His and Hers Matching Wedding Bands

With summer quickly approaching, that means wedding season is just around the corner. For those getting married this summer, that means time is running out. Every wedding has last minute details that need attention. From the seating chart to the flowers on the wedding arch, there’s always something that gets overlooked. One important detail in every ceremony is the wedding bands, and some times the bride and groom put off selecting wedding rings until the last minute. Despite the importance of wedding bands, choosing them can be so difficult that many people wait too long and end up with something that isn’t perfect. One simple solution, though, is his and hers matching wedding bands.

How To Select Matching Wedding Bands

There are many ways to pair his and hers wedding rings. Perhaps the easiest way to decide on a ring metal. One easy way to choose a ring metal for wedding rings is to match the bride’s engagement ring. If she has a 14k white gold engagement ring, then 14k white gold wedding bands will match perfectly. By reducing the number of options, it can make selecting the right wedding ring for him and her a little easier. Another way to decide on wedding rings is to match the ring style of the engagement ring. For example, if she has a pave set engagement ring, then perhaps the matching wedding bands should feature pave set diamonds.

Mix and Match Wedding Bands

Although most couples prefer to have matching wedding bands, there are plenty of ways to mix and match rings, too. In fact, this is often necessary for couples who find themselves in the “opposites attract” category. Since these couples may have polar opposite styles, it may be easier to find complimenting rings instead of matching wedding bands. However, this doesn’t mean the rings will look strange next to each other in wedding photos. Recently, it has even become trendy to pair different ring metals together to create two tone looks. This can be an excellent way to incorporate a secondary ring metal into the groom’s wedding band. This way, he can have the white gold look he wants while including accents of her rose gold engagement ring.

How To Select The Best Diamond Carat Size

One question many customers ask when first looking for diamonds is “what carat size is best?” Although there is no simple answer because every diamond is unique, there are some basic guidelines to consider. When buying diamonds online, it can be difficult to determine the differences between two diamonds of nearly identical size. While “carat” is one of the four C’s, it is often considered to be the least important in determining value. However, this is a bit of a misnomer as carat size is still extremely important. To help our customers better understand carat size and learn how to select the best diamond carat size for their jewelry, we’ve compiled these helpful tips.

Understanding Diamond Carat Size

The most important thing to understand with diamond carat is that it refers to a diamond’s size. More specifically, though, a carat is a unit of measurement for weight. A carat is equal to 200 milligrams, and each carat is divided into 100 points. For this reason, diamonds that are a half-carat in weight are sometimes referred to as “50 pointers.” When selecting a diamond, the best carat size will be determined by a diamond’s proportions. By comparing the measurements, you will be able to select the best diamond carat for your ring.

Why To Buy Slightly Bigger

Diamond carat size is important when budgeting for a diamond ring. One thing to consider, though, is buying a diamond that is ever so slightly larger in carat size. For example, if you are wanting to purchase a 1.5 carat diamond ring, then you should shop for diamonds with a carat weight of at least 1.51 and up to 1.55. The reason for this is final polishing and shaping. In the last stages of manufacturing, a diamond may require additional polishing to be properly set. This way, when the ring is appraised, it will still have the full 1.50 carat weight even if some of the diamond was removed during polishing. This will help your diamond ring maintain its highest value.

What Wedding Band Width Is Right For Me?

When selecting a wedding ring, many people consider the ring metal and style. However, one element many people don’t consider is how comfortable the ring is on their hand. Finding the right wedding band width is important when selecting the right ring for you. These days, women’s wedding bands come in a variety of sizes. Dainty wedding bands are thinner, and they are the perfect choice for matching thin band engagement rings. On the other hand, many women have discovered the comfort of wider bands. Consider the following factors when choosing a wedding band width.

Dainty Wedding Bands

While there is no specific width that defines a dainty ring, typically these wedding bands are less than 2mm wide. Although dainty wedding bands are smaller than other styles, this does not mean they cannot contain diamonds. Pave set diamonds are the perfect solution to adding diamonds to dainty bands. Finally, consider the size of the engagement ring when deciding on a dainty wedding band. Pairing a simple solitaire to a dainty diamond ring is an excellent way to add sparkle to a matched set.

Comfort Fit Bands

Comfort fit wedding bands are named for their easy fit. However, simply making a ring wider does not necessarily mean it will be more or less comfortable. Dainty bands can still be comfortable despite their smaller width. This is because what defines a comfort bit band is more on the interior of the ring than the wedding band width. Comfort bands have rounded interiors which creates a more relaxed fit that softens the ring’s edges.

The Right Wedding Band Width For You

When deciding the right wedding band for you, the most important aspects are comfort and style. Be certain to pick a wedding band style that matches your engagement ring. This will limit any potential problems when both rings are worn at the same time. Just as important, though, is to pick a width that feels comfortable. Comfort fit rings are available in nearly every style. If you need help shopping for women’s wedding bands, give us a call today at 877-627-5094!

Why It Makes Sense To Buy A Matched Set

Many people struggle when choosing wedding rings. These days, there are more styles and non traditional alternatives than ever. However, many of these options are ultimately impractical and excessively expensive. Unless you’re happy with a rubber ring that symbolically represents your marriage, buying a real wedding band makes the most sense. Additionally, when choosing the right wedding ring for you, consider a matched set. For most women, a matched set makes the most sense as a wedding ring.

What Is A Matched Set?

Matched sets are a type of wedding ring that directly pairs with the engagement ring. A matching plain or diamond accented band is created in the same style as the diamond engagement ring, and many times these rings are tailored to the base of the engagement ring. Therefore, both rings fit flush together; sometimes the rings are soldered together. The main goal of soldering the rings together is to prevent wear and scratches. This is something that cannot be done by stacking a nontraditional ring with a classic solitaire engagement ring.

Picking The Right Matched Set For Your Ring

One misconception is that a matching ring limits the amount of options brides have. However, this is not the case as a matched set can include two custom rings. While you can shop for matched sets that include the perfect ring pairing, this is not the only way for your rings to match. If you already purchased an engagement ring from Adiamor, we can use your custom designed diamond ring and create a matching wedding band. We can do this because we create and manufacture our rings ourselves.

When shopping for the wedding bands, the best advice is not to overthink it. At first, it may seem like rubber or wooden alternatives offer something different. However, these rings will not last like precious metal wedding bands. Additionally, these rings may even damage the diamond engagement ring. A matched set is the perfect answer as it allows for the rings to be paired perfectly. Plus, you won’t have to worry about knocking any diamonds loose.
