Every item that is a central part of your wedding ceremony tells people something about you. Your dress indicates your sense of style and how closely you adhere to traditional values, for example.
The colour scheme for your weeding can even say something about how cheerful you are. But what about the wedding ring? What is that key piece of the wedding telling people about you?
Knowing what a ring says to others about you is important if you want to convey a specific message with it or if you want people to react to the ring in a certain way.
The bride’s wedding ring isn’t just for her, because she will probably want to show it off to her friends. You do that because you care about their reactions, so it makes sense to find out what it says about you.
A Big Ring
If you choose a ring that is impressively big, you are probably trying to impress people. You might be showing off your wealth or trying to make your marriage a prominent part of your relationships. You want people to know that you are married, and your ring says that for you, and a bigger rings saying it more loudly.
A large ring can be a source of pride, and it will indicate to others that you are proud of the marriage or the ring itself. If you are someone who is quiet and keeps to themself, someone who would consider herself to be private, then a big ring probably isn’t for you.
An Expensive Stone
If you have an obviously expensive ring, then that says something too. It is a showy object, and it probably sparkles nicely and looks pricey. This is often a way to showcase your wealth or your groom’s dedication to you. Once again, this isn’t the kind of ring a private person would normally pick, because a very expensive ring speaks volumes.
In some cases, the costly ring could be an heirloom or could be something that the groom saved up a lot of money over time to buy. If that is true in your case, then the ring likely has deep sentimental value. It gives you a way to tell people your story, because every time they ask about it or compliment you on it, you can tell them how you came to have it.
This unusual look for a wedding ring is going to tell people that you have your own sense of style. You don’t always go with the flow and you like to do your own thing when possible. It paints you as a bit of a rebel or an outside the box thinker, and this kind of rung will really stand out for its unique appearance.
Most wedding rings are gold or silver, but if you combine gold and silver or you add in some colorful blue or red hues with the stones you chose, then your ring will be a lot more special.
This kind of wedding ring will really wow, as it offers splendid floral patterns and intricate details. Some of the floral rings we have seen are especially ornate, looking like decorative roses with a colorful centerpiece.
Others are simpler and just have a few minor flourishes to give the ring a somewhat floral appearance. This is a style that is uncommon, though, so if you want your ring to look different from the norm, this may be the way to go for you. It just might not be practical for everyday wear.
Keeping things really simple with the shape, design and look of the ring has its advantages. It says that you are practical and that you don’t need anything complicated or gaudy to be happy. You are not about the big show and the fashionable trends, but you value useful, functional items in your life.
With a simple band and a stone that does not snag on your clothes, you are thinking ahead by wearing a ring that you can keep on your hand when you shower, work out, or play sports.
This could also be a look that says that you are a tomboy. You have an outdoorsy side to you and like to get dirty, and you don’t want a ring to get in the way of that.
It can also be a bucking of tradition when you want a ring that is stripped back and as simple as can be. You aren’t interested in the showiness of a traditional wedding ring and have no intention of showing the ring off to every one of your friends.
You like the traditional, classic look and prefer to wear your wedding ring as a formal statement. The rectangular or square ring isn’t as strictly traditional as the rounded wedding ring, but it is close. This shape says you enjoy a slight twist on the classics but don’t want to buck the trends too much.
Even the conservative traditionalists in your family should not have a problem with this one.
The head holds the stone in place, and it used to be very common for the head to be ornate and intricate. That is not quite as common these days, but going with a ring that has those complex details in the head speaks to a love of vintage style.
It’s not so much a traditional style as much as it is simply an older one, and you can showcase your love of all things retro with this look.
What is your wedding ring saying to others about your personality, tastes, and lifestyle? Think carefully before you make your choice.
