How to select the perfect wedding rings...

Q. When you're looking for a wedding ring that's perfect for you, these are some of the things you need to bear in mind:

A. Andrew Leggett says: - Your ring should suit your style. You have to be happy with the way it looks on your hand. Consider the width, depth and profile.

- If you have an engagement ring, the two should complement and sit well against each other. You may need to look at fitted wedding bands.

- Your choice should fit your lifestyle. It needs to be robust enough to stand up to whatever treatment it's likely to face. You don't want it to cause you issues such as catching on objects or people.

Although, there's a huge range of wedding rings on the market, it can still be hard to find one that ticks all the boxes. It's possible your ideal ring doesn't actually exist, so why not opt for a bespoke design? A jeweller or goldsmith could design and make a ring that meets all your requirements, including budget. You'll have a hand in the design process, and will end up with something unique that's perfect for you.
