I picked mine out pretty quickly. It was one that I liked a lot. Simple but with a twist, classic and yet modern in its presentation. Simple yellow gold with a small diamond (all I could afford) and a spiral twist of gold around the gem. Plus it fit perfectly with a different set of wedding band.
Five years later I bought my wife a great silver watch that I knew she would love. But my wife won't mix metals. Knowing this I bought a plain white gold band and commissioned an engraver to engrave into it on all four sides: "flesh" and "chance" in German (my heritage) and "soul" and "fate" in Russian (her heritage). Now both are her wedding ring.
My wedding ring was $50 at Penny's. For my tenth anniversary my wife wanted to buy me a really nice new ring with diamonds and a cool cut. No way. This is my wedding ring. Anything else may be nice, even awesome to behold. But it won't be my wedding ring.1
