Let’s start with the top 3 questions you should ask yourself before picking a wedding ring
# 1 When is the right time for Wedding Rings?
Your wedding is such a special day, and one you may have planned in your mind for years. It is an occasion to be shared with family and friends and marks a new chapter in your journey together.
If you are reading this then you are probably the bride, and let’s be honest you are probably going to do the lion’s share of the organising. When planning a wedding there are so many things to take into account, not to mention budgeting for them.
So it’s important to make wedding rings a priority, so for decades of happiness to come you want your wedding rings to remind you of your unique love story and the happy memories of your special day.
# 2 When should I organise my wedding rings?
People often ask, “How soon should I organise my wedding rings before the wedding?” My advice is to start the process of wedding rings at least 6 months prior to your day.
Six months may sound like a long time but the selection of wedding ring styles available is extensive and you want to be able to take your time.
Also, you don’t want to be stressed waiting for rings one week before your special day. Having time on your side is also crucial for any alterations that may need to be made.
# 3 How long does it take to make a wedding ring?
For a ladies wedding ring, we usually allow between 2 and 3 weeks – especially if we are custom making the wedding ring to match the engagement ring.
Our Master Jewellers expertly craft the wedding ring to make it look like it was made by the same jeweller, at the same time as your engagement ring. To do this, they will need to keep your engagement ring for at least a week.
For a gentlemen’s ring, the time frame can be a little longer and I would allow a minimum of 4 weeks, as some of the rings are made in Europe.
So what are you waiting for?
While 6 months is a guide, you can really start as soon as you want. Just imagine how great it would be to tick that “To Do” box early! Most reputable jewellers will be happy for you to store your rings in their safe so you can pick them up the week of the wedding. So, find a jeweller who specializes in wedding rings and start the process now!
