The Do's and Don'ts for Choosing the Perfect Wedding Band

DO Choose a Metal You’ll Wear Forever

One of the biggest considerations when it comes to wedding bands is the metal you choose. Far beyond just choosing between silver and gold, there are now many popular metals you can choose from. Yellow gold, white gold, rose gold, platinum, titanium, palladium, and many others can be used to create gorgeous rings, and you can be as creative or traditional as you’d like. Rather than choosing whatever metal is currently popular, however, choose a metal that will work with your style, skin tone, and other jewelry for the rest of your life. For many cool-toned people, that means metals in the silver-colored family, while people with warm skin tones often prefer yellow or rose gold.

DON’T Go with Mismatched Metals

While choosing that metal option that you’ll love forever, remember to keep your engagement ring and wedding band the same. They don’t have to be completely matching, but even metals that look the same when brand-new tend to age and weather differently. The last thing you want is bands that don’t match at all after 15 years.

DO Make Choices with Some Flexibility

One smart move you can make when exploring Ritani wedding bands in Michigan is make choices that allow you some flexibility over time. For example, bands that still look good without being soldered can be worn in several different ways and bands that can easily be resized are generally a good idea as your fingers change over time.
