Starting with a preliminary visit: stress-free method to choose your lifetime wedding ring

When it comes to searching for an engagement or wedding ring, the pressure of selecting a lifelong piece can be overwhelming.


Because it's something you'll wear for a lifetime, you don't want to compromise, yet you're also concerned about your partner's preferences. Beyond that, we often hear in the atelier about the anxiety of not having the experience of choosing a ring before and not knowing how to choose one.


However, with questions answered, this significant choice becomes a once-in-a-lifetime, exciting experience. Here are some ideas for enjoying the ring selection process without stress.

Secret Preliminary Visits for Ring Preparations

It’s quite common for couples to select something they'll both wear together for the first time, like a wedding ring.


If you’re feeling anxious about this, let’s delve a little deeper into these concerns.

Common Worries and Solutions for Women

Many women express concerns about their partner not being as interested in rings or having limited time due to work commitments.


Couples often experience a disparity in the amount of time they want to spend choosing rings, especially if the partner is not fond of prolonged shopping.


For those worried, a solo preliminary visit allows you to try on rings without restraint.




At ith's atelier, you can try on over 100 different designs of wedding and engagement rings. By trying on rings on your fingers, you can identify what suits you and what doesn't, making the subsequent selection process much smoother.




ith records your favorite designs and allows you to take them home for consideration. Knowing your preferences in advance can make the joint ring selection with your partner much more seamless.
