Wedding rings have traditionally been a plain polished band and this tradition continues but with an extended choice of widths, weights, metals and ring profiles. Diamond set wedding rings are now a more contemporary choice for many couples and offer an even greater range of design and metal combinations. Here at Judith Hart Jewellers we have a wide range of rings set with sparkling diamonds; round brilliant cut, princess, baguette and emerald cut, set in any metal to match your engagement ring.
The choice of colour and metal of your ring is understandably paramount. White metal is now very fashionable but the choice is vast and understanding the differences of 9ct, 14ct and 18ct gold as opposed to titanium, palladium or platinum can sometimes be confusing. It is here where our knowledgeable consultants can guide you through the choices available and ensure the metal you choose will fit with your lifestyle.
The wedding ring is not just for the Bride, the Groom is just as likely to choose a ring to show his commitment and to be able to enjoy the experience of exchanging rings on the wedding day. Diamonds may be a 'girl's best friend' but an increasing number of grooms are now opting for a diamond in their ring.
Finding the perfect ring profile to compliment an engagement ring is a skill in itself, but guided by our qualified wedding ring consultant's and the choice of sample rings we hold in store, we hope you will find it an enjoyable experience.
Choosing a ring, particularly a ring for life can be daunting and an important decision for a couple. Our consultants are available to advise and help with all of your concerns and attain the ring you desire. So why not choose a jeweller you can trust...
The History of the Wedding Ring
Some believe that the oldest exchange of wedding rings comes from ancient Egypt. Rushes and reeds were woven and braided into rings for fingers worn by the women. The circle was the symbol of eternity, with no beginning or end, to give a woman a ring signifies 'never-ending and immortal love'.

Our Guide to Diamonds
Cut, Colour, Clarity and Carat are the worldwide characteristics used to classify the rarity, quality and value of diamonds. Diamonds with the highest combination of 4C ratings are the rarest and most valuable.
Carat refers to weight and therefore the size of a diamond. One carat is divided into 100 points. Size is the most obvious factor in determining the value of a diamond. But two diamonds of equal size can have very different values, depending on their cut, clarity and colour.
While most diamonds appear white, many of them display hints of colour barely discernible to the naked eye. The closer a diamond approaches colourless, the rarer and more valuable the stone. The colour grade begins with D being the most rare and desirable colourless diamond.
When a diamond is cut to good proportions, light will reflect from one facet to another and disperse through the top of the stone, resulting in a display of brilliance and fire. Diamonds that are cut too deep or too shallow lose light that spills through the side or bottom.
A diamond's clarity is determined by the degree to which it is free from naturally occurring inclusions. Many are invisible to the naked eye. The fewer inclusions, the rarer and higher quality the stone, F1 is flawless, VS1 very small inclusions and SI1 small inclusions.
While the traditions and designs may be slightly different today, the sentiment and meaning to love, treasure and honour one another forever, remains very much the same........
"I Love you and wish to be with you forever."
