Wedding & Eternity Rings - Choosing The Perfect Pair
Choosing your wedding rings is a celebration, and at Prestons celebrations start with champagne. Each of our showrooms offer an extensive range of wedding bands designed and created by British manufacturers in a variety of precious metals, unique finishes and some featuring beautifully hand-set gemstones.
It is as important to us as it is to you to find your perfect wedding ring that is why our experienced and knowledgeable staff will guide you through our extensive collection to find a wedding ring that’s perfect for both you and your partner. Most couples shop for wedding bands together after the proposal and often choose silhouettes, precious metals or finishes that complement each other.
Whether you are looking for a matching pair, something that suits your own style or a band designed around an engagement ring, we are sure to have something perfect. Of course, all our wedding rings come with complimentary engraving and a lifetime of instore cleaning and polishing.
At Prestons our wedding ring selection is divided into four distinctive categories: plain, diamond set, patterned and mixed metal.
Plain: Our selection of plain wedding bands are available in a vast variety of precious metals, shapes and widths. Each ring is hand-crafted and sized to fit you perfectly.
Diamond Set: Our selection of diamond set wedding rings are both timeless and elegant. Each is hand-crafted using a variety of diamond cuts from round brilliant to princess. It is also possible to have a wedding ring set with coloured gemstones as well as diamonds, for example blue sapphire and white diamond.
If you are looking at a diamond set wedding ring there are many factors you may wish to consider including the cut of the diamonds. Many of our clients choose to match or compliment their engagement ring with the cut of the diamonds placed into their wedding ring.
Patterned: Our selection of patterned wedding rings are available in an array of patterns and finishes, ranging from a beveled edge through to a matte finish.
Mixed Metal: At Prestons our selection of mixed metal wedding rings offers you an assortment of unique and distinctive combinations including rose gold, yellow gold, white gold, platinum or palladium.
When you are choosing your wedding ring 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.
The width of your chosen wedding ring is not only important from a style perspective but also for the comfort and size of your ring. Our showrooms carry an extensive selection of wedding rings ranging from 2mm to 8mm but our team can create and design rings up to 12mm.
Of course, if you are looking to wear your wedding ring alongside another ring or to accompany an engagement ring it may be worth considering the width of the two rings together. Our in-store team can advise you on appropriate widths as well as the sizing of your wedding ring.
When choosing the finish of your wedding ring you may wish to consider the finish you would like. Our showrooms offer a selection of finishes to make your wedding ring completely individual. These finishes include: polished, brushed, matte, hammered and many more.
Bespoke Wedding Rings & Made to Fit Wedding Rings
If you are looking for a bespoke wedding ring or a wedding which is shaped to fit perfectly around your engagement ring, then the process of choosing your perfect ring is slightly different.
Many of our customers consider creating a bespoke wedding ring for sentimental reasons, this process allows you to incorporate a particular style that may be similar to someone close to you or you may wish to incorporate stones from another piece of jewellery into your wedding ring.
At Prestons our bespoke jewellery designer, Katrina Young, can hand sketch a variety of options in-store for you ensuring we create your vision accurately.
Wedding Ring Engraving
Engraving is the perfect way to add a personal touch or to make to your wedding ring completely unique. At Prestons we offer an extensive selection of engraving styles and techniques to ensure your engraving is every bit as special as the moment it represents.
Engraving can be used to add a variety of personal messages ranging from a particular date, to a loved one’s hand-writing, from a photo engraving to the engraving of a finger print.
Please note, not all wedding and eternity rings can be engraved so please discuss this with your local showroom for further information.
