Matching wedding bands or different ones: how to make a choice

Getting married is an exciting experience which often comes with a lot of stress. Every couple has to make tons of choices – deciding on a wedding venue, making an invite list, finding matching wedding bands, etc. The tradition of putting a wedding band on a finger of one’s significant other dates back to ancient times. In ancient Egypt which is considered to be the birthplace of modern wedding rings, brides were given silver or gold bands which they wore on the third finger of the left hand as a symbol of marriage bond. Western traditions for wedding rings can be traced to ancient Greece and Rome. In many Western cultures, people traditionally wear a wedding ring on the left hand ring finger.

Today, his and hers wedding bands are in the center of the ceremony itself so it’s important to select the right rings out of tons of options available for the bride and groom. Modern wedding ring sets for him and her come in different styles, metals, with gemstone and diamonds or without them. Choosing a perfect wedding band can be rather tricky because they not only symbolize the eternal love, commitment, and marriage but also have to match personalities of the bride and groom. Here are a few tips on how to choose a wedding ring sets his and hers that will perfectly express your personal style.

Matching Wedding Bands: Style Consideration

In the past, it was a tradition to get matching rings for couples. These wedding ring sets have to demonstrate that the bride and the groom have the same tastes and belong to each other. But now this tradition has waned and in fact, there is no rule that both of you have to wear matching wedding bands.

Today, many couples choose different wedding bands. This approach allows them to express their individualities and their own unique styles. Besides, it’s a great opportunity for you and your partner to select wedding rings that you love instead of buying something that doesn’t fit your personalities. And keep in mind that what looks great on your spouse may not look good on you.

A good idea is to choose wedding rings with a family resemblance – consider similar mix of metals, design elements, finish or similar shapes. You can also choose different metals in the same texture or the same metal in different textures. For example, if you choose a classic white gold wedding ring for her, you may pick one of the classic men’s wedding bands from our titanium collection to reflect your elegance and emphasize your impeccable style.

Classic wedding rings draw inspiration from the past but that doesn’t mean they have to be boring.

Wedding Ring Sets His and Hers: Metal

Metals that are considered traditional for wedding bands are gold (yellow and white), sterling silver, and platinum and they are popular choices today. They are classic and have been used in wedding bands for many centuries.

  • Silver is not as expensive as other metals but it is not very durable so if you live an active lifestyle, you’d better look for something stronger.
  • Gold is durable and yellow gold wedding bands are the most practical to wear and repair. If this option is not for you, you can choose among other shades of gold like white, rose, and black. A popular choice is a mix of two or more tones of gold in the same wedding band.
  • Platinum is hypoallergenic which makes is the perfect choice for people with sensitive skin but it is expensive and wedding bands made of it are rather heavy so some people may find them uncomfortable.

There are a number of alternative metals for wedding bands such as titanium or tungsten that are becoming increasingly popular due to the growing demand for different looks and durability, especially, when it comes to men’s wedding bands.

At Titanium-Buzz, we offer a wide selection of wedding bands made of a variety of materials that can fit the most exquisite taste.

  • Titanium rings are durable, hypoallergenic, and less expensive than those made of many other metals. They come in a variety of designs to match every man’s unique personality.
  • Tungsten wedding bands are scratch-resistant, long-lasting, and are a perfect choice for active guy or girl. Tungsten carbon rings are a good choice for mechanics, carpenters, and other men who work with their hands.
  • Damascus steel rings are made by blending two materials together so they are strong, durable, and look fantastic.

His and Hers Wedding Bands: Diamonds and Gems

If a plain wedding ring is not your style, there are wedding bands that are set with a variety of stones. Diamonds are typically the most popular choice among couples even if men choose alternative metal rings. Many couples choose wedding rings that feature gems on both bands although sometimes women’s rings contain a few more. Actually, it all depends on your personal tastes.

The most popular are white diamonds, but you can choose color diamonds as well or consider contrasting gemstones, for example, sapphires or amethysts.

Ring Sets for Him and Her: Engraving

Engraving on the inside of the band can give your wedding ring a special unique touch and make it one-of-the-kind. You can use some personalized words or phrases to add individual flair or engrave the same words on the both rings to create unity. It can be the wedding date or a special message for your partner – the choice is yours.

To match or not to match? It’s up to you to decide whether you and your partner should buy matching wedding bands. It would be better if both the groom and the bride select their own wedding rings together to ensure that they are happy with the ring they will wear for many years to come. Remember that your wedding rings are just an expression of your love for each other and they don’t have to match to do that. You should worry less about whether your rings match or not and focus on finding outstanding wedding bands that will make you feel happy, match your sense of style, and express your unique personality.
