Getting engaged and married is such an important and special time in your life. The engagement and wedding rings that you wear will (hopefully) be worn for life so you want to choose something really special that you love. Here are 14 of the most beautiful engagement rings for women which should hopefully inspire you on your search for the perfect rings.
What are Engagement Rings?
Engagement rings are traditionally given to a woman by a man who is proposing to marry her. Traditionally they are made from gold and diamond although there are many different designs today. The woman will wear the ring on the ring finger of her left hand until they are married as a sign that she is promised to marry. While the engagement ring isn't worn for the wedding ceremony, it is often worn afterwards, together with the wedding ring.
What are Wedding Rings?
A wedding ring is a band of solid precious metal that is worn on the ring finger of the left hand to indicate that the wearer is married. It is a tradition that goes back as far as Roman times but has a Christian origin. Today men will often wear a wedding ring as well as women, although this was not always the case.
Choosing an engagement and wedding ring
Traditionally a man would choose the engagement ring for his intended, but today most women are involved in the choice. There are so many beautiful engagement and wedding rings to choose from, to suit all budgets so I thought I would highlight a few of my favourite designs from the fabulous website SheSaidYes.
You can't go wrong with a classic looking engagement ring. If diamond is out of your budget try looking at moissanite rings - they have the same look as diamond but are much cheaper. You can choose from many different styles and cut of the gemstone in a wide range of precious metals, either silver, gold, rose gold or platinum depending upon what look you are going for.
You might be looking for something a little more unique - if your intended likes to stand out and be different then one of these designs might work better...
Once your loved one has said yes you can go about choosing the wedding ring. You will want something that complements the engagement ring so if you went for a classic engagement ring, classic wedding rings would probably be the way to go. A classic wedding band is traditional and timeless and can be made of any precious metal and include different gemstones if you wish.
It also might be worth taking a look at moissanite bridal sets. These are a great option as you can choose an engagement ring and wedding ring that are made to go together and have the same style. It's a great choice if you are unsure of what rings complement each other. You can get some really stunning combinations and because they are made to be a set, they look that little bit extra special.
I hope that you found this post useful if you are looking for beautiful engagement and wedding rings - as you can see there are so many beautiful choices out there, it is just difficult to choose one!!
