Therefore, make sure the rings you choose are the rings of your dreams.
Finding the perfect style of your wedding rings is purely personal choice and here at The Wedding Ring Specialist, we are proud of our exquisite range of wedding rings. From yellow gold wedding rings to white gold wedding rings, we are sure that we will have the perfect design for you. Whilst many people recognise that gold is measured in terms of carat, many people are unaware of the difference between 9ct and 18ct wedding rings.
It is no secret that gold is measured in carats. The carat is an indicator of the purity of the gold. Carat purity is measured as 24 times the purity by mass. For example, 18ct gold is 18 parts gold and 6 parts another metal which forms an alloy with 75% gold. Our stunning 18ct white gold wedding rings are a beautiful choice for both the bride and groom. They are also proving to be a popular alternative to platinum and also have a bright white shine that many couples are preferring to the traditional yellow gold ring. However, our 18ct yellow gold wedding rings are still an attractive choice for couples; this bright yellow precious metal is still as highly sought after as in previous years.
Alongside our 18ct ranges of wedding rings, we also have beautiful ranges of 9ct white gold and gold wedding rings. The exquisite rings in this range are as equally gorgeous as those in our 18ct collection however they are more suited for those with a tighter budget.
Once you’ve decided on the carat quality of your wedding rings, next up is to choose the style of your rings. From flat wedding bands to D shaped wedding bands, simply browse our website to see which appeals most.

Choosing a wedding ring is an important task; you need to carefully select a piece of jewellery that you will treasure for ever and love to wear for the rest of your life. Gold wedding bands are a timeless and stunning choice for your wedding ring. The history of gold stretches back thousands of years and shows how gold will forever be adored as a precious metal symbolising wealth, beauty and love. At The Wedding Ring Specialist we create exquisite gold wedding bands not just to be cherished on your special day but for a lifetime.
Gold has been a precious and highly sought after metal for what feels like forever. Originally discovered as shiny yellow nuggets, gold soon became a part of human culture. Gold was the first metal widely known to humans. Occurring in a virtually pure and workable state, it is the easiest of the metals to work with. The fact that gold does not corrode or tarnish meant that it was the sought-after metal of royalty and deities in early civilizations because of the brilliance and permanence. The earliest human interaction is way beyond any history book, however its association with the gods, immortality and with wealth are common to many cultures around the world. Humans placed a high value on gold, equating it with power, beauty, and cultural elite.
Prospecting for gold goes back thousands of years, even before money was made out of gold in 700 B.C. The Egyptians, Indians, Chinese and even slaves and criminals were sent to work in the mines to obtain gold. The value of gold was accepted all over the world and the appeal and desire of gold is still as strong today as it was in ancient times.
In the past, gold was used in jewellery to symbolise success in the forms of crowns ad medals. Gold is most famous for beautiful wedding rings as it is an ideal precious metal to express love, commitment, friendship whilst also being exceptionally tasteful.
Here at The Wedding Ring Specialist we have a huge selection of gold wedding bands so you can find the perfect shape, size and cut for you and your partner. You can be sure you will find the perfect ring for bride or groom with our selection of high quality wedding rings styles each with a highly polished finish and stamped with a full UK hallmark.

Brides wearing wedding rings can be traced back to ancient Egypt and it is only the last few decades where grooms have began to do the same. Historically brides wore wedding rings to represent ownership and symbolise eternity. To give a woman a wedding ring signifies immortal and never ending love. Wedding bands haven’t always been made from platinum, palladium, gold and silver – in ancient times the materials include ivory, bone, leather and even iron.
The fingers in which a wedding ring is worn also varies through different stages in history. It is thought that the tradition of wearing wedding rings on the fourth finger of the left hand can be traced back to the Romans. It was thought that there was a vein in this finger directly connected to the heart and referred to as the ‘Vena Amoris’ or the ‘Vein of Love’.
When choosing a wedding ring, most brides opt for a similar style and metal as the engagement ring. It’s also important to ensure that both rings will sit happily together on the finger. We will happily shape a ring for you to ensure it sits comfortably with your engagement ring.
We carry a wide range of wedding rings in yellow gold, white gold, platinum and palladium. We also have a huge selection of widths and weights in d-shape, court, comfort and flat ring profiles – please contact us if there is something in particular you’re after which you can’t see on the website.
