Tips for Matching Your Wedding Ring to Your Engagement Ring

Congratulations on your engagement! Now that you have your beautiful engagement ring, it's time to find the perfect wedding ring to complement it. Here's a straightforward guide to help you pair your engagement ring with the ideal wedding band, brought to you by Berlinger Jewelry.

💡 Don't forget timing

Purchase your wedding rings at least 4-6 months before your wedding day. This allows plenty of time for any necessary resizing or changes, ensuring that your rings are perfect for the big day.

Tips for Finding the Perfect Wedding Ring

1. Try On Many Options

Don't limit yourself to just a few styles. Try on a variety of wedding rings to get a feel for what you like and what complements your engagement ring best. The more options you explore, the better you'll understand your style. Experiment with different designs, from classic to contemporary, and see how they look with your engagement ring. Sometimes, a style you didn't initially consider might end up being the perfect match. This process will also help you discover what feels comfortable and looks best on your hand. Remember, it's all about finding a combination that reflects your unique personality and taste. We can help you try on ring virtually, via facetime, or you can come into our showroom in DTLA or visit us at one of our pop ups where we bring our full collection of wedding rings.

2. Consider How They Pair Together

Don’t limit yourself to just a few combinations. Think about how your engagement ring and wedding ring look together, as you’re the one wearing this set forever. They should complement each other and create a cohesive look that reflects your relationship and personal style. Consider adding more rings to your bridal stack for a unique and personalized touch. Think of this as a stacking ring set that you can add to over time. 

3. Think About Daily Wear and Lifestyle

Consider your lifestyle when choosing a wedding ring. If you use your hands a lot, you might want a more durable band. Eternity bands with diamonds all around are beautiful but might be less practical for everyday wear. Your wedding band can also be the perfect travel ring.

4. Consider a Contoured Wedding Ring

If your engagement ring has a low-profile setting or a large center stone, a contoured wedding band might be the perfect choice. Contoured rings are designed to fit snugly around your engagement ring, ensuring a seamless and comfortable fit. This can enhance the overall look and feel of your bridal set. We also always suggest wearing your wedding ring on your ring hand so you are not restricted from a design perspective.

5. Choose Complementary Styles

Select a wedding ring that complements the style of your engagement ring. For instance, if you have a pear center stone, choose a band with pear diamond accents or marquise shapes to enhance the overall look. We also recommend matching metals, so if you have an 18K engagement ring for example, you should order an 18K wedding band. 

Wedding Ring Style Guide

Contour: A contoured wedding ring is designed to fit snugly around the shape of your engagement ring, ensuring a seamless and comfortable fit, especially for rings with unique settings or large center stones.

Pavé: Pavé wedding rings feature small diamonds set closely together, creating a continuous sparkle. This style adds extra brilliance and complements various engagement ring designs.

Solitaire: A solitaire wedding ring is a simple, elegant band without additional stones. It pairs beautifully with intricate engagement rings or those seeking a classic, understated look.

Confetti: Confetti wedding rings, like our Luxe Diamond Mosaic Confetti, combine various diamond shapes and sizes in a playful, yet sophisticated pattern, adding a unique and eye-catching element to your bridal set.
