Plain Yellow Gold Wedding Band: A Band of Eternal Love
Posted: Sep 19, 2014
As the ultimate symbol of love, the wedding band is a promise of an eternity of togetherness and love. A wedding band symbolizes undying love which has no beginning and no end. So it becomes essential that you select the right wedding band for your future wife or husband if you want him/her to actually wear it. For this you need to consider their jewelry preference as well as their occupation and lifestyle.
First of all, you need to have your partner’s finger sized for the proper fit, which will maximize his/her comfort. A ring that is too tight can cause irritation and a ring that is large may slip off the finger and get lost.
Secondly, choose a metal. White or yellow gold are the traditionally preferred ring metals, but they are quite pricey and prone to scratching. Silver rings are less resilient than gold, but cost lesser too. Platinum is a rare and strong metal that is very expensive. Titanium and tungsten are stronger metals that can withstand harsh wear and tear and are cheaper than gold. Titanium is hypoallergenic, which is ideal for a man with sensitive skin. These days, one can also choose from silver, yellow, black, grey, copper or rose tinted colored rings. Two toned rings are slowly gaining popularity. The ring could be made of a pure metal or a combination of two or more metals.
Thirdly, select the width of a band that looks right and elegant on your partner’s fingers. It should feel most comfortable. This will depend on his/her fingers, if they are short and stubby or slender and long. For example, a thin band would look pretty on long fingers and a very thick band would look awkward on shorter fingers. Most wedding rings are between 5mm and 7mm in width.
Fourthly, you need to pick out a design that suits his/her personality and lifestyle. If your partner intends to wear the wedding ring daily, works manually with hands or is generally more conservative in their outlook, a plain yellow gold wedding band might be the best. If your partner is outgoing and enjoys being the center of attention or plans only to wear the ring on special occasions, a flashier ring could be a little bit daring, but not over the top.
Next, decide whether you want a simple band or a decorative design encrusted with diamonds or other precious gemstones. While women, generally, admire highly decorative ornate styles and exclusive solitaires, men prefer more subtle yet professional looking designs and patterns. A ring with an engraved name or message would be much admired. A criss - cross or woven pattern or an interesting band around the edges can also be considered. The finish of the ring also matters. The ring can have a shiny, smooth surface finish or it can have a textured, braided or paisley pattern.
Another thing to keep in mind before buying a wedding ring is whether it should be a distinct design or a classic piece which can be mixed and matched with other jewelry pieces. Many couples prefer to buy matching rings to exchange on their wedding day. While chunky and chic designs can be worn casually, timeless and classic pieces are highly admired and valued through the generations.
