1. The budget is key
Before facing any game of the wedding, it is convenient to
be realistic. Especially in the His
and her rings sets, the first expense of the celebration. It is
necessary to make an estimate of how much the wedding can cost, even if it is
above, before buying a ring that will be the beginning of everything. Then come
the most serious expenses and you have to be consistent.
Ask about the average price of the rings and think about how
much you can allocate to this game . Because the stone is the element that best
determines the price of a piece of this caliber. Do not throw the house out the
window buying the ring with the strongest and most valuable stone in the
market, if you can pay it at the beginning. You do not have to pretend or show
anything to anyone, your partner or the rest of the people. Love can do
everything and the important thing will always be the detail and what that
gesture represents, not its value. If you have the money, go ahead, but try not
to waste taking into account all that remains to be covered.
2. Do not forget the
Personality is one of the most important concepts of a
wedding. We have always proclaimed the importance of having a unique style and
demonstrating it in such an extremely important moment. So, just as we ask
brides to avoid disguises on their big day, in order to show themselves as they
really are, with the ring the exact same thing happens.
If you are going to be married in marriage with the right
person, surely you know their tastes and the small details that make their
world special, those little things that make it completely irresistible. Why
forget all this in your wedding ring? Do not buy an engagement ring with a
stone too simple or ostentatious if the person who is going to take it does not
agree with that style. Look for simplicity if your partner does not feel
special predilection for jewelry; Take the rest if you have the means to get an
impressive stone if it is really important to her.
3. Determine the
Although the beauty of the stone is really significant when
choosing the winner, the resistance is not less. In fact, it could be even more
important if you want it to remain intact throughout life, or that there is
very little risk of it spoiling over the years. The scratches and dirt can tear
it down forever, so you should not neglect this aspect, whenever possible. For
this, it is necessary to know a little more about this complex world of
precious stones and minerals, starting with the way to measure the resistance
and all that the results can offer.
The resistance of a material of these characteristics is
measured through the Mohs scale. In particular, in this scale the relative
hardness of a stone or resistance to scratching of various minerals is
observed. It works from one to ten, having as references the talc, which is the
weakest mineral, and the diamond, which holds the prize for the strongest of
all. Taking this into account, the stones chosen are usually the diamond, the
sapphire and the ruby, beautiful at the same time resistant, with a ten of
hardness in the first case and a nine in the other two.
At the podium of privileged stones they are followed by
others of great hardness, but somewhat lower than the previous ones. The
emerald is eight on the scale; the aquamarine , precious gem, varies between
seven and a half and eight points of hardness; the amethyst stays in the seven;
the garnet between six and a half and seven and a half; and, among the chosen
ones, the last one would be the opal , with a resistance of six.
4. Take into account
Although not all couples look for the meanings of the elements
or the styles they handle at their wedding, for many couples it is really
important to place a symbolism and try to make the celebration revolve around
it. Whether by tradition, by superstitions or as anecdote, the precious stone
of the ring, which will always adorn the finger of the bride, is closely linked
to the meanings given according to traditions or thoughts.
Within the vast field of meanings, diamond, the maximum
luxury that can only be scratched with other diamonds, represents perfection, will,
triumph, firmness and rectitude, as well as raising physical energy. The
sapphire, shown as a blue and enigmatic source of purity, has the title of
“stone of success, truth and wisdom " and, unlike the diamond, elevates
consciousness. On the other hand, the ruby , red and powerful in presence, is
the stone of trust and intelligence , and symbolizes offspring, brings luck in
love, drives away sadness and represses lust; a jewel, never better said. And
the emerald, green and
Leader of hope, represents abundance, provides balance and
patience; In addition to its effects on health, it purifies the spirit and
removes the negative forces.
But there is much more, because not all brides can afford a
stone of these characteristics or simply want to try other possibilities and be
more original. In this sense, come into play semiprecious stones, true wonders
that break the deck with an abundant dose of beauty and meaning. The turquoise
, for example, means friendship , and is said to also attracts money, success and
love; the amethyst is considered the stone of the spirit, represents the
protection and attracts positive energy. Which one do you prefer?
5. Jewelry Council
Our advice at this stage of the wedding is the same as
always: be yourself. Do not let yourself be carried away only by the opinions
of friends, family or experts; use them to get an idea and inform you, but
nothing more. If you are the couple that will be responsible for choosing the
precious stone, try to obey the tastes and desires of your partner; do not
force him to be a person that is not really. Be true to her and your
relationship, and do not feel pressured by the value of the ring, since the
important thing is the detail and everything it means.
If you are the bride, more of the same: do not stop being
yourself. Do not pretend to pretend with the stone that adorns your finger. Try
to give clues or choose the one that represents you, since you will carry it
from here on throughout your life. Do you really want an artificial ring? You
must say a lot about yourself, be it ostentatious or simple.
