There are two rings that a woman will wear consistently and together in her lifetime: her engagement ring and her wedding band. The key word here is together. Traditionally, a woman will receive her engagement ring at the time of her proposal and a wedding band the day of her marriage. Because of the importance of these rings and how often they will be worn, it is a good idea to make sure they look good together. Matching your metals is only one factor. In fact, depending on the cut and setting of the engagement ring, wedding band’s features can either create a cohesive look or appear awkwardly put together.
The solitaire diamond is perhaps the most classic of cuts. Wedding bands that hug the engagement ring, such as those that are curved or notched will look like a perfect pair and frame the engagement stone beautifully. However, due to the simplicity of the cut, eternity bands and simple wedding bands alike will have an alluring appeal.
Oval cut diamonds are certainly trending right now, but what makes them so popular is their universal ability to look stunning with almost any wedding band. This is the stone that you can have fun with! We recommend twisted diamond wedding bands or even botanical inspired ones.
The sharp and sleek looks of emerald and princess cut diamonds cannot be paired with just any wedding band. There is an aesthetic here that needs to be consistent for a collected look. The best way to achieve this is by pairing such engagement rings with baguette diamond wedding bands.
For women who prefer to liven things up, adding color to your wedding band is a great way to bring out personality. Pair them with a solitaire or oval diamond for a conversation starter. If you’re engagement ring has a colored stone, pair it with a wedding band that matches for a complete colorful, show-stopping look.
