The bride may be the central attraction of a wedding as she leaves the house of her parents and enters a new home to live with her husband, but that does not mean the groom should take a back seat. It is his wedding too, after all; and he deserves as much affection and attention as his better-half. While the bride gets a lot of jewelry items as gifts from parents and close family members, the only item that a groom prefers to show off is his wedding ring.
Most men don’t like to spend a lot of time doing jewelry shopping. If your husband is very busy with his work, then it’s your duty as his future wife to pick a ring that he will wear for the rest of his life. If you are confused, then here are some tips that will help you buy the most beautiful wedding ring for your partner.
Fix a budget: The first thing you need to do is to decide how much you are going to spend for the wedding band. If you are paying for it alone, then your budget could be low, but if your husband is bearing 50% of the cost then you may pick something more expensive. However, please remember that wedding is not just about buying a ring because the total expenditure of the wedding could be really high considering the price of wedding gown, decoration, and catering.
As soon as you enter the jewelry shop, it is wise to tell the jeweler about your budget so that he can show you only the best items within your budget. In case you are buying the ring from an e-commerce website, you can select the price range to filter the men’s wedding band search results.
Get the right size: It is a disaster if you buy a ring that looks great but smaller or bigger than the finger size of your spouse. The ideal way to pick the right size is to ask your soon-to-be husband if he has any other ring and take it with you at the jewelry shop so that they can measure it and help you choose the perfect fit for his finger.
Match his personality: Wedding rings come in different designs and metals and both need to be considered during the selection process. For example, if your spouse is involved in manual labor, it is wise to select a hard metal for him such as tungsten instead of gold. Similarly, if he is flamboyant in nature then you should invest your money in a funky design.
It should complement your wedding ring: When you two will go out, your wedding rings should display your personality and unity as a married couple. It does not have to match your ring’s design; instead, it should complement it. For instance, both bride and groom can buy rose gold rings or they may have a diamond in both rings. This way, the harmony of your married life will be presented in a classy style.
Nothing is more satisfactory that buying a ring for your husband and then giving it to him on the wedding day. The smile on his face and sparkle in his eyes will be an everlasting memory.
