Since Nil is coming down soon, I thought it would be nice to get back into the wedding prep mood after a bout of potholes and not-so-fun wedding-related stuff.
I know a lot of people out there don’t wear their wedding rings simply because after a certain period of time (and wear & tear), the wedding ring will almost definitely require polishing of some sort which costs quite a nice sum and thins the ring itself. If your wedding band has a bling-bling (read: diamonds), it’ll probably attract some fair bit of attention and I don’t mean the pleasant shock and gasp type. So, after scouting around and doing much research (I guess it’ll just have to be me since men don’t know much about jewelery except the price), I thought it would be nice to get platinum rings.
Platinum is harder, resistant to daily wear & tear, and is much more durable compared to pure gold and/or silver, requiring less polishing. However, one downside to this is that because it’s harder in terms of “bendable” and crafting qualities, platinum rings tend to be simple and plain.
Trouble is…which design?
The very simple look…
…or the braided rope/knot look to symbolize oneness and continuity…
And next thing: do jewellers here do custom-made rings and how much damage would that result in?
