How Do I Match My Wedding Band?

How Do I Match My Wedding Band

What’s the point of a wedding band?

A wedding band is the symbolic personification of the purity of marriage. It is the one thing that artfully, blatantly and perfectly symbolizes that you are in fact married. It also has the added benefit of warding off unwanted attention. But other than this what is the point of it?

Well, the most basic need for a wedding band is for cultural value. The wedding band is an important bauble of marriage as it shows the rest of the world that you have entered a new part of your life. The band also serves as a reminder for you and your spouse of the vows and promises that you have made to each other. In many cultures over the world, the wedding band is actually the most sacred part of the whole marriage affair. It is a mark of partnership and not ownership because two people have come together to live out their lives in harmony with each other.

Now that we have established that the wedding band is so important, we should also talk about how to buy one that doesn’t eclipse the engagement ring but compliments i.e. match it. Remember though, while on the lookout, buy cheap wedding rings that are worth their price. After all, you’ve already spent a fortune on the engagement ring so it’s better to buy a cheap wedding ring than an unnecessarily expensive one.

Complimenting the wedding band to the engagement ring 

After you’ve found a place like https://www.findurings.com where you can find a wedding band that is both cheap yet of top quality, you can start the process of finding a wedding that perfectly matches the engagement ring you put on your spouses’ finger.

Few easy steps to help you match your engagement ring to your wedding band

Here are a few simple steps to help you on the way of finding a cheap wedding band that perfectly matches your fiancé’s engagement ring!

1. Choose the perfect style: The first step to choosing anything in the world of fashion i.e. clothing and jewelry is to choose the perfect style. You have to first decide whether you want a simple wedding band or one that has a bit pizazz in it? Or a wedding band that embodies the word bling. Choose the style that is perfect for you and your spouse.

2. Stone color: If your engagement ring has a particular colored gem or stone running through it then you could always match your wedding band by that color scheme as well.

3. Stone shape: Another way to go in matching your respective rings is through having a similar stone shape in both the engagement ring and the wedding band. Remember that since you can’t spend as much as you did on the engagement ring, and you want the wedding band to be cheaper, you could ask the jeweler to place a smaller stone on the wedding band than the one on the engagement ring.

4. Metal kind: The basic step in matching the two pieces of jewelry is buying both of them in the same metal type. If the engagement ring you bought is in gold then it’s definitely better to have your wedding band in gold as well.

5. Traditional vs modern: In many families it is traditional to pass on a certain ring from daughter-in-law to daughter-in-law, in this case even though the ring itself is very expensive, the price you pay is zilch so you can splurge on a more modern wedding band that is still cheap yet compliments the traditional aspect of the engagement ring itself. The combination of old and new will showcase the keeping of past and present in their future marriage as well for the happy couple.

6. Complimentary set: You could also have both the engagement ring and the wedding band made at the same time so that both are made complementary to each other and you won’t have to go through the hassle of finding a matching wedding band later.

Now that you know the best way to find a match for your wedding band and keep it within your pricing range hurry up and find the perfect place where you can find cheap wedding bands of top-notch quality. A place like Find U Rings where you can find any kind of wedding band you want to match it perfectly with the engagement ring you already bought or will buy for your fiancé. Oh! You could even have the wedding band engraved! If you’re keeping it simple, you could always turn it into something extra by having a small quote or cherished date engraved on the band.

Ateliers deMonaco offers a unique timepiece to support  the 2019 Only Watch auction

Born as an Haute Horlogerie brand, Ateliers deMonaco is all about design, performance, technology, innovation, and craftsmanship.

Founded in 2008, the Maison counts 6 in-house movements combining tradition and high-end watchmaking know-how with technical innovation.

Pim Koeslag, co-founder, a master watchmaker and CEO of the brand has made his dream come true when he first created his own tourbillon minute repeater movement. Today, he proudly presents another spectacular masterpiece: the Tourbillon Oculus 1297 Only Watch.

The Tourbillon Oculus 1297 Only Watch

Equipped with the manufacture dMc-980 calibre, the watch is designed, produced, and assembled in Ateliers deMonaco’s workshops. Its patented tourbillon movement called Tourbillon XP1 (eXtreme Precision 1 minute) is one of the most precise in the world with a tolerance between 0 to 2 seconds per 24 hours.

The hand-decorated caliber boasts chamfering, circular graining and satin-finishing decorations, a 22k gold rotor representing the Principality of Monaco’s crown and includes a silicium escape wheel and lever.

A major innovation for this timepiece is its 44mm watch case made from a technique used in the automotive industry called forged carbon. For this timepiece, Ateliers deMonaco developed a new method including 18k gold in the process: carbon fibre, gold, and resin are mixed together and placed in a mold. The mixture is then heated and pressed to form a block. After the molding process, the case is meticulously refined to achieve the perfect shape. Thanks to this exclusive method, the case is thus unique.

The timepiece features a multi-layered decentred dial treated with dark grey PVD and is decorated with a lozenge pattern in relief. Roman numerals and dauphine hands finally come to complete the already beautifully detailed dial.

Hours and minutes can be read on the dial while the small seconds can be read on the Tourbillon opening at 6 o’clock.

A smoke-grey alligator leather strap with nubuck finishing brings additional character to this unique watch.

Ateliers deMonaco is proud to donate this one-of-a-kind timepiece to the Only Watch biennial auction, Only Watch supporting the treatment of muscular dystrophy diseases and pushing the boundaries of science.

It is one of the most expensive stones in the world with its dazzling glow, magnificence, and majesty. Due to its hardness properties, it is a mineral that is not damaged under the soil. Diamond cut used to be made with diamonds. But with the developing technology, it can now be cut off with a laser. It is a hard-drawn and solid material. Starting from the 19th century, it was started to be processed as a precious stone. Due to the special interest of women in diamonds, in the wholesale diamonds loose market has created a huge potential, especially in the last 50 years. Today, diamond trade is in the heyday period because of the interest of women.

Women’s Diamond Love

The diamond represents elegance. Diamond is also a symbol of love. Because having a strong disposition of the diamond means strong love. The relationship between women and diamonds is so passionate that it never ends. When women buy diamonds, they often prefer wholesale diamonds loose stores.

How to choose a diamond?

Diamond is not a jewel that everyone can understand the quality of. If you are not familiar with this, we strongly recommend that you shop at a store that you can trust. Especially when you buy wholesale loose diamonds, examine the diamond you will buy. The diamond certificate should be the first criterion to be considered. When you purchase a certified product, you are assured that it is inspected by the gemology laboratory. So it prevents you from buying fake diamonds. But remember, some labs may not be as reliable as you think. Just because the diamond is too big doesn’t mean it’s quality. After you decide how to use the diamond, buy it. You can buy loose diamonds online such as Petra Gems. There’s nothing to worry with that. But you only have to choose the stores you are sure. If you buy directly from the store, you can check whether it suits you and buy it by sight. Both buying ways are also convenient. Choose the diamonds that excite you, suit you and express your love. Rather than the price, it is more important to suit you. Don’t expect to be given to you by a man. Indulge yourself!
