What's The Deal With Wedding Bands?

January 23, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 154

For dozens of years now, a diamond ring is a symbol of engagement for a woman who is soon to be wed. After the man proposes with the ring, the woman wears it on her left ring finger. On her wedding day, she is then given a wedding band to signify that she is no longer engaged, but married, and will wear two rings on her left hand for the rest of her life.

Many women are choosing to go the traditional route, by having both an engagement ring and a wedding band, but some are not. The choice is really up to you. Simple solitaire engagement rings used to be paired with a simple, small gold band wedding ring, but in modern times there are a variety of options available. Some women even wear a double band, one on each side of the diamond ring, in order to have as much sparkle on their finger as possible.

There are three options for women when it comes to the wedding band question. Women must decide, along with their husband, which option is best for them. Both lifestyle and cost considerations should be added to the equation. Here, in my opinion are your best options:

A perfect match:

This is the simplest option if you want a wedding band. Diamond rings often come in sets, with a perfectly matched wedding band to add on your wedding day. The rings will fit together perfectly and will often cost you less than if you were to buy them separately.

A unique combination:

If the engagement ring of your choice is unique, you may not want or may not be able to find a perfectly matched set. Two coordinating rings can complement each other and even be worn apart giving your girl more options. Different can be really fun but our suggestion is to choose a band with the same metal and a complimentary shape and then have fun from there. It is probably better to pick something different enough to make it clear that the rings were not intended to match. In addition, putting off the purchase will give you time to save up for the band and will give her an opportunity to provide feedback.

A stand-alone ring:

Sometimes the diamond ring is enough. A wedding band may add too much bulk than some fine fingers can handle. Many brides are simply removing their engagement ring on the wedding day and having the groom place it on their finger again after 'I do'. This is a perfectly acceptable solution and also saves you from having to purchase an additional piece of jewelry.
