Looking for your wedding rings can be a daunting experience - or worse - an afterthought next to the extensive search for the perfect engagement ring. If you have your heart on a personalised design to commemorate your love story, cop these tips!
Look for a brand you trust
This is important because your wedding ring will be one of the most significant pieces of jewellery you will ever own.
And when it comes to brands, you’re in good hands with award-winning German jeweller Niessing. Established in 1873, the brand is known for its award-winning designs, use of exquisite German craftsmanship, and world-class manufacturing techniques. This is clearly evident in its signature Niessing Ring, where a diamond appears to float on the wearer’s hand, when it is actually suspended in between with tension instead of a regular setting.
Start your search early
Don’t leave your ring shopping till the last minute! You’ll need time to think about the design you want, and to source for a ring or brand that best suits your needs.
Consider the material
There are several factors when choosing the material for your rings; whether it suits your skin tone, budget, lifestyle, or preference.
Niessing’s Design Your Own Wedding Bands lets you choose from 14 unique and different shades of gold and platinum - each one representing various aspects of romance; the fiery Classic Red is perfect for a passionate relationship, while the mysterious Iris lends a sort of glamour as its artful mix of yellow and grey gold reveals itself differently depending on the light. The Solaris, a lustrous yellow-to-orange hue, takes the form of an exquisite sunset. You can even choose to add a row of diamonds on the outer rim if you wish to.
Think about your lifestyle
Before you start saving images of gorgeous bands on your Pinterest board, be practical about your choice according to your lifestyle. For instance, if your job requires a fair bit of physical work, you may want something plain and hardy, so it doesn’t scratch or bend easily.
Once you’ve selected the type of material best suited for your needs, customise your ring by choosing from six different shapes, textures and forms, including round and curved, or natural and soft. You can even decide where your diamond will be and complete the design with an engraved message of your choice.
At the end of the day, it is important to go with a brand you trust to create your wedding rings. Here, you will have the highly-trained Niessing team on hand to help you create your dream design throughout the process either in person via bespoke bridal consultation sessions, or online at designring.niessing.com.
Match it with your engagement ring
If you’re not sure which direction to go with your wedding rings, take inspiration from your engagement ring. An eternity band, like the Memory series complements a diamond solitaire beautifully and it allows you to add on a diamond each time you celebrate a new milestone in your love journey.
Make a statement with details
The Signum is lovely for couples looking for more than a personalised touch. It serves more like a time capsule where the couple leaves a message (known only to them and the craftsman) ensconced between layers of gold or platinum. The message will gradually reveal itself over time when the top layers of the rings are worn.
Say “you complete me” best with Unita, which features a pair of rings that are literally shaped to fit one another, joined together perfectly as a symbol of your relationship.
