Curved wedding bands are an absolute must for many brides. Does this include you? The snug fit of the band against the engagement ring gives your wedding set a clean and well matched look. However, there are a couple things you need to know and consider before you commit to any curved band.
Curved Wedding Bands Need To Be Fit
Do not assume that because a wedding band is curved it will fit properly against your engagement ring. Many factors can affect the degree of curvature including the width of your engagement ring's shoulders, the size of the center stone, etc. All of these small factors affect how well your set matches up.
To guarantee the wedding band fits snug against the ring you may need to leave your ring with the jeweler for a few days. This way the jeweler can adjust the band to fit properly. This is especially important if you are buying a curved wedding band that is set with diamonds. Once the diamonds are set any manipulation of the band can loosen the stones make them more likely to fall out.
Curved Wedding Bands Can Not Be Worn Alone
Yes, curved wedding bands look beautiful with their engagement rings, but they look out of place when worn on their own. This may not be a concern for you now because your engagement ring is still shiny and new, but life changes and you may not always be in a position to wear your ring. As an alternative, some brides choose to wear two wedding bands as ring guards framing the engagement ring; no, they will not have the same snug fit but they will add symmetry.
