A Guide to Buying Engagement and Wedding Ring Sets
Many of us like buying jewelry. And sometimes we buy jewelry to match the latest fashion trends or else we buy it because we are attracted to its wonderful designs. Although you can change jewelry every now and then, your engagement and wedding rings are two jewelry that will not change in your life. When you wear these rings, you are telling the world that you are in a relationship with your spouse and when you look at them, you will be reminded of the two important dates in your life.
Today, there are couples who match their engagement and wedding rings and wear it on their finger one above the other. Although they are a match, you should buy engagement and wedding rings that are not overly matched, but they should complement each other. What you need to consider when buying complementary rings are the metal, the band width, shape and embellishments. Below are some of the things that can help you find engagement and wedding ring sets.
It is best if the engagement and wedding rings are of the same width. When one of the rings is much larger than the other, then it will overshadow the other ring.
The best set is when the engagement and wedding rings are of the same metal. If you have a golden engagement rings, then it would be perfect to have a golden wedding band. It would also be wonderful if you metals have the same color. You don’t get a yellow gold for engagement and rose gold for your wedding because these set of rings will clash in color.

Gems, stones, and patterns on the rings should be properly coordinated. Check out the pairings below to find out what you want for yourself.
If you want to match your ring with a string of cut gemstones arranged in a continuous line for your engagement rings, the perfect match would be a simple wedding band. A solitaire engagement ring or a three stone diamond band will match with an eternity band for a wedding ring.
If you are considering rings with stones, the colors of the stones must be constant for both rings. Or use colored stones for your engagement ring and white stones like diamonds for your wedding ring.
Compared to modern rings, vintage engagement and wedding rings have a lot more embellishments. They can include engravings and filigree. It is wonderful to have the same engravings on both rings but one should emphasize the features of the other.
