Because I am going to Mars, I have no intention of ever needing a wedding ring. However, that doesn’t mean I can’t sympathize with the need to find the perfect pair of rings. You could easily spend several hundred or even a couple of thousand dollars on two matching rings and you want something that’s totally your style without ever worrying about whether your fiancé is going to like it. My favorite advice for buying wedding rings? Make sure you do the shopping with your fiancé because the perfect ring isn’t about the size of the diamonds. It’s about finding rings that you can both agree on. You can consider the shopping experience to be good practice for marriage if you want. You’re talking it out, you’re crossing a few off your list because your fiancé thinks white gold is prettier than yellow (or maybe the other way around), and you’ll be happy with the result once you find something that works for both of you. In the meantime, here’s ten eternity rings that could look good on your finger and come in at less than $1000 apiece on Pompeii3.
