Key Factors To Consider When Choosing A Wedding Band

  1. Set a budget upfront, which will help inform your options.
  2. Do some research into different styles of wedding bands that complement your engagement ring.
  3. Decide whether you would like to have a matching band with your partner.
  4. Keep in mind that there are no ‘rules’ when it comes to wedding bands and engagement rings. You don’t need to have a wedding band that matches your engagement ring if that’s not your personal style. In the end, it all comes down to personal choice.
  5. Consider how much of a hands-on lifestyle you lead. If you regularly use your hands (e.g. a nurse, mountain climbing, etc.) it might be best to look for a durable ring that will fit in with your active lifestyle.
  6. Keep in mind that different wedding bands require different amounts of care and professional cleaning. Trends may come and go, but marriage is a lifelong commitment.
  7. Choose a timeless wedding band and a style you would love to wear every day for now and forever.
  8. Determine your ring size. Certain rings are very difficult to resize, particularly if you’re opting for a Channel Setting, a Pavé, Micro Pavé, or Eternity band.
