Finding the Perfect Wedding Ring
Try, try and try again
Keep your mind open to trying on lots of ring styles. It's the easiest way to get a feel for what you like and eliminate what you don't like. We recommend trying on different wedding band styles with your engagement ring so you can see if they visually work together.
Think about shape
If the search for the perfect wedding ring seems daunting, a good place to start is to try on bands that feature diamonds that are the same shape as your engagement ring. A round brilliant solitaire ring will always look amazing with a wedding band featuring round brilliant cut diamonds. If you're feeling adventurous, then mix and match your diamond shapes for a truly unique wedding stack.
Plain wedding bands
If you'd rather not distract from the brilliant sparkle of your engagement ring, a simple plain wedding band is a timeless and classic choice. Plain bands are also an ideal choice for active or sporty brides or brides looking for an easy-care ring that won't 'catch' during daily wear.
Pair like with like
While mixing metals can be a fun way to inject colour into your ring stack, we recommend sticking with the same metal purity. If your engagement ring is 18ct gold then it's best to look at wedding rings that are also 18ct gold. If rings of varying purities are worn together, the higher purity ring may rub and cause wear on the lower purity ring.
If your engagement ring features a coloured gemstone, you have a range of options when it comes to wedding bands - the same gemstone as your engagement ring, a complimentary gemstone or even a diamond set band. A diamond band can really highlight a coloured stone engagement ring while a coloured stone band can compliment it beautifully.
A coloured stone band can also be a great way to introduce colour if you have a diamond engagement ring. Maybe a band featuring your birthstone, favourite gemstone or favourite colour?
Curved or contoured wedding bands are a popular choice for brides who want their wedding band to fit flush with their engagement ring. Depending on the engagement ring setting, some straight bands may leave small space between the two rings. If you like the look of a gap or space between your rings, then a pointed band might be for you. Pointed bands add drama and can really highlight your engagement ring, making a statement ring stack.
