Although you will undoubtedly find you can buy this type of ring in a mall jewelers; they may not have the range or the quality of a specialist. Using a specialist should also make it easier when you are trying to find a ring that works well with the engagement ring so the two do not conflict.
Couples should not purchase wedding rings that overpower the engagement ring as these rings are meant to be understated; some jewelers are able to provide rings that were designed to match. The best way to do this is by trial and error, having the wedding band placed alongside the engagement ring.
Fashions in rings come and go but the traditional metals including: (1) Titanium, (2) Yellow Gold, (3) White Gold and (4) Silver; although, increasing numbers of couples are choosing the longer lasting platinum. For men, durability is a contributing factor and why platinum is so effective. The number of men carrying out manual tasks is still greater than women; they are still the ones most likely to cause damage to their ring.
To ensure both wedding rings fit on the wedding day, it will be necessary to have both of them re-sized correctly; you really don't want the rings to fit poorly after all the planning that has taken place. Neither ring should be so tight that they require lubrication to put them on or take them off; just as in the same way they can be so loose they can be easily lost.
It is not uncommon for couples to leave having the rings adjusted until close to the wedding day; this can cause the jeweler problems because he may have others to adjust for the same day, so allow plenty of time for this. Choosing wedding bands you will both like and that match the engagement ring may take some time; allow for this as it is not uncommon for couples to choose in haste and then regret their decision later.
There isn't a stronger symbol of two people's love than the wedding ring; there isn't a stronger symbol of the love two people share.

Nautical Fashion Trend: Think Stipes
Stripes are very often feared and sometimes a bit tricky to pull off. So it makes sense that most fashion experts generally tell their clients to 'stay away'! While stripes can look tacky, outdated and can even make a woman look larger, when done properly, stripes can look absolutely fantastic.Horizontal stripes can be a bit tricky, so for wider gals, go for a vertical stripe. I'm loving the classic navy blue and crisp white stripes and even the super bold red ones! If choosing to wear horizontal stripes, go for a narrow to medium thickness stripe. Too thick of stripes will not only make you look thicker, but super out-dated. Lastly, don't go stripes crazy. If there are stripes on your shirt, do not do a striped pant, jacket and shoes!

Anchors and Sailor PantsFor nautical outfits this season, you will see anchors and sailor pants everywhere. Sailor pants are universally flattering and completely elongate the legs! The little buttons are adorable with being too costume-y. (Assuming one doesn't add on too many 'theme' accessories) Anchors will also be prevalent this summer. They're a cute but glamorous touch to add onto any nautical outfit. Just be sure not to overload on the cutesy patterns as that will over-do the look.
