Many of us like buying jewelry. There are many reasons why we buy jewelry; sometimes we just get attracted to a design and feel that it would look good on us, and at other time we want to buy something that will match our wardrobe or the latest fashion trend. Jewelry change, they come and go, but your engagement and wedding rings will be worn on your finger for a really long time. An engagement and wedding rings on your finger will remind you of special days and will show the world that you are in a relationship with your spouse.
Buying a matching set of engagement and wedding rings is something that many couples prefer, wearing one above the other on your finger. Although they are a match, you should buy engagement and wedding rings that are not overly matched, but they should complement each other. 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. If you have an extremely large wedding ring, it will overshadow your engagement ring very much.
Get the same kind of metal for both engagement and wedding rings. If you have a golden engagement rings, then it would be perfect to have a golden wedding band. Aside from metals, you can also go for similarly colored metals. 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. If you rings are in the same karat count, then they will last the same time.
Gems, stones, and patterns on the rings should be properly coordinated. Check out the pairings below to find out what you want for yourself.
An engagement ring with a string of cut gemstones arranged in a continuous line will match well with a simple, plain wedding band. Or, you can have an eternity band for a wedding ring matched with a solitaire engagement ring or a three stone diamond band.
There should be the same color of stones for both your engagement and wedding rings, if you both rings will have stones. You might try using colored stones for your engagement ring and white stones like diamonds for your wedding ring.
There are a lot of embellishments for vintage engagement and wedding rings. These rings are full of engraving 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.
You can buy sets of engagement and wedding rings at jewelry stores.
