A wedding ring is the most important piece of jewelry you’ll buy. That’s why knowing how to find the best wedding rings is critical for your shopping experience.
Perhaps no one knows the value of wedding rings as much as brides like Emery Bundy.
Everything was ready for Emery’s wedding. She and her now-husband Sam were out shopping for last-minute touches for their wedding. The couple was on the hunt for a basket to hold blankets. Since Sam and Emery decided on an outdoor wedding, they wanted to make sure their guests stayed warm and comfortable.
But while they were busy browsing, another shopper snatched Emery’s purse. This alone would be a terrible situation. But along with her ID, phone, and cash, there was something else missing. Sam’s wedding ring and Emery’s wedding ring had been stolen.
This story has a happy ending. A police officer reviewed the video footage and tracked down the thief’s vehicle using enhanced surveillance technology. Sam and Emery were both surprised and ecstatic to see their wedding rings returned.
Luckily, keeping your rings in a secure place keeps them safe until your wedding. But buying a ring can be stressful in of itself. In this guide, I’ll tell you how to buy the best ring and take care of it. You’ll learn how to avoid wasting your money and find a ring that will endure as long as your love.
What Does a Wedding Ring Symbolize?
I want to start by explaining just why wedding rings are seen as so important. Most of us shop for engagement rings and wedding rings without thinking about their symbolic meaning. Wedding rings were used as far back as the Ancient Egyptians and Greeks. At that time, rings were more common amongst the very powerful.
Wedding rings became more popular for Christian ceremonies around 900 AD. The rings of that time were heavily adorned and engraved. Medieval Europe was a great era for design innovations.
A wedding ring to this day symbolizes a couple’s tight bond. A ring showcases an unbreakable commitment and lasting love. Different styles of wedding rings provide special meanings. For instance, a Celtic knot represents eternity.
Are Wedding Rings a Religious Symbol?
Wedding bands themselves are not tied to one religion. Since they have been used since the days of ancient civilizations, rings have taken on different meanings. Many religious and spiritual people see rings as a symbol of committing the marriage to God or a higher being. However, religious and nonreligious couples alike find that wedding rings are a meaningful sign of commitment.
What Does it Mean to Wear a Wedding Ring on Your Right Hand?
Typically, a wedding ring is worn on the left hand on your ring finger. Some couples change up this tradition. Wearing a wedding ring on your right hand has a beautiful meaning. It’s said that it’s near the vena amoris, which is called the vein of love.
This old symbol showcases that the couple is deeply connected. For those who are right-handed, however, it may be far less practical than those that are left-handed.
Is it OK Not to Wear a Wedding Ring?
While it’s the norm to wear a wedding ring, it isn’t an absolute must. A wedding ring has nothing to do with the legality of your marriage.
At the same time, I highly recommend having a candid conversation with your spouse or spouse to be. Both partners should be on the same page about wearing or not wearing wedding rings. There are some instances where it also makes sense not to wear a wedding ring.
How do You Preserve a Wedding Ring?
This leads me to my next topic: caring for your wedding rings. I want to cover this, as it so often gets overlooked when buying wedding rings. Be honest with yourself about how carefully you’ll take care of your rings. Certain materials- which I will cover soon– are more prone to wear and tear. But careful care can go a long way.
Should You Take Your Wedding Ring Off?
If you or your spouse works in a high-risk environment near chemicals, heavy equipment, or other environmental hazards, you may want an alternative, like a silicone ring (see my Final Buying Recommendations for suggestions). If you do take your wedding ring off, it should be carefully stored in a cloth bag by itself.
Can you Shower With the Wedding Band?
Most wedding rings won’t be damaged by water. The bigger issue is build-up from shampoo or soapy residue. If you shower with your wedding ring, make sure not to get shampoo and shampoo directly on it. However, there are a few metal types, including silver, copper, and brass that will tarnish with exposure to moisture.
How Often Should You Clean Your Wedding Ring?
