Wedding preparation doesn't have to be daunting. You and your partner are on a special journey together, and we want to help. We've created a wedding ring checklist to cover the frequently asked questions with expert advice.
When Should You Purchase Your Wedding Rings?
Purchasing your wedding rings is not a decision you want to rush!
At The Jewel Hut we recommend purchasing your rings three months prior to the big day. While our wedding rings can be made to size and ready to wear in 3 weeks, you should allow room for if you change your mind about the ring or want any adjustments made.
The three months also allows time for you to find the perfect wedding rings and enjoy the process, rather than feeling the stress of strict time constraints.
How Much Should Your Wedding Ring Cost?
How much you want to spend is something for you and your partner to discuss and decide together. You may want to consider your earnings and expenses when it comes to creating an affordable budget for your wedding rings.
It's important to bear in mind that a wedding ring is a special purchase that you may wear for the rest of your life. While you want to look stunning in your dress or suit on the big day, it's the ring you will wear long after the ceremony. You want to make sure it's a perfect fit and style for you. However, the perfect wedding ring doesn't have to be expensive - we sell quality precious metal wedding bands under £100.
Do You Want Matching Rings?
Couples often have matching or similar wedding ring styles. However, you may have different ring styles in mind. This is something that you will want to consider before you start searching for wedding rings.
What's Your Wedding Ring Style?
Plain, Shaped, or Stone-Set
The traditional wedding ring style is a plain yellow gold metal band. This offers a classic and elegant look.
However, you can also purchase stone-set and shaped wedding rings. Popular shaped wedding rings include, the wishbone, twist, and dipped. These are designed to shape perfectly around your engagement ring.
What Metal Wedding Band Should I Get?
First things first, your choice of wedding ring must complement the metal that features on your engagement ring. To maintain the quality of the metal, you should choose a ring that has the same grade. So if you have an 18ct gold engagement ring, we recommend you choose an 18ct wedding ring.
This is important for the overall feel of the ring on your finger. You want to choose the ring profile that feels most comfortable.
Rings come in many shapes and sizes. For slender, shorter fingers we recommend a thinner ring width, while a larger finder tends to suit a wider ring width.
Edges refer to the designs around the ring's outer edge. Styles include beaded, scalloped, and lined edges.

Finance Options and Insurance
While many of us don't want to think about it, when it comes to expensive and precious jewellery purchases, you may want to consider purchasing insurance to cover the cost of loss or damage to your wedding rings. At The Jewel Hut we also offer 0% interest free credit on rings over £280 to help you spread the cost.
