6 Tips To Finding Your Perfect Wedding Ring And Save Some Money

It is said a wedding band has no beginning or end, which represents the boundless love and devotion that a marriage provides. With such massive responsibility tasked to a tiny ring, it’s no wonder shopping for the perfect ring can be stressful for bride and groom.

However, the right guidance makes this tradition not only hassle-free, but save you cash in the process. Below you will find six tips that will help your search for the perfect wedding ring.

1.) Know your size!

This will not only save a lot of back and forth sizing and resizing but it can help cut those costs. Knowing your correct size is the first piece of information needed when buying your ring. WeddingBands.com offers a free ring sizing kit to anyone who wants to size their finger from home.

A proper fit for a ring is for the ring to go on with ease, and come off with some resistance. The ring should be comfortable on your finger, but if you’ve never worn a ring before, it may take a couple of days to get used to the ring.

2.) Comfort fit vs. Non-Comfort Fit.

The differences between comfort fit and non-comfort fit rings are minuscule in features but massive in characteristics. Comfort fit wedding rings are about a millimeter thicker all around the ring and have a curved edge to them so less of your finger makes contact with metal.

This modification makes a world of difference in weight, price, and comfort. Comfort fit bands are heavier rings to achieve the desired effect. The extra metal means that the rings are heavier, more costly and more comfortable, which is more so the wider the ring.

A non-comfort fit ring will save you money, if you are on a budget.

3.) Find the metal that fits your style and feel.

Everything that sparkles in jewelry is not gold. While the vast majority of wedding rings still sold are made of precious metals like gold and platinum. Recently alternative metals such as palladium, titanium, tungsten, and stainless steel have increased in popularity.

Both traditional and alternative metals have their benefits and detriments. Gold, palladium, and platinum will last longer, while titanium, tungsten, and steel are budget friendly alternatives.

The material your ring is made of can determine not only the cost, but also the weight, color, and overall style. Whether you want a shiny, brilliant or a dull, matte look your metal choice will play a large part in this. Another piece to this is the finish of the metal.

4.) Know the metal finish that best fits your style.

Every ring style can an infinite number of looks just by changing the finish of the metal. The finish can range from a basic high polish to a hammered finish and everything in between.

A wedding ring’s style can be customized through the metal’s finish. A matte, sandblasted finish can make a plain ring more dramatic. A Florentine or brushed finish can ensure small scratches never show. Look through all the possible finishes and talk to your jeweler to ensure they understand the look you want.

5.) Know your diamonds and the 4Cs.

Usually you would see this tip for engagement rings. However, diamonds in wedding rings are seeing a resurgent in the last 5 years so it is important to know what kind of diamonds you are buying.

The 4Cs of diamond buying are simple enough in concept; color, cut, clarity, and carat. Details of each get confusing due to fact that we assign massive value difference to tiny differences in rocks.

To keep it simple for your sanity follow this simple guide. Everything VS in clarity or better looks the same to the naked eye. Some jewelers use lower clarity and charge the same as though they are higher clarity. Make sure you know what you are buying.

You cannot tell the difference between colors H to D when set in a ring. The cut of a diamond is the shape, symmetry, and polish the diamond is, which in smaller diamonds are less of a factor. Just make sure it is the shape you want it to be. Carat is the weight of a diamond and total carat is the total weight of all the diamonds in the ring.

6.) Make sure to value features of a retailer before making a decision.

You can buy the same ring at two retailers for the same price. If one retailer offers free delivery, ring sizing, lifetime warranty, a return policy, a ring box, and an appraisal with the purchase, and the other does not, they are not equal in value.

Make sure when you buy your ring that the retailer include ALL of these features. It will save you time, money, and headache. Most established, well-known retailers will supply their customers all of these.
