Your perfect engagement ring beautifully sparkles on your finger already? Then you should know that the time for your wedding ring comes soon. It is not a secret that these two bands should be matched harmoniously. Design and gold color, diamond’s shape, and setting play an important role. So how to match the engagement ring with the wedding band?
So the most important rule in this situation is to keep the engagement ring the star of the show! The wedding band should not be more expressive than the first one.
The second general rule for band matching is to buy rings with the same width of the band - thin with thin, wide with wide, etc.
The best variant will be to turn to the same jeweler or designer who made your engagement ring. You can order a custom wedding band that will perfectly fits alongside your ring. A good jeweler will help you to choose the best option for your wedding ring that fit your lifestyle, preferences, and wishes.
Many people think that your wedding band should be made from the same metal as your engagement ring. But we encourage you to be more creative and brave in your decisions. Metals of the rings can be different and what’s more, you’ll get a stunning mix of modernity and creativity.
The most popular mix among brides is a match of yellow and white gold. But don’t be limited by the choice of others, create your own set.
There are two variants of how you want the bands to match with each other: whether they stack together or there is a space between them. Keep in mind that engagement rings with high-set central diamonds, like a cathedral, will let the wedding band sit flush against it. If you prefer that variant then pay attention to simple classic wedding rings: with plain metal, no extras, pave diamond ring, or channel-set wedding band.
The setting of your engagement ring isn’t high, but do you still want it to sit close to your wedding band? Then choose a contoured style of the wedding ring that will perfectly follow the shapes of your ring. It looks very trendy, elegant and modern.
Open Band Wedding Ring
This type of wedding band is also good for matching with your engagement ring that has no high setting. Such a ring has a gap in the middle that allows it to stick closely to the engagement ring.
Engagement and Wedding Ring Set
One more option for you will be to find your perfect ring set. The set already includes an engagement and wedding ring which is matched with each other. There you can opt for a classic band set or something more extravagant and interesting.
A useful tip for you: Discuss the design of your wedding ring with your partner. If you prefer to have identical wedding bands then you should find a couple of variants that both of you like.
