While many men propose around the holiday season and throughout the year, the warmer months are usually considered the best time to have a wedding. Couples around the country are planning their extravagant ceremonies and parties and look forward to one of the happiest events of their life. However, there are lot of big decisions that go along with the wedding season, and this includes finding the ideal jewelry.
Although the engagement ring is perhaps the most obvious expression of the couple’s love, the wedding band is usually the more intimate piece of jewelry. Maybe the best part about choosing a wedding band is the fact that the couple can make the decision together. This is usually the best approach, to make sure that the rings at least somewhat match each other. It can be a very romantic activity to peruse the jewelry store in person or online and discover which piece of jewelry best encapsulates their love.
While the wedding band doesn’t need to be as elaborate and stunning as the engagement ring, it should still be composed of high-quality metals. Gold, silver, platinum and even titanium are all good choices. If gold or enamel is chosen, the couple should choose an appropriate color; usually something more subtle and subdued is preferable, such as rose gold. Black or brightly colored wedding bands may be too intense, but of course it all depends on the couple’s jewelry preferences.
Remember, the wedding band represents devotion, fidelity and eternal loyalty even more than the engagement ring, so it’s always best to choose something that resonates with these qualities in a timeless way. As long as the couple uses their intuition to decide, they’re sure to find that perfect piece for their wedding!
