Design My Own Engagement Ring - Don't Forget the Wedding and Eternity Rings

Jul 8, 2008
When designing your own engagement ring it can be very easy to forget about your wedding ring. Many girls have inadvertently selected an engagement ring and then found to their horror down the track that the wedding ring of their dreams does not fit with their engagement ring. This can sometimes be an issue if you admire the more traditional wedding band that has no cutting away.

However the great benefit of having a custom made engagement ring is that your jeweler should be able to accommodate your wishes. If you want a flat band speak up at the design stage so that you are all on the right page.

* Your wedding ring. The wedding ring that you will be wearing is actually a more important consideration than many girls realize. Will you be wearing your wedding ring alone? Will you always be wearing your engagement and wedding rings as a set? Once they are married, some girls opt to just wear their wedding ring solo for day to day activities, preferring to keep their engagement ring for better events. This can have some advantages and disadvantages. The advantage of not wearing your engagement ring all the time is that it is exposed to less wear and tear. The downside being if it is extremely valuable and should become lost or stolen while not on your finger.

If you are planning on wearing your wedding band on its own, do you prefer the look of a more traditional ring or would you be happy to have a cut out band? If you are not interested in a cut away band be sure to mention this to your jeweler before they start work on your engagement ring. The advantage to a cut out band is that it will fit perfectly with your engagement ring and anchor it firmly in place.

Another question you need to consider is whether you will be wanting your wedding ring to have any diamonds in it. This can impact significantly on the design of your engagement ring. Custom made engagement rings allow you to have your engagement and wedding ring made all at the same time. This will ensure that everything will be a perfect match, right down to the width of the matching bands.

* His and hers. Some couples elect to have matching or similarly styled wedding bands. Some custom jewelers such as Tacori have a range of men's wedding bands that complement their bridal jewelry range. Matching wedding bands are not only eye catching but a great way to display your union.

* Eternity rings. Will you be wanting an eternity ring on your first wedding anniversary? Will you be wanting to wear it on the same finger? Will there be any room left on your finger? These are all questions you need to consider and raise with your custom jeweler. Will the style of eternity ring that you have always admired tie in with your engagement and wedding ring?

When designing your engagement ring it is important to consider your wedding ring. One day that gorgeous creation sitting on your finger will have an accompaniment. Your jeweler will be able to advise and assist you with your wedding ring requirements.

Don't forget about your wedding ring in the excitement of designing your own engagement ring.
