When it comes to choosing a wedding band, there are lots of different factors to consider. Unlike most jewelry, a wedding band is intended for decades of daily wear. The jewelers from Allurez, one of the best jewelry stores in New York City, know that there are a few questions you should ask yourself before choosing a wedding band:
- Do you intend on taking your ring off for different activities? Some people choose delicate wedding bands, like designs that have pave diamonds, with the intention of taking them off frequently for activities like hand washing, cooking, working out, etc. While this works well for some people, others prefer to keep their ring on all the time. If you want to keep your wedding band on for most activities, choose a design that won’t be easily damaged.
- Will you ever wear your wedding band without your engagement ring? Many women choose wedding bands to match their engagement rings, but forget to look at how the band looks alone. If you have an engagement ring with a high setting or delicate detail-work, odds are you might want to have the option of wearing your wedding band on its own. Try wedding bands both with and without your engagement ring on.
- What type of metal do you prefer? Different types of metals have different properties, and it’s good to learn a little bit about what you like before you go shopping. Some people choose titanium or palladium because they’re lightweight, sturdy, and inexpensive. Other people choose gold for its beauty despite its higher cost and more fragile nature; and others still select unusual materials like wood or rings with stone inlays. It’s up to you!
