As your big day draws close, your engagement ring will be the center of attention, but just as important as your wedding jewelry is knowing how to pair your engagement and wedding band. After all, your wedding band is what signifies that you are transitioning from engagement to becoming married, and just like your engagement ring, you are going to be wearing this for the rest of your life. You have your engagement ring, now here are tried and true options for perfectly matching your engagement ring and wedding band.
Solitaire Engagement Ring Paired With Curved Wedding Band
The best kind of wedding band to pair with a solitaire engagement ring is a curved wedding band. This style fits suitably into this engagement ring, framing it and making it appear larger by making it sparkle and look wider. A similar wedding band is a notched wedding band. Rather than curving around the outside of your engagement ring, there is a small dip in the center of the band that lets it sit flush beneath the center stone. To get the best sparkle, add a curved wedding band to both sides of the engagement ring for a spectacular trio.

The eternity band typically has stones going all around the band (the band is named eternity as it has no beginning or ending) and can feature different elegant cuts such as emerald, asscher, and princess cuts. Choose a band with baguettes of the same shape as the engagement ring main stone.
All Engagement Ring Types Paired With Ring Enhancer
You can use ring enhance or ring guards to create the illusion of wearing two wedding bands, one on either side of your engagement ring. However, in reality, this is just one piece, which has an opening at the center that fits around your engagement ring like puzzle pieces fitting into each other. Enhancers with engagement rings are offered by many jewelers as a wedding set, and you can find ring enhancers on different types of cuts and settings. The best look of enhancers comes when they are worn with engagement rings, so if you are planning to wear only a wedding band for some activities, then you would do well to avoid this style.
