Whether you have just recently gotten engaged, plan to be, or have already taken that walk down the aisle, you may be wondering how you are supposed to be wearing your wedding band and engagement ring.
This is one of those questions that you may feel like you should intuitively know the answer, or may even feel a little sheepish about asking, and that’s okay, but this is a very common question and one of our favorite topics to educate and inspire couples on!
Until recently, mens’ wedding rings were something of an afterthought, and it’s not a surprise considering that it didn’t even become customary for men to regularly wear wedding bands until World War I. Since then, men’s wedding rings have typically been quite predictable and pretty consistent in their appearance and band material. There was some customization, but for the most part, the groom’s ring was a given, but it shouldn’t be, and thankfully this isn’t the case anymore!
Wedding season is almost upon us! Whether you're planning a wedding at a large venue with all of your friends and family (when things have calmed down and opened up again) or eloping with your significant other, you're going to need to get your wedding ring. Brides usually have a lot of questions about wedding bands that can complement their engagement ring, including a timeline for when they should get one given their wedding date. Our aim is to answer those questions for you.
Congratulations on your engagement! We're sure it was special and that the excitement of wedding planning is starting to set in. This is such a great season of life, and we hope you enjoy every moment.
It finally happened: you just got engaged and are now trying to plan your perfect wedding. In the midst of all the planning, you may have thought about what type of wedding band to get that would make the best match for your engagement ring.
You finally got your wedding ring and it is everything you have ever dreamed of! The diamond is clear and glistens, the band is shiny and smooth and makes your finger looks elegant. But most of all, the ring symbolizes the eternal love you have for your spouse. Your love is forever but your ring may not last forever. Like all material items, rings can go through some wear and tear. With time, your ring may not glisten or shine the way it did on your wedding day.
