Your wedding rings are a vital part of a marriage. They are the visible sign that you have entered into a lifetime commitment to a significant other and that you are no longer “on the market.” Choosing wedding rings together is exciting and it adds to the thrill of marriage. In the long-term, the right wedding rings help you cement your love and have faith in your commitment when times are not so easy.
For same sex couples, this is a very big deal. Here in Australia, we’re going to have our first same sex weddings in 2018 and 2019 and that means for the very first time, same sex couples are going to be out shopping for wedding rings en masse.
Symbols Of Your Love Shouldn’t Be Symbols Of Other People’s Love
Same sex marriages are going to be special and unique and we believe that that means same sex couples are going to want to be unique in their choice of rings. After all, you don’t find love on a shelf in the supermarket, surely you want to make certain that your rings can’t be found on a jeweller’s shelf either?
Bespoke Wedding Rings For Same Sex Couples
There’s only one way to guarantee that your rings are unique – to have them custom designed by a jeweller that you can trust. We’d like to think that at Burgundy Bespoke Jewellers, we’re that kind of jeweller. We’ll start by asking the right questions:
- What type of wedding rings are right for you and your partner?
- What stones do you think will work for your rings?
- Will you both be wearing an engagement ring or will it just be one of you?
- Will you shop for your rings together or separately and more privately?
- Will you want matching wedding rings or are you each seeking something different to suit your personalities and style?
There Are No Right Or Wrong Answers
It’s important that you know that there are no right or wrong answers to these questions. In fact, same sex couples who tie the knot in 2018 and 2019 are going to be trailblazers. With no traditions of same sex marriage in Australia to fall back on, you are going to be creating the traditions for the generations that follow you down the aisle.
We think that means you can make the decisions that will bring you happiness and you don’t need to be weighed down by the baggage of the past. Of course, diamonds are always going to say, “engagement ring” but you don’t have to pick a traditional ring arrangement to make diamonds work for you, for example.
If you’re going to surprise your partner with a proposal, you can always talk to me about creating a “replica ring” which allows you to propose without committing to the exact design of a ring. Thus, you can keep the surprise factor of a proposal without risking all your money on a ring your partner hasn’t seen.
