When you first get engaged, a lot of focus is placed on your engagement ring, and thoughts of your wedding ring get pushed to the back burner. Then, when it comes time to choose the ideal band for the occasion, there are so many options that you will need to sort through. Do not be concerned; the Diamond Registry experts who work with our wedding bands will ensure that your engagement ring and wedding band perfectly complement one another.
Ask Yourself Two Questions
Before going out to look for wedding rings, the first thing you are going to want to do is ask yourself these two questions: Do I want my two rings to match exactly, and will I want to solder the two together at some point in the future? If you already know the answers to these questions, it will be easier to reduce the number of options and eliminate some of them.
Picking Out The Band
Keep in mind that shopping for rings ought to be enjoyable even though you might feel pressured to make a serious choice when selecting your wedding band. When you first start looking at rings, there are a few things you should keep in mind, including the following:
- Metal type: Choosing a wedding band metal that is the same as the one used for your engagement ring is never a poor decision. Because of this, it is possible for them to appear to be a more cohesive unit and as though they belong together. However, our wedding bands Diamond Registry specialists have noticed a significant shift in the industry, and that shift is the rise of mixed metal wedding bands. This can mean choosing a wedding band that has two different colors of metal or a band that is a different metal color than the one on your other ring.
- Stone shape:Another helpful piece of advice for achieving uniformity and selecting a wedding band that goes with your engagement ring is to consider the cut of the stones. You should make sure that the shape of the center stone in your engagement ring is the same as the shape of the center stone in your wedding band. If your engagement ring has more than one type of stone shape, you can even create a custom band that also has all of those different types of stones if you want to!
- Color:In the event that you decided to go with a more conventional diamond engagement ring, the wedding band that you choose can serve as an opportunity for you to include some color in your bridal set. Make the wedding ring even more magical and significant by including an element that is meaningful to you and your significant other, such as their birthstone or your favorite color. If colored gemstones are not your thing, then the way to go is to keep it simple by using just a metal band or by using diamonds as the only accents on the ring.
- Contour bands:Some diamond engagement rings are fashioned in a manner that, when worn together with a conventional wedding band, leaves a space between the two rings. In this case, if the space bothers you, you will want to consider getting a contour or curved band that curves to fit the shape of your center stone exactly, creating a seamless appearance of two bands. This can be accomplished by getting a band that curves to fit the shape of your center stone.
Consider Your Lifestyle
Because you will be required to wear your wedding band on a daily basis, it is essential that you select one that is not only comfortable but also complements your way of life. It's possible that a narrower band will feel more comfortable on you than a wider one if you lead a more active lifestyle. If you spend a lot of time working with your hands, you might find that a band with fewer embellishments or gemstones is more comfortable for you to wear than one that is more ornate.
