Jewelry change, they come and go, but your engagement and wedding rings will be worn on your finger for a really long time. An engagement and wedding rings on your finger will remind you of special days and will show the world that you are in a relationship with your spouse.
Today, there are couples who match their engagement and wedding rings and wear it on their finger one above the other. It should be a moderate match, something that will complement one with the other, and this is how you should match your engagement and your wedding rings. The metal, the band width, shape, and embellishments are the things to watch and consider when buying engagement and wedding ring sets. If you are buying a set for an engagement and wedding rings, then you should consider the following.
The band width of both engagement and wedding rings should be the same. If you have an extremely large wedding ring, it will overshadow your engagement ring very much.
The best set is when the engagement and wedding rings are of the same metal. A gold engagement ring would be a perfect match with a golden wedding ring. Aside from metals, you can also go for similarly colored metals. Choosing yellow gold for an engagement ring and rose gold for a wedding ring would not look nice on your fingers since these colors will clash. For the lifetime of your rings, try to get rings in the same karat count so that they will last the same time.
Gems, stones, and patterns on the rings should be properly coordinated. Check out the pairings below to find out what you want for yourself.
An engagement ring with a string of cut gemstones arranged in a continuous line will match well with a simple, plain wedding band. If your engagement rings is a solitaire engagement ring or a three stone diamond band, it is best matched with a wedding ring with an eternity band.
There should be the same color of stones for both your engagement and wedding rings, if you both rings will have stones. You might try using colored stones for your engagement ring and white stones like diamonds for your wedding ring.
A vintage wedding or engagement ring has a lot more embellishments than modern rings. Engravings and filigree are on these rings. It is wonderful to have the same engravings on both rings but one should emphasize the features of the other.
If you have a large engagement ring, then your wedding ring should be a simple one.
