How to: Pair Your Engagement Ring and Your Wedding Ring

Tuesday, July 7th, 2020

One of the most frequent questions we get asked here at Chupi is how to paid your engagement ring with your wedding band. An engagement ring is such a personal and unique piece of jewellery and some brides worry they may not find the perfect wedding ring to accompany their precious sparkler, but we’re here to help.

It’s not critical to have a straight ring to ensure it stays flush; we can work around almost all ring types, shapes, metals and sizes. Here are some of the most common questions about pairing rings:

How soon should you decide on your wedding band?

This in entirely up to the couple; there is no fixed timeframe. We recommend giving at least 8 weeks before your wedding – just to ensure the wedding band is perfect. If you are very concerned about finding the perfect wedding ring to showcase your engagement ring, we would suggest having a chat with us at least 3-4 months before your wedding date.

Try different styles of wedding bands

It’s important to get an idea of what bands you might and might not like. We recommend trying on as many wedding bands as possible with your engagement ring – it might surprise you what works best with your engagement ring. When it comes to finding the perfect match for your engagement ring it might surprise you what wedding band you end up choosing. You might go for a totally different style of band!

Do you need to have a gap between the engagement and wedding ring?

This is entirely up to you and how you like the feel and sit of the rings. If you have an engagement ring that tends to spin around your finger over the course of the day, you might like a wedding band that is a little tighter, ensuring both rings stay in place. You might appreciate that the engagement ring and the wedding band tell two unique stories and don’t want to have them attached to each other. We will work with you to find the best fit for you.

Can you mix metals when it comes to pairing engagement rings and wedding bands?

Absolutely, it is entirely up to you. We have some recommendations around matching ring sets, but there are no “rules” about mixing metals.
