You can’t get over your engagement ring but now you have to shop for another! Choosing your wedding ring can be a difficult and stressful task because it is supposed to signify the love between you and your husband-to-be! There can be a lot of factors that you need to put into consideration while choosing the ideal wedding ring. You may not always wear your engagement and wedding rings together but sometimes you may and this is why it’s important that both your rings complement each other.
Matching or not?
You can be a bride who would want to match both your rings. The best option for you then is to choose a bridal set. A bridal set has matching wedding and engagement rings. You can also opt for a trio set which includes the groom’s ring as well. Bridal sets give you an ideal matching look and they also look traditional and conservative. You can be a bride who doesn’t want to have traditional matching rings and there are a lot of options for you to choose from. You can experiment with various sizes, styles and colours which give you unique ring looks.
There are no rules for this.
The concept of two separate rings is to signify two separate yet important events of your life. You may have different emotions attached to both your engagement and wedding ring, and you can customize your rings in styles according to those emotions. At the same time, it is important that both of these rings complement each other as you will be wearing them both for the rest of your life. It is important that you genuinely love your rings and know for sure that you won’t ever get bored with either of them.
Here are a few tips you need to consider while searching for a wedding ring that complements your engagement ring:
To have a balanced and equal look between these two rings it is important that these both have the same width. This can be tricky as the width of the metal band could get thinner as it closes towards the gemstone. You can find a lot of rings with different widths based on the design. It is important that you choose a wedding ring with a similar width as your engagement ring. This will create the look of beauty and balance between both these rings.
Choose the metal wisely:
You can choose the same type of metal for both your rings. This will give an aesthetic look and feel to the wearer. The same type of metal in both the rings will complement each other. But if you want to go for an interesting contrast, you can always choose to mix and match your metals. This will give you a trendy and modern look. When you are choosing the metal for your ring, you need to keep in mind that the metal should have durability. You don’t want your rings to go black or stained after a few years of use. You also need to be careful that you don’t use two different metals that will harm each other for example; platinum can easily wear down silver or gold.
How to wear these both rings together?
As per tradition, the wedding ring is worn on the third finger of your left hand, and the engagement ring comes on top of it. You can also get two thin bands of wedding rings and encase your engagement ring between them. This will give you a unique and creative way to wear both your rings together.
