If you’re wondering how to choose a wedding ring, our team is ready to assist.

Every bride has an idea of what ring she wants and, if possible, the ring that he’ll be wearing too. This planning is normally a team effort with, mom, sisters, friends and future in-laws guiding to couple and assisting in choices. Your wedding day is a once in a lifetime event, and a day you’ll want to cherish forever. Apart from the dress and venue, your rings are one of the more costly parts of getting married. Find the right pair of rings and you’ll have a forever reminder of your commitment to each other, rings that will satisfy both husband and wife.

Pairing a solitaire engagement ring

A classic solitaire engagement ring is one of the most versatile styles to match and will sit beautifully with a plain band, or – should you choose to add extra sparkle – with a pavé diamond band.

As solitaire rings often sit on a slender cross-section, you may wish to consider a tapered wedding band, where the band becomes thinner in the centre, in order for the rings to take a seat flush and make a gorgeous ring pairing.

Pairing a bezel engagement ring

Given the fashionable classic design of the Bezel ring, pair it with a sleek and minimal wedding band. If you’d like to make it more extravagant choose to have it set with more bezel set diamonds.

For the band to take a seat flush, choose a shadow band that contours your engagement ring. For a wonderfully coordinated pairing, select a band that matches both the metal and thickness of the ring.

Pairing halo engagement rings

Delicate and feminine halo engagement rings make their own unique statement. If you don’t want to distract from the beauty of your engagement ring, opt for a simple wedding band. However, you’ll add an extra touch of glamour by pairing it with a pavé diamond wedding anniversary band. If this is your intent, ask the designer from the start to slightly raise the halo setting to later s eat the band flush to the engagement ring.

The other perfect band for a halo engagement ring is the Tiara ring which softly curves away in a chevron on curved line to hug the outside of the halo.

Pairing tension set engagement rings

As one of the more unusual and bolder styles, the modern design of tension engagement rings showcases diamonds which usually sits in a high or tempered or bypass style mounting. This contemporary setting will pair perfectly with a band that follows the curves of the engagement ring. It is your choice to wear only one or one on either side for balance.

Pairing vintage engagement rings

Whether it’s from the 1920s or 30s, Victorian, Edwardian or Art Deco era, there is something inherently magical about a vintage-style engagement ring.

Be daring – follow the ‘something old, something new’ tradition – by pairing a vintage-style ring with a contemporary wedding band to make a mixture that honours both their classical and contemporary shapes. Alternatively, maintain the inherent style of vintage-styled rings by pairing it with a skinny, engraved or scalloped ring.

Mixing wedding ring metals

There are no set guidelines to matching your rings’ metals, and mixing metals is a modern, fashion forward alternative to traditional ring pairing, so feel free to be as inventive as you wish.

Two-toned combinations can be both elegant and daring. For example, mixing white gold or platinum with a hotter tone metal, like rose gold, will create a stunning romantic effect. If you prefer to make a more subtle statement, try layering white and yellow gold.

Pairing couples wedding rings

Purchasing matching wedding rings is an inherently special and romantic gesture. No wonder it has become a modern tradition! Together, you are discovering the rings that will symbolise your enduring promise and will remain with you both Forever.

Styles of rings vary from the traditional, vintage and abstract to the contemporary, with many women choosing to blend both. No fixed rule applies in modern times and women enjoy experimenting with mixed metals, textures and gemstones. Men have many choices too when it comes to wedding bands. 

The rules have changed to the point where any man, if he likes them, can have a wedding ring that is encrusted in diamonds too. A wide variety of metals are available for men, from silver to rose gold and platinum to tungsten. A customised ring can be made that is comfort-fit and fits his personality.

Personalised Jewellery Makes a Statement

The primary reason why people are so drawn to personalised jewellery is that, for many years, it was thought that the only place to buy jewellery was to point at something in a shop. Although this is still an option, when you can put your money towards something that is made to your specifications and with you in mind, it’s completely different to adorning diamonds that are taken off the shelf. Personalised jewellery is an extension of yourself and your self-expression, which is what makes it so special and unique.

Whether it is a necklace, an engagement ring, bracelet, earrings or a broach, you will know it has been designed and made just for you.
