3724 Ashwood Drive Essex, (PressExposure) April 20, 2009 -- Nothing says commitment louder than a wedding band. So how exactly do you choose your symbol of commitment before the wedding day comes?
Wedding bands between couples became common in the late 19th century when industries were developing and people had money to spare for jewelry. Before that, itâs rare for men to wear a wedding band on their finger much less jewelry on their body. The women usually wore these adornments as a symbol of their marriage. Nowadays, it isnât uncommon for men to wear wedding bands, but they still keep the design to a minimum.
Wedding bands comes in an array of material and design to fit any couples style. Metals such as yellow gold, white gold, platinum, and even tungsten are used to create these lovely jewelry and they are crafted into intricate design according to the buyers wish. My personal favorite would be the tungsten wedding band, which Iâll explain later why.
Each type of metal used on wedding bands has their own unique characteristics and they do differ greatly in price. So itâs better if you ask around and know which type will fit your sense of style and your budget.
I mentioned that my personal favorite was the tungsten wedding band. Some people asked how come someone like me would prefer something like tungsten. Like I said before, a wedding band should fit the one wearing it. Tungsten wedding bands are simply exquisite for me, they are scratch proof and donât tarnish through wear and tear, they are light weight and at the time they were pretty affordable compared to platinum which, might I add, looks exactly the same.
An important reminder when picking a wedding band is that both you and your partner should be present when looking for your pair. These wedding bands will be a simple of your everlasting commitment and would be worn till death do you part. So better make it count and pick a wedding band that both of you will like and also will fit perfectly to your fingers.
