Wedding & Engagement Bands

Since your engagement or wedding ring is unique, you need to make an effort for it to be one of a kind, perfect and exclusive. We have put together a guide to help you with some tips while buying the perfect ring for your partner.

Ring Size – Picking out the perfect ring can be a tedious, time consuming task. After spending money and time you do not want to end up with a ring of the wrong size. We have a ring size guide & converter to help you choose the right size for your beautiful ring. However we would always recommend for best results to visit a local reputable jeweller to have your finger professionally measured.

Metal Colour & Style – Choosing the metal colour is an important factor while choosing wedding or engagement rings. Keeping your partner’s style in mind, you can choose from a variety of different metals – yellow gold, silver, rose gold. If your partner is drawn towards cooler tones, silver metal will be a good choice. For warmer hues, yellow gold and rose gold will suit better. You can also mix and match the metals for the perfect style best suited for your partner. Our bridal wedding rings collection has a variety of beautiful rings with mixed metal coatings of different designs and style.

Any warmer or cooler toned metal ring can give out a sparkling effect with gemstones studded on them.

Remember it is best to keep the same metal type for both your Engagement and Wedding Band (18kt with 18kt, 14kt with 14kt and so on). The most popular metal types for a Wedding and Engagement Ring would be 18kt or Platinum. Although we do not advertise 18kt or Platinum prices we also craft in these metals.
