A Simple Guide to Pairing Your Engagement and Wedding Rings

A Simple Guide to Pairing Your Engagement and Wedding Rings

Figuring out how to pair your special rings is not as easy as some may think; it does require a little forethought, but that is okay. The following tips will help you pair your engagement and wedding rings.
Matched Set
One thing you can do to match your rings on your special day easily is to get a matching set. There is no need to think about the way you are going to wear this pair because these wedding bands for women were made to look good together. These have the same details and accents, which make it look like one set. All you must do is choose the right style or set, and let the rings do the work for you.
Straight or Contoured
Some brides like to contour their wedding rings to match their engagement rings. This is a process in which the wedding band is bent just a bit to accommodate the engagement ring if the engagement ring has gemstones that cause a little protrusion. Some women do not mind a short distance between their wedding band and engagement ring and leave the wedding band straight, but those who want that perfect fit may wish to consider contoured rings.
Complementary Choice
Some brides do not want their rings to match perfectly. That is okay; you can choose a ring that doesn’t look like a perfect match but rather complements your engagement ring. Talk to your jeweler about the kind of wedding bands that could do that effectively because this is a case by case pairing.
Based on Metals
Those who want their ring to complement the engagement ring may want to consider being led by the metal used in the engagement ring. Say that the ring is 18K gold, then choosing a band with the same metal should match easily, even if the embellishments are slightly different.
Shape and Design
Another thing to consider when trying to match your wedding band to your engagement ring is the overall design of the engagement ring. Your wedding band shouldn’t be too small or big, compared to your engagement ring. You should also pay attention to the gemstones. Be sure that the colors work well together. The stones should align, or the band should have smaller rocks all around the band.
The Look
It may be a good idea to keep the same look for both rings. Say that your engagement ring has a vintage look, then you should have a band that feels the same. Try to keep the look no matter what kind of engagement ring you have, especially if you plan on wearing these rings on the same finger.
Separate and Conquer
Sometimes, it is a good idea to wear the rings separately. This could make it easier for you to do the things you usually do without worrying that one of your rings could slip off your finger. This could happen even to the best-fitted ring if you are very active. Wearing the band on separate fingers frees you up a bit and lets you choose a band that can look pretty different.
Unique Rings
It is okay to find a ring that doesn’t pair perfectly if your idea is to showcase two different and unique rings. Still, rings that don’t match well shouldn’t be worn on the same finger or hand.
The Stackables
Stackable wedding rings are here, and they are making a splash. This option allows you to stack several bands on one finger, which looks stylish. It is easy to match these types of rings since they already have a similar design, and it gives you choices on what to wear every day after your wedding.
Vintage Wedding Rings
Vintage wedding rings you purchased from an antique shop may be a little harder to match since they are one of a kind. When you have a wedding ring or an engagement ring like this, it may be a good idea to stick to a ring that matches the metal. You should also find a way to accent your vintage piece by choosing a somewhat plain ring.
It is okay to feel a little intimidated when faced with the idea of matching a unique vintage piece with another ring. Talk to experts to find out the best way to do this because it can be done with enough time and effort.
This guide should be helpful on your journey of pairing. You can talk to a professional if you have any other questions.
