Finding the perfect engagement ring is not a simple choice, we know. There are so many styles and options to choose from, and we are going to add another consideration to your purchase – the wedding ring pairing. Since the engagement ring will typically only be worn alone for relatively a few months, it’s a good idea to consider the style of band you or your partner will want at the same time as you purchase your engagement ring.
Whether you want to create a matching or contrasting pairing, there are a few things to consider when selecting the perfect band. These include the thickness of the band, the type of metal, and also the setting. Most importantly, you will want to choose a style that uniquely reflects your partner’s or your own individuality. Here are some pointers for when the time comes to pair the ring of your dreams with that forever band of your choice:
Matching Vs. Unique Bands
Will there be occasions where you will have to leave your engagement ring at home and just wear your wedding band? If so be sure to choose a wedding band that is substantial enough to still be its one-man (or better, one-ring) show, and which is not a nesting ring.
Wedding Bands Shapes
Choose a band that will go the shape of your engagement ring and cuts. Solitaire diamonds can easily be paired with any band, but if you go with pear or emerald be sure to find a band that fits under or can work around the setting.
These are a gorgeous alternative to a single band. Rather than choosing one large band, brides can choose multiple smaller bands that enhance the engagement ring. This can be extra fun if throughout the years you’d like to collect stackable bands for future anniversary presents 😉
This lovely technique is designed to go around your engagement ring and complement it by making it look MUCH bigger.
Soldering is the process by which two metal items become joined together through melting down and adding a filler metal—or solder—into the joint between the two. If you plan on wearing both your rings together all the time, you should definitely consider getting them soldered together.
