Why an Engagement Ring and Wedding Band Need to Match

wedding ring engagement ring diamond jewelry

When you think of a gorgeous diamond engagement ring and wedding band, you probably think of a beautifully matched set that is so cool even the coolest hipsters swoon when they see it. An engagement ring and wedding band that match are very traditional but with a twist. Some people still value this style of ring because their ancestors wore something like it and it's part of the family history. They want to honor those who came before them by continuing on with this tradition, so why not give it to someone who could become your family?

When it comes to weddings, there's one jewelry piece that's non-negotiable: the wedding band. All brides deserve to have a gorgeous engagement ring and wedding band to match their beautiful engagement ring, but diamonds are expensive. It's important for both pieces of jewelry to match other wise you're going have to invest in new rings. However, with the help of The Diamond Registry, you can easily create the perfect set with ease, without breaking your budget.

Your rings are a symbol of your commitment to each other, so they should symbolize that unity.

Your rings are a symbol of your commitment to each other, so they should symbolize that unity. The two pieces should be complementary to each other but not identical. If you get an engagement ring with a halo setting and a wedding band with a solitaire center stone, they'll look like two separate pieces instead of one cohesive design.

If you're going to spend the time and money on matching rings, you'll want them to match in style, quality and size. Matching styles means making sure both rings have similar elements like diamonds or gemstones; matching quality means ensuring both are made from real metals; and matching size means ensuring each fits comfortably without feeling too tight or loose on your fingers.

It Creates a Seamless Look

When you have two rings that match each other perfectly, it creates a seamless look that will last for years to come. By contrast, if the two rings don't go together well at all — or worse yet, if they clash — it can be distracting and even annoying.

Matching bands allow people to focus on other parts of your outfit rather than the jewelry itself. This is especially important if you're wearing an elaborate dress or gown with lots of embellishments and details on it. Your jewelry should complement the dress without being too flashy or bright so that it doesn't draw attention away from the overall picture of your look.

Matching rings will look better on your hand as a whole.

Your engagement and wedding bands are two parts of the same outfit. They are both on your hand at all times, so they should match in color, shape and size.

If your wedding band is thick and chunky and your engagement ring is thin and delicate, it will create an imbalance on your hand. If you want to wear them together, try to find one style that fits both rings well, rather than two different styles that don't match perfectly for each other.

You don't have to worry about losing one of them since they'll always be together anyway!

You Get to Wear Both At Once

The engagement ring and wedding band connect and complement each other in a way that makes them look like they were made to go together. For example, if you choose a solitaire engagement ring with a split shank, then there will be extra room in the band for diamonds or gemstones that match your engagement ring perfectly. This creates a stunning effect that shows off both pieces at once. If you don't want to wear both pieces together all the time, then it's easy enough to take off one piece when you're not wearing them together — though it's hard not to stare at them in awe!

The bottom line is:don't skimp and save on the piece that goes beside your engagement ring. The matching band should be just as special as the center-piece. If you can't afford the whole package at once, take your time and start with one or the other. But remember, a good-looking ring is all about proportion, so if you can, go for the whole set.
