Question: How to choose wedding rings you’ll both love?

Men:

  • Recommended style: Plain Wedding bands
  • Recommended material: Platinum if you are going for a white metal. It is much more resistant than white gold and palladium, so it’s the recommended material for men who’ll be doing handiwork.
  • If you’re conscious of cost, we recommend 9 carat white gold. Palladium would be the cheaper choice, but the ring would probably need replacing after a few years.

Recommended products:

5mm court shape platinum wedding ring – £699, medium weight. For men who want a medium-sized ring, discreet and resistant but with a contemporary look.

5mm D shape 9k white gold wedding band – £229, heavy weight. For men who want a traditionally shaped ring, that’ll be resistant but at a lower price.

Traditional 4mm D shape yellow gold wedding ring (9k) – £209
Women:

When buying wedding rings for women there are a number of things to take into consideration:

1) Whether she will be wearing the ring with the engagement ring as a set:

If this is the case, we recommend a wedding ring that will match the engagement ring style and that will sit comfortably next to it.

Twist diamond ring in 18K white gold – £499. The curve allows the engagement ring’s centre stone to sit comfortably. This is a beautiful simple classic design for women looking for a sparkly set.

Choosing the metal:

We recommend gold instead of platinum if the engagement ring is not made of platinum because platinum could scratch the engagement ring. To ensure the style is adequate, the rule of thumb is to use the same metals for both pieces of the set.

Slim plain wedding bands are always a recommended style because they are the least likely style to clash, if the engagement ring is an eye catcher.

2mm court shape 18K yellow gold wedding ring – £369, ideal for women wearing rose gold or yellow gold engagement rings.

 

2) If the ring will be worn on its own:

Wearing the ring on its own allows the bride to be more playful with the style and to wear bolder statement pieces.

Channel setting diamond rings, in which diamonds have been set between two rows of metal, are an elegant choice that we highly recommend. They’re pricier, but they’ll never go out of style and will be a ring brides will be proud to wear at all times.

Tell us who you are, your age and what you do…
Joel Mcloughlin, 22, Stylist.

When did you start blogging and how did you come up with the name?
I actually started The Hallowed Ground in 2010, since I finished my studies last year I’ve been able to focus on posting more regularly. The Hallowed Ground came from some song lyrics but the meaning being a sacred place just makes sense to me.

We can see you’re a fan of wearing black, tell us about your personal style and why do you love wearing black? My personal style has evolved so much over the past few years; recently my style has been called a lot of different things e.g. future Goth or neo medieval (what even is that?). Working as a stylist you see so many clothes, all the time, I have a love/hate relationship with clothes themselves. I feel comfortable in all-black, it’s minimal and everything goes with each other. I spend so much of my time thinking of outfits for other people so when it comes to me I just want it to be clean and straightforward.

What are your style influences, and do you have any style icons that you look to for inspiration? My main inspiration is the people I surround myself with, friends, colleagues and other bloggers. I look up to designers and brands like SAM MC London, Rick Owens, Raf Simons, KTZ. But then I look up to less mainstream brands/designers too like OS Accessories, Bond Hardware, Benji WZW and Wali Mohammed Barrech.

If you had to wear another colour other than black and white, what would it be?
Grey? Does that count? But like dark grey haha, I like burnt orange and red too.

What fashion designers are you currently loving and why?
Wali Mohammed Barrech is a really interesting designer I’m obsessing over, the way he uses current affairs to influence his designs and make a statement on society. Also keeping an eye on Benji WZW, he recently showed at Toronto Mens Fashion week and the collection was again- awesome. Finally SAM MC London, multi cultural influenced luxury streetwear – their SS15 is looking so good.

Favourite sneakers you’ve sneaker bought and why?
Nike Air Maxim 1 SP Leather – Tier Zero because they’re black and white, I wear them nearly every single day and they still look like new.

How would you sum up your individual approach to fashion?
I never really think about that to be honest, I think it just comes naturally? You just have to go with your instincts and not really care what anyone else thinks. Sooner or later everyone that judged you will be copying you.

What has been your favourite look you’ve posted on your blog & Instagram?
I think one of my most recent ones with the Simulation sneakers is my favourite.

How important is Instagram to fashion?
Instagram is really important to fashion, it’s important in a positive way in that anyone can share what they’ve seen or what they like. Also in a negative way in that everyone is so obsessed with how the image looks and forget about the time/effort that went in to making that tiny square happen.
