how to choose a wedding ring | by the skinny confidential 6how-to-choose-a-wedding-ring-gt

You could say I’m late on picking a wedding band but what the hell else is new?

To be honest I left the whole ring thing to the last-minute. Before leaving for Cabo, I ended up buying a “wedding band” at a drugstore as a place holder, & rocked it for 2 months! I figured it was time to put some effort into my wedding ring…

Thankfully, Jared the Galleria of Jewelry invited me to tour their store so I was able to get really hands on with the whole thing…and let’s face it, you guys know I love to get hands on.

After playing around and styling their wedding bands, I compiled three easy tips for the non-traditional bride, super simple & to the point.

Vibe is muy importante. Do you hear? Everyone is different. Your wedding band should reflect your style. For me, I feel like my engagement ring is VERY me so I don’t want to overwhelm it with too much for the wedding band.

In fact, I thought on very simple terms when picking the wedding band. Jared the Galleria of Jewelry had a million options, most of them being simple & very tasteful. I especially like the plain diamond band. CHIC.


WHO CARES ABOUT MATCHING? I’m not a matchy-matchy person. Like the whole “all gold everything” is out. Mix it up.

If your husband has a gold ring, you can totally do a platinum moment. Mix a braided band with a simple diamond band. Get crazy. AGAIN, do you. Let the ring reflect your style & throw the “rules” out the window. Because who even created the rules? Let’s make our own rules.


As always I’m about what looks good…ON YOU. EVERYONE is different. Don’t go for the trends, go for what looks good on you. When picking my engagement ring & wedding bands I actually paid a lot of attention to the shape of my finger.

I am a fan of going for shapes that flatter the finger. Personally I want my finger & hand to look longer so yes, I definitely pay attention to shapes of the stones/ring.

The reason I like Jared the Galleria of Jewelry is because HELLO OPTIONS. They have variety: the vibe, the non-matchy matchy, & rings that flatter each individual’s finger. They just get it.

Anyway, Michael has 5 different rings for different occasions…so you could always go that route too. I feel like he needs guidance. If you’re married HELP PLEASE. He’s out of control really. Almost like Bridezilla but he’s married with 3249823 rings. It’s like he’s Sméagol ( Gollum ) from Lord of the Rings.

OK off to enjoy the rest of our weekend. We are having the most relaxing day reading, EATING ( gluten-free brownie cookies anyone? ), & spooning the dogs. Hope you’re all having a relaxing weekend.

    1. It was a joint effort! I knew the kind of shape I wanted but he surprised me with this gorgeous ring! xx

  1. We got our rings from local jewelers in my husband’s hometown. I wanted something that no one else had & wanted to support local artists. I am so happy with the outcome, the rings are breathtaking!

  2. What a stunning engagement ring! I’ve always preferred a simple but beautiful band, my husband chose something very similar for me from Diamond Heaven and I was thrilled haha.

  3. What a great idea for a wedding band it will be very easy to choose a band as I will definitely be considering one like this. Is there any videos of these bands performing. 10 weeks till my wedding and not 1 band organised yet the nerves are killing me.

  4. Thankful to you for sharing this great posting about the wedding ring. I love your style and ideas you seem so gorgeous. It’s very helpful for all readers.

  5. Amazing! that ring looks so pretty. This is simplicity at the best. I love the idea of being simple yet attractive. Just want to ask did you research about the shape and design before purchasing it or you choose it from the jeweler collection?
