When you wear these rings, you are telling the world that you are in a relationship with your spouse and when you look at them, you will be reminded of the two important dates in your life.
Today, there are couples who match their engagement and wedding rings and wear it on their finger one above the other. The best engagement and weddings rings to buy are those that complement each other and you don’t necessarily have to match them in a very obvious fashion. What you need to consider when buying complementary rings are the metal, the band width, shape and embellishments. Here are some tips to consider when buying an engagement and wedding ring set.
It is best if the engagement and wedding rings are of the same width. You don’t want one of the rings to be overshadowed which will happen if one happens to be larger than the other.
The best set is when the engagement and wedding rings are of the same metal. If you have a golden engagement rings, then it would be perfect to have a golden wedding band. Choose the same metals with the same colors for a beautiful set. 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.
There should also be a proper coordination on the gems, stones, and patterns on the rings. Check out the pairings below to find out what you want for yourself.
If you have a ring with a string of cut gemstones arranged in a continuous line for your engagement ring, then you should pair it with a plain wedding band. A solitaire engagement ring or a three stone diamond band will match with an eternity band for a wedding ring.
If you are considering rings with stones, the colors of the stones must be constant for both rings. Or use colored stones for your engagement ring and white stones like diamonds for your wedding ring.
There are a lot of embellishments for vintage engagement and wedding rings. They can include engravings and filigree. Both vintage engagement and wedding rings should have the same engravings with one ring emphasizing the features of the other ring.
If you have a large engagement ring, then your wedding ring should be a simple one.
