First, however, a basic rule of thumb is to think about the type of person they are, whether they are flashy or classic, and go from there.
How Do You Propose?
Once you’ve picked the perfect ring, you must decide how you’ll pop the question of marriage! This may be as simple as taking your partner out for dinner and bending the knee or taking them on an overseas getaway with a grand adventure that ends in a dramatic question being asked. Either way, we have some guides to help you below!

The color and material of your wedding ring is the most important choice you can make for the band! However, it is also one of the most challenging decisions for this very same reason.

How to Pick the Perfect Ring Materials?
Like colors, ring materials are essential for choosing the right wedding ring for you or your partner. Consider if you want something modern or classic. A classic ring is made of gold with a diamond-like inlaid gem as the signature piece. A modern ring uses unique combinations of materials, from wood to meteorite, to create something never before conceived in traditional ring production.

Why is Comfort Fit Better than Standard Fit Rings?
You want your wedding rings to look good, but they also have to feel good! That's why thinking about the health benefits of specific ring fits is crucial to narrowing down the suitable bands for your engagement.
Most rings you see are ‘standard fits’, and these might use fewer materials overall, but studies have shown that they are bad for the longevity of your ring finger. One alternative fit is the comfort ring sizing designed explicitly for easy ring wearing and encouraging better finger health.
How to Pick the Perfect Ring Pairing?
Many couples love to dress and wear matching rings, so why not get a wedding ring collection that ticks all these boxes? An easy way to find a paired ring set is to look at wedding band set collections to take the hassle out of finding a matching ring.
Sticking to the same ring maker will allow you to achieve these ends. In addition, they may be open to making you a custom-made design if you find the perfect design for one partner you can’t pass by on.

What's the Best Ring for Manual Labor?
Any ring-wearer knows you must be careful around manual jobs when wearing a precious ring. If you have large gems or ornate designs on your bands, the last thing you want is for them to get dirty or broken. You could invest in a simple ring made of sturdy materials and small inlays, or you could get a ring to wear in place of your real band when doing these messy jobs that you can’t avoid.
One great substitute is the free rubber rings gifted by Thorum with every ring purchase. Rubber is amenable, cosy, lightweight, and non-conductive, making it one of the best wedding ring saviors anyone could own.
We hope this post helps you find that perfect wedding ring and that you might’ve learnt something about the beautiful world of marriage bands. This post is just one of many that we have which will help you further in these endeavours.
