If there’s one thing we do a lot of at Stewart Kuper Jewelers it’s helping couples pick out engagement and wedding rings for brides and grooms in our one-on-one appointments.

This time we’re going to talk about how to go about picking out wedding rings for women (or men; the tips are the same!) If you have no idea where to start, don’t sweat it. Read on and we’ll help you out!
How to Pick Wedding Rings for Women
Start With Your Style and Lifestyle
Before you go through case after case of rings, think about your own personal style. What do you already own and wear? What kind of pieces catch your eye when you’re looking through a case? There are a few reasons why starting with what you already wear and style with is a good idea. For one, you’ll be wearing this wedding ring for a long time to come, so picking something that already suits your current style means you’ll be starting off every day on the right foot. Second, many wedding rings become family heirlooms over time and having a ring that matches you, that is uniquely you, will give your loved ones something to keep and cherish.
While you’re considering your current style, also think about what your day-to-day life is like. This might help you better understand the needs you’ll have in a ring, especially in the metal it’s made of. If you’re incredibly active maybe you’ll want a ring with stones set in a particular way to keep them from catching on something.
Set a Budget
Of course, setting a budget is a hugely useful thing to do when ring shopping as it gives you some boundaries, some guidelines to start your shopping. So have an idea of what your budget will be before you step foot in the showroom.
Start Your Shopping Soon and Shop Together!
Shopping for wedding rings as early as six months ahead of the wedding is absolutely critical! This allows for plenty of time for the ring to be made and with all of the other pressing items on a bride and groom’s To-Do list, getting the rings sorted out early will be a huge help. And finding the perfect engagement ring and wedding band can take time. So start early!
Since you and yours will both be wearing wedding rings, go shopping together! It’s a fun couple activity. Searching for the right ring might mean bouncing ideas off your significant other, and even planning rings around each other’s ring. It can also help to have someone there to offer an opinion of what looks good on you. So start early, and shop together!
Consider Your Engagement Ring
Keep your engagement ring in mind when it comes time to pick out a wedding band as often they’re worn together! So think about how they will complement each other when they’re stacked next to each other. If you have a flush-fit engagement ring it’ll be easier for you to find a wedding band that will fit perfectly, meanwhile if your ring doesn’t then you might have to look for a wedding ring with a specific band or even get one custom-made if you want them to sit alongside each other perfectly.
And, above all else…
We are here to help you! If you have any questions, ask them! Be clear and open with your budget and desires. Any jeweler worth their salt wants you to be happy more than they want to sell a ring. We want to build a lifelong relationship with you.
