Nowadays, wedding rings are made from cheap metals, this is why how their price can be explained. At the same time, they do not feature precious metals, or if they do, those metals are in most cases created in a lab, not natural, as they were extracted from a mine below Earth’s surface.
Luckily for those who do not really know what precious metals and stones are all about, we can say that with the wedding rings present on the market today, you can amaze an entire world. Why? Because they are very well made, with the help of the technology that is available these days. Plus, you don’t have to break the bank in order to buy them anymore, like it happened several decades ago, when if you wanted a ring made from platinum, you would have to work to get a ring like that for more than a year. Nowadays, you can buy a wedding ring only plated in platinum or polished with a little bit of platinum powder. And guess what? For a ring like that, you will pay 1/10 or even less than the price of that wedding ring, if it would be entirely made from platinum.
The same discussion can be held in relation to the precious stones that are used on wedding rings today. Although we all love diamonds, we cannot afford buying them. But we like to have bling jewelry on us, to reflect the fact that we have a high financial status, even if we don’t have. In this case, we prefer to buy rings, bracelets or necklaces, that are made from cubic zirconia stones, which have a much lower brightness than the one of a diamond. If you have seen a cubic zirconia stone shine and you said that this is an amazing stone, it means that you have never seen a diamond shine. Fortunately for you, if all that you want is to have a bling jewelry, with which to trick your neighbors and work colleagues, we have to tell you that very few people have seen actual diamonds. So if your main goal is to benefit from a wedding ring that shines and that is cheap, you can get a sterling silver wedding ring, made from non-precious stones, which can shine indeed very much, but definitely not like a diamond, sapphire, emerald or ruby.
If, on the other hand, you want a wedding ring set that you and your partner will cherish forever, that will not tarnish with age, nor turn your fingers green because of the cheap binding agents used by jewelers, that is resistant, durable and precious, we recommend you to search for wedding rings made 100% from rose gold, yellow gold, white gold, platinum or titanium. And we hope that we don’t have to mention also that the stones that will be used on such wedding rings should be authentic as well and natural, not created in a lab.
