Traditionally the engagement rings are the show stoppers, while the wedding rings have a much simpler style. Since many people will wear both the engagement ring and wedding ring together they want a band that will enhance and compliment the engagement ring.
Most people will wait a few months before the wedding to pick out their bands and in case you’re unsure of what style to go with we have put together a few tips on what will pair nicely with your engagement ring.
If have an engagement ring which features either a flat or a thinner band like this classic Side Stone Solitaire, choose a wedding band of a similar width and depth. With these flat or thin banded engagement ring you generally want to stay away from chunkier channel set style wedding bands as they tend to overshadow the ring. Channel set bands need to be thicker to secure the diamonds in place. A thicker channel set wedding band wont sit flush against a flat or thin band engagement ring leaving it unbalanced and an uncomfortable fit. A thin or flat wedding band would be perfect for this engagement ring, you could either go for the classic plain metal look or have some delicate pave set diamonds added.
A Multistone engagement ring that sparkles with diamonds or gemstones already grasp most peoples attention. If you are looking for a diamond set band the best thing to do is keep it consistent by choosing diamonds that have the diamond cut as the engagement ring. However, if you are looking for something a little more simple and delicate to soften your engagement ring, a simple thin pave set band adds just the perfect amount of twinkle or a plain band in a matching metal with an elegant engraved detail will be perfect.
