Making Amends: The Experience of Choosing a Wedding Ring

For a first-time bride, organizing for my special day was overwhelming, to say the least. There was too much to do and very little time to do it yet everything had to be done just right.

Luckily for me, I had a whole team to take care of much of the preparations but some things such as finding the perfect wedding ring could not be delegated to anyone else but me.

So, I took the bold task of choosing a wedding ring that wouldn’t only appeal to my taste but to my significant other’s too.

I had always been told that the exchange of wedding rings is one of the most important parts of the wedding. It signifies the end of the courtship and the beginning of a new journey in marriage.

The wedding ring is a gift exchanged by the couple before they officially become wife and husband. It’s a symbol of love and commitment so I had to make sure that I make the absolute perfect choice when selecting the wedding ring.

Narrowing Down My Options

There are numerous types and outlets dealing in wedding rings out there, trust me. From local jewelers to online jewelry stores, you would be hard-pressed to know where to start your shopping.

I began my search by finding a truly reliable online jeweler with a reputation for selling high-quality wedding rings. Best Brilliance was a perfect option to start with.

I had been recommended to Best Brilliance wedding rings by a colleague at work, with a caveat to expect the most comprehensive collection of wedding rings in different price points.

True to her word, I was bowled over by the sheer range of exquisite diamond rings available at Best Brilliance. My only problem was finding the right ring at the right price. I don’t know how other people do it but I created my own way of narrowing down my choices to the perfect option.

Finding the Perfect Size

The last thing I wanted was to end up with a pricey wedding ring that was either too tight for comfort or too large to fall off and possibly get lost forever.

Fortunately, Best Brilliance gives their customers a Universal Measure Finger Size kit free of charge. The free ring sizer comes in a beautiful package and can measure finger sizes from US size 3 to US size 14.

Finding the Right Style

This was perhaps the most challenging part of the journey. Best Brilliance had almost every imaginable wedding ring style in my opinion, from endless diamond sets to ring shapes.

To make a long story short, I finally narrowed down my choices to the following rings:

  • Stephanie Wedding band which is a 0.3-carat diamond classic wedding band with 14K white gold.
  • Jessica Wedding Band, which is a budget 14K white gold solitaire band
  • The Trinity Wedding Band, a 2.4-carat diamond eternity band with 14K gold
  • The Annabelle Wedding band – a 0.5-carat diamond wedding band
  • The Amelia Wedding Band, another 0.5-carat diamond band with 14K white gold and unique setting
  • The June Wedding Band, which is a 1-carat thick diamond band with 14K white gold and channel setting
  • The Giselle Wedding Band, a budget-priced 0.18-carat diamond band with 14K white gold and channel setting
  • And the Trinity Wedding band, a rather pricey 4 carat diamond eternity band

The rings covered different price points from over $6,000 to as low as $300. The next thing I considered was my budget.

Setting a Budget for the Wedding Ring

Once I had several options from the Best Brilliance wedding ring collection, we sat down and decided together how much we were willing to spend on the rings.

Fortunately, the options I had selected at Best Brilliance perfectly suited different budgets. Our goal was to spend around 3% of our wedding budget on wedding rings so we finally decided to go for the Annabelle Wedding band and the Amelia Wedding band. Both rings featured a 0.5 carat diamond and 14K white gold.

They were also within our price range. Best of all, Best Brilliance delivered the rings in a luxurious package to suit my special occasion.


Finding the perfect wedding ring may seem like a difficult process at first but as soon as you identify the right vendor or jeweler to buy from everything works smoothly.

There are of course numerous factors to consider such as the right stone, setting, style, and of course your budget. Luckily for me, I found very helpful customer care people at Best Brilliance to guide me along the entire journey.

You may also need to involve your significant other in every step of the way to ensure that you’re making the right choice and avoid disappointments or conflicts later on as you prepare for the big day.
