If wedding bells are around the corner for you, you might be trying to purchase a piece with a precious stone or a few, to mark this very special day in your life. It is also a time of great stress and planning where nothing seems to go according to plan most of the time. Therefore, the chances of you making a purchasing mistake is even more higher than if you were shopping for this just as a treat for yourself. Here are a few of the errors that you need to avoid when you go shopping for your wedding band.
Avoid the current trends
Your wedding band is one that will last you forever. It will be the symbol of your union with your life partner and hold very special meaning. Therefore even though there may be really attractive and trendy diamonds rings for sale, avoid going through with a piece that is the current trend. Follow your heart instead and stick to your personal style that you wish to carry forward. Always remember, this piece needs to be a part of you and nothing more or nothing less.
Check for certification
Most dealers stress on fulfilling the 4C’s in precious stones. However, it is just as crucial that you buy fine jewellery which comes with the right certification. Most people who purchase for the first time go for a “D flawless” stone which should not be a priority. Look at how the piece feels to you. Are you completely satisfied with it? The certification is a must but the cut, clarity, carat and colour is entirely up to you. See this page if you are looking for more fine jewellery for sale.
Never shop by yourself
Purchasing a wedding band is a challenging feat. Therefore embarking on this alone is not advisable. Most couples tend to do the selection process together which is great. You can also get recommendations and names of reputed dealers from those who have already been through the drill. You can also bounce your pick off your partner and friends so that they might be able to put into perspective something that you do not catch. If you are shopping for your significant other, chances are their friends might know exactly what they want.
Size doesn’t matter
The cliché is true in this case. The size of the stone that you pick should never matter. It will only matter if you and your partner give it importance. In reality, it is better to have a small yet beautiful piece as opposed to a rather large, unappealing rock.
The setting cannot be ignored.
Every aspect of your final product will lend to its overall appearance and feel. The setting therefore cannot be neglected. Once you have chosen the ideal stone for your customized piece, do take your time to consider how you want it framed. An insight for this can be borrowed from your personal style or a combination of yours and your partners. After all, this is about togetherness forever.
