Wedding Planning Tips...
Choosing the perfect rings is high on every engaged couples to-do-list. Our friends at Boru Jewellery have very kindly shared with us their top tips for finding wedding rings you will both love.
Match Your Metals
Selecting your wedding ring made of the same metal as your engagement ring is vital in the long run. This is because all metals have different levels of hardness. If you mix the metals, the stronger metal will slowly wear aware the weaker metal. Our advice is always choose the same metal for your engagement and wedding ring.
Mix It Up
There's no rule that says you have to choose the same metal or even style wedding ring as your partner. Different metals suit different skin tones so by allowing flexibility when choosing your metals, both the bride and groom can select a metal that is best suited to them. The key to finding something you both love is choosing wedding bands that reflect your individual styles.
Diamonds are Forever
The most common diamond settings are pave set, channel set, grain set or scallop set. If your engagement ring has diamonds set into the band, we would recommend you choose a wedding ring where the diamonds are set in the same way. It complements the rings and makes them look like they’re a pair. We would also recommend matching the diamond quality on your wedding ring with those on your engagement ring.
Make it Unique
At Boru we understand how much sentimental value your wedding ring has. That’s why we offer engravings on as many of our products as possible; so you can personalise the rings in your own unique way.
Solo Wedding Ring
Many people can’t wear their engagement ring for work reasons. Therefore, we would highly recommend a wedding ring that matches an engagement ring but also looks well by itself. So, you should always try your wedding ring on without the engagement ring to see how it looks on its own.
If you are not sure of your ring size we strongly recommend you visit your local Jeweler. However, if you cannot get to a jeweller you can either use our ring size guide on our website or we can send you a Free Ring Sizer to ensure a perfect fit.
Make sure you start your ring search early, leaving you plenty of time to find your perfect your wedding rings. At Boru we would recommend ordering your wedding rings about three to four months before your wedding day however we have been known to craft a ring in less than 24 hours!
