Selecting an engagement ring and wedding band can be one of the most exciting decisions you'll make as a bride. It can be a very personal experience and the ring pairing should be something you'll love since you'll be wearing these rings for the rest of your life.
It can sometimes be overwhelming to choose wisely without settling for something you don’t love. Use the following guide on how to match your engagement ring and wedding band to help alleviate some of the pressure. Keep reading to learn more!
In order to avoid a stark contrast in your ring pairing, you should select a metal in your engagement ring and wedding band that matches or complements the other. A set that doesn't go well together will be very noticeable and can usually distract or take away from the beauty of the pieces as a set.
Wedding Band Styles
Pairing your wedding band and engagement ring comes down to finding the proper balance. For example, a wedding band that is too plain or simple will not do justice to a more intricate engagement ring, and a band with too much detail may overshadow it.
An excellent way to find a balance in your ring pairing is to select a wedding band with a similar level of detail to your engagement ring. Here are a couple of different styles to consider:
A straight band lined with stones, like that of an eternity band, is a good complement to an engagement ring with a more intricate setting. The stones on the wedding band will help to highlight the detail on the engagement ring and create a cohesive look.
Crown bands are designed to fit snugly around the main stone in your engagement ring. This style of wedding band is perfect for showcasing the main stone in your ring. They are available in a variety of metals, so you can find the perfect match for your ring.
Certain stones will look better with different styles of wedding bands, so consider this during your ring pairing. If you have an engagement ring with a large center stone, in order to create a cohesive look, you may want to consider pairing it with a wedding band that has smaller stones in the band.
When selecting a wedding band to pair with your pear-shaped engagement ring, crown bands are a great option. If you are looking for a more classic look, an eternity band is a good option, as they fit well with round stones.
Picking your perfect wedding band can be a stressful decision. When choosing your style, there’s a lot to keep in mind. Hopefully, after reviewing this information, you feel better prepared on how to match your engagement ring and wedding band, and can find a combo that you love.
