If you're someone with an active lifestyle you might want to go for a more durable material like platinum or tungsten that can withstand potential scratches and avoid a ring that has diamonds. With this in mind, it's worth visiting a jewellery store and trying on different styles of wedding bands, which can be really fun! Pay attention to comfort, fit, and how well it pairs with your engagement ring (if you have one).

Ever since De Beers launched their infamous campaign in 1947 and Marilyn Monroe sang that they were 'a girl's best friend' diamonds have taken centre stage as the engagement gemstone of choice. However, long before this, sapphires reigned supreme. Said to symbolise romance and fidelity and a favourite of ancient Greeks and Egyptian royalty, this versatile gem has a rich history and is steeped in mythology. And sure, while diamonds may be a girl's best friend, sapphires are fit for a princess. Sapphires feature in the Crown Jewels and arguably the most iconic engagement ring in modern Royal history, Princess Diana's 12-carat oval cut deep blue gem, now sits lovingly on Kate Middleton's ring finger.
