Brides-to-be who are shopping for their ideal wedding rings – perhaps browsing for this jewellery online – may be tempted to adorn their fingers with something that catches the light at all angles.

Arabella Dupont, executive retail editor at Brides magazine, recommends a diamond band with pave stones, claiming such an item is “the ultimate sparkler”.

For those looking to walk down the aisle in a vintage-inspired dress, finding a ring that matches the tone of the day should not be too hard as the expert revealed these styles are “bang on trend”.

Furthermore, brides should not shy away from coloured stones for their wedding ring in favour of clear gems, as rings sported by the likes of the Duchess of Cambridge set with sapphires and similar precious rocks have proven to be equally as elegant and beautiful as any diamond.

One celebrity who may have already begun shopping for a wedding ring is Anne Hathaway, who showed off her new engagement ring from fiancé Adam Shulman for the first time last week.