Cleaning your wedding ring once a week can prevent wear and everyday build-up. For a deeper clean, consider a professional service every six months. You can use gentle soap (just a drop or two) and warm water to clean your band. Don’t apply soap to precious gemstones. Make sure to draw your ring completely. You can buy a wedding ring cleaning liquid to be safe.
How do I Pick the Right Ring?
Now that you know how to properly care for your wedding ring, it’s time to select one. Selecting a wedding ring isn’t merely a matter of choosing a style you like. Start by setting a budget, then research what materials and designs make the most sense for your lifestyle. By taking these steps, you’ll find the best wedding rings for you and avoid an impulse buy.
Who Buys the Wedding Ring?
Traditionally, partners buy each other’s wedding rings. Now, couples often shop for their wedding rings together. Wedding rings don’t need to match, but they should complement each other. In some families, family members might chip in, but it’s not customary.
How Much Should You Spend on a Wedding Ring?
It’s hard to shop for an engagement ring without coming across advice about how much you should spend. The problem is that advice is often outdated and pushed by jewelers.
But it’s even harder to determine how much to spend on wedding rings because there’s far less advice. To set a budget, I recommend making a spreadsheet of all your wedding expenses. Click Here For My Wedding Finacial Planning Guide. Once you establish must-haves, it’ll be easier to see how much room you have to spend on a wedding ring.
How Much do the Average Wedding Rings Cost?
Of course, I know not everyone has their wedding planned out. It may be helpful to know that the average wedding ring costs about $500 for men’s rings and $1,000 for women’s rings.
However, averages can be deceiving and include outliers. All told, a few hundred dollars can buy you a nice ring if you like a plain style. If you plan on adding precious gemstones, then $500 to $1,000 as a starting point is more realistic.
Do Wedding Rings Have to be Diamond?
Wedding rings often include diamonds, but many do not. Some of my favorite wedding rings are simple, solid bands. If you find a solid band too boring but don’t have the desire or budget for diamonds, you can buy another gemstone. A great diamond alternative is a moissanite. You can also opt for a twisted band or a Celtic knot.
How Many Carats Should a Wedding Ring Be?
If you do decide to buy diamonds, you need to make sure they’re authentic (lab-grown or natural) and of high quality. You should always prioritize quality oversize. Carat weight for wedding rings tends to be modest.
What is a Good Color for a Diamond?
Color is the number one thing you should consider when buying any diamond ring. Opt for colorless or nearly colorless. On the GIA grading scale, that translates to a D, E, F (colorless) or G, H, I, J (nearly colorless). Anything of lesser quality will have a faint to deep yellow tint.
What is the Best Diamond Cut?
Since diamonds don’t tend to be the focal point of wedding rings, I would worry about cutting less than I would for an engagement ring. Round brilliant optimizes sparkle. Oval, princess, and cushions cuts are excellent options as well. Avoid deep cuts for a wedding ring.
What Does Clarity Mean in Diamonds?
Clarity refers to the inclusions or imperfections for that diamond. This affects the diamond’s appearance and brilliance. If possible, buy a ring with diamonds that are very slightly included (Vs1 or Vs2) or better. Slightly included diamonds will have noticeable defects.
Should I buy a ring with lab-grown or natural diamonds?
Natural diamonds are more valuable, but lab-grown is better for your wallet. They share the same physical properties. If you do buy a ring with natural diamonds, look for information about how the diamonds are sourced. At a minimum, they should be certified conflict-free and come with an official GIA (Gemological Institute of America) or AGS (American Gem Society) report.
How do You Measure the Ring Wedding Ring Size?
Buying the proper ring size is important too– but if you don’t get it perfectly right, it’s also somewhat fixable. So even if you are shopping for wedding rings for each separately, there are still some options.
How Should a Wedding Ring Fit?
A wedding ring fit is rather particular. The fit should be snug enough that it doesn’t slide up or down on its own. You should feel the tension as you remove the ring, but it shouldn’t hurt to remove.
Can Wedding Rings be Resized?
Platinum, gold, and silver wedding rings can be sized down, Sjzing down costs anywhere from $20 to $100 on average and takes a matter of hours. If the ring has a complicated design, it may be more expensive and take longer.
