Clayton, St. Louis County
How to Choose the Perfect Wedding Bands, Clayton, Missouri

As you and your partner select wedding bands, you want pieces that are as beautiful as they are meaningful. From exploring material options to staying within your price range, there are several important factors to consider as you browse rings. Here are a few tips to help you make your decision. 

4 Tips for Choosing Wedding Bands

1. Decide How Much to Spend

You’ll have a much easier time selecting wedding rings if you know approximately how much you’d like to spend prior to arriving at the jewelry store. Look at pieces online and in catalogs to get an idea of the value of precious metals and gemstones you both like.

2. Get a Head Start

Planning your nuptials is hectic enough, so avoid the added stress of last-minute wedding band shopping. Give yourself plenty of time to try on different styles and sizes. Remember that you may need extra time for custom features or engraving. 

3. Match Styles With Your Partner

Consider coordinating rings with your partner based on metal, finish, stone, and design. For instance, you might go for two bands in the same metal color, one wider and one narrower, with similar finishes and the same inscription on the interior.

4. Keep It Simple & Practical

While engagement rings are typically a bit more elaborate, wedding bands are often understated. Go back to the basics. You’ll wear your wedding rings every day, so choose bands that are comfortable, practical, and fit your lifestyle.
