Jewelry is something that we all love to have. There are many reasons why we buy jewelry; sometimes we just get attracted to a design and feel that it would look good on us, and at other time we want to buy something that will match our wardrobe or the latest fashion trend. Jewelry change, they come and go, but your engagement and wedding rings will be worn on your finger for a really long time. 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.
Buying a matching set of engagement and wedding rings is something that many couples prefer, wearing one above the other on your finger. 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. Below are some of the things that can help you find engagement and wedding ring sets.
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. It would also be wonderful if you metals have the same color. You don’t get a yellow gold for engagement and rose gold for your wedding because these set of rings will clash in color. If you rings are in the same karat count, then they will last the same time.
Gems, stones, and patterns on the rings should be properly coordinated. Below are some pairings that you can consider.
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. Or, you can have an eternity band for a wedding ring matched with a solitaire engagement ring or a three stone diamond band.
There should be the same color of stones for both your engagement and wedding rings, if you both rings will have stones. Or use 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. These rings are full of engraving and filigree. The engravings should be the same on both although one ring should emphasize the feature of the other.
If you have a large engagement ring, then your wedding ring should be a simple one.
You can buy sets of engagement and wedding rings at jewelry stores.
