After your big day is over, it’s your precious memories that will be with you forever. That’s why your wedding rings deserve to be cherished for a lifetime. These top tips from Beaverbrooks’ Diamond and Jewellery Buyer, Lorna Burhouse will help you find your dream wedding rings, perfect for embarking on your new and romantic journey. Enjoy searching for your wedding rings together, after all, they’re a symbol of your everlasting love for one another.

Start your search early

You should give yourself at least three months to find your perfect wedding ring, especially if you are unsure on what you are looking for. I would suggest that you try on as many rings as possible. There are some beautiful, timeless wedding rings to choose from such as the Beaverbrooks Platinum Diamond Solitaire Engagement Ring, or if you want something bespoke you may want to start looking sooner to allow more time for engraving and personalisation – we work with some well-regarded engravers to ensure that your ring is well looked after.

Consider your lifestyle

A lot of people don’t remove their wedding ring once it is on their finger so you really need to consider a ring that is best for your lifestyle. Do you work in a kitchen? You may want to avoid nooks and crannies that can capture dirt. Are you a teacher? You may want to consider a ring without sharp, scratchy edges.

Match the metals

At the end of the day, your wedding ring is your choice but it is the jewellers’ responsibility to ensure you are given all of the key facts in order to make the right decision. Beaverbrooks always recommend that if your engagement ring is platinum, your wedding ring should also be platinum. This is because precious metals have different compositions and platinum will wear differently to another metal – in time you may not like the fact that your engagement ring looks visually different to your wedding ring!

Always remember aftercare

Keep the diamond/diamonds looking as sparkly! At Beaverbrooks, we offer a lifetime of cleaning and inspection with each wedding band to help you make sure your ring looks as beautiful as it did the day you bought it. Also, if you pick a 9ct or 18ct white gold ring, this item will require re-rhodium coating over time as the rhodium wears off. It is relatively inexpensive but again these are things to consider when choosing your band and which jeweller you choose.

Set a budget

There are wedding rings to suit every budget and you must keep this in mind when shopping for your wedding ring. With other aspects of the big day to consider such as the venue, the cake and the shoes, a wedding budget can quickly spiral out of control. Have a budget in mind and stick to it – you’ll find the right ring without spending the earth.
