Welcome to Wedding Ring Buying Guide.
I’ve created this site to be a comprehensive one-stop educational and advice guide for men and women looking to purchase engagement and wedding rings. Since I have been involved in the jewelry industry most of my life, as my friends began to get engaged and married many of them starting asking me for ring advice; what type of metal to choose for their rings, the value of different sized diamonds, how much a gold wedding band should cost vs. a platinum one, etc. As I did research online, I realized that there were tons of people searching for advice on wedding rings, engagement rings, and bridal sets, but most advice sites seemed to focus solely on how to buy the best diamond for the money, without going into at all, what type of metal to choose, setting options, or styles. If they did mention engagement or wedding ring styles, they all seemed to assume that most people wanted to purchase the most standard available styles, and never even mentioned designer rings, antique rings, or colored stone options. Seeing this, I’ve tried to create a wedding and engagement ring guide that will be helpful to those looking for styles ranging from the traditional, to the contemporary, to the antique. I hope to make it comprehensive without overwhelming. I have started with the fundamentals and will be continually adding to the site.
