You found your engagement ring, and you love it! Now it’s time to start thinking about your wedding band. Where to start? From traditional to eclectic wedding bands, there are so many options for dressing up your engagement ring with a wedding band. Here are five wedding band looks to help you on your way to finding the perfect one for you.
The ultimate wedding band look is a simple band that pairs with your engagement ring. It may be plain or accented, and it typically matches the metal type of your engagement ring. It’s simple and stunning.

Nesting bands were originally designed to fit alongside halos, bezels and other low-profile rings. Now, brides are making this style all their own by pairing nesting bands with halos, other bands, and even solitaires.

This trend is all over Pinterest. Go beyond a two ring set and add another band or three. Get creative with
matching wedding bands and create your personal look. Some people add a ring to the stack on special anniversaries, at the birth of a child, or as gifts for holidays throughout the year. Create a great stack by mixing plain and accented bands, and choosing different textures.
Tip: Don’t mind the gap! If one or more of your bands doesn’t sit flush against your engagement ring, that’s okay. The negative space can add to the overall style of your stack.

News flash—your wedding band doesn’t have to be the same metal type as your engagement ring. Though it’s traditional for them to match, you can mix it up and pair white, yellow and rose gold in any combination.

Some brides are opting not to get a “wedding band” separately from their engagement ring. This may be because a ring design stands on its own and needs nothing more, or simply because of personal preference.
