How to Choose an Anniversary Ring

How to Choose an Anniversary Ring

Much as your engagement ring celebrates your upcoming nuptials, an anniversary ring celebrates the milestones that you have achieved together as a couple. Although these are most commonly given to women, men can also wear anniversary bands. Whether you have an upcoming milestone ahead or you simply want to celebrate your journey thus far, an anniversary ring can be a romantic way to honour the love that you share together each day, week, month, and year.

In this short guide, we take a closer look at this ring to find out how to choose the perfect ring, where to wear the ring, and which anniversary you can honour with this ring.

Choosing an Anniversary Ring

These are some of the most commonly asked questions relating to the anniversary ring. Keep reading to find out more.

Which anniversary should you honour

Most couples choose milestone anniversaries, such as the 10 year, 15 year, 25 year, and 50 year anniversaries. You can choose any anniversary, however. In fact, you don't even have to choose your set anniversary. You could honour the day you met, the day your child was born or any other special day. What makes this ring special is what it represents. This will be something different for each couple. Choose the day that means the most to you rather than a fixed date.

How do you wear the ring?

There are a few ways to wear this ring. Some prefer to replace the engagement ring with this ring. Others prefer to layer the rings on the same finger. Some may even choose the other hand for this ring. Ultimately, it comes down to how you like to wear your rings and what feels right. However you wear it, think about the other jewellery you wear on a daily basis to be sure that the ring does not clash. That brings us to our next question...

What type of ring should you get?

Ultimately, this will come down to your personal preferences, of course. With that said, it is a good idea to choose a ring that can be easily layered or worn next to your engagement and wedding ring. A pave band or something minimal and simple will work well. A very large, ornate ring that overpowers your engagement ring may not work as well.

What else should you know about this ring?

That's just about all you need to know, really. You could surprise your love with a ring on your anniversary but we suggest that you rather make the decision together or get her input for best results. This type of ring is a lovely way to pay homage to your marriage. Whatever type of ring you choose and however you wear it, this ring is sure to bring you just as much joy as your original engagement ring.
