It's hard to believe that it was only a few years ago when diamond engagement rings were just solid-colored bands of gold or diamonds. Now, we have so many options for diamond engagement rings and wedding bands that if you don't want to simply match your diamond engagement ring in style, there are plenty of other ways to make your wedding band stand out from the crowd.
The eternity band.
The eternity band is a wedding band that is designed to be worn with an diamond engagement ring. It can be made of any metal or stone, and can vary in width from a single, simple band to a double band with ornate details. Some eternity bands have diamonds or other gems; others may have no stones at all.
The choice of whether to wear an eternity band is up to you—and if you do decide on one, there are plenty of styles that would work well with your diamond engagement ring!
The twisted band.
This is a modern take on the classic eternity band, with a little texture thrown in. If you're looking for something different than your diamond engagement ring, this is a great option. It can also be made from gold or platinum and set with gemstones or diamonds, depending on your preference.
The contoured band.
If you want to show off your diamond engagement ring, the contoured band is a great option. The contoured band follows the shape of your diamond engagement ring (or any other jewelry piece) and makes it look like one continuous piece of jewelry. You can even have the width and thickness customized to match the size of your finger. This is also a good choice if you have a larger diamond engagement ring because it will not make your hands look too small or overwhelmed by weighty diamonds that might otherwise overwhelm them.
The half-eternity band.
For those who want something that is not too big, the half-eternity band is a great option. You can wear it alone or with your diamond engagement ring. This style of wedding band can be made from different metals, including gold, platinum and palladium.
The solitaire enhancer.
The solitaire enhancer is a ring that is worn in addition to an diamond engagement ring. It can be worn on the same finger as the diamond engagement ring, or it can be different sizes (usually smaller). The enhancer is usually silver or white gold and often has diamonds set into it.
It’s important to note that even if you don’t get an enhancer with your solitaire, you should still consider having one made for your wedding band. You may want something different than what was used in the diamond engagement ring so that they don't look too similar—for example, I chose rose gold over white gold because I thought they would complement each other nicely!
The triology ring.
A triology ring is a three-stone ring that is similar to your diamond engagement ring, but with smaller stones on either side instead of a large center stone. The center stone of the triology can be the same size as your diamond engagement ring, or it can be smaller than your diamond engagement ring. If you want a more masculine look, opt for platinum instead of white gold or yellow gold (which are softer metals).
These diamond engagement rings can help you make the most of your style, including incorporating a colored gemstone and making your ring set as unique as you are!
If you've got a colorful diamond engagement ring and are looking for a wedding band that will fit with it, look no further! We've rounded up 10 of the best rings to help you make the most of your style.
Include a colored gemstone: If you're looking to incorporate color into your wedding band, consider getting something with an accent stone. In this case we paired our bright blue diamond with a simple platinum band so it doesn't overpower or distract from the main attraction (the diamond).
Make your ring set as unique as you are: The best way to do this is by adding custom engravings that reflect what matters most to both partners in their relationship. For example, if one partner loves hiking and outdoor adventure while another enjoys cooking delicious meals at home—both of these hobbies could be represented through special engravings on their wedding bands!
