Many of us like buying jewelry. There are many reasons why we buy jewelry; sometimes we just get attracted to a design and feel that it would look good on us, and at other time we want to buy something that will match our wardrobe or the latest fashion trend. But there are two pieces of jewelry that you will never change in your life, and these are your engagement rings and you wedding ring. An engagement and wedding rings on your finger will remind you of special days and will show the world that you are in a relationship with your spouse.
Buying a matching set of engagement and wedding rings is something that many couples prefer, wearing one above the other on your finger. Although they are a match, you should buy engagement and wedding rings that are not overly matched, but they should complement each other. What you need to consider when buying complementary rings are the metal, the band width, shape and embellishments. Here are some tips to consider when buying an engagement and wedding ring set.
In terms of width, both engagement and wedding rings should be of the same size. You don’t want one of the rings to be overshadowed which will happen if one happens to be larger than the other.
Get the same kind of metal for both engagement and wedding rings. If you have a golden engagement rings, then it would be perfect to have a golden wedding band. It would also be wonderful if you metals have the same color. You don’t get a yellow gold for engagement and rose gold for your wedding because these set of rings will clash in color. If you rings are in the same karat count, then they will last the same time.
Gems, stones, and patterns on the rings should be properly coordinated. Check out the pairings below to find out what you want for yourself.

There should be the same color of stones for both your engagement and wedding rings, if you both rings will have stones. Or use colored stones for your engagement ring and white stones like diamonds for your wedding ring.
Compared to modern rings, vintage engagement and wedding rings have a lot more embellishments. They can include engravings and filigree. It is wonderful to have the same engravings on both rings but one should emphasize the features of the other.
