Weddings

Wedding bands are kind of a serious deal. How do you tell someone you will love them forever with a little ring?

Picking out the perfect wedding band can be a stressful for deal for most engaged couples leading up to the big date. I know I have experienced the conversations and even gone out to a couple jewelry store with some of my friends that have recently tied the knot. Their are so many choices out there and so many different stores it can sometimes get overwelming.

The key with wedding band shopping, just as with anything else, is research. You got to get to out there to see what is out there. You have to know what you like before you make the big decision. There could be nothing worst than buying a ring you have to wear for the rest of your life on an impulse and then not liking it later on.

In my experiences (and I am by no means and expert) I have found Titanium-Jewelry.com to be a wealth of excellent information on all things jewelry. Personally I like their selection of tungsten rings, but that’s just me… feel free to take a look for yourself.

So not sure if any of you are in the marriage stage yet, but I surprisingly am. However, with engagement rings costing an average of $3,500 according to Ken Gassman, founder of the Jewelry Industry Research Institute. I’m not sure I can afford the typical “bling” for my blushing-soon-to-be-bride.

My lady, unlike many women, isn’t into materialistic items and I think she would be happy with just a simple titanium ring. One huge benefit about titanium rings is the price, with the range being more around $500-2,000, which is a lot more doable on my budget. But is it to cheap and chinsy as an engagement ring?  Don’t get me wrong, I want to give her the best but I think we could both agree that it’s not worth spending a month’s paycheck on one ring. Yes, it is the most important ring of her life but it’s not everything. Anyone have tips on engagement saving for this guy?

It’s weird to think that in the next five to ten years or so all my friends are going to be settling down and getting married. I’m only twenty-three and I’ve been to five weddings of my peers already this year and still have a few more to go before years end. My friends Kayla and Doug just got engaged and they have been on the topic of wedding bands for that last couple of weeks.

Lately I’ve been learning way more than I ever thought about different types of Jewelry. I seriously thought there was just classic gold and silver bands and thats all people bothered with. Yesterday Kayla told me about tungsten carbide and material that is becoming more and more popular for rings and other types of jewelry.

I guess Tungsten is a heavy stone material that is ranked as one of the hardest of metals and has been being used for over a hundred years now to make jewelry topped mostly with diamonds.

We all know diamonds are a girls best friend.
