One of the most exciting parts of getting engaged is buying your wedding rings. All couples love the idea of wearing a symbol of their love for the rest of their lives, and because of that you don’t want to make any mistakes while choosing your rings.
To help you out and make sure you know exactly how to look for the perfect ring, here are 4 common mistakes you should try to avoid:
1. Size: The most common mistake couples make when choosing their rings is ordering the wrong size, so ask your jewelry store to help measure your size accurately. Also keep in mind that one ring size could be different from the other so you have to get measured for your wedding ring. And dear brides, try not to get your ring size measured during “that” time of the month as your fingers may be retaining water and a bit swollen.
2. Design: You will be wearing your wedding ring every day for the rest of your life, so make sure you are comfortable with the design you picked. Some people tend to pick a really modern and trendy design, but regret it later and want a more classic look. However, if you have your heart set on one of these designs go for it and if in a few years you change your mind you can always ask your jeweler to do some changes and update your ring.
3. Time: Don’t leave your ring decisions till the last minute. It is very important that you decide on your ring and order it a while before your engagement; you should be all set at least 6 weeks before your engagement.
4. Educate yourself: Don't let anyone take advantage of you and make you pay more than what you should have for something you don’t want, so to stay on the safe side you have to learn all about Carat, Color, and Clarity.
