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 60 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.
Can’t find the ring you had imagined? Our team would be delighted to help with your enquiry and it may even be possible to adapt a ring style to suit your specific requirements.
THINK ABOUT YOUR ENGAGEMENT RING
Ladies, choose a ring that sits perfectly with your engagement ring. Both rings signify a special moment in your life so be mindful to pick a wedding ring that complements your engagement ring.
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! A few things to consider are:
• 18ct white, yellow or rose gold will be hard wearing.
• White gold is coated with rhodium to create that beautiful bright white finish. Rhodium will wear over time (this is perfectly normal) so your ring will need to be re-coated from time to time. If you purchase your wedding rings from Drakes, your first 3 re-rhodium’s are on us!
• Platinum is undoubtedly the strongest jewellery metal. It is resistant to damage and it will never ever tarnish.
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.
