Tips For Selecting A Wedding Band That Complements Your Engagement Ring

By: Elizabeth Campbell, Fine Jewelry Buyer


Ring shopping is an exciting and special occasion for couples. This enthusiasm often puts all of the focus on engagement rings, leaving the wedding bands as an afterthought or completely overlooked. However, the wedding band is just as important and deserves some attention, too! On top of that, it’s essential that couples are able to select wedding bands that simultaneously complement and highlight their engagement rings, which is easier said than done. Keep reading to get tips and tricks from Robbins Brothers, The Engagement Experts, on picking out a wedding band that pairs well with your engagement ring.



Engagement Rings And Wedding Bands Both Deserve The Spotlight

Most often, the engagement ring is the star of the show, but wedding bands can also be attention grabbing at the same time! Wedding bands can be beautiful and brilliant in their own way, while still accompanying your sparkling engagement ring. Opt for wedding bands that have the same overall aesthetic as the engagement ring, that are equally as stunning.


Mix Metals And Shapes For A Modern Look

Brides may be hesitant to mix metals and shapes at first, but when done right, these unconventional pairings can prove to be classic and beautiful! This is a great option for brides who can’t seem to decide if they want platinum, white or rose gold…so, why choose? Mixing metals is the perfect route for the modern and chic bride. Additionally, having different shapes on the band and ring can create beautiful contrasts. For indecisive brides, having multiple shapes on their fingers can create excitement and a sense of newness every time they look down at their hand.


Pair Dainty Engagement Rings With Bold Wedding Bands

Not only is it completely acceptable (and trendy) to mix metals and shapes, but it’s also a beautiful statement to pair delicate engagement rings with bold wedding bands. This stunning duo complements one another, without being too overpowering. The two contrasting aesthetics create a gorgeous overall design that is sure to grab everyone’s attention. Differing widths can make for a unique, sophisticated look that won’t go out of style. Mixing dainty styles with bold bands make for a truly stunning comparison. No matter what brides decide, it’s important to keep in mind that the wedding band should reflect their personality and style.


Selecting a wedding band is a lost art for many, but with some tips and inspiration, couples can be confident in their decisions!

Valentine’s Day Proposal Ideas

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! Along with Christmas and New Years, the day of love is an incredibly popular day to pop the question. For anyone considering asking for their S/O’s hand in marriage this Valentine’s Day, but are unsure how, Robbins Brothers, The Engagement Experts, have a few unique ways to pop the question. Additionally, if you need some jewelry inspiration, check out their Valentine’s Day ring guide to take those #CoupleGoals up a notch.

On A Personalized Conversation Heart

Valentine’s Day enthusiasts are all too familiar with the iconic candy conversation hearts. Contrary to popular belief, the sugary treat can also double as a proposal. Instead of saying something cliche like “XOXO” or “Be Mine” create something personalized! Write out a short and sweet message on the candy, give it to them when they’re least expecting it, and when they catch on, have the ring ready. Feel free to indulge as a way to celebrate!

At The End Of A Scavenger Hunt

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has limited everyone from being able to get out and do things to some extent. Get your boo out of the house (don’t forget a mask and to maintain social distancing) for a COVID-safe scavenger hunt around your city. What are they searching for? You of course! They’ll meet you at the destination of the final clue, and when they do, get down on one knee and ask for their hand in marriage. Bonus points if you hit all the spots around your city that are special to you and your partner!

Hide The Ring In An Unexpected Way

If your S/O is a chocolate fanatic, there’s no better way to surprise them than through their guilty pleasure! Sneak the ring into a box of chocolates (before they get their hands on them) and give it to them when they least expect it. When they open and find the ring (and are completely shocked) tell them exactly why you want to spend forever with them. Heart shaped boxes are welcomed and encouraged!

Enjoy A Romantic Night In

If the key to your partner’s heart is a home cooked meal, treat them to a romantic candlelit evening complete with their favorite dinner and flowers. This is a great way to spend quality time, and tell your S/O how you truly feel. End the night by getting down on one knee and watching some cheesy, yet tasteful, romantic comedies.


Valentine’s Day is truly the perfect day to show your partner how much you care about them. They may already be expecting some kind of romantic gesture on February 14th, but a proposal is the icing on the cake!
