As designers, we often recommend that you consider the look you want for your entire wedding set when you begin creating your engagement ring. Do you like a subtle band that lets the engagement ring shine? Or do you like a band that makes more of a style statement? These are some things to keep in mind when designing a ring and matching band.

Setting Styles


The main thing to keep in mind when designing your wedding band is the height of your engagement ring setting. Height is the single largest factor in sending you down one design path or another.

Typically, higher settings can accommodate a wider range of band designs. These styles lift the main stone in the engagement ring higher off the finger. This leaves room for a band to sit beneath the setting, and fit flush against the shank of the engagement ring.

High Settings

Lower profile rings typically do not have space under the setting for a band to sit against the engagement ring shank. These types of engagement rings call for more creativity in the wedding band design. Curved and nesting bands are popular among these styles.

Low Settings

Wedding Band Styles


The most popular wedding band style is a straight band, either plain metal or set with accent stones. This type of band will complement nearly any engagement ring. However, a straight band may not sit flush against a lower-profile engagement ring. But don’t mind the gap! Pairing a straight band with a lower profile engagement ring and leaving space between them has become a trendy look; it is an updated take on a classic style.

Curved bands recreate a classic wedding set look by arcing around the setting of the engagement ring. This style usually does not use the curve as a bold design choice; rather, it is a way to fit the band against the engagement ring, with the curved part hidden beneath the high profile setting.

Curved Bands

Nesting bands are the most style-forward choice for a wedding band. This style of band is typically set with accent stones that sit against the edges of the low profile setting, adding additional design elements to the wedding set.

Nesting Bands

Standalone bands are becoming a more popular choice among modern brides. A thicker, chunkier eternity band set with accent stones becomes the go-to for daily wear, with the engagement ring worn on the right hand or saved for special occasions.

I must admit that, though accent stones are lovely, the band feels more comfortable when the accent stones are within the band and large, much like the Futuris and/or the Diamond Diva eternity band (channel setting). I know it is challenging to insert diamonds in a channel setting all the way around because twould be difficult to resize, yet that is what I desire. In that case my hand would reflect sparkles inside and out.

I prefer an accented Euro- style accented wedding band.

The first one displayed above. Very ornate, yet the band is also endowed with diamonds. Love it!

I prefer a band with channel set stones. It makes for a comfortable fit. Not too fond of...wait, may I add that I appreciate eternity bands with stones that completely encircle my finger so that I am not concerned when it spends around? And thanks for asking.
