Choosing your Wedding Rings

It’s been so lovely to see weddings back in full flow and everyone being able to enjoy this special occasion once again! Planning a wedding is an exciting journey although sometimes it does come with a little stress. Above all remember that it is your day, so it is important that you and your partner are happy with the choices you make. 

Your wedding rings are an important part of your day as they will forever be the symbol of the commitment you make to one another; long after your special day turns to happy memories. The good news is that when it comes to choosing your wedding rings, there is so much choice! That said, this can make choosing your rings a daunting experience but fear not, our friendly and knowledgeable team are on hand to help you along the way. 

So, what do you need to consider when choosing the perfect wedding ring?


Ordering times
Before we get to the exciting part, the burning question we always get asked is how long do wedding rings take to arrive once ordered? Each of the beautiful wedding rings we order are specially made with love for you. These rings are handcrafted so we’d always recommend allowing 4-6 weeks from the date of ordering before they arrive back in store ready for you to collect. If your wedding is less than 6 weeks away please do not panic! We do have other ring options available to order and purchase that can be with us sooner, just ensure our team are aware of your wedding date during your visit.

The First Rule is… There are no Rules
Gone are the days of your rings having to match. Everyone has their own metal preference, choice of both style and colour and we think this should be embraced. After all, this wedding ring is one that you’ll want to wear for the rest of your life, so it is important that you absolutely love it! 


It’s All About You
Not only do you want to find the ring you love, but you’ll also want to consider your lifestyle so you can enjoy wearing your ring with comfort. You may be looking for a metal that is more scratch resistant or perhaps a diamond ring that isn’t claw set. Plus, you’ll want to consider your engagement ring too. Our team can help you decide on the best metal type and style to suit you and your lifestyle.


Add the Personal Touch
Many of our rings come with free engraving. It is the perfect way to add the ultimate personal touch. This could be your wedding date, your partners name, song title, a short phrase or even pet names for one another. 


What you see in store isn’t everything…
Please do not be afraid to ask if you cannot see the ring you’ve always dreamt of. The majority of the wedding rings in store are available in whichever metal type you’d prefer. So just because you try on a ring in white gold but you’ve always dreamt of having yellow gold, doesn’t mean it’s not possible. 

Shape to Fit and Bespoke Options
We are also proud to offer a Bespoke Service so if, at first, you cannot find your dream wedding ring, you could opt to have your ring made using our bespoke service. Imagine the excitement of seeing your dream ring become a reality!

If you have a beautiful engagement ring with an unusual shape, our shape to fit service could be right for you. This service enables you to have a wedding ring perfectly shaped and fitted around your engagement ring.
