Bridal Wedding Ring Set, Wedding Rings ?
Q: I'm getting married in Sep 01 and I would like anyone's opinion as if it's
to early to buy the wedding rings? we are trying to buy most things now so
we don't have lots of things to pay for nearer the time. any thoughts would
be greatly appreciated.
A:Rings are definitely something you can and probably should buy early. There are just so many little details to see to the closer you get to your wedding, so I think you should do the non-time critical stuff as early as possible. I can't see any reason why you shouldn't get your rings now. I also had to order my fiance's ring six months in advance because his fingers are too big and we couldn't get the Celtic design we wanted unless we had it specially made. If we'd left it too late to get the rings we wouldn't have been able to get that particular style. What kind of rings are you interested in? You can get sterling silver ones pretty cheaply; various types of plain gold bands are also very reasonable. Platinum ones with diamonds in them are very expensive. You name a price range, I'll find you a ring :). I suggest you a) figure out what type of "look" you like in a ring, b) make sure there are no religious constraints as to what type of ring you must have, c) figure out how much you can afford to spend, and d) find a reputable, trusted jeweler! Then you should have no trouble finding rings you like. My fiance?(C) and I have decided to get each other very non traditional rings, i.e. no diamonds. The diamond industry is set up to place a guilt trip on starry eyed couples, and put them in debt. Both of us have purchased lovely rings for the other that include stones that are special to each one of us. It makes the ring not only more affordable (that is not the primary reason), but more meaningful. The 2 month Salary rule, and "A diamond is forever" motto, have been cooked up by clever markeeters, and sales people to make the wedding industry what it is, a big money grab. My fiance?(C) and I are going to have a lovely wedding on OUR budget, and our rings will be just as meaningful as any diamond solitaire. You can take the money that would be spent on diamonds, and use it for better quality gold, a nicer stone of her choice, or on any other aspect of your wedding that you choose to use it on. Take my advice, step back, think about it, and make a purchase that you'll be proud of, and not regret.
