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. But there are two pieces of jewelry that you will never change in your life, and these are your engagement rings and you wedding ring. An engagement and wedding rings on your finger will remind you of special days and will show the world that you are in a relationship with your spouse.
Today, there are couples who match their engagement and wedding rings and wear it on their finger one above the other. 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. What you need to consider when buying complementary rings are the metal, the band width, shape and embellishments. Below are some of the things that can help you find engagement and wedding ring sets.
In terms of width, both engagement and wedding rings should be of the same size. If you have an extremely large wedding ring, it will overshadow your engagement ring very much.
You should also make the metals of both wedding and engagement ring the same kind. A gold engagement ring would be a perfect match with a golden wedding ring. 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. The life of your rings will match if you get them in the same karat count.
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. 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. An engagement ring can use colored stones, and a wedding ring can use white stones like diamonds.
There are a lot of embellishments for vintage engagement and wedding rings. Engravings and filigree are on these rings. 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.
You can buy sets of engagement and wedding rings at jewelry stores.
