Getting engaged is one of the most exciting moments in life. Brides and grooms may find it challenging to choose an engagement ring that is beautiful, symbolic of their love, and is a style they will want to wear day in and day out. An additional point of stress can be finding a wedding band that complements and sits flush to the engagement ring. But with the right kind of support and expertise, you should have no problem finding an engagement ring and band that look beautiful together.
How do I know what type of wedding band I need?
First determine whether a straight wedding band will sit flush with your engagement ring. If your ring has a center gemstone that is elevated and sits above the band, then you can likely choose a wedding ring that is straight. Mark Broumand has many stunning straight wedding bands that will sit close to your engagement ring. Your engagement ring may be part of a matched set as designers often create wedding bands specifically for certain engagement rings.
What if a straight band won’t work?
If a straight wedding band will not work with your engagement ring, then a contoured wedding band may be the right option. This type of band matches the curvature of your wedding ring. It is contoured at the front and straight in the back in order to match the contours of your ring. Contoured wedding bands are quite common, allowing your rings to sit flush on your finger, and work well with many different styles of engagement rings.
Notched wedding bands are another option for a great fit with an engagement ring. Rather than bending around the ring like the contoured wedding band, a notched band allows the rings to fit together like the pieces of a puzzle.
When your ring has very fine details around the gemstone or the center stone is an elongated shape such as oval, marquise or emerald, then you may want to go with a band that is contoured and notched.
