Diamond wedding bands are beautiful jewellery that symbolize integrity and love between husband and wife in their lifetime journey together. They also symbolize fidelity and commitment and wedding bands have evolved to one of the must-have items in the wedding shopping list.
For middle income consumers like myself, cost is one of the determining factors for the type of wedding bands I purchase. Reason being, most of our savings has been deployed to paying for the wedding dinner, bridal package and honeymoon.
During my very first visit to the jewellery shop, I was absolutely clueless of what to look for when choosing and buying wedding bands.
After visiting 5 jewellery shops within 2 hours, I realized the sales person always ask ? what our budget was and if we preferred yellow gold, white gold, platinum or a mixture of either gold with platinum or otherwise. Our answers to these questions would determine the type of wedding bands they showed us.
At present, it seemed that yellow gold has lost its popularity, in its? place, white gold and platinum are the preferred choices in today?s modern world. One of the reasons why platinum is favoured could be that platinum is harder than gold and is scratch-free.
If you shop long and hard enough, you may even come across some shops that offer life-time guarantee and allow for free exchange of bands for another new piece of the same price in the future. Of course, it may not necessarily be of the same design.
Personally, I feel there are a few factors that we men look out for in wedding bands:
The diamond wedding bands must be within our budget. We do not wish to over blow our budget just because of a moment of impulse.
Men can be as particular as women when it comes to the diamond wedding bands? design. Some men with a keen fashion sense may prefer stylish wedding bands that suit their taste and lifestyle.
The width and durability of band also counts men?s fingers are more masculine than women?s and it is important that the width of the band suit his finger.
Women?s taste is different from men?s. In the women?s eyes, price may not be one of their top priorities. Various factors like style and color of stone play a part in the decision to pick the right wedding band. No two women are alike and more often than not, we can find women choosing the band that matches their wedding gown in a bid to want to everything to be perfect.
The critical aspect that led me to decide to purchase a particular diamond wedding band is the attitude of the staff. I must be able to sense his/her sincerity and genuineness in helping customers in choosing the right pair of bands that is symbolic of the event of their lifetime.
Choosing wedding bands is not a simple process. It is like a diamond wedding band, which symbolizes eternity, making choices together as a couple is supposed to last a life-time.
