For ladies – Your engagement ring will be the biggest consideration
Your style of engagement ring and how you want your wedding band to sit with your engagement ring will be the first design consideration to take into account. Would you like a traditional plain band, or perhaps one that matches the band of your engagement ring like the set pictured.
Metal choice will often correspond with the engagement ring, but doesn’t have to – perhaps a two-tone effect is more to your taste.
However remember that different metals behave differently over time, and so keeping all your rings consistent can be beneficial for future maintenance.
Also important to keep in mind is the potential for an additional eternity band in the future, and how that might impact the look of your band with the trio as a whole.
For gents – when choosing material, work should be a consideration
Many men find that harder metals such as platinum and palladium are more suitable to their lifestyle, because they are more durable and require less maintenance than gold.
It is also a good idea to consider any other Jewellery or accessories you wear, and whether you would like your band be consistent with the metal and style of your existing accessories.
There are also design options to consider, and unlike ladies who are bound to matching with their engagement ring, for men this is often their sole piece of Jewellery they wear – so make it personal!
