Wedding rings symbolize a union of two hearts and serve as a constant reminder that you are married. Women, take time to look at many different styles of wedding rings before you choose one since it’s even more important than the dress you wear to your wedding. Men, it’s important for you to try on different styles as well because you’re most likely not used to wearing a ring and it needs to feel comfortable for every day wear. If you’re not used to wearing a ring on your finger, you will get used to it after a month or two.
Check Out Various Styles of Wedding Rings
Since each of us has our own individualistic taste of wedding rings, it’s up to you to choose something that you really like. You could either match the wedding ring to your engagement ring, or have it look strong enough as it’s own design to be worn on any finger. It is not necessary to wear identical wedding rings, but remember that they are something to be guarded well, as they will someday perhaps be passed onto your children!
Watch the video below about the 4 main styles of wedding rings:
History of Wedding Rings
The circle of the ring symbolizes the fact that love is forever and should be unbroken. The wedding ring has been worn on the fourth finger from Roman times, since the vein “vena amoris” in this finger is directly connected to the heart. In early days, it was also believed that weddings were conducted to connect important families when they symbolized this solemn occasion by exchanging valuables – as a form of security – thereby ensuring that the couple was economically well placed.
Decide on the Type of Rings
Wedding rings are generally made in gold or platinum, as well as newer metals such as titanium, tungsten, or stainless steel, which are gaining popularity. Some may opt to include diamonds or precious stones such as a sapphire. You could also engrave your names, initials or wedding date inside your wedding rings. Vanessa Nicole Jewels offers complimentary engraving on all our rings. Because our wedding rings are custom made just for you, it’s best to select your rings a few months in advance so there is plenty of time to create them to your specifications. No need to be stressing about this a few weeks before the wedding when you’ll have a lot more on your plate. This will also allow enough time to resize them, if necessary, before the wedding day.
Caring for Your Rings on the Big Day
Look after your wedding rings carefully and decide how you would like them to be presented on your wedding day. You could get your ring bearer to carry it on a special pillow or you could give the best man the honor of carrying the wedding rings and handing them to both of you.
Vanessa Nicole Jewels provides a complimentary cherry wood lacquered double ring box, which our clients typically use to hold their rings. Some clients have written in their testimonial about how much they love our ring box! Vanessa Nicole even used the company’s ring box (see picture to the right) for her own wedding! One last note: If your wedding rings and engagement ring have significant monetary value, it’s wise to insure them for their replacement value. Studies on the subject of wedding rings indicate that almost 1 out of 4 newlyweds tend to lose their ring within the first 5 years of marriage. Some even lose them on their honeymoon when swimming! Though most of your accessories will compliment the wedding dress, remember that wedding rings are something that will be worn every single day after you are married so give it due consideration and make sure you choose a style that you’ll love and treasure.
