When Gareth and I came to buying our wedding rings, it sounds awful, but they were a bit of an after-thought. We didn’t have a lot of money and the costs of even the most budget-friendly rings in traditional high street jewellers were just completely out of the question.
Gareth is also very particular and wanted us to have rings that were not only awesome, but would last forever. He wanted titanium, and as he’d found my platinum engagement ring at an amazing price, having my wedding band matching was really important.
A hell of a lot of of research and a staunch determination to not have to re-mortgage our house later, we were able to find beautiful rings from Wedding Rings Direct at amazingly competitive prices. I opted for a 2mm flat profile platinum band and Gareth went for one made from titanium with a white gold inlay.

We are proof that expensive high street shops are not your only option when looking for an engagement or wedding rings. Although it might not feel as romantic as browsing boutique jewellery stores together to find ‘the one’, sometimes the budget really does win out. Which is why I’m thrilled that online jewellers like Wedding Rings Direct exist.
Alongside the traditional metals like platinum and gold they also offer materials such as wood, titanium, black zirconium and ceramic. The designs they hold also vary widely – from classic bands to much more decorative and elaborate designs.
And if you don’t find anything suitable from their extensive catalogue, they even offer a bespoke design service where you are able to work with an experienced jeweller to design a ring yourself.
