Wedding Band Tips from My Jewelry Box

Selecting a wedding band is one of the most important decisions you will make as you take the first steps into wedded bliss. Future brides and grooms spend hours selecting the perfect choice to reflect their love and commitment in this traditional form of jewelry, while expressing their personality and lifestyle in their final choice. After all... this is a special piece of jewelry you will wear for a lifetime, so it has to be just perfect!

Celebrity Diamond Guy and CEO of, David Mamane, keeps A-listers in-the-know, and now thanks to the following tips you can be too when it comes to selecting the right wedding bands. For added shopping knowledge, his website offers an extensive collection of wedding rings for any taste and budget, as well as an informative page on Education for Your Jewelry Purchase Experience.  

Some Tips from David Mamane of My Jewelry Box:

1. Choose a band that matches the material of your engagement ring, if her engagement ring is platinum; purchase her a platinum wedding band. Re-visiting the same store that the engagement ring was purchased from is always a good idea. The three most popular wedding bands are yellow gold, white gold and platinum. White gold is popular because it coordinates with both silver and gold and is less expensive than platinum. Yellow gold is traditional, but be sure to look into the karats. Nine karat does not look as nice and will not hold up as well as 18 karat, but more karats means a bigger price tag.

2. Shop together; this ensures that everyone gets what they want

3. Choose a style that compliments your fingers and hand. If you have a larger finger, a thick band will look more attractive than a thin band, while skinny fingers tend to look better with a small, simple, band.

4. Take into consideration what you do for a living; if you work in construction, you want a wedding band that will withstand how much abuse it will take.

Below are some beautiful wedding design images from My Jewelry Box for our readers to review right here on The Event Lady's Blog:

Florida Weddings and Special Events Weblog
The Event Lady's blog posts are focused on the wedding, sweet sixteen and quince/sweet fifteen
celebrations of Florida, we love to hear about many other social events happening in our own Florida communities.

A quince celebration is very much like a wedding reception; it is a traditional coming of age celebration in a young woman's life within the Hispanic culture.
The Event Lady is an expert in both weddings and quinceañera events, and feeling proud of her Cuban heritage; enjoys this very special niche of the special event industry. Quinces parties have very similar planning needs to a wedding event.

We invite Florida brides and quinceañeras of all nationalities to comment on our blogs, each one has a small cooment link on the bottom of each post. 

We also invite wedding photographers to tell us about their great events; submit event images with your website credit on them of course on the lower right hand corner
