For some people, this is one of the trickiest things to do on the lead-up to a wedding. This does, after all, represent the most important piece of jewellery you’re likely to place on your body. Finding the right ring can be a bit like finding the right partner; it takes time, effort and hard work. However, when you’ve found the right one, you should find yourself happy for the rest of your life.

We thought we’d offer some insight into what your choice of wedding ring says about your relationship. We should highlight that there is absolutely no science to this, and some of it is entirely superstition!

Whether you choose matching rings, or different styles, your wedding rings symbolise the commitment you make to each other in your vows.

Yellow Gold

Simple gold wedding bands remain a common wedding ring choice. Many couples like their simplicity because it isn’t garish or overly expensive. If you opt for this kind of ring, it may suggest that you’re strong and have simple ideas about how your relationship should work.You’re probably very traditional, too, which isn’t a bad thing at all!

Diamond solitaire

Solitaire diamonds are popular choices for engagement rings, but that doesn’t mean you can’t opt for the same kind of pizzazz on your wedding band. It’ll very much be down to personal style, but such a band will signify simplicity, elegance and a relationship that is solid, without any form of fuss or bother.

Green: you’re earthy
Red: you’re active and vibrant
Dark blue: you’re wise and intuitive
Pink: you’re very romantic
Turquoise: you’re creative and talkative
