Choosing a Wedding Band to Pair with your Engagement Ring

Choosing a wedding band is an exciting process that can be almost as exciting as choosing an engagement ring. There are so many options to choose from these days and it can be overwhelming trying to decide what kind of wedding band you want. We want to make this decision fun and easy for you as you get closer to tying the knot so we’ve created this helpful guide to help you decide which wedding band is perfect for you.

The first thing you should take into account is the style of the engagement ring. If you have a ring that is really bold and glamorous with a larger carat center stone, you may want something more subdued to go with it so that all the focus is on your impressive ring. You can choose a simple gold band or a pave eternity band to complement it nicely so that your engagement ring is the star.

If you love a super glam and over the top look, you can veer in the opposite direction and choose an equally glamorous wedding band like our Asscher Cut Eternity Band or our Bondi band. This creates a unique look that screams luxury. If you have an engagement ring that is more on the simple side with a solitaire setting or a classic pave setting with a smaller carat diamond, one option is to play up the classic simplicity and pair it with a pave eternity band or our Twilight or Vega band for a dainty and classic look. This also gives you the possibility to style your engagement ring and wedding band in a stack with multiple rings for a cool modern look. You can also take advantage of the simplicity of your engagement ring and pair it with a bold wedding band to make your engagement ring into more of a statement. You can pair it with our Semi Paved Emerald band for a sleek and glam look or our Mood Eternity Band if you’d like the option to change the style when you want.

Another thing you should take into account is the color metal of your engagement ring. Most people will want to choose a wedding band in the same color. For example, if you have a yellow gold engagement ring, you’d choose a yellow gold wedding band. Some people like the mixed metals look so if that’s more your thing, you can combine different metals for a truly unique style. You can even add more bands in different metals and create a fashion forward stack. 


It’s also important to consider your lifestyle when it comes to choosing a wedding band. If you plan to wear your engagement ring and wedding band together all the time or just your wedding band by itself only taking out the engagement ring for special occasions. If you plan to wear both rings together all the time, you want to make sure they work for a more everyday look. Keeping the wedding band simple or in the same design as the setting of the engagement ring is the way to go so that they create a cohesive look together. If you only plan on wearing your wedding band every day, you can choose something that can stand alone as a beautiful piece of jewelry and that will make your engagement ring look extra special when you wear it. We love the Marquisa band or the Aruba band for a stand alone wedding band.
