So, many things have changed ever since the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus pandemic. Right now, most of the world is at a standstill. Most businesses have had to be closed and only the essential ones, like food and healthcare, are allowed to stay open.
If you are planning for a wedding at this time, it can get really stressful. You can’t go to your potential venues or personally meet with your vendors.
If you are trying to find a ring for your husband during this pandemic, don’t panic. Here are some tips you can follow so as to make it less stressful for you.
- Set your budget – With many people losing their jobs or closing their business, you may have had to cut some of the budgets at your wedding. So before you start canvassing for potential rings, you need to know exactly how much money you are willing to spend on the rings. Take a look at your wedding and decide which are the non-negotiables for you. Maybe you are opting for a simple wedding now that people are not allowed to gather in many numbers. If that is the case, then you may have a little more budget to spare.
- Narrow down your choices – Once you have your wedding budget in mind, you can start looking. Because stores are closed right now, your best bet would be to go to their websites to check what rings they have to offer. Decide on what you want your rings to look like. Ideally, your rings should complement each other. There are stores that offer a set so you can check them out and see if that is feasible for you. Broaden your minds and check out different styles, colors, and stones. If you had a particular design in mind, don’t just stick to that one. Try to see others too so that you can make a good decision on which ones will best fit your needs.
- Remember your husband’s lifestyle – This is something that needs to be considered. Most people never take off their wedding rings unless absolutely necessary. So think about your husband’s lifestyle. What is their job? Consider whether the design of the ring you have chosen will in any way be affected. For example, if their jobs require them to use their hands all the time, consider getting a ring that does not have precious stones in it. They may become loose and come off. If they have an active lifestyle, find a material that is durable so that the ring can withstand anything.
- Choose something that is timeless – Nobody gets married thinking that it will end after a few years. After all, the vows say ‘til death do us part. So, with that in mind, you might want to go with a style that is timeless. Now, there is nothing wrong with keeping up with the trends, but you might want to consider something that will still look elegant and beautiful even after, let’s say 40 years? While diamonds are always timeless, it may be an extravagant expense at these uncertain times. Why don’t you consider alpine rings instead? They are simple and very classical looking and would look great on anybody.
- Make sure to have the right size – Now this is important and you better make sure that you will order the right size. You don’t want to feel very inconvenienced during a pandemic. Imagine that it might take longer than usual to order your rings as many industries are still not operational at this time. If you order the wrong size, you will have to return it and then wait for it to be delivered again to you. To make sure you are getting the right size, have both of your ring fingers measured. Also, measure during the right time. If you measure when you just woke up or you’ve just exercised, chances are your fingers are slightly bigger than normal. When it is too cold, there are chances that your fingers will have shrunk and therefore give you a smaller size than your usual.
It may be challenging at this time to plan for a very important event in your life. Your rings are a big part of the wedding as they are a symbol of your love for each other. So take your time in choosing your husband’s ring as they are something that he will be keeping with him forever.
