You have the engagement ring. It was all that you imagined. He got the perfect ring. Now, it’s time to find a matching diamond ring. In the past, it was customary to get a band that match exactly your engagement ring or your future husbands wedding ring. You would solder the two together and wear them all the time. But in today’s world, the matching ring can compliment your engagement ring and be worn alone while you travel or exercise. Maybe you have a halo engagement ring or a simple solitaire; there are many diamond rings that will add to your engagement ring. Here are our picks of four diamond wedding rings that compliment any engagement ring, including that curved halo engagement ring.
1. Eternity rings set in prongs
This style is great for basically any engagement ring. It’s simple, it’s a classic and can be worn alone or with the engagement ring. An eternity ring symbolizes the eternal love you have for each other. Diamonds are set around the whole band. The diamonds can either be set in a smooth channel or with prongs. We think a simple eternity ring is a perfect compliment to any engagement ring.
2. Channel set diamond ring
If your engagement ring is a classic and elegant solitaire with smooth edges, then the channel set diamond ring is a great compliment to your engagement ring. The diamonds are set perfectly in a smooth channel with either platinum, gold, white gold or rose gold surrounding them. This style of diamond wedding ring is another great option to wear alone while traveling.
3. Spotted diamond wedding ring
For someone who likes the idea of getting something different and unique from the classic styles; a ring with the diamonds scattered on the ring is a great fit. Depending on how the ring is styled, it could fit well with either a classic solitaire engagement ring or a vintage engagement ring.
4. Pave diamond wedding ring
Pave diamond wedding rings generally include multiple smaller diamonds set closely together. You can get either one row or multiple rows of pave diamonds, depending on the style of your engagement ring. It’s a great fit for vintage and halo engagement rings.
All four options are wonderful for your engagement ring. You will be able to wear all styles either together or by itself.
