The wedding ring, a symbol that spans the ages
There wedding ring has a strong symbol, that of eternal love, which resists beyond time. It is for this reason that the ring has a circular shape without discontinuity. Before and during the wedding, two types of rings will be useful to you, the one that will mark your request, the engagement ring or the solitaire, and those that will be exchanged to seal your union, the wedding ring.
WHICH ENGAGEMENT RING TO OFFER?
It was in Roman times that the solitaire ring finds its origin. It was for men to offer a gift to their loved one as a promise of marriage and to signify that their heart belonged to them. It is for this reason that this ring is worn on the ring finger. Indeed, an ancient belief considered that a vein connected this finger to the heart. First designed as a simple ring , the engagement ring was transformed into a solitaire in the 1500s. Precious stones such as diamonds, sapphires, rubies or emeralds adorned the setting to reflect the depth of admiration that the man had for his beauty.
Around the 16th century, the solitaire changed into a solitaire accompanied by several stones, but it should be noted that the word solitaire does not refer to the number of stones that dress the ring, but rather to the shape of the size of the gem. Today, the trilogy enters the trend and many engaged couples turn to this model to ask for the hand of their beloved. Depending on your budget, the precious metal you like and the model that will sublimate your fiancée, Bäumer Vendôme offers you a collection of engagement rings , wedding rings and jewelry to offer as gifts respecting the codes of luxury, but which remain accessible to all budgets. From models equipped with fine stones to solitaires adorned with precious stones, you will find what you are looking for. Depending on your aspirations, you can choose between bezel setting, rail setting, bar setting, grain setting or claw setting.
HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR WEDDING RING?
Once the moment of the engagement has passed, you have arrived at the stage where you will have to choose your covenant ? To mark this exceptional day when you are going to make a lifelong commitment, here are some criteria that will help you find the ring that will best tell your story, and which will be able to remind you of the ardor of your flame when the day comes. The ring is generally a simple jewel devoid of artifice. The choice of metal is thus an important point in giving it all its symbolic beauty. You have the choice between the yellow gold wedding band, the white gold wedding band or the pink gold wedding band according to your tastes. Other materials exist, but these precious metals are the most common in addition to platinum. Thanks to the evolution of the trend, it is now even possible to choose a model of intertwined rings in a combination of yellow gold and white gold, for example.
For the choice of gold, you can opt for 18 carat or 750 thousandths gold, 9 carats or 375 thousandths gold or other alloys adapted to your budget. You should know that the number of thousandths represents the quantity of gold that makes up each alloy on a basis of 1000 thousandths. A guarantee stamp allows you to ensure the quality of the material used for your wedding ring or PACS. It is an eagle's head for 18 carat gold and a cloverleaf for 9 carat gold. In addition to the material, care must be taken to measure the size of the ring for both men and women. This measurement will define the grammage and the price of the alliance. As for the design, the models have evolved and you can afford more fantasy. Some jewels are entirely set with stones, which gives them a soft splendor imbued with elegance. For more originality, you can even engrave the jewel by affixing your first names, a date or a symbolic text of your relationship.
HOW TO CARE FOR A WEDDING RING?
A certificate of authenticity generally accompanies each jewel. For your ring of marriage, this document makes it possible to guarantee the quality precious metal used as well as stones if you have chosen to dress your alliance with precious stones. A good knowledge of the different elements that make up the jewel allows you to better maintain it. For cleaning, you can use a product specially dedicated to the chosen metal or stones or resort to a grandmother's trick which consists in preparing a mixture of natural soap and lukewarm water to wash your ring. Attention, if the diamond is a resistant stone, the emerald is less so. It will thus be necessary to avoid attacking the stone, but to adopt a gentle movement for cleaning.
The ideal is to take all the precautions recommended by the jeweler to avoid wear and tear on your wedding ring or engagement ring. If necessary, seek professional help. It is also not necessary to clean the ring at too regular a pace, take care of it and only carry out a deep cleaning at distant intervals, why not on the date anniversary of your wedding? You could set up this little ritual together to strengthen your bond.
