Wedding Band 101

Finding the perfect wedding band to go with your new sparkler is a lot like finding the dress!  You want something that's going to compliment your engagement ring without overpowering it, so it may be more difficult than you thought.  Here are a few tips to set you on the right track: Blog A2 1. Go for a wrap, curved, or matching band. It can be a struggle to find something that fits perfectly flush next to your ring, especially if it's a low or large setting. You can choose a sparkly wrap band that surrounds your center stone on both sides, a curved band that allows the setting to sit right next to the center stone if it is too low, or choose the matching band that was made for your ring. Blog A3 2. Stack it up Many brides need something a little more practical than a big old rock that gets in the way of gloves, manual labor, snags things, etc. so a big stack of low-profile sparklies can be unique and stunning.  Take a cue from Emily Maynard and get your bling on in mismatched bands of all sizes. Blog A1 3. Rock the Gap Some brides want their e-ring to sit flush with their bands, and while that's good for those ladies, others just want to rock the gap! It's okay to have a band that doesn't connect right to the other.  Blake Lively's gorgeous pink oval ring and mismatched rose gold band are the perfect example. Blog A4 4.  Go Band-less! When you've got a vintage, uniquely shaped, or large ring, it's alright to let it stand alone and speak for itself! You can always wear a plain band on the other hand or rock it on vacations.  Ultimately, it's your ring, and you've got to rock what you love!
