lot of couples are familiar with picking out their engagement ring. It signifies that they intend to spend the rest of their lives together. However, a lot of couples do not think about getting their wedding band until it is closer to the big day!
Picking out your wedding band is a different process from your engagement ring. With help from our wedding bands Omaha NE jewelry experts at 14 Karat, you will pick out a band you love in no time!
Narrow down your choices
The first step is to narrow down your choices and come in with a small idea of what you would like. This means making decisions like: do you want a matching wedding band with your significant other? Do you want it to conform to your engagement ring and match? Is this something you will want to stack in the future? This is your chance to get exactly what you want, so do not hesitate to make your opinion known or ask questions.
Consider the long term
When shopping for any type of jewelry, especially your wedding band, it can be easy to go with what is trendy. However, your wedding band is a ring that you will have for decades to come, so you should make sure that it is a style that is timeless.
Consider your lifestyle
Most people tend to wear their wedding band every single day, therefore it is important to consider your lifestyle (and how often you use your hands) when shopping for your ring. This is especially true if you want a wedding band that incorporates stones into it. Emeralds are more soft and susceptible to damage in harsh conditions. If you use your hands a lot, it would be better to choose a harder stone like a diamond. Sapphires and rubies also hold up well if you want a more colorful option.
Don’t be afraid to mix and match metals
While our wedding bands Omaha NE jewelry experts at 14 Karat traditionally see most couples choose the same metal wedding bands, there is no rule that you have to follow. If you would prefer a rose gold band and your partner a titanium one, that is fine! You can even mix and match metals with your own rings. Choose whatever suits you and your style!
Keep an open mind
While it is a good idea to come into the store with an idea of what you like, you should also come in with an open mind. This way if what you want isn't the best option, you won’t feel disappointed. It can also help to have an open mind if you and your partner have different opinions with how you would like your wedding bands to look. Browse different options and try on different styles and see what you like best.
