Choosing a Diamond Wedding Ring Set
Weddings are definitely joyous but exhausting events. Aside from the basics like searching for a venue, the wedding dress, the reception and the like-one of the major considerations of countless couples who are planning to tie the knot is the their wedding ring.
Usually, most couples prefer a diamond wedding ring set because it is large enough to be worn by itself. For those who are much into rings, a diamond wedding set is perfect for you because it can serve as an engagement ring and the wedding ring all at the same.
Searching for that perfect diamond wedding ring can be stressful and strenuous because there are so many things to consider such as the beauty, shape, size, and cost. The best thing you can do is to trim down these options based on your personal preference and taste.
Here are some tips that can help you get by in searching for that dream diamond wedding ring set. First, you have to choose a diamond wedding ring set that suits your taste and of your fianc? as well. There are actually many settings of diamond wedding ring sets available in most jewelry stores today.
If you prefer simple ones, you can opt for a diamond wedding ring set that has contemporary or modern look like those rings with one main diamond surrounded by smaller stones. But if you want a grander one, you might want to look for diamond wedding ring sets that have intricate designs or have traditional and antique look.
Next, know what kind of metal you prefer and also determine its weight based on your budget. The most common setting of any diamond wedding ring set is gold--it can be white gold or yellow gold. Based on standards, fine gold jewelry should be mounted in either a 18-karat, which consists of 18 parts pure gold with 6 parts other metals, or a 14-karat that has 14 parts pure gold combined with 10 parts of other metals.
If you've finally decided to use gold for your diamond wedding ring set, decide whether you want a 14-karat or a 18-karat. Most jewelers agree that a 14-karat yellow gold will last longer over time compared to the 18-karat yellow gold because it is harder. If you like white gold for your diamond wedding ring set, 18-karat is the best because it is whiter, harder, and more resistant to scratches.
Other common option is platinum because it has remarkable appeal and could last longer. Since it's more durable compared to gold, a diamond wedding ring set made of platinum can resist breakage, chipping, and cracking over time and most of all, it doesn't cause any discoloration of the skin.
Lastly, consider the shape. The popular diamond shape for wedding rings is round or brilliant because they tend to sparkle more than other shapes. Other popular cuts for diamond wedding rings include baguette, emerald shape, heart shape, oval shape, pear shape, princess cut, marquise, and trillion wedding rings.
