How the times have changed for new couples searching for wedding bands that they will wear forever. In past generations, couples were limited mostly to what the jewellery stores in their local areas had to offer. These days, we are privileged enough to have the world wide web that has literally extended our reach for purchasing wedding bands to the entire globe, far away from our personal home towns and chain jewellery stores. However, even with an unlimited scope, it can still be important to understand the best methods for choosing wedding bands. All You Need is Love The couple who shops together, stays together. Well, that may or may not be true, but you should absolutely shop together for your wedding bands. While it may be more traditional for the proposing partner to supply the engagement ring without asking for their mates opinion, the selection of the wedding bands that will represent your love forever is always a decision best made mutually. Take some time to sit down and browse through websites that offer the types of bands you are searching for. Making a Match - Or Not You will need to decide whether or not you will have matching bands. If so, you will save a lot of time by running searches for matching or paired wedding bands on your favourite jewellery sites. Most paired sets lean towards a unisex look in design and for this reason, many couples choose to go with their own unique options. The Bride may want a more feminine designed band while the Groom may prefer a plainer or thicker band. Don't Go Breaking My Heart - Or My Ring Your lifestyle should also factor in greatly in your decision on a wedding band. Your wedding band should accentuate your hand, not hinder it. If the Bride or Groom have jobs that require manual labour, they may want to consider the strength of the metal chosen for the ring. While more pure golds, such as 24 karats, have that rich yellow lustre so enjoyed by enthusiasts of this metal, it is also a much softer gold and much more easily damaged, scratched or broken, than a 14 or 10 karat band. Ladies or gents may want to consider a thicker, wider band if their hands often get banged up or scuffed around. For bands that include stones, if your job requires you to work with your hands or put them into any kind of machinery, you should consult with your jeweller to make sure you are getting the lowest or most flush possible setting on your jewels. I Do - Want to Enjoy the Experience of Selecting My Wedding Band Just because you are not face-to-face with your local jeweller doesn't mean you can't have a one-on-one, customized experience in your selection. Using a highly reputable jeweller with an excellent selection of wedding bands like Anton Jewellery, means that even from across the globe, you can thoroughly enjoy the experience of purchasing a piece of jewellery you will wear for the rest of your life.
