Choosing the Right Wedding Band to Complement Your Engagement Ring

June 12th, 2018

Many women dream of being proposed to with the perfect engagement ring, but what about the perfect wedding band? Wedding bands are just as important as the sparkly engagement rings women wear, so it’s a good idea to put some time and thought into what your wedding band will look like. It’s a symbol that you’ve transitioned from engaged to married, and you’ll wear it for the rest of your life. Here are some great tips on how to find the best wedding band to complement your engagement ring.

Settings Matter

Engagement rings come in a variety of settings like the channel setting, the halo, and the prong. The setting will really help you narrow down what type of wedding band will look best with your ring. Based on your ring, you also want to take into consideration whether you want your wedding band to sit flush next to your engagement ring or if you don’t mind a little space between the two.

Metals Matter

It’s quite natural for someone to pick the same metal for both their engagement ring and wedding band. If you have a white gold ring, then your band will also be white gold. Though sometimes, people don’t mind mixing metals. If you feel your white gold ring would look great with a platinum band, then go for it. You can even try to find a wedding band that incorporates more than one metal, and that way you want have to settle for one metal over another.

Styles Matter

Here are a few examples of styles of engagement rings that usually pair best with the different styles of wedding bands:

- Solitaire engagement rings and notched or curved bands – These types of bands really complement the diamond in your ring and can make the stone appear larger.

- Halo engagement rings and Pavé bands – Pavé bands are great options for most engagement rings, but they can add that extra sparkle to your Halo setting.

- Colored engagement rings and colored bands – Keeping the theme of a specific color for your ring and your band bring a nice cohesiveness and will make your two rings look as though they were made exactly for you.

We hope these tips have helped you narrow done your search for the perfect wedding band, but the choice is ultimately up to your style. Choose something that makes you feel comfortable and something you feel is the most beautiful on you.