Can Wedding Rings be Enlarged/Sized Up?
Luckily, rings have been sized up as well. Rings are resized for two sizes one way or another. Further resizing isn’t possible. When a ring is resized too much, it may be ruined and broken.
Is There a Difference Between Men’s and Women’s Wedding Bands?
The most notable difference between men’s and women’s wedding bands is sizing. Men’s bands are typically wider, with an average of 6mm vs 4mm. However, both men’s and women’s rings have a range of widths. Another difference besides fit is style and designs.
Alternative metals and black rings, including titanium, tungsten, and zirconium, are typically classified as men’s. That said, I find the distinctions arbitrary.
What Metal Are Wedding Rings Made Of?
Ring metal is the most important decision you have to make. The metal of your ring greatly impacts the durability, shine, and care considerations. I’ll answer some frequently asked questions. I also created a chart for a quick method of comparison. As you can see, there is no such thing as a perfect ring metal. I’ll go into more detail about the different types of each metal category.
|General Metal Type||Pros||Cons|
Can Wedding Rings be Silver?
Most silver rings are 925 sterling silver. 925 silver is your best choice, as it’s far more durable than pure silver (a very soft metal). While you can buy sterling silver wedding rings, they come with a notable downside.
Sterling silver will tarnish and discolor with time. Silver will tarnish more quickly if exposed to moisture. It is prone to scratches as well. While not the worst metal choice, I would recommend another metal above sterling silver for your wedding ring.
Do Wedding Rings Have to be Gold?
Of course, that does not mean your wedding rings have to be gold. White, rose and yellow gold is classic options and beautiful. Not all gold is created equal. Avoid gold plating– a cheaper metal that involves a thin sheet of gold over a base metal. Gold plating peels tarnish and wear within a few years.
10K gold is the hardest to scratch, but it isn’t very valuable and comes with a dull appearance. 14K to 18K gold is the sweet spot for most. You’ll have an elegant luster but the rings won’t easily become scratch. The higher the gold purity, the more valuable, the higher the luster and the softer the metal is.
Are Our Platinum Rings Worth It?
If you love the look of white gold, platinum is another metal to consider. This metal has a brilliant shine and is very durable. One thing that’s unique about platinum wedding rings is how the finish changes. Platinum does eventually scratch, but those scratches form a new finish. Thus finish looks like a naturally antique finish and is beautiful in its own right.
However, some may be disappointed that the ring looks different than when you first bought it. Though an excellent choice in many ways, the cost may also be prohibitive for some couples.
Can Rings be Made of Stainless Steel?
Stainless steel may not be the first material you think of when you’re buying a wedding ring, but it’s an option. This is one of several metals that are mostly only carried for masculine rings unless you look on Etsy.
Stainless steel rings are lightweight, generally allergen-friendly, and durable. They aren’t prone to rust or corrosion. They’re also affordable. A downside is that they can be dented. They’re also quite hard to resize and dull.
Will the Titanium Ring Last Long?
Titanium will certainly last, and it doesn’t require much upkeep. Resistant to corrosion, strong and lightweight, it’s a dark horse so to speak. Once again, titanium is made for men’s rings primarily, and you’ll have to shop from a specialty jeweler.
While it’s possible to scratch, it’s harder to scratch than common options like gold and platinum. They’re very difficult to size, however, and don’t have much luster.
Is Tungsten Good for a Ring?
Tungsten is another metal that’s become more widely used for men’s wedding rings. Tungsten is the most scratch-resistant metal you can buy for a ring. They won’t bend or break. One concern is that tungsten requires special intervention to remove in case of an emergency. Something like vice grips will need to be used. Tungsten likewise cannot be resized and its resale value is low.
Do Zirconium Rings Scratch Easily?
Zirconium rings are an excellent option if your biggest concern is scratching– at least initially. The problem is that the top layer of zirconium rings is not the same as the inner layer. Zirconium rings usually wear out, revealing a softer inner layer. For this reason, zirconium rings may need repair after a few years.
What Ring Metal Lasts the Longest?
