Choosing a Ring

Picking Out Your Wedding Bands

By  | 

Wedding bands represent unity, harmony and the eternal beauty of your love. To help you find the perfect rings for your happily ever after, we put together a guide with expert tips to make your shopping process much easier!

Start Your Search Early

Don’t wait until the last minute to pick out your wedding bands! It’s best to start the search six months before the wedding. This will give you extra time to get your ring sized and to add a unique engraving, if you’d like.

Set a Budget

Shane Co. has wedding bands that match any budget. A simple gold wedding band is going to cost a lot less than a platinum band with diamonds. Before you start shopping, discuss how much you want to spend with your partner.

Keep Your Lifestyle in Mind

You and your partner will likely wear your wedding bands every day, so you should make sure the bands fit into your daily lifestyles. Platinum or alternative metals like cobalt are great options for those who live an active lifestyle.

Narrow Down Your Choices

Deciding what style you are naturally drawn to before you start shopping can help you narrow down the options. Maybe you admire little details and would prefer a band with a vintage look. If you love color, you might want a band with rubies or sapphires. On the contrary, a clean, polished style could catch your eye.

Shop Together

Wedding band shopping is a lot more fun and productive if you go together. Some couples coordinate the wedding bands to match, while others select completely different styles. Either way, visiting the store together will give you both more insight into which bands to choose. Ready to start shopping?
