When selecting your two-tone wedding rings, be certain of the exact ring sizes by using a ring sizing chart or asking a jeweler for measurements. Decide which metals you'd prefer for your two-tone wedding rings, such as yellow and white gold. Buy your wedding rings from a reputable jeweler and do comparison shopping to ensure you get the best price. If you both work with your hands or lead an active lifestyle, choose a durable metal, and avoid 18- or 24-karat gold. Choosing your two-tone wedding rings in 10- or 14-karat gold might offer more protection from dings and scratches.

Consider what type of finish you'd both prefer for your two-tone wedding rings. If you prefer something reflective and shiny, you might select rings that have a high polish finish. This style offers more of a classic or traditional look. Alternately, you might prefer your rings set in a satin finish.

Equally important is choosing the width of your wedding rings. For small and slender hands, the lady's two-tone wedding ring should be narrow and not overly thick. A man's ring will typically be thicker and heavier. Keep in mind that a man's wedding ring will typically be more expensive, as it will generally be made with more metal.

After choosing the metals you'd prefer for your two-tone wedding rings, consider the styling. For a dramatic effect, you might consider a tiered design. Conversely, if you work with your hands frequently, you'd probably do best with a flat ring. Two-tone wedding rings with a concave middle might also be a good selection for those with active lifestyles.

If you'd like to keep your wedding bands attractive yet simple, you might not want any additional embellishments. If you're looking to add a touch of elegance to your two-tone wedding rings, consider the addition of diamonds or gemstones. This might not be the most practical solution when shopping for wedding rings on a budget, however.

Also consider whether you'd prefer to have your two-tone wedding rings engraved. You might keep it simple by having your initials engraved on the inside of the rings. If you'd prefer to engrave a special message, you can add a personal sentiment as well.

Before making your final decision, establish what type of customer return policy the jeweler offers. A 30-day, money-back guarantee or exchange policy should be offered. Returns may not be accepted on personally engraved items, so inquire before you have any engraving or alterations performed.

My friend and her husband wear beautiful two toned gold wedding rings. They both have a very rich and natural looking gold color. They have to be some of the best looking wedding rings I have ever seen.

I would love to have one of my own but I think once you commit to a wedding ring you can't go back. It is symbolic. My husband and I wear simple gold wedding ring sets that are understated but romantic. I would feel like I was betraying something if I traded my ring in for another one.


Definitely look into a return policy before you buy a wedding ring, or any kind of jewelry for that matter. I got married a few years back and it immediately went south. We were literally divorced within two weeks. Biggest mistake of my life so far (It's going to be hard to top that one).

I paid for the rings so I got her's back and took it to the jeweler where I bought them. The jeweler would only offer me store credit. I told him my sad tale trying to convince him that I had no need for a thousand dollar credit at a jewelry store but he wouldn't give in. So I was out the entire cost of the rings.


I think the best way to pick out any kind of wedding ring is for both partners to go into a reputable jeweler that can show you a variety of different rings that you could use as wedding bands. Choice is the key. Don't feel like you have to settle for anything because of a lack of selection or because you are abiding by tradition. It is your wedding ring, you can have it in any style you like.
