Are you recently engaged? Congratulations! There are many things to do to prepare for the wedding, including buying your wedding bands. If you’re in the market for a set of beautiful wedding bands, it might seem difficult to find a pair that you both agree on. Does it have to match? Do you buy something simple? Here are three facts that might help you make the decision:
They don’t have to be identical. One of the most common misconceptions about buying wedding bands is that they have to be identical. More and more couples are buying wedding bands that don’t look exactly the same. Consider matching the basics, such as the type of precious metal and the stones; however, it’s even okay to purchase completely different bands.
You can go extravagant. Most people have basic wedding bands; but you don’t have to purchase typical boring bands. Instead, a growing number of couples are purchasing big and old wedding bands, including stunning eternity bands.
You don’t have to buy new. Instead of going to your local jewellery retailer, consider visiting an antique shop that sells antique and vintage jewellery. You will be surprised at the selection of high-quality wedding bands you might find, including rare Art Deco rings.
