Nothing ever beats the joy out of the yes that follows the question, "Will you marry me?" The elated feeling rushes through your body and you can sure see the same happening in the eyes of your loved one.
Some people think that the point where the couple snaps back to reality is when they undergo the taxing procedure of choosing wedding rings (that is provided that you have not brought that together with the engagement ring). However, this is not at all true. Especially if both of you have decided on buying antique wedding rings as a symbol of your old-fashioned, honest to goodness love love.
Here are some of the things you need to keep in mind when buying antique jewelry.
- Set a budget and stay within that budget. Some say that the rule to follow is that you should buy an engagement ring, which costs twice your monthly salary. Whatever "rule" you want to follow, just set a budget and stick with it.
- Discover what type of antique bands you'd want as a couple. Check out various websites for the jewelry styles of the different eras. Choosing together makes the whole experience less nerve-wracking.
- Check the condition of the antique wedding rings before buying them. If you are purchasing from a personal seller, ask him or her how they cared for the rings and what did they use to clean them.
- Lastly, enjoy spending this time with your loved one. Do not pressure yourselves and remember that you have your entire life to share these rings together so there is no rush.
