Wedding rings are special. They are a symbolic bond between two people, and they represent many different promises. The rings chosen will likely be worn for the remainder of that persons life, so choosing a good pair of wedding rings is vital.

Style
Wedding rings, like engagement rings, come in a variety of styles and designs. The styles depend largely on the couple. Solitary rings are one such example. Solitary rings are solid bands, and have no jewels or decorations. Other rings, however, have jewels. The jewels may be inlaid or raised, and may be come in one large size or many smaller ones. Metal type varies also. Silver and gold are the most common types of metals used in bands. Other types may include a mixture of metals or bronze. Alternative rings may be composed of steel and shaped into odd designs.

Inscriptions
An inscription is usually the most meaningful thing that can be placed on a ring. Engraved on the inside of the ring, it is a personal message to the other person that only that person can see. The phrase must be small, and may consist of merely a word or two that only the other person can understand.

Budget
Not everyone can afford to spend a great deal on money on good rings. Other couples don't want to spend a lot, and instead save the money for more important things, such as bills. If this is the case, there are many budget options available.

Silver bands are usually the first step in a cheaper direction. Considerably cheaper than gold, silver rings are still high quality and look just as beautiful as a gold ring.

Stainless steal is another option. A good stainless steal ring will look very similar to silver. The metal itself is of good quality, and will not bend or rust. It can be engraved like any other ring, and is a good option. Platinum is also a good metal, and is becoming quite common as a wedding ring.

Cubic Zirconium is a good substitute for diamonds. It is relatively cheap and nearly indistinguishable from a real diamond. Cubic zirconium is a very hard substance that is rare in nature. It has a high melting point, and is very durable. The only visual difference between cubic zirconium and a real diamond is the amount of light dispersion it has; a wider array of rainbow colors can be seen when reflected in light.
