Should I Invest in a Wedding Band to Go with the Engagement Ring?
Wedding rings have long been a traditional and historic approach to signifying your consenting tie to your romantic partner. Statement pieces have dated back to Egyptian times, where rubies and small gems were placed in rings and worn on many fingers.
Since then, the craftsmanship and intricate designs of wedding bands have only improved and provides us the means to carefully and more accurately present who we are and what our marriage means to us.
Many people enjoy wearing a wedding band and engagement ring to not only enhance their style, but to show their commitment to their partner. Even those who may not wear jewelry can make special concessions for their wedding adornments, because of the cultural and emotional significance they hold.
Your engagement ring is a precious token of commitment and love. Should you invest in a wedding band to go with it?
If it’s within your budget, we think you should! Here are some reasons to invest in a wedding band.
In modern Western culture, a husband wears a wedding ring while a wife wears her engagement ring and a wedding band. Many jewelers create bridal sets so that the engagement ring and wedding band match in style and fit together well.
However, just because this is a cultural tradition doesn’t mean you need to follow it. If you have other plans in mind for your bridal rings, that’s great! They should reflect your personal style. There are no hard and fast rules when wearing these bands, and so alternating them on hands or even fingers is more than possible.
While not everyone enjoys wearing jewelry, a wedding band can often be unobtrusive enough to be worn every day without irritation, instead of your engagement ring. Wedding bands are low-impact enough to slip off and store, or wear when the time is right, all at your pleasure.
They are stylish and quite subtle, matching many different outfits with ease. They can also help you subtly declare your marriage, helping you avoid unwanted romantic interest.
Remember that while wedding bands serve as a sentimental piece meant to denote something important to you, they’re also accessories, and you’re supposed to have fun when wearing accessories. This kind of flexibility helps you feel confident in yourself and your styling choices.
When you have both an engagement ring and wedding band, there are lots of different ways that you can wear them. Depending on your mood, outfit, or activities, you could wear just one or the other, or both together! (We wrote a whole blog post about ways to wear your rings together!)
This versatility allows you to always show your love and commitment to your partner by wearing a ring, no matter the circumstances.
It’s Your Choice
Ultimately, the choice is up to you! Wedding bands need not conform to any standard. Investing in a piece such as this is a personal choice, and can be designed in any manner you wish for it to be.
This individuality is something we love about bridal jewelry. Your personal style and the emotional significance of the piece make each ring, and wearer, unique.
