While you and your betrothed are a match made in heaven, finding the perfect matching band for your engagement ring setting is another story. But with so many unique bridal sets available, landing on the perfect style doesn’t have to be as stress-inducing as you think. Take time to look at different wedding ring set ideas while considering your personal taste, lifestyle, and budget. The earlier you start, the more time you’ll have to weigh your options. In the meantime, we’ve got the low-down on how to create beautiful wedding ring sets that you will love for years to come.

Here are some things to take into consideration and help you choose the perfect wedding band to go with your engagement ring:

1. Settle on Your Price Point

Resist the temptation to wander into a jewelry store and allow yourself to become captivated by all the sparkle and shine beyond the price tags without having an established budget. Before beginning your search to find unique bridal sets, getting a grasp on your budget is crucial to prevent stress and the potential heartbreak of falling in love with a wedding band you can’t afford.

Take time to sit down with your partner and establish a number that works. This way, you can speak to jewelry experts with a number in mind from the start and only look at wedding ring set ideas that land within your pre-established price range.

2. Consider Your Lifestyle

It is incredibly easy to become swayed by multi-stone bands with eye-catching, intricate details. As show-stopping as many of these unique bridal sets are, they aren’t so great for upkeep if you use your hands a lot. The more intricate the detailing, the higher the chances your ring will snag on something. The more gemstones, the higher the chances that one of them may fall out.

Albeit rare, it does happen with everyday wear and tear. Consider the hustle and bustle of your everyday life and select a design that will fit seamlessly into it. There are endless wedding ring set ideas that are equally beautiful and don’t require as much upkeep as some of the more intricate designs.

3. Don’t Wait Until the Last Minute

We touched on this earlier, but it bears repeating. Finding unique bridal sets can take time, especially if you aren’t too sure of the style you’re leaning towards. Start your search at least three months before your nuptials to give yourself ample time to research, browse, and weigh your choices.

This is even more crucial when opting for a custom ring or incorporating special engravings. These additional services can add extra time to the process, so we urge you not to wait until the last minute to begin exploring wedding ring set ideas.

4. Choosing Your Band Style

Just like the plethora of choices you had when narrowing down engagement rings, the options for unique bridal sets are just as vast. From eternity bands with gemstones all around to solid bands to enhancers and everything in between— take time to research the different styles available (Pinterest is a bride’s best friend) and decide which elements appeal to you the most.

Do you prefer mixing eras? Do you prefer the matchy-matchy look? Do you prefer a soldered wedding band? Once you start gravitating towards a few different styles, you’ll want to try them on with your engagement ring to see if you like how they look together.

5. Choose Your Metal

Mismatching Metals

Typically, wedding bands will match the metal used in the engagement ring. This is the traditional practice, but some brides are all going against the grain. For those with eclectic tastes who prefer extra unique bridal sets, perhaps a mismatched set might appeal to you. There are endless options for wedding ring set ideas, but mixing metals is a bold, interesting take.

For this to work, consider a wedding band that has similar design elements to your engagement ring — with the exception of the actual metal. For instance, a white gold solitaire ring might look better with a yellow gold solid band as opposed to something entirely different. Otherwise, it might take away from the beauty of the engagement ring.

Example: Pair a Platinum Solitaire Trillion Diamond Ring with a band of a different metal, like rose gold, that has similar geometric elements — such as the Eternity Kagkana Diamond Band.

Matching Metals

For brides that prefer the traditional practice of matching metals, there are just as many options available to make equally unique bridal sets. If you prefer the mismatched look, but don’t want to mismatch metals, you can follow the same rule as before to discover mismatched wedding ring set ideas that have different design elements.

You may not have to go too out of the box here, either. Start by choosing a band of the same metal with slightly different, but somewhat similar design elements as your wedding band to offer a unique effect that’s still relatively traditional. If you prefer a more uniform look, you can even opt for a wedding band that is the same design as your engagement ring. For instance, if your wedding band has a pavé band, choose a wedding band with the same pavé for a cohesive match.

Example: Pair the Classic Pave Manika Diamond Ring with the Classic Ardha Diamond Band for a perfectly coordinated look.

6. Consider Different Gemstones

Who says that your wedding band has to be made of the same gemstones as your engagement ring? Some of the most unique bridal sets feature different colored stones, inspiring truly one-of-a-kind wedding ring set ideas. This creates an opportunity to get creative with stunning, heirloom-quality combinations.

Whether you want to incorporate birthstones, your favorite colors, or sentimental gemstones, you can opt for a band that is similar in design to your engagement ring or something entirely different altogether.

Example: Pair the Art Deco Daiva Diamond Ring with the Half Eternity Zanais Citrine Band. These bands have similar styles, making the citrine gemstones still look cohesive while adding a unique touch and a pop of color.

Don’t Forget to Enjoy the Process

Planning a wedding can often become a stressful, anxiety-inducing process. But it’s important to resist the urge to get overwhelmed, especially with something as lovely as choosing the symbol of your matrimony. Find the joy in trying on different rings, browsing jewelry stores together, and finding unique bridal sets that speak to who you are. The more prepared you are, the less stressful the ring-shopping experience will be.
