Aside the gown, the ring is the next most important part of the event. Actually, the exchange of the rings signifies the end of the wedding ceremony and the final seal of the agreement between the two. Whatever follows that event may be just entertainment and refreshment. When it comes to the choice of rings, the couple has a wide range to choose from. But it should also be remember that the ring is a symbol of love so there is much customization and personification that goes with it.
The first factor to consider in your choice of ring is the material. There are several makes including gold, platinum, diamond and silver. Your budget will determine which one to go for. But it needs be mentioned that some metals are more durable than others. For example gold is more durable than silver. Again, a gold ring will be fit a traditional or formal wedding and a platinum or silver one will match a casual wedding.
The color that you choose must also blend with the dress. A heavily adorned or accessorized bride must have a matching ring. In this case, a golden or platinum ring with intricate designs will be the best choice.
If you intend to engrave the ring, you must choose one with a wide band. These days computerized engravings allow the couple to write long lines of text, even paragraphs onto the ring. For electronic engraving, you need a ring with a large band so you can have all the text legibly written.
You should avoid buying a ring online even if you can tell your finger size right away. Measurements differ from merchant to merchant and again, rings may be slightly larger or smaller than their advertised size. For these reason, it is advisable to measure out the ring in person. A ring that fits too tight will hurt over the long term and one that is too loose will come off easily.
