A symbol of love & commitment

Choosing your wedding rings is always such a special event at Drakes, Plymouth.

Long after the confetti has blown away and the excitement of the day has faded, your wedding rings will be there to symbolise the love and commitment you made to each other when you said ‘I do’.

For over 70 years, we have had the pleasure of helping couples find their perfect wedding rings and over the years, how things have changed… Long gone are the days when all you had to choose from was a plain yellow gold band; today the choices are endless! Your wedding rings are something you will treasure for many years to come so it’s important to choose a ring which celebrates your personality! Here are a few tips:

Choose a ring that reflects your personality

The most important thing to remember is there are no rules when choosing your wedding rings. If you and your partner have different styles then embrace it. Remember, your rings do not need to match.

Metal and colour

Everyone has their own preference when it comes to metal and colour. With many choices available, make sure to pick a metal you will be happy to wear for the rest of your life!  Read our guide to find the right metal for you. 

A little sparkle

Thinking of choosing a wedding ring with diamonds? The most important thing to consider is quality. If you are opting for a ring with diamonds, always remember the 5C’s – colour, cut, clarity, carat weight and confidence. For more information on the 5C’s click here.

Think about your engagement ring
