So you’re rocking your perfect stunner of an engagement ring and now you’re looking for some inspiration and ideas for the wedding band. Something that’s been on our radar for a while is mismatched rings. It’s definitely not for everyone, but if you lean towards the unconventional, and you would like to have a truly one of a kind set, it might just be a good fit.
Stacking mismatched rings is a way to express your individual style. You can mix metals, say platinum for one ring, rose gold for the other. You can add textures for added contrast, to make your engagement ring stand apart. Beverley Kay offers some beautiful choices in floral engraved bands, set with diamonds and in different widths. You can even add in some color with gemstones like rubies or sapphires. Both Tacori and Parade make several designs with color. Zooey Deschanel chose alternating rubies and diamonds for her eternity wedding bands.
Jennifer Garner wears stacking eternity bands, more of a casual glam look. Varying the widths and the shape of the diamonds makes for endless options. Kate Beckinsale and even the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton are other examples of brides who decided not to match their engagement rings but instead choose rings that will complement them.
These are not your mother’s rings. Here are some of our suggestions if this is an idea you would like to explore. Come in and try them on, you never know, you might be surprised with what speaks to you.
