Wedding season is nigh - if you're getting married this Spring or Summer, it's time to choose the rings. Wedding rings are often last on the to-do list, not being technically needed until the big day.

Don't leave choosing this important symbol of your love (not to mention a piece of jewellery you will wear every day henceforth!) until the last minute. Choose something that reflects your personality and relationship. Gone are the days of a plain band being the only option for a wedding ring. As beautiful as they are, there are so many more options to choose from.

Here are some ideas for a wedding ring that you can wear your way.

Personalise it

The most obvious and easiest way to make it yours is with engraving. A good engraver can get a message onto the narrowest of wedding rings. Record a special message inside your rings - the date of your wedding, a shared message or special place.

Bling it up

You can definitely get away with lots of diamonds in a wedding band. If you want to skip the plain band and long wait for more diamonds, just bling it up with a half or fully set diamond band!

Why leave it at a single band? Go for a double or triple row of diamonds to get the full effect, or a large stone cluster.

Shape it up

Choose a different shape for your ring - right now we love the marquise shape or marquise with brilliant cut in a rub-over setting - a stunning contrast to your engagement ring.

Contrasting shapes give a stunning effect, so whether it's baguette, princess, marquise or another shape - get creative with the diamond cut if you go for a ring with sparkle.

Twist it

Wedding rings don't have to be a single band - get creative with infinity style or twist designs to symbolised your entwined lives.

Brown & Newirth's Entwined Forever range does it perfectly.

Diamonds on the side

Take eternity to another level with diamonds not just around the ring, but on the side view as well.

Get sparkle from all angles!

Design it

Go all out - create a statement piece that says something about you and your relationship - your love of travel, a secret message, or unique personal style.

Whatever you choose, it will be right for you - but take it from us, a ring with a little personal touch of style will be your most perfect companion - after your husband of course!
