Pick The Wedding Rings Matching Your Engagement Ring

Most brides decide to wear her wedding ring together with her engagement one after the wedding date. These two rings will become an essential part of her daily outfits. As a result, the wedding ring should not only match the bride’s personality and style but also goes well with her engagement ring. You should rely on her engagement ring to pick a wedding ring that fits. This will also help you limit your options and make your decision easier. Here are a few suggestions for your shopping.

Factors you should consider

Which ring did you use to ask for her hand on your romantic proposal? You should reflect about it when shopping for wedding rings. There are 3 important factors that you need to take into consideration and find a match between the two rings. They are Pairing, Material and Settings. 

Pairing

You should choose two rings that make a good pair on her fingers. There are two main matching styles that you can choose from: the perfect match and the complementary match. Perfect match is when the two rings will be completely similar from the shape, material, thickness of the ring to the style of gemstone. For example: a plain wedding ring of the same material and thickness as your engagement ring. On the other hand, complementary matching is less strict. You can pick two rings with different designs and shapes as long as they go along well and support each other. For instance, you can combine solitaire engagement rings with pave setting wedding rings.

Setting

Depending on the ring you have chosen for your proposal, your wedding ring may have a completely different style. The setting of your engagement ring has a strong influence on your wedding ring options. You should pay attention to a few elements such as the height of the gemstone, the desired space between the two rings, the prong, etc… This not only affects the overall look but also the comfortability for longer usage as she will wear both rings at the same time.

Material

The safest bet is to choose an engagement ring and a wedding ring of the same material or at least the same color. If you've used a white gold for your proposal, it is better to stick with white gold or platinum for wedding rings. Gold engagement rings can be paired with gold or rose gold wedding rings. However, if you are not afraid of being different, you absolutely can opt for a mix material option.

Our suggestions based on the ring setting

These are the recommendations for popular settings of engagement rings on the market. As you shop for your wedding ring, it is always easier to bring your fiance and try on the options with her engagement ring. It will help confirm your imagination and make the right decision.

The classical solitaire is the most popular setting for engagement rings. It is the classical and timeless choice for any proposal. If this is your engagement ring setting, you have a wide range of wedding ring options to choose from. Most wedding rings can match the solitaire easily. A simple bride can choose a plain or matte wedding band made by the same material. If you want to add more bling bling, your best option is a pave wedding band with multiple small diamond stones. That combination never dates.

Halo setting

If you've picked a halo setting ring for your proposal, it’s time to step up the game and add more sparkle with a pave wedding band. This combination will draw all the attention to the bride. If the main stone is high enough, you can choose a regular circle pave wedding band. However, if the main stone is low, you should go with a special designed wedding band that curves around your stone so that they can support each other. 

3-stone or 5-stone engagement ring

The matching wedding ring option for this engagement ring style is one that has similar diamond shape and band material. If your engagement ring has the round or princess shape diamonds, use the same one for your wedding ring. In case you have selected a mix of gemstones such as sapphire and diamond, you should keep this formula for your wedding ring as well. It will help create a consistency for your rings pair.

Pave band 

Many modern brides opt for the pave band as their engagement ring. The best wedding ring to pair with this sophisticated ring design is another pave band with the same material but thinner band. You can imagine them as a ring stack. To make a difference, you can mix gemstones for your wedding rings so that the two rings are not 100% the same.

Vintage engagement rings are known for special designs and uniqueness. You should pick one favorite element in your ring such as the flower design or special engravement to create a custom wedding band. You should also consider opting for the rose gold or gold material to keep the aged atmosphere of the engagement ring.
