Wedding Band
Engagement Rings Bridal Jewelry


custom sterling silver wedding bands. One more consideration in choosing the band of your ring is how thick it should be, or the width of a band. If you are already engaged and are shopping for a wedding, then you will need to consider first and foremost the current design of your engagement ring. (Provided you haven't lost it.)

Why Does the Engagement Ring Bandwidth Matter?
First, there is a certain fashionable trend that suggests that wedding rings should not distract from engagement rings. Instead they should compliment the original item, which was a true expression of sentiment and sincerity. You're not replacing the engagement ring, simply bringing in another ring as a complement. Very symbolic of your future marriage! The secret to making any marriage work is for both mates to complement each other rather as compatible soul mates than to constantly be in battle or clashing over tastes. Similarly, your rings will appear uneven and unmatched if you simply choose a wedding ring you like, but one that doesn't match your engagement ring. Second, you have to think about comfort. You should consider how long your fingers are and how much space is available between the base of your ring finger and your knuckle.

Making a Choice
The width of your engagement band should give you a basic idea of how thick your wedding band is going to be. Usually a wedding band should be the same width or maybe just a little bit wider than the engagement band. A small engagement ring band and a large wedding band would surely clash.

One More Note to Keep In Mind
When you're shopping for wedding rings, remember that the width of a ring refers to the band itself, not the width of the gemstone setting. This setting, which showcases your gemstone, will always be slightly wider than the actual band. When considering the bandwidth of your engagement ring, you're looking at the band itself not the part with a jewel. However, another general rule in matching rings is to not let one ring have a much more prominent stone than the other, since both rings should look as if they were made to be worn together.

When it comes to choosing a width for your wedding band, let your engagement ring be your guide.
