Guide to Matching Engagement Rings and Wedding Bands
How to Match Engagement Rings and Wedding Bands
Engagement rings and wedding bands are a classic combination. Their luxurious and romantic shine is known throughout the world, cherished for their ability to signal a lifetime of commitment and love. Traditionally, they are worn together after the ceremony. It is important to pick two rings that pair well with each other to create an expressive and vivid display. Our team at Diamond on Wabash has put together a guide to some great ways to wear engagement rings and wedding bands.
A ring’s metal helps to define its aesthetic. From the shine to the shade, it’s essential to pick precious metals that suit your tastes. When matching rings, make sure that their materials complement each other. You have two big options. First, you can wear rings made of the same material. This ensures a unified, cohesive, and attractive look. Alternatively, you can pick pieces of different materials that accentuate each other. For this, you’ll want to pair a light metal like white gold and platinum with a more colorful alloy like rose and yellow gold.
Some wedding bands are made to accentuate the center stone of the engagement ring through unique silhouettes and deliberate design. Nesting rings in particular are perfect for this, as they have a curved band that can curl around the engagement ring’s center stone. Some are inlaid with diamonds and other gemstones to ensure a brilliant, vibrant display that is sure to catch the eye with a glamorous style.
Many rings exhibit a style that makes them unique. Floral-inspired designs showcase flowers and other natural imagery to evoke a romantic chic, while more contemporary-oriented pieces sport clean, modern edges. Like with precious metals, it's best to either contrast or match. Picking two wildly different style rings allows them to shine brighter by providing a point of comparison. An engagement ring with intricate vintage metalwork stands out against an understated minimalist band. Otherwise, picking rings with similar styles ensures a unified aesthetic.
