Your wedding rings are a symbol and reminder of your love, and are going to be worn each and every day after you're married, so it's important you both truly love them.





Diamonds are still the traditional gemstone for engagement rings and diamond-studded wedding bands are becoming increasingly popular. If you go for a diamond, make sure you look out for the 'four Cs': carat, cut, clarity and colour. Remembering these will help you choose a quality diamond that really sparkles.

If you want to mix it up a bit and inject some colour into your bling, there are plenty of other options to choose from. Sapphires, emeralds, opals and rubies are popular choices, but if there is a gemstone that means something special to you, that could be the way to go.

There are also different cuts and settings to choose from, so take your time to find the perfect fit and style.




The traditional yellow-band has taken a back seat recently with white gold, rose gold and platinum bands growing in popularity. There is also a diverse selection of styles and designs, from simple metal bands to more decorative rings.

If you're looking for your wedding and engagement ring at the same time think about a matching set, or for that extra special touch, you could have the inside of the band engraved with you and your other halves' initials or the special date you tied the knot.

And although you're coming together as a couple, there's no need to have matching styles of wedding rings, so make sure you pick something you both will love forever.
