How to Make a Wedding Ring Fit Your Engagement Ring


Gaining a wedding ring on your wedding day is a joyous occasion. A wedding ring is a real symbol of your love and commitment, but if you’ve already been wearing your engagement ring for some time, it may feel odd to add a wedding ring to your ring finger. And this is the joy that having a wedding ring that fits your engagement ring can bring.

Wondering how to find a wedding band to fit an engagement ring? Read on for our top tips for the best engagement and wedding ring combinations.

How to match your wedding band to your engagement ring

Whether you want your ring to fit flush to your wedding band or not, it’s still important to choose a wedding ring which balances well with your engagement ring. Wondering how to pick a wedding band that complements the engagement ring? There are several ways that you can do so:

Weight of the band: Traditionally, a wedding band is thicker than an engagement ring, but you need to consider the weight of your wedding band. If your engagement ring is already on the chunky side, you may wish to consider a slightly thinner wedding ring.

Stone inclusion: If your engagement ring is heavily bejewelled, maybe you want to opt for a plainer wedding band. Similarly, if you have a plainer engagement ring, you may wish to add a bit of sparkly and opt for a wedding ring which has stones the entire way around!

Metals: Traditionally, you would choose a wedding and engagement ring which are created from the same metals. However, if your engagement ring is an heirloom ring, you may wish to opt for a complementing metal for your wedding ring, if you’d like to make the overall look of both rings more contemporary.

Speak to your local jeweller about which style of wedding band will complement your engagement ring; there may be some readymade pieces that will work well with your engagement ring, or alternatively your local jeweller may be able to create a bespoke wedding band to complement your engagement ring.

How to choose engagement rings and wedding bands that fit together

Want to know how to get the best engagement and wedding ring combinations? There are two ways of ensuring that your engagement ring will fit flush with your wedding band:

Firstly, you could choose a wedding and engagement band set from the outset. This is a wedding and engagement ring pair that come as a set. By doing this, you’ll know that they are designed to work together and sit flush next to each other. And you’ll have your wedding bands from the day dot! If you think this could work for you, speak to your local jeweller about the options they have available for wedding and engagement ring sets.

Secondly, if you already have an engagement ring and you want your wedding band to fit your engagement ring, then the best option is having a bespoke wedding band created. Usually, the wedding band sits beneath the engagement ring, to place it closest to the heart. This will help to determine the shape of your wedding band.

You can have a bespoke wedding ring created to fit around any stones of the engagement ring. Be aware that if you need to go down this route, the shape of your wedding ring will be irregular; this is only really a problem if you ever need or want to wear your wedding band as a standalone ring, but is something to be aware of!

Alternatively, if the stone of your engagement ring is a raised setting, then you may be able to have a wedding band which fits snugly underneath the stone. Speak to your local jeweller about which type of bespoke wedding ring will suit your engagement ring.
