The tradition of exchanging rings at a wedding dates as far back as ancient Egyptian and Roman times. In the earliest marriage ceremonies, only the bride wore a ring to signify her devotion to her husband. These days, people equate the circular shape of the ring to eternity-a love that doesn't end and is never interrupted. As you prepare for your wedding, it's important to make sure the rings you choose are perfect.
How can you select the right wedding ring set? This is a process best shared between engaged couples, as this jewelry will be worn by both. Here are a few things to consider when shopping for rings:
Budget: How much money can you realistically spend on wedding rings? You'll find a variety of styles priced accordingly, with models ranging from around a hundred dollars to several thousand. This depends, of course, on the composition of the ring-is it a solid band, or encrusted with diamonds? Is it gold, platinum, or palladium?
Going into your wedding with the peace of mind that comes after selecting the right wedding rings will make for a wonderful ceremony, free of worry. Check your budget before you prepare to buy, and make a practical yet attractive choice.
