ORLA JAMES – Choosing Your Wedding Ring

Today on Marry Me Ink I get to introduce you to Orla James, an online jeweller with a wide range of beautiful rings for the groom as well as the bride!

On the hunt for our own wedding rings, I though I’d take a look at the options for us both and share with you our favourites!

I love the idea of a plain wedding band such as the ones above, especially the Side Curve ring. If you wanted something super plain, there is also the Flat Ring, or maybe something with a bit of design, there is the Classic Court with Milgrain Edges.These were our favourite mens’ rings when looking through the choices (Seriously, there were plenty to choose from!). We especially like the detailing on the tile pattern ring and the simplicity of the Flat Court with Bevelled Edges.

Now, it’s time for my favourite rings of all from Orla James – The rings with all the sparkles (Which I think will eventually be one of my choices!). First is the Full Off Set Single Round Diamond Ring –  The off-centre set creates the illusion of a thicker band which I love. I think the most favourite of mine is the Half Set Medium Baguette Ring – I love that the diamonds in this ring are placed horizontally, creating a slim and sleek design. Another version of this is the Full Set Baguette Ring – with rectangular diamonds placed next to each other, createing more of a shine. Another of my favourites is the Curved Ring Side Set with Diamonds – Curved perfectly to fit comfortably with your engagement ring with the diamonds giving enhanced brilliance.

Make sure to head to Orla James to select your perfect wedding ring! Don’t forget that most of their rings come in a variety of metals – So whether you love white, yellow or rose gold, you’ll more than likely find the ring for you both!
