A symbol of everlasting love.
Your wedding ring is a symbol of your everlasting love and commitment to your partner. It is a piece of jewellery that you will wear for the rest of your life, so it is important to choose one that you love and that reflects your personal style.
Wedding rings have been worn to signify commitment for thousands of years. The first wedding rings were used in ancient Egypt over 6,000 years ago. The wedding band and engagement ring are placed together on the fourth finger of the left hand because the Romans believed there was a vein that ran directly to the heart - the Vena Amoris, or "the vein of love." The wedding band is a symbol of everlasting love with no beginning and no end.
Today, wedding rings come in a variety of styles, from simple and classic to elaborate and modern. You can choose a ring made from a variety of metals, including gold, platinum, silver, and palladium. You can also choose a ring with or without gemstones. Some popular gemstones for wedding rings include diamonds, sapphires, rubies, and emeralds.
No matter what style of wedding ring you choose, make sure that it is something that you love and that you will be proud to wear for the rest of your life. Your wedding ring is a symbol of your love and commitment, and it is something that you will cherish for years to come.
Start Your Ring Search Early
Start 2-3 months before the wedding date to buy/create your wedding ring. The earlier the better. You want to make sure it fits and you get something that you want. It is something that you will be wearing the rest of you life.
Also to make sure you get you know your ring size!
Sometimes the wedding bands budget gets overlooked in wedding planning. A lot of people leave this last minute.
The more personalised the rings are, the budget in increases.
For example, two bespoke rings in precious metal will be around £900-1000.
Size of Wedding Ring
If you already have an engagement ring, you'll need to decide whether you want the two rings to match in size/width.
It is also important also to consider the combined width of the two rings, to ensure that they will be comfortable to wear together (contour together)- without having big gaps.
As a general rule, the larger your hands, the wider the ring that will suit you. Usually we find that most ladies choose wedding rings between 2mm and 3mm wide, and most gentlemen opt for wedding rings of 4mm-6mm.

Wedding Ring Styles
It would be good to narrow down your ring style choices.
Think about the shape of the wedding style and ring profile.
Often the most popular profile, it's rounded and the inside and outside for ultimate comfort.
The second most popular fit where the ring lies flat on the inside but rounded on the outside - making a D shape.
Flat Court Style
A modern approach to a standard court fit. Designed for maximum comfort, flat courts are rounded inside and square off.
Ideal to sit with another ring, this curved look is often described as 'wishbone' ring and would compliment an engagement ring.
