A diamond sapphire wedding band is a really great idea for that special once in a lifetime occasion.
It is important then to ensure that you get just the right diamond sapphire wedding band and that you get good value for your money.
Here are some pointers to help you select the right wedding band and pay the right price too!
First it is a good idea to know what your budget is. Two months salary is considered a good benchmark for how much to spend although, depending on your financial circumstances this may vary of course.
Pick a good dealer. One who has some experience in diamond sapphire rings and who is also prepared to spend some time with you and help you select something suitable.
The diamond and sapphire should all come clearly detailed with certificates to show exactly what the quality of the stones are. The weight in carats as well as the cut, clarity and color should all be very clearly explained for both the diamonds and the sapphire.
Sapphires are traditionally blue but can come in a number of other colors. The red ones are known as rubies of course.
When buying online always ensure the dealer has a returns policy. When you get a ring home it can look very different to what you see on the screen and in natural light diamonds and sapphires can look a different color altogether. The important point is, is it the color you want? If not then it should be returned.
Likewise in a jewelers shop ensure you are able to see the jewelery in natural light and not just in the bright lights of the store. These are carefully designed to show off all gems to their best advantage but how they look in natural light is important too as that is where one normally sees them.
Mostly it is using a bit of common sense and some patient due diligence to ensure that you get what you want and not accepting something less.
Provided you do the above then you will go along way to getting the diamond sapphire wedding band of your dreams.
