7 ways to choose the perfect wedding ring
Wedding rings in silver and gold, platinum and carbon fiber, diamonds and gemstones. Ceramics and trendy design. Zirconium, steel and titanium. Which one should you choose?
Our ultimate ring buying guide will help you choose a wedding ring you love.
You may already have the engagement ring on your finger and it’s time to choose the perfect wedding ring. Or maybe you want to choose engagement ring and wedding ring at the same time. We have the information you want to read before the call purchase, and before you say YES I DO. Check out our guide on all the important factors to consider.
1 – Focus on what you are looking for and limit the search to the ring styles you want and can afford.
Diamonds or gemstones, platinum or gold – reducing the selection of ring options to look at can seem difficult, but don’t panic, just take one step at a time. Start with style: Are you thinking of a simple plain wedding ring or something that attracts more attention? Do you want your wedding ring to be of the same metal as your engagement ring? Do you think your and your partner’s rings should match? Find out the answer to such questions first so you can start looking for the right options.
2 – Consider buying the engagement ring and wedding ring at the same time.
If you prefer to be surprised with the engagement ring instead of choosing it yourself this may not work, but knowing what the engagement ring looks like can help you make a decision. For example, if you have a unique very ornate engagement ring, you may want a simpler wedding ring, while a simple engagement ring may require the extra sparkle of the wedding ring, perhaps with a diamond. Also consider how the rings fit together. If you plan to wear the engagement ring and wedding ring side by side, 24/7, look for rings of the same height.
If, on the other hand, you plan to wear only the wedding ring, you can look for a slightly wider and higher ring.
3 – Start your ring search early
Once you have a basic idea of what kind of ring you want, it’s time to start looking. Do it at least two to three months before the wedding date, if it is a very special model or maybe even with a custom made design according to your own wishes you will probably need even longer.

4 – Don’t get stuck on a style
I like this, you like that! You don’t have to find a model that you both love. Many of our rings fit perfectly together even though they are from different collections. The important thing is that the rings reflect each ones style and personality, and that you both are satisfied.
5 – Make a budget
At Rings of Sweden you can easily and quickly see the prices of all the ring collections, no need to ask one by one. You don’t have to look through the rings one by one opening several windows to get a clear overview of the price of our engagement rings and wedding rings.
You will always see the price of the wedding ring collections at first glance and you can quickly determine if the ring price fits your budget. Internal engraving is always included when you shop with us, and it is actually the engraving that makes the ring absolutely unique and personal.
6 – Have your lifestyle in mind
Remember that you will wear the ring every day. Think about your work and your leisure activities. Gemstones and precious metals can become damaged if you work a lot with your hands. Some metals such as platinum are more durable than gold, flat rings gather less dirt, etc. Ask us if you find a ring model and want it in a different metal.
7 – Think long term
Although one should not be afraid of being trendy, one should keep in mind that the wedding ring is for life and fashion trends change over time. Classic doesn’t have to mean boring. Our ring collections are carefully selected to combine fashion, elegance and timeless design.
