Choosing the right wedding bands is almost as important as choosing the right engagement ring. For the bride the ring needs to compliment and not overshadow her engagement ring. The groom should choose a ring that works with his personal aesthetic as well as his lifestyle.
The right precious metals and the right gemstones are also important as this is a ring you will wear every day for the rest of your life. Platinum jewelry is one of the most sought after precious metals. Many couples opt for platinum because it is durable and can withstand an active lifestyle. Its white color also compliments most skin tones and pairs well with other jewelry and metals. Other precious metals include yellow gold, white gold and rose gold.
A couple’s rings do not necessarily need to match. It’s a matter of personal preference and while some like to match others feel it is more important to have a ring perfectly suited to their style and preference. You may opt for the same precious metal and switch it up with the gemstones.
A bride with a large, showy engagement ring may want a simple wedding band while her groom may want to add more details to his wedding band as it is all he will be wearing. The important thing is that each person has something they will be happy with for years to come.
