A beautiful and memorable wedding is every girl’s dream. It is for this reason that most of these “soon-to-be brides” are indeed getting into the tiniest of its details just to make sure everything will be perfect on their big day. One of the most important things for them is choosing the right ring to wear.
This is apparently so because a ring, just like the marriage itself should be a lifetime thing and a constant reminder of that big day that was. And what’s the latest in the market? Wooden wedding ring!
There are some pros and cons that you should know before going for this kind of ring. First, the obvious fact is that it is unique. Seriously, who among your married friends has got one? Maybe there’s one but most certainly not more than five. Furthermore, just like other materials, it can also be personalized. Another good thing about it is that you won’t have to worry about being electrocuted, because wood can resist current shocks and have relatively low conductivity. Lastly, they are inexpensive, and that is quite enough for an advantage.
Now, what about the cons? Just a couple of things to consider, first, unfortunately a wooden wedding ring is unadjustable. But, you have more than one finger anyways so why worry? The second one involves some ethical issues when it comes to material combination. Combining wood with materials such as platinum or gold may not seem a big deal, but for some it will not make sense that you choose for a ring dominantly made of wood, then you would still add metals on it (oh come on!). It is totally not too conservative.
There are perfect kinds of wood that would make the best wooden wedding ring, mostly it’s the hard ones. Some of these are the Applewood, ash, birch, cherry, elm, oak, hickory, maple, walnut and a lot more. One should also bear in mind that there are trees that are endangered and are currently preserved. Therefore, picking these wood types is a big NO or if you must, then bear in mind you will have to cough up a little more than what you would have paid for a ring made from the less-endangered species. In addition to this, make sure that the kind of finishing used in the ring does not contain harsh chemicals that may cause allergic reactions to skin. Remember, wood has a way of interacting with the skin and should it contain these chemicals, the extent of exposure will be greater.
Choosing the right fit
Here are some sample types of these rings:
A hand-crafted ring made of a light Applewood material and costs around $288 in the market. This is the right choice for couples looking for a simple yet elegant ring.
A very simple and classic ring made of Birch. Perfect for old-fashioned couples. It costs around $203.
Classic-styled ring made of Walnut. It is way cheaper than the rest at the price of only around $145, however not lacking of real sophistication.
Getting a wooden wedding ring is no less than awesome as compared to getting rings made of different materials. It is cost-effective and indeed one of a kind.
Greatest of all, it will surely bring any bride into the spotlight.
