Many couples prefer to buy matching engagement and wedding rings so that when they wear it on their fingers, one will sit above the other on your finger. It should be a moderate match, something that will complement one with the other, and this is how you should match your engagement and your wedding rings. What you need to consider when buying complementary rings are the metal, the band width, shape and embellishments. If you are buying a set for an engagement and wedding rings, then you should consider the following.
In terms of width, both engagement and wedding rings should be of the same size. You don’t want one of the rings to be overshadowed which will happen if one happens to be larger than the other.
The best set is when the engagement and wedding rings are of the same metal. If you have a golden engagement rings, then it would be perfect to have a golden wedding band. It would also be wonderful if you metals have the same color. Choosing yellow gold for an engagement ring and rose gold for a wedding ring would not look nice on your fingers since these colors will clash. For the lifetime of your rings, try to get rings in the same karat count so that they will last the same time.
There should also be a proper coordination on the gems, stones, and patterns on the rings. Below are some pairings that you can consider.
If you want to match your ring with a string of cut gemstones arranged in a continuous line for your engagement rings, the perfect match would be a simple wedding band. If your engagement rings is a solitaire engagement ring or a three stone diamond band, it is best matched with a wedding ring with an eternity band.
If both rings will have stones, make sure that the stone colors are constant for both. Or use colored stones for your engagement ring and white stones like diamonds for your wedding ring.
Compared to modern rings, vintage engagement and wedding rings have a lot more embellishments. They can include engravings and filigree. The engravings should be the same on both although one ring should emphasize the feature of the other.
If you have a large engagement ring, then your wedding ring should be a simple one.
