Nowadays, women aren’t so matchy-matchy when it comes to selecting their wedding band for their engagement ring. I love the idea of mixing and matching and going with a different color metal, different setting style, or even a different diamond cut for the wedding band. It took me a bit to get into this trend as I used to prefer more of a matching bridal set style. I think it is fun to mix it up with your wedding band and choose something that complements you engagement ring but doesn’t totally match.
Here are a few examples of rings that would look awesome paired together:
Both rings are similar in width and in this case both feature round brilliant cut diamonds. I like the idea of a white metal engagement ring (white gold or platinum) paired with a rose gold wedding band. What do you think?
The rose gold engagement ring features U pave style diamonds in a 2mm wide shank. The channel set ring also features round diamonds, but it about 3.5mm wide. Personally, I would even go a tad thinner with the channel and keep it about 2-2.5mm wide. We recently did this for a client where we combined U pave on her engagement ring with a channel style wedding band. It looked amazing!
When it comes to wedding bands, be sure to think outside the box. Try on different setting styles and even different diamond shapes to see what really looks best with your engagement ring. It’s fun to mix and match. You never know what may look best!
