Finding the Perfect Ring
The perfect wedding ring can be more difficult than choosing an engagement ring. This is the one;
this is forever. Will it match your husband’s? Are you a gold or white gold or even rose gold girl, boy,
couple? Will it match your engagement stone? Here are the top things to consider.
If you are going traditional, you will probably want to go simple; this very special ring has got to be
hardwearing – especially if, like my mother (and her mother) you are determined not to remove it
for the sake of tradition or superstition. So, plain band should be your starting point.
This sparkle band from Italian jewellery designer Carolina Bucci at Astley Clarke, London is a modern and fresh take on the ladies wedding band. Plain rings, don’t have to be plain at all. This textured ring in white gold is the perfect wedding ring to complement your engagement ring as well as your husband or partner’s ring. The fine sparkle finish in 18 carat white gold will really make your wedding ring stand out against even the largest of engagement stones and the 4mm thickness is a luxurious choice of width meaning your wedding ring will look spectacular when worn alone.
For a fresh, masculine choice, this 18 carat brushed white gold men’s band by Astley Clarke Bridal has an elegant modern design with a fine matt finish. This 5mm band is the traditional mid-weight band thickness and is also available in other metals and finishes, so it is possible to match both rings in finish as well as metal and thickness if desired.
Jewelled eternity or half-eternity have come into fashion as bridal and even men’s rings! Better matched to a stone-heavy ring or a large solitaire style engagement ring, a jewelled wedding ring will enhance your engagement ring and look outstanding alone. Bear in mind that should a stone be lost, it will have to be removed to be mended; these rings are not for the superstitious or very traditional.
The Celesse ring (pictured) is an 18 carat platinum-set brilliant-cut diamond half eternity with a total
diamond weight of 0.13 carats. At 3mm, this slim ring is very flattering on a larger hand and really is
the ultimate in bridal bling.
