How to Select the Right Wedding Ring
Wedding season is officially on in Hollywood as a number of A List celebrities got hitched over this past weekend.
Carrie Underwood, Megan Fox, and John Krasinski and Emily Blunt are among those who exchanged rings.
David Mamane, CEO of MyJewelryBox.com offers these tips to celebrities and other brides and grooms about tying the knot.
1. Choose a band that matches the material of your engagement ring, if her engagement ring is platinum; purchase her a platinum wedding band. Re-visiting the same store that the engagement ring was purchased from is always a good idea. The three most popular wedding bands are yellow gold, white gold and platinum. White gold is popular because it coordinates with both silver and gold and is less expensive than platinum. Yellow gold is traditional, but be sure to look into the karats. Nine karat does not look as nice and will not hold up as well as 18 karat, but more karats means a bigger price tag.
2. Shop together; this ensures that everyone gets what they want
3. Choose a style that compliments your fingers and hand. If you have a larger finger, a thick band will look more attractive than a thin band, while skinny fingers tend to look better with a small, simple, band.
4. Take into consideration what you do for a living; if you work in construction, you want a wedding band that will withstand how much abuse it will take.
