After finding the perfect, newly-engaged couples then have to choose their wedding rings or bands. How? While the photos of wedding rings can be very enticing, you should be able to address more important considerations besides aesthetics. Here are three things to consider before you say “I do” to the first wedding ring you find at a jewellery shop:
1. Buy your engagement ring and your wedding rings together
Practical couples consider buying a bridal set or a wedding set that consists of an engagement ring and wedding bands to eliminate the need to shop twice or spend a lot of time trying to find a wedding band that matches the engagement ring.

2. Choose wedding rings that match the engagement ring
Since brides will be wearing their engagement and wedding rings together, the two pieces should match or complement each other. For example, elaborate diamond engagement rings for Brisbane brides should not be paired with vivacious wedding bands, but a simple engagement ring will look great with diamond Pavé wedding band.
Not only should they look beautiful together but they should not have features that can damage the other. For example, if your engagement ring has a tear-shaped diamond for a center stone, its pointy end should not brush or scrape the wedding band to maintain the band’s quality. In the same manner, a wedding band should not have features that can chip or scratch the precious stones on your engagement ring.
3. Always think long-term
Look into the durability of materials. Since wedding rings are also significant financial investments, you would want to be able to wear these for as long as you can, and maybe even give this as an heirloom for your future generations.

A round cut diamond exudes classic elegance, but you can pair it off with elaborate ring settings to make them more awe-inspiring. You can opt for the vintage-inspired scrollwork setting with a round cut diamond at its center to create a unique wedding ring. Or you can go for a fascinating elaborated side views with a round cut diamond center stone, which designs gives it a royal but also modern appeal.
- Bold, statement-making diamond rings
If your significant other isn’t afraid to show off her personality, then why should her wedding band be understated? Go for boldly designed sparklers like a chain-link diamond band or a bedazzled infinity design. You can also opt for square bands, which are gaining much popularity among men.
