Much has been said about the perfect wedding theme, the wedding dress, and even the engagement ring. But what about your wedding rings?
Wedding rings make up an important part of the wedding ceremony, worn during the exchanging of vows. These bands symbolize eternal love and devotion, as the couple promises to love and cherish each other for the rest of their life.
While wedding rings these days come in all sorts of styles, the most common looks are a plain metal band or an eternity band set in pave diamonds—meaning it’s lined by small diamonds or other stones. Wedding rings vary in price according to the metal, gemstones, and design, ranging anywhere between roughly P40,000 to P350,000 for a pair.
Traditionally, the metal for your wedding rings should match your engagement ring—a good and fool-proof rule to follow. That said, you’re free to experiment especially if you’re not a stickler for tradition. Our take? A focal point is best—such as keeping your stones consistent even if you’re mixing metals. While there are no hard and fast rules and you are free to experiment, it’s worth keeping in mind that your wedding ring will be everyday jewelry. Think of what you’re comfortable wearing on a daily basis, and what will best suit your style and personality.
As you prepare your vows, get ready to shop as well for wedding rings that will make you say “I do.”
