Wedding etiquette suggests particular gifts should be given at certain times. But for many couples, these gift traditions can feel a little outdated. Here at OM Gold & Diamonds in Perth, we believe you can shower your beloved with gifts whenever it feels right for you.
What is an anniversary ring?
An anniversary or eternity ring symbolises a marriage milestone and is most commonly gifted at significant anniversaries (5, 10, and 20 years). They can be given at any time, so don’t feel like you have to wait for years to treat your love.
Which finger do you wear your anniversary ring on?
This comes down to personal preference. Some people choose to wear their anniversary ring on the same finger as their engagement ring and wedding band, creating a matching set. Others prefer a statement ring to wear on their other hand.
Choosing an anniversary ring
Your ring should reflect the love you have for each other, so go with what your heart decides. From dress rings to extravagant gold and diamond rings, we can help you find the perfect anniversary ring. Just remember if the anniversary ring will sit on the same finger as your existing wedding ring, it should share a similar look and feel.
The 4 most common types of anniversary rings
While you may have a set idea of the kind of ring you want, these are the 4 most common types of anniversary ring settings:
- Channel: This setting indicates the classic anniversary ring style, where the stones are set in a metal channel.
- Pave: this style of ring is where tiny diamonds are set tightly together.
- Bezel: this setting provides your gemstones with an elegant and elevated collar that wraps around the gem in a complete metal edging.
- Prong: a prong setting has tiny metal claws that grip the jewel, holding it in place. This style maximizes light penetration to increase the sparkle of the ring.
If you wonder what type of gemstone and band metal to choose for your anniversary ring, the best answer we have is to ask your partner! The ring should make you both happy and last as long as your love for each other.
Always remember to work with a trusted jeweller to ensure you end up with a high-calibre ring.
