Buying platinum wedding rings takes thought and consideration. It's all very well thinking it's just a metal band, but remember you'll be wearing your wedding rings for the rest of your life – for some people who stay together for most of their adult life, that could be up to 60 or so years!
Choosing the right wedding rings then is crucial: your wedding rings need to be durable, timeless and comfortable. It's easy to get carried away with trends or fashions, but ask yourself if you'll still feel the same about your wedding rings in ten or twenty years time before you make an investment.
Wedding rings – Not just Gold GlittersEngagement and wedding rings come in a variety of precious models – dazzling silver, lustrous gold or durable, modern platinum. Choosing the right metal is important. There are a number of factors to take on board including:
- Allergies: some people are allergic to precious metals, especially gold. You don't want to exchange wedding rings then find out weeks later that you can't physically wear the ring.
- The economy: it sounds shallow, yes you can't buy love but money counts, especially when the economy is in trouble. Make sure you check the cost of gold and platinum which can rise and fall drastically depending on the economic conditions and inflation.
- Endurance: it's a given that metals such as gold and platinum will be durable, choosing a simple wedding ring will give it aesthetic appeal ensuring the classic simple style will ride through changing fashions.
