If you do not know the history of the wedding ring, you can find details of the origins on the american gem society website, a tradition which they can trace back to Egypt over 4,800 years ago. Whatever the history is, if you want to show your partner just how special they are in your eyes, you should consider having custom wedding rings created and make a statement on how much you love them. When you have custom rings made, you may also even save a little money when compared to the price of off-the-shelf rings.
It is important that when you have custom rings made for your wedding that you design them to match the taste and style of your partner. It is also important to make sure that the ring is of a practical design to be worn every day, and not too ostentatious. The ring should complement the engagement ring, and as engagement rings are often a little glitzier, most people will go with an understated design so as not to distract from the engagement ring.
Before you can start shopping, you will need to have an idea of what it is that you want for your wedding rings. What type of metal they will be made from, as well as any precious stones that you wish to include. You do not have to be an artist and draw detailed images of what you want, just as long as you are clear in your mind and can articulate this to potential jewellery designers. When you know what it is that you want, it is then time to start shopping!
