More than any other jewel, the covenant is the very symbol of eternal passion and the promise of a life together. Classic or original, smooth or brushed, it can be difficult for each groom to find the illustrious ring. Uses its expertise in jewelry to deliver you 10 precious advices and to accompany you in this moving step which is the choice of your alliances!
- Think about duration and quality: favor forged alliances especially for you
The wedding rings are the eternal bond of your love, so they should be designed to last! Do not compromise on quality! Instead of opting for a ring already in stock, have your ring forged specifically for you at your finger size.
Why? Because the mastery of the fabrication technique of the forged makes it possible to increase the density and the resistance of the alliances. Foundry, finishing, shaping, from design to design, each piece of jewelry is the object of particular care and reflects traditional craftsmanship. A guarantee of undeniable quality!
- Order your wedding rings on time
The custom-made manufacture of a forged alliance takes about 3 to 5 weeks.
We recommend that you choose them no later than one month before your wedding. Of course you can buy them upstream so you do not get overwhelmed by all the preparations at the same time! 3 or 4 months before your wedding is a reasonable time.
Think about how you will keep your wedding rings before your wedding: entrusted to your witnesses, to your relatives, or to your home? Protect them carefully!
- Choose the fitting in the shop
The shop is a place thought to help you find the perfect jewel, enjoy personalized advice and try your favorites. Nothing like trying to be certain to find the alliances that are like you … The intimate and warm setting will make fitting a unique moment between future spouses!
- Bring your engagement ring for your wedding ring fitting
If you do not have to match alliance and engagement ring (the juxtaposition of two colors of gold can be very successful), the main thing is to find a beautiful harmony between these two rings of love and to be made pleasure! Whether you choose to wear them on the same hand or not, it’s best to try them together to realize the effect and find the best combination possible.
- Think about your style as well as your lifestyle in choosing your model
With or without a diamond? Assorted between the spouses? White, yellow, pink or platinum gold? The most important thing is to listen to your heart and choose an alliance that suits you and fits you perfectly. We only get married once after all and it’s a ring that you will wear all your life! And remember, the “good” width is often tied to a good proportion between the size of your hands and the width of your wedding ring . For the strongest or longest hands prefer a rather broad alliance, for the hands thinnest or short prefer a rather fine alliance.
But above all, keep looking long term and think about your lifestyle! You work with your hands? Outdoors? Favor an all-gold wedding ring, of medium width rather than a ring too fine or set with diamonds.
- Take into account the weather when you take your finger size
Good to know: the heat makes your fingers swell and you can have up to three sizes of difference between winter and summer! Think about it the moment you try your wedding rings!
The right size does not hold your finger but passes with difficulty the joint of the phalanx.
- Are you hesitating on a golden color? Take into account your skin tone and your tanning habits
Yellow gold is the color that offers the most beautiful contrast with the dullest skins , while the pink gold is very clear on the fair skins . White gold (or platinum) is the most versatile color, it adapts well to all skin types.
Think about it if you try your tanned alliances when you come back from vacation! Try to imagine rendering your skin lighter the rest of the year to be sure to make the right choice.
- Prefer white palladium gold to rhodium white gold
Prefer palladium white gold for a color that stays in time!
Gold is naturally yellow. Rhodium white gold owes its white color to a surface treatment, rhodium-based, which fades over time and must be renewed every year to regain its luster.
Palladium white gold, on the other hand, is naturally white because of its alloy. Nicknamed “intense white gold”, its color does not change over time!
- Think about customizing your alliance
Beyond the choice of the model, its width and its golden color, you can further customize your alliance by the choice of its finish and its engraving. OR OF THE WORLD wedding rings can benefit from different finishes, either polished or brushed. A polished alliance offers a brilliant appearance while the brushed affect the ring.
The engraving is symbolic and makes unique the alliances. Take the time to think about it: it is possible to engrave the respective names as well as the date of marriage or a sweet personalized message. Given free rein to your imagination!
- Choose an existing resource by choosing a recycled gold alliance!
Absolute symbols of eternal love and commitment, marriage alliances must not be tainted by the irresponsible practices of the gold industry.
In fact, the extraction of gold requires the use of large quantities of water , mercury , cyanide and generates enormous volumes of mining waste … Now, there is enough gold already extracted on the surface of the planet. To meet the needs of the jewelry industry for the next 50 years.
GOLD OF THE WORLD is the first GREEN JEWELRY to certify the ethical origin of its diamonds and to recycle the gold of its creations for an environmental impact 0!
