Marriage ceremonies have been in existence for thousands of years, with the first recorded evidence of one as far back as 2350 BC in Mesopotamia. Since then, we’ve embraced various wedding and marriage traditions in different cultures and countries.
While you may want to follow as many traditions and rules as possible, there’s also no harm in forging your own path and straying away from some of the more common ones relating to the engagement rings you buy. Here are some of the many engagement ring rules you may wish to break.
The idea that you have to spend two months of your wages on a diamond engagement ring has been thrown around for decades. For some people, that can amount to several thousand dollars, and possibly far more than you want to spend when you have a wedding to save for.
This rule is one of the best ones to break. Spend as much as you want, but consider discussing budgets with your loved ones. It’s also important to know that rings are a symbol of love rather than wealth.
When the time comes to purchase a diamond wedding ring or engagement ring, consider shopping online. This way, you can see which options are within your budget and shop without the pressure of salespeople trying to make you buy something you can’t afford.
There’s no denying that traditional engagement rings are beautiful, but so are most diamond engagement rings. Choose something you love, not something you believe you’re supposed to choose because it’s more ‘traditional’.
You can even create a custom ring that suits your every want and desire. Reputable diamond and diamond jewellery provider Diamonds.co.nz lets you choose a diamond colour, diamond cut, and diamond setting so that it can be an entirely personal purchase.
Once upon a time, only men could purchase a diamond engagement ring, get down on one knee, and ask for a woman’s hand in marriage. Those days are over, and those age-old traditions no longer have to apply.
Women can ask for a man or woman’s hand in marriage and purchase the rings on her own. Heterosexual and same-sex couples can also buy rings together to make it a magical experience they both can enjoy.
Most people never want to remove their engagement ring, but you can. In fact, it’s preferred if you do to protect its structural integrity during activities involving sweat, water, chemicals, mess, lotions, and other possibly harmful liquids.
It’s romantic to propose with a ring, but it’s not always necessary. You can propose without one then talk with your partner about their preferences before purchasing one. That way, you can both be happy with the design and quality of the ring, as well as how much you spend on it.
All the movies show people sneaking into jewellery stores to purchase the perfect engagement ring. As romantic as this is, there are other ways to buy the ring of your dreams.
You can now shop online and enjoy delivery to your door for convenience, affordability, and time savings. You can even custom-design a ring online. There are so many options now that shopping in-store is just one of many things to consider when you start hunting for a new ring.
Traditions are wonderful, and they certainly have their place. However, they are not hard and fast rules you have to follow when you start engagement ring shopping.
Both men and women can purchase gorgeous diamond engagement rings, and you can spend as much or as little as you like. You can also design a ring to suit your preferences rather than purchasing one off the shelf that doesn’t necessarily represent who you are. Forge your own path and shop for a unique ring you adore from www.diamonds.co.nz.
