10 tips for choosing the perfect wedding rings

Experience has shown that finding your own wedding rings is often not as easy as expected. Which rings are the best for us? What are the advantages of which precious metal? ... Questions upon questions.

To make it a little easier for you to choose the perfect wedding ring, we have put together the 10 best tips for you to look for and find the right wedding ring.

1. Find your individual style

In order to find a wedding ring that you will enjoy your life in, it is important that you stay true to your style. Be or be aware of what type you are.

Do you want a classically modern wedding ring or do you long for something extravagant? Depending on the type, you should make the right choice for you.

It is crucial that you both still like your chosen wedding rings even after many years.

Wedding rings are a sign of love and should be chosen carefully for this reason, as they will be with you for a lifetime.

2. Choose a type-appropriate precious metal

When choosing the precious metal, there are a few criteria to consider. First and foremost, the preferred precious metal should of course depend on your own preferences. However, if you are still undecided, then the alloy will definitely match your type. Hair color and skin tone are crucial when it comes to choosing the right precious metal.

Basically: "White" or silver-colored precious metals are particularly suitable for cold types. Yellow gold and copper-colored precious metals are recommended for warm types.

Here is more information about the advantages and disadvantages of the various precious metals.

3. Precious metals with inventory

Since you want to enjoy your wedding rings for a lifetime, it is best to choose a precious metal that is in existence. Of course, the most important thing here is the budget that is available to you for the wedding rings. If necessary, a wedding loan is an option.

Silver is a timeless and classic precious metal that is comparatively cheap. However, other precious metals such as gold and platinum are characterized by their durability and are significantly more robust.

4. Dreamlike gemstones with symbols

The choice of the right gemstone for the wedding rings is of course primarily dependent on the personal taste of the bride and groom. However, it can also be adapted to the desired metal alloy or the color of the eyes.

A classic diamond suits every woman and turns into a real eye-catcher on every finger. Silver-colored metals such as white gold and platinum can be wonderfully combined with any gemstone.

Another nice approach is to pay attention to the special symbolism of each stone. The ruby, for example, stands for love and passion and is often referred to as the “lucky stone of love”.

5. Determine your correct ring size

In order to determine the correct ring size, it is practical to use a ring that you have in your jewelry box as a guide. Measure the inside diameter and multiply it by the number π (3.142). To be on the safe side, seek advice from your trusted jeweler.

Online jewelers will also be happy to send you a free ring size template on request. Since you will probably seldom take off your wedding rings, special care must be taken to ensure that they fit perfectly on your finger.

6. Provide your wedding rings with an individual engraving

The wedding ring symbolizes the bond between two people. Since the ring should be a symbol of your love, give your wedding rings a very individual engraving. For example, choose your wedding date or the name of your partner.


Here are a few ideas for the personal ring engraving of your wedding rings:

  • Your wedding date
  • Name of the partner
  • The infinity sign
  • "I love you"
  • "Ich liebe dich"
  • "Yours forever"
  • "Forever"
  • "Forever us"
  • "Forever and ever"
  • "In eternal love"
  • "Yesterday. Today. Forever."
  • "True love never ends"
  • "Favourite person"
  • "Faith, love, hope."
  • "By your side all my life"
  • Coordinates of registry office / church / trauort

You can also have a case engraved. This also turns the case into a beautiful memory carrier.

If you want to buy your wedding rings in an online shop, please only have them engraved if you are guaranteed to keep them (personalized wedding rings cannot be exchanged!).

Therefore, you should rather order the wedding rings to try on and then have them engraved if you really like them.

7. How individual should your wedding rings be?

Do you want a traditionally prefabricated model or do you want a wedding ring that is adapted to your ideas? Decide in advance what to expect from your wedding rings. If you have a very specific idea in mind, you can use the opportunity and design individual wedding rings according to your wishes.

8. Rings for eternity

Do you want a particularly extravagant design? When choosing your wedding rings, make sure that you choose a special and yet everyday model. Fancy ring bands are not ideal for the wedding ring. The rings should of course correspond to your individual ideas, but should also be able to withstand everyday stresses permanently.

9. Take the time to choose

Choosing the perfect wedding ring should be made carefully. Since the ring will be your daily companion for many, many years, you should allow yourself enough time when choosing your wedding rings. Before buying, be sure that you are satisfied with the model you have chosen and that you want to wear it for a lifetime.

10. Align yourself with one another

The wedding ring is a very special piece of jewelry in the life of a married couple. So take into account the preferences of both of you and find a design that you like equally.

If you absolutely cannot agree, then choose different models (even if the optics do not fit together perfectly, your hearts still belong together). It's still better than if one of you doesn't like wearing the wedding ring at all.

Regardless of the choice of the perfect model, your wedding rings will be the start of a life together and are in any case a beautiful symbol of your love.