If I had to choose just one of these metals, it would be platinum. Platinum rings are widely available, beautiful, and hard to damage. They don’t require the level of upkeep other rings do. If you don’t mind a duller appearance and get the sizing right, stainless steel is an affordable alternative. 14K and 18K gold rings are reasonable options as well.
Of the less conventional choices, I prefer titanium over tungsten and zirconium. No matter what metal you choose for your wedding rings, make sure you buy from a reputable supplier and ask about the quality of the metal. Gold plated wedding rings are quite different from 18K gold wedding rings.
What are the Different Styles of Wedding Rings?
Now it’s time to discuss ring settings. Ring settings are the style of the band. The chart below discusses the different types of the most popular ring settings. Unlike selecting the metal type and diamonds for your wedding ring, this is mostly a matter of aesthetic preferences.
|Ring Setting or Style||Description|
|This is pretty much as it sounds. A classic ring is a simple band. It may vary in width and style, but it’s fairly plain. However, it may include diamond settings.|
|Comfort Band||A comfort band is usually a plain, classic style. It’s made with grooves to conform to the natural contours of a finger. This is a good option for sensitive skin or someone with a condition like arthritis|
(Common For Engagement Rings )
|Halo settings are more common for engagement rings than wedding bands. They usually feature a center stone with a brilliant setting. Halo rings pair accent rings with a center stone.|
(Common For Engagement Rings)
|A solitaire ring setting is most common for engagement rings are well. This too features a center stone but is more subtle than a halo style.|
|Vintage||Vintage is a general term you’ll see and there’s no strict definition. Art Deco and Victorian are among the most popular influences. It can involve any setting.|
What are the Different Types of Shank?
Aside from general settings and styles, there’s also the shank style. For shank styles, look at the contours or tilt of the band. You have a straight shank band, which is evenly rounded. A tapered shank slowly becomes slimmer. A split shank is almost always seen for engagement rings with a center stone. A knife-edge adds texture to your wedding band. There are also interlocking shanks, like a Celtic Knot style.
How Can I Find Unique Wedding Rings?
There are several things you can do to find a unique wedding ring. Shopping with a local jeweler is one option. You can design your wedding ring with some larger companies.
What Should I Get Engraved on My Wedding Ring?
Another way to make your wedding ring unique is through custom engravings. It’s up to you what you engrave your wedding ring with. However, popular wedding ring engraving ideas include:
- Meaningful Quote
- Wedding Date
- Place You Met
What Does it Mean by Bridal Set Rings?
Another consideration is bridal sets. Bridal sets come with an engagement ring and a wedding ring. The idea is that both match and you won’t have to look for a wedding ring later. However, you only propose with the engagement ring, not the whole set. The other partner will also need to shop for a wedding ring.
Why are There 3 Rings in a Bridal Set?
Some bridal sets come with 2 rings. Other bridal sets come with 3 rings. The third ring is an anniversary ring. Anniversary rings may be worn for any milestone. Some celebrate after a single year, while others mark later milestones. 10, 20, and 50 years are celebrated milestones, but there’s no true rule about anniversary rings.
How Many Rings Can You Stack?
You can stack up to three or four rings on a finger. That said, there are traditions as to wear wedding rings and anniversary rings are worn. Anniversary rings are most commonly worn on the right hand on your ring finger.
What Happens to the Engagement Ring After Marriage?
Likewise, the wedding band is usually placed the left hand during a ceremony. After the ceremony, the engagement ring is set on the left hand over the wedding ring. This is not a must, just a common tradition.
Where Should I Buy my Wedding Rings?
After you’ve established a budget, it’s time to shop. When you’re buying something as important as a wedding ring, you need to be careful. Never buy a wedding ring from an unknown supplier. Check out the ratings of larger companies from both customer review sites (such as Trust Pilot) and the Better Business Bureau.
After looking into a designer or company’s reputation and history, I also look into their selection and compare prices with other suppliers. Cheaper isn’t always better, and the comparison must be as even as possible. For example, you can’t compare a platinum wedding ring with diamond accents with a 14K gold ring from another supplier.
