Match the Metals: Each precious metal ages in its own unique way over time. To keep your engagement ring and wedding ring looking their best together over the years, we recommend choosing the same metal for both rings. So if your engagement ring is in platinum, then select a platinum wedding ring.

Now for the Shape
be the one for you. Sometimes a wedding ring with a wishbone or curved shape will fit better. Once you know the shape, we recommend having the width of the band the same as the engagement ring or slightly wider. Leave yourself plenty of time before the wedding to try on different shapes and widths for the perfect fit.

The Finishing Touches
There are lots of options so it’s time to choose your favourite design. Plain rings come in so many lovely forms. The surface of your ring can be highly polished like a mirror or with a brushed finish for a matt look. If you want some sparkle, then diamonds or other gemstones could be set in your ring. If you appreciate handmade or vintage detail, then you may want to consider a patterned ring. Engraved rings with floral motifs and other patterns have been admired for centuries and are popular today.
