Aaaaah the wedding rings, this symbol that thrills everyone and that we wave under the noses of the girlfriends as soon as the gentleman puts the ring on us. It is so much joy!
We would almost forget the second ring charged with emotion that we will wear all his life: his wedding ring.And we understand you, the wedding preparations are so addicting that many of you go about it at the last moment for your alliances and we would like to avoid this mistake. Today, we have therefore joined forces with the very beautiful, modern and ethical jewelery Courbet to tell you why you should take time for your wedding rings too and why you should do it now.
A lifelong alliance
Many young brides tell us how much they underestimated the choice of their wedding ring and tell us that they bought them in haste barely a month before their wedding from the first jeweler who could make them quickly.
They realize a little late that it is very difficult to change alliance once the marriage has passed. Because symbolically, the alliances exchanged on the wedding day have an irreplaceable symbolic charge . Not to mention that when you get married in church, these covenants are sacred. You must therefore choose this alliance carefully because it will accompany you every day of your life while being irreplaceable. You have months of preparations ahead of you, so we advise you to take care of your wedding rings now, much like your wedding rings, take advantage of the fact that you are calm.
An alliance for everyday life
No other jewelry (apart from your wedding rings,) will accompany you as long as your wedding ring, parting one day here, one day there like your usual jewelry will not be an option. This wedding ring will be on your left ring finger every day of your life! You should pay the same attention to it, if not more than your wedding dress.
Your alliance must therefore meet precise specifications:
1 / Be resistant to withstand the vagaries of everyday life: you must choose a quality ring
2 / Go with everything, don't risk getting bored: you must choose a ring that is timeless and not too “trendy”
3 / Make you proud day after day: don't buy it anywhere, the ethical question is important in the jewel
You must therefore take the time to go with your fiance to look, compare, try on wedding rings in store, you will see it is also a great time to spend in love. Nothing will be worth the time spent projecting yourself into this jewel that will accompany you every day after your wedding.
A ring that stands up to everyday life
If you have to put the price in a jewel, it is this one, you have no idea yet what it will have to resist on a daily basis. Yes, you will see, it is a ring that you will only very rarely remove for fear of losing it, it will have to withstand the shock like any other jewel you have in your possession. You therefore need a very good quality wedding ring that will withstand all your daily gestures without flinching.
With your alliance you will: cook, clean (and its corrosive products), sport, gardening,The choice of alloy:
We advise you to choose minimum 18 carat gold and avoid silver or plated which is less resistant and requires more maintenance. Your alliance must above all be foolproof. With or without stone? The choice of stone is more a matter of style. A ring with a stone will be less discreet but do you want to be discreet with your wedding ring? A jewel that represents your union, your love deserves a little extra. Keep in mind that a ring with a stone will always be a little more fragile than a wedding ring without a stone and that it will require more maintenance.
A ring that makes you proud
It's a question dear to us: if you have to wear a ring every day of your life, don't you want to look good on it? As we know today, most stones are mined in countries at war in sometimes dramatic conditions and it will sometimes be difficult for you to know where they come from.
Today we can no longer ignore the environmental and social impact of mining, so what to do? Some major brands now offer cultured diamonds entirely created in the laboratory (as beautiful and resistant as mine diamonds) and recycled gold.
The idea of cultured diamonds is often misunderstood as it is today an incredible ecological solution. It is indeed now possible to "grow" in the laboratory stones from natural diamond shards. The synthetic diamond obtained is a diamond whose optical, physical and chemical characteristics are identical to those found at the bottom of mines.
They are therefore identical, but much more ethical, especially since it allows certain jewelry to be created almost entirely locally (the famous made in Australia) You don't want to look at your wedding ring (or your engagement ring) every day wondering what happened to undermine the diamond ...If you want a wedding ring with a diamond, you can definitely consider this solution. A ring that goes with everything
Big jewelry fans will tell you that everything goes with everything! Certainly.But in practice? In real life ? In practice, all you have to do is know how to recognize the type of wedding ring that matches your style… clothing. For example, if you are the discreet mouse type, the jewels which correspond to you are fine rushes and stones of small caliber: 2, 3, 4, 5 mm to the large maxi-mum.
If you are the classic type, elegant cuts and beautiful materials, you will like stones with timeless chic like diamonds or moissanite. There is also a good chance that your favorite mount will be the solitaire: with claws or not, paved or alone.
Finally, if you are the extrovert type and want to wear your wedding ring like a banner, if you like to surprise and experiment, then all the possibilities are open to you! For fittings, wear your favorite outfit, the one that saves you bad days, that matches you 100% and when trying on your wedding ring, look at yourself in the mirror (remember, we judge a ring by looking at yourself in the mirror , not looking at his hand).
Maintain your alliance
Rest assured, it is quite normal for a piece of jewelry (and even more so, a ring) worn every day to show some signs of wear, regardless of its quality. For cleaning, nothing could be simpler: use a very soft brush and soapy water, especially on the center stones. Obviously, avoid rubbing the pavings too insistently;) To make the gold and platinum shine, you just need to put a suede on your ring! And she will live forever!
