That is why one should always buy a ring that will remain relevant even after the years of marriage. So, when you start planning for your wedding you need to learn the basics of buying a ring from the market.

The very first thing that you have to decide is the style of the ring you are going to wear. You should give top most importance to the comfort because you will not be able to resist yourself from taking the ring from the finger if it is not comfortable to wear. Even though we buy different type of rings, plain rings never go out of fashion or style. Most likely, you can rest knowing that plain gold rings are going to be around for years to come. If you do not like plain rings, you may choose for engraved ring or a ring that has beaded edge. As an alternative, you may also choose to buy a diamond ring in channel set style. The real point is that you should choose a ring that will surely reflect your unique style and personality.

When it comes to making a choice of the metal for the wedding rings, you may choose gold, silver or platinum. If the bride has chosen silver for most of her jewelry, then the ring should also be silver based. If the groom wears the golden watch, then gold should be opted as base metal. Here again you may choose any one from the yellow gold or white gold. Yellow gold is most common of all the precious metals used for wedding rings. Of course it all depends on the increasing quality of purity and softness yellow gold can be 14K, 18K or 24K respectively. Nevertheless, most people avoid buying 24 Karat gold just to prevent the possible scratches than occur.

Recently, white gold is also becoming popular, because it resembles with platinum and also less expensive than platinum. However, if you have no monetary limitations, then you may also choose platinum. Platinum is safest of all the metals as one can not mix any other metal. Whatever type of ring you choose do not forget the main purpose is to be happy on the day of your wedding and not to lose the joy of the company of friends and family. A wedding is a lifetime commitment.
