The fourth finger on the left hand is the focal point of the attire of the woman who had been asked the magical “Will you marry me?” question. It is the part of the body that reveals a great deal about her personality, style and of course, taste. Facts like these only accentuate the huge importance of choosing your bridal jewelry attentively, in order to get exactly what you need without getting ripped off in the process. If the engagement ring is already on your hand, it means that time has come to pick the wedding band that will help you make a mesmerizing bridal set you will love and cherish for a lifetime. Or, if you are missing both – you have come to the right place.
Before we give you some ideas about how to match your engagement ring with the wedding one, let’s hark back to the basics that every woman involved in this quest needs to know.
- May both bands by fashioned in the same style.
This means that if you have been proposed with an engagement ring in vintage style, your future wedding band should have the same flair. Intricate engravings and milgrain designs are the two most popular alternatives to mix and create the vintage bridal set of your dreams.
- Go for the same metal.
This “unwritten rule” is not obligatory to follow, but if you would like a completely lined-up look, it is strongly recommended to stick to it. Brides who prefer the metallic look have more freedom when it comes to this question, as they can combine the “members” of the white metal group, including white gold, silver, platinum and titanium.
- “HIS” and “HER” wedding band do not have to match.
Many soon-to-be-married couples put the matching look of their wedding bands a top priority and this way, consciously or not, they make the selection even longer and harder, instead of the opposite. No, it is definitely not mandatory for these two jewels to display exactly the same look, because it is more important each of the spouses to wear a wedding band that will suit their personal style and will make them feel comfortable wearing it.
- Think long term.
Do not just compose a bridal set that will be “in tune” with what is hot and trendy in the world of jewelry today. Think that you are going to wear your bridal set for the rest of your life and certainly on every occasion. It has to reflect you with every nook and cranny of it, so make sure you pick something you will love and admire forever.
Following are some extraordinary bridal set ideas that are more than promising to come in handy for your special occasion. Enjoy!
