What is the Purpose of a Wedding Band

Traditionally, wedding bands are used on the day of your ceremony as part of the exchange of vows between couples to symbolize the sealing of their love and commitment to each other. Whether you opt to wear your engagement ring and wedding band together, or just the band solo going forward, your wedding ring holds the memory of one the most important days of your life close to your heart.

Complimenting Your Engagement Ring

One of the important aspects of choosing a wedding band is matching or complimenting your engagement ring. Whether you want something that blends seamlessly or adds a little something extra to your ring set, keeping the following details in mind will make it easier to find a good fit:

Your Engagement Ring Setting

Not all wedding bands are universally suited to match every engagement ring, which can lead to a jarring mismatch if you’re not careful. Knowing the cut and setting of your ring will make it easier to choose a complimentary band that enhances, rather than competes with your engagement sparkler.

Choosing the Right Metal

Typically wedding bands are selected in matching metal to your engagement ring, but differing alloys or shades can be combined to create a beautiful contrast if you so choose. Ultimately, the only person whose opinion matters when it comes to creating a new style is your own, so feel free to take charge and get creative!
