Rings on your ring finger typically represent your relationship status, such as whether you're engaged, married, or long-term monogamous.
Following a proposal, you should be given the most beautiful engagement ring, which you should wear on your ring finger until you receive the wedding band during your wedding ceremony.
After tying the knot, most cultures, particularly the United States, wear engagement rings and wedding bands on the same finger, commonly known as the ring finger - which is located right next to your pinky on your left hand. But should the wedding band be put on first?
Inspiration for Wedding Bands
The days of yellow gold wedding bands being overshadowed by engagement rings are long gone. Wide bands, petite bands, eternity bands with diamonds all the way around, and setting styles such as prong, bezel, and pavé are available from expert retailers. All are available in a variety of precious metals and weights to suit your preferences and lifestyle.
Some wedding rings are meant to be worn with engagement rings, while others are meant to stand alone. It is entirely up to you how you choose to commemorate and celebrate your commitment.
Similarly Spectacular: Standalone Beauty
With diamonds, you can make your wedding band truly unique. The French-cut diamond wedding ring, which features half eternity diamonds, is both elegant and comfortable. The crescent-shaped setting allows light to shine through the diamonds and is embellished with classic Tacori details.
Its smooth underside ensures that the row of sparkling diamonds sits flush against your engagement ring.
Bridal Set is Better Together
Engagement rings and wedding bands are frequently designed to complement each other - a bridal set. A shape can be designed to fit together, to contain the same number or type of gem, or to have the same design facets.
The engagement ring is traditionally set with a diamond in the center, whereas the wedding band is either plain or set with accent diamonds.
The wedding band, like the engagement ring, has a single strand of diamonds that travels up the shoulder and is designed to complement the more complex engagement ring, which has a twisted shank and central diamond.
It's an absolutely stunning pair, two rings that fit together perfectly due to their design. The two become one, much like in marriage.
Matching Details: Complementary Pair
If you already have your dream engagement ring, don't be disheartened. When you know how, matching individual wedding bands and engagement rings that are not designed as a set is relatively simple.
Consider the Platinum Ritani 1RZ7241 Cathedral Tapered Solitaire Engagement Ring and the 3mm Platinum Benchmark Comfort Fit Wedding Ring.
Despite the fact that both pieces were designed by different artists, their matching metals (in this case, platinum) make them a perfect match. A matching design or finish can actually allow rings of different colors to look as if they were made for each other.
Today's market caters to everyone, and for many, individual taste has supplanted tradition. Each leading jewelry designer offers a variety of bridal options to suit a variety of tastes and budgets for both ladies and gentlemen.
It is best to look for matching engagement rings and wedding bands at the same time, or as a set. This allows designs and features to be perfectly paired and mismatched rings to be avoided.
