1. Top of Bottom
While it’s ultimately up to you which order you have your rings in, it’s also important to consider them in terms of the design. In some cases, the order of your wedding band and engagement rings could be crucial for a wedding set to sit comfortably on your hand. If the arrangement is not to be determined by comfort, placing the wedding band on top or on bottom could have symbolic meaning.
You might want to consider placing the wedding band on top to highlight your commitment or placing it on the bottom to keep it closer to your heart — the choice is yours.
2. Curved Sets
A curved set represents the perfect marriage between function and beauty, as curved wedding sets are flawlessly contoured to accommodate your engagement ring’s center stone. Everything comes together effortlessly when your wedding band meshes completely with your engagement ring’s size, shape, color, and overall design. Curved wedding bands are as practical as they are beautiful.
3. Matching Stones
Matching stones may sound like a no brainer, but hear us out. Of course, you’ll be able to match your diamond with another diamond, but have you considered cut, color, or even entirely different stones? The world is your oyster when it comes to your wedding set, so don’t limit yourself to just one thing. It’s important for everything to look as cohesive as possible, so you’ll love your rings for years to come, but make sure that whatever engagement ring you have has a lot of options for wedding bands to complete your set.
4. Matching Elements
Your wedding band (and your engagement ring for that matter) should be as unique as you are! It’s becoming more common to incorporate fun elements like vines, branch details, or flowers into engagement and wedding rings; similar to many antique rings from the Edwardian or Victorian periods. If you get a unique engagement ring, adding the same sort of elements to your wedding band would enhance the overall beauty of your set. Not only would they be stunning, but they would also be unique.
5. Triple Stacked
Stacked wedding rings have been gracing the ring fingers of the stylish for years, but the rest of the world is just now really catching onto the trend. Stacked rings add a level of versatility to your wedding ring set. If you don’t want to wear your engagement ring one day? Not a problem! Your rings are able to hold up with or without it and still look like a beautiful, cohesive piece. You can even add to your set for major milestones during your life with your partner. From your first baby and anniversaries to lifetime achievements, you’ll be able to add to your stack as your life together unfolds.
Have an Open Conversation
Finding the perfect set all starts with your significant other. They have the power to completely sway which direction your set of rings will go. It’s a good idea to nudge them in the right direction! It’s so important to have an open conversation about the type of style you envision for your engagement ring. Then, apply that style to your wedding band so everything looks cohesive and beautiful.
It’s also important to do your research and find the perfect retailer that specializes in unique fine jewelry, specifically diamond, engagement, and wedding rings. This way, you will get the best styles, a more unique experience, and a beautiful finished product you will be in love with forever.
