Wedding bands symbolize the love and commitment a couple has for each other. Often, they are engraved with a special love-filled message for the couple. Sometimes wedding bands have the eternity symbol to denote the commitment the couple has for one another.
Wedding bands, as the name denotes are simpler rings. They rarely have stones - or if they do, they are channel set. One wants wedding bands that are durable, long lasting and beautiful as they are hopefully worn for the rest of ones life.

How Does One Wear a Wedding Band
Often people wonder how to wear a wedding band while also wearing their engagement ring. Usually the wedding band is placed on the outside, that is towards the nail. There are several reasons for this. The wedding band keeps the first commitment ring closer to your heart. Also, a wedding band generally does not have a raised stone, so it will be able to keep the ring with the more expensive stone from getting lost. Finally, as it usually doesn't have a raised stone, it won't get caught on things as much.

You or your jeweler can measure your ring size if needed. If you use a ring sizer, measure your size when your hands are warm at the end of the day to obtain an accurate size. When determining ring size, the sizer should nicely slide over your knuckle. Enjoy using our Free Ring Sizer if needed.
