Prestons Guide

How to Choose The Perfect Pair of Wedding Rings?

Let our dedicated specialists guide you through our advice for selecting an exceptional wedding ring for you and your partner.

Each of our showrooms offer a comprehensive selection of wedding bands designed and created by British manufacturers in a variety of precious metals, unique finishes and some featuring beautifully hand-set with gemstones. It is as important to us as it is to you to find your perfect wedding ring so here, our dedicated teams offer some advice and guidance to making your selection.

The Design

Choosing your wedding rings is a big decision, it’s the rings that you will wear forever as a symbol of your marriage. The first thing that many couples often consider when selecting their wedding rings is the style of the bands they are looking for. Are you considering a matching pair? Is there a particular design you had in mind? Our showrooms will always enquire about your engagement ring as it may be that your ring requires a bespoke or made-to-fit wedding band.

The Metal

Once you have selected the style of wedding ring you and your partner would like it is important to consider your choice of metal. At Prestons we offer an array of precious metals to choose from including: white gold, rose gold, yellow gold, platinum and palladium.

If you are looking for a wedding ring which will sit alongside your engagement ring or another ring, it is important to look for the same metal to avoid any potential for damage or wear to either ring.

Set with Diamonds

Our selection of diamond set wedding rings are both timeless and elegant. Each is crafted using a variety of diamond cuts which many of our clients choose to match or compliment with their engagement ring. It is also possible to have a wedding ring set with coloured gemstones, as well as diamonds, if you are perhaps looking for a vintage inspired design.

The setting of your diamonds, much like your choice of precious metal, will be dependent on your lifestyle and your everyday activities.

Personal Touches

Once you have selected your wedding rings, it may be that you wish to add a final personal touch. This personal touch, for many, is often engraving. An engraving is the perfect way to add a personal touch, perhaps a quote or a saying, or to join your two rings together with the date of your wedding. At Prestons we offer a selection of engraving styles to ensure your engraving is every bit as special as the moment it represents.
