    We were already scouting for wedding rings in the Philippines when we started to plan our wedding back in 2015. We both agreed that we'll buy our wedding rings from Suarez wedding rings. Fortunately, in 2016, they released a new set of designs, and we fell in love at first sight with the rings we chose.

    It's simple and within our budget, two of the things we had to consider. Well, to be exact, there are a lot of things you should consider when choosing your wedding rings, and let's try to discuss it, shall we?

    What's the meaning of a wedding ring and why is it important?

    According to our friendly neighbor, Wikipedia, it's a sign that the wearer is married. It's made from precious metal and was first used in ancient Egypt, about 6,000 years ago.

    In the traditional wedding, the ring's important as part of the exchanging of the vows of the couple. Worn on the fourth finger, it symbolizes that the person is declaring his or her life-long love, commitment, and fidelity to his or her spouse.

    How to choose a wedding ring?

    There are a lot of factors to consider when you're choosing your wedding bands. Some of these, which we also considered while looking for our rings include:

    1. Budget - look at your expenses and future expenses. Set a budget and make sure to account it as part of your wedding budget.

    Remember that after all the festivities, the things that you'll have are each other, memories, photographers, and your rings. Yes, call me a sense, but I really think our wedding rings are a great reminder of our commitment.

    I mean, in the future, regardless of distances or misunderstandings, your rings is an instant reminder of your commitment and love to your spouse, right? So, make sure to choose your rings wisely.

    Our rings, for some, may not be that expensive, However, for a couple following a slightly tight budget, we had to find a way to get them without breaking our budget. So, we came up with the second tip.

    2. Flexible terms of payment - it's easy to find wedding rings in the Philippines that are sold with a flexible payment scheme. Most of the jewelry stores in malls offer a layaway plan.

    For those who aren't familiar, this payment scheme is where you pay them a specific amount, for example, 20% of the price of the rings. The remaining balance will be paid within 3 or 6 months, and once you've paid full, that's the time you can get the item. Easy right?

    We chose to get the plan offered by Suarez which is an easy payment scheme within one year. Suarez wedding rings price list differs for every design so you can choose cheaper or more expensive rings. Still, depends on your budget and your personality, too. 

    3. Source - it's easy to find and buy a wedding ring in Cebu City. However, you have to be careful where you buy it.

    There are a lot of stores, such as malls, pawn shops, and the likes, that offers a lot of wedding ring choices. However, we chose Suarez, not just because it offers layaway, but it's one of the most trusted jewelers in the city.

    So, make sure to buy from trusted jewelers near you. Check for online reviews and visit their stores. In this way, you get to see and feel the rings which can greatly affect your purchasing decision, trust me.

    4. Warranty - of course, a wedding ring shop tips is incomplete with considering the warranty. You'll be wearing your wedding bands for a long time and almost 24/7. So, these are prone to scratches or other damage, so warranty is paramount.

    I wanted to keep the guide simple because as you follow these four tips, other things fall into places. For example, the design of your rings will eventually rely on your budget. So, this guide will lead you to other important aspects when buying a wedding ring. 

    All in all, the rings really doesn't matter. Even if you'll buy a wedding ring at P1,000 or P50,000, the most important thing you should always remember is what it symbolizes. That your rings are your commitment to your partner, your future together, and the family that you're looking forward to building. So, no worries, you can always buy a new one, right? ;)
