Matching Wedding Bands

Matching Wedding Bands- The SatelitesMany newlyweds decide on matching wedding bands for their wedding day. The tradition of the bride and groom wearing matching wedding bands began many years ago and still continues in many cultures today.

Some couples decide to design their own matching wedding bands. They might consult with a jewelry design expert who will take their vision and craft it into two rings that reflect their own individual tastes.

In this case the matching wedding bands can either be exactly the same or be similar. The bride might decide on a more elaborate design while her husband prefers something simpler. The size and cut of the diamonds can be the same even though other characteristics of the rings differ.

Other couples decide on matching wedding bands that they find at the jewelers. Depending on their budget the choice can range from a simple band to something that is covered with diamonds. When you go to look at the rings you’ll be surprised by how many different sets are available.

Matching wedding bands can be purchased in gold, silver or platinum. The most popular choice in matching wedding bands is gold. Many couples opt to purchase a band that has a single diamond in it. The band that the women wears may be slightly thinner than the one worn by her husband and the woman’s diamond is often larger as well.

Choosing matching wedding bands that also complement the woman’s engagement ring is a consideration. There are matching wedding band sets which include the bands worn by the man and the woman as well as the engagement ring. In this case the bride and groom’s rings are often exactly the same although hers will be smaller. The engagement ring will differ a bit but still reflect the same design found in the matching wedding bands.

In the past tradition dictated that the man would choose the engagement ring on his own and that would foreshadow the design of the matching wedding bands. Most couples now visit the jeweler together to choose the rings.

You can purchase matching wedding bands from a local jeweler. They will spend time showing you the rings and explaining the size and clarity of the diamonds. They will also offer free ring sizing so the rings will fit perfectly during the wedding ceremony.

Purchasing matching wedding bands online can also be an economical choice. Many online retailers are able to offer a discount because they don’t have the overhead of a store. If you do purchase your wedding bands online be sure it’s from a reputable website.
