Reasons to go for a matching bridal set
Choosing the perfect engagement ring is hard enough, but choosing a wedding ring that matches can be extremely difficult. There are a lot of things that need to be considered to ensure that the beauty of each ring is appreciated. Avoid the following pitfalls with a matching bridal set.
Mismatched proportion: The eye is drawn to what we like, and right now your mind might be on going big. For most people this is great news for the engagement ring but a big wedding band could look out of place on her finger. Remember that if you choose a big wedding band it may make a small diamond in the engagement ring look even smaller.
Mismatched styles: Some men are better than others at separating their Art Deco from their modern style and Edwardian from Victorian. But most are not professional designers, and while some style combinations are happy accidents, it's a lot easier when the guessing is taken out of the picture with a matching bridal set.
Mismatched metals: This is important if the metals are of different strengths, where the wedding band could scratch the engagement ring or vice versa. A bright finish on one ring can make the finish on the other look dull. Matching the colour of two rings made in different metals or gold caratage will be near impossible.
Mismatched shapes: If you choose a diamond of a certain shape – for instance the marquise or the pear/teardrop – and match it with a wedding band that wasn't made for it, the sharp end of the gem could interfere with how the wedding band sits on her finger.
A bridal set on the ring finger looks thoughtful, finished and elegant and avoids all of these mismatch disasters. For a matched look that includes the groom, consider 'trio sets', which have a matching engagement ring and wedding band for her, and a complementing band for him.
