Wedding Rings Come FirstThe first step to making your jewelry plans is to decide on the rings you will wear for the rest of your life. Your engagement and wedding ring are usually purchased as a set with designs which compliment each separate piece. The choice of a groom's ring is a personal decision between the couple. These types of rings can be selected in a matching style to the bridal rings or chosen in a distinctive and unique style. Plan on taking some time to find rings which are comfortable and fit both your finger and your lifestyle. No bride wants to be constantly protecting her rings for the daily events of her life such as outdoor activities or household duties. Edmund T. Ahee Jewelers, located in Grosse Pointe Woods, offers a unique selection of wedding rings and bridal jewelry. Also available is a design your own ring service for a truly one of a kind piece to treasure for a lifetime. A helpful diagram includes all the types of diamond cuts to help you become an informed customer.
Look to the Past for Unique Wedding RingsMany couples are finding the perfect rings for both their budgets and tastes are not in jewelry stores. Antique rings are a growing trend as couples see the timeless design and elegance of the past as a path to their futures. Spend a day shopping the antique stores and vintage shops for rings which match your personalities. Be sure to check for missing stones, weakened findings or other signs of wear and have them checked over thoroughly by a reputable jeweler for hidden flaws and damage. These rings may need to be sized or stones may need replacement, so this is not the best last minute solution. If you find a single ring in a design you love, matching rings for you or the groom can be created by some jewelers. Again, this may help your budget, but it will not be a fast process, so start your search with plenty of time to allow for the process of creating a ring from the beginning.
Your Other Wedding JewelryWhile you search for the perfect rings, keep you eyes open for necklaces and earrings to wear on your special day. These accessories are the details which complete your look and can be used to highlight wedding colors, add to your dress details or simply make you feel beautiful and elegant. Retailers such as Marias Bridal, in Rochester, offers collections of necklace and earring groupings for any taste. Sparkling head pieces with and without veils are also available. By combining your time for both your rings and your accessories, your shopping time can be cut in half and you will be aware of any sales or discounts which might apply.
Your wedding jewelry is some of the most personal and valued possessions you will ever own. The style, shape and design are unique decisions for each couple and the rings themselves represent much more than the value of the gold and diamonds. Choose your rings with the knowledge that they will be the central symbol of your marriage for the rest of your lives.
