Shop just once; get diamond wedding ring sets
Diamond wedding ring sets are a relatively new phenomenon where you get a mans wedding band, the lady’s band and her engagement ring all in one set.
What a way we’ve come!!
In generations past….especially in the U.S. and the United Kingdom, wedding bands were worn mainly by women. Men didn’t even get one.
both partners get to wear a wedding ring which shouldn’t really leave your finger.
This is unless you are a manual laborer, working in a unsafe environment where it can be a danger to you or your workmates or for personal comfort.
You may also have an issue with declaring that you are married by wearing a ring or have allergy to precious metals (Yes it happens; they aren’t being cheap!)
Its only since the 1940’s that the double-ring ceremony really took of and men got to take home a ring after their wedding vows.
The American Jewelry Industry wised up around this time and realized that by neglecting men, they were loosing out on a big chunk of revenue so wedding bands were popularized.
How do diamond wedding ring sets work?
Well the men’s diamond wedding bands are on their own. What is unique is the woman’s rings. They come as a slender band on to which an engagement ring is placed.
So before the wedding, a slender band or a diamond ring guard is mounted on the engagement ring giving you a permanent wedding ring.
There are two schools of thought when it comes to wearing diamond ring sets.
- One is that the wedding ring should be worn above the heart showing complete transition from being engaged to married.
- The other is to wear the wedding ring below the engagement ring thus having it closer to the heart.
There are no hard and fast rules here…..I reckon you should just be grateful that you are lucky enough to find someone willing to say I DO to you!
If you are planning to make a certain woman very happy and make her your wife, you will not go wrong with wedding ring sets.
You will save money as you will buy your wedding band, her engagement ring and wedding ring all at one place & you can even bargain further than the set price.
You also won’t have the hassle of shopping again for the separate rings so you get to kill two birds with one stone; nice!!
So for the man who is smart, frugal (but not cheap) yet stylish diamond wedding ring sets just can’t be beat.