My criteria for selecting the best wedding ring collections are as follows:
- Company Reputation- Professional and Consumer Reviews
- High-Quality Materials
- Thoughtful Design (Classic, Innovative, Attention to Detail)
- Fair Pricing
- GIA Ratings For Precious Gemstones & Sourcing Information
- Overall Selection (Styles, Sizing)
- Transparent Customer Service Policies
- Rings Ship with Ring Box and Insurance (or Insurance is Offered)
- Bonus Points: Engravings, Design Your Ring, and Other Customization

Frequently Asked Questions
Answer: The three rings of marriage are the engagement ring, wedding ring, and anniversary ring. These can be bought separately or as a bridal set. Some couples (usually religious) also buy a promise ring. A promise ring is worn before engagement, usually for a very young couple who is committed but not ready to get married.
Answer: There’s no hard and fast rule when it comes to an anniversary ring. Anniversary rings are often an eternity ring style. This symbolizes an eternal bond between two people. You don’t have to be married a certain amount of years to get one, but couples usually celebrate with 10th, 20th, 30th and 50th anniversaries.
Answer: Engagement rings are different in meaning and usually, appearance. An engagement ring is given for a proposal. Solitaire and halo rings are the most popular styles. Wedding rings are most often plain bands or bands adorned with diamonds. That said, a simple band can be used as an engagement ring.
Answer: Some couples don’t have an engagement ring at all. While there’s a common perception that you’re ‘supposed to have both an engagement ring and a wedding ring, that’s really up to the couple. However, proposing with a wedding ring may not be perceived well. It’s important to understand your partner’s wants and needs.
If it’s clear your partner doesn’t want an engagement ring, proposing with something like flowers may be a nice touch. That way, there isn’t pressure to accept a wedding ring. Always know the person’s genuine wants before doing something in an alternative way.
Answer: You and your partner’s wedding rings do not need to match. Matching is traditional and seen as a symbol of being connected. At the same time, opting for different rings can showcase each other’s unique personalities.
Answer: If you’re getting a rash from your wedding ring, there are two important things to remember: don’t panic and don’t ignore it. Unfortunately, many rashes are caused by a sensitivity or allergy to the metal. The most common metal allergy is nickel, followed by copper, chromium, and cobalt.
A lesser-known cause is not cleaning and drying your ring regularly. Debris, soap, and other materials can accumulate over time and irritate.
The second problem is a more likely culprit if you’re worn your wedding ring for longer than a few months and haven’t had rashes before. To be safe, take your ring off and get tested for a metal allergy. Seek medical attention immediately if you have any signs of an anaphylactic reaction.
Answer: Most wedding rings are cut off using a steel cutter or similar equipment. You shouldn’t try to cut off your wedding ring yourself. There are less drastic ways to remove a wedding ring as well. You can loosen a wedding ring with a lubricant like butter, oil, or petroleum jelly. Always clean the ring after you use any of these, as these substances cause build-up by leaving a greasy residue.
Buying wedding rings can be an overwhelming process. The worst mistake you can make is either overthinking or not having a plan at all. I want you to have the best wedding ring shopping experience possible.
Give yourself the best chance of finding great wedding rings by setting a budget and choosing a style ahead of time. Be willing to comparison shop and do a little research about the jeweler you’re buying from. Remember: there is no perfect wedding ring. At the same time, don’t ever feel you have to settle if you’re being pressured to buy a ring.
Final Buying Recommendations: Silicone Rings From Groove Life Rings
As I mentioned before, taking care of your wedding rings also involves knowing when you should take them off. Athletes involved in intense and high contact sports could damage their wedding rings. Anyone working around the chemical or other strong environmental hazards also could. Of course, manual labor is also a concern. If this fits you or your partner, you might want to consider a silicone ring. Silicone rings are meant to be worn while performing these riskier activities. That way, you can keep your ‘true’ wedding ring safe.
However, many silicone ring companies are currently struggling with low ratings from the BBB and many complaints. Groove Life Rings have a reasonable rating, a fair price, and a nice selection. Shop All Groove Life Rings Here.
