Wondering about this. . . my FI is coming around to the idea of having an interesting wedding ring– something with a vine on it, maybe. I’ve liked twig-style rings for a long time, and he doesn’t like them so much. It would be kind of nice to have matching wedding rings, and I didn’t think that was an option before, but now we both like the same one! We’re still deciding. . . we have a year and a half until the wedding after all.
Anyway, do your rings match? Or did you decide to get ones that express your individual styles and needs? 🙂

We don’t have ours yet, but they wont match. I want an eternity band and he wants a plain one so yeah hehe.

Ours don’t match, but we do have the same metal. I have a platinum channel set diamond wedding band, and my husband has a plain platinum wedding band.

Pretty much. We both went with very simple bands (you can just barely see my band under my engagement ring):

We got ours in Germany and there it is customary that they match. I love our rings.

Ours do not match, mine is white gold with diamonds and his is yellow gold. Just personal preference.

Nope. I have a diamond wedding band and he opted for a black titanium/carbon fiber ring since it was super lightweight.

Ours won’t match in metals, but they will match in style. My e-ring is very organic and floral-inspired (with a matching w-band), and we will be getting him a band inspired by a tree trunk. My set is yellow gold, and his ring will be titanium.

@Creiddylad: Ours won’t match because mine will coordinate with my custom weddinf band, and his is from his grandmother’s late spouse. They were together over 30 years but never married. She bought him a yellow gold and onyx ring in the 80s and passed it on to my SO after Cedric died. SO decided to use it as his wedding band when we marry because he wont wear more than one ring, and the ring means more to him than some random ring he’d buy.
I originally wanted white gold, but SO said he’d like if our rings matched. That was several years ago and I’ve fallen in love with yellow gold.

Ours don’t match at all. Mine is palladium with diamonds — simple and matches my ering. His is titanium lined with Koa wood. His needed to be super durable and he is a huge nature freak so it fit his personality so much better than a plain band.

Ours will not be the same style since mine is a 5 stone ring, but they match color wise.

I am so particular that ours have to match. Our starter set might not, because I don’t know if it is going to be in the budget to get a new set for me, but we have to find something for him. It bugs him, but he agrees.
The only problem is we both prefer the look of white gold, but I am afraid I’m going to have an allergic reaction. The last 10k white gold ring I wore, my finger broke out. My e-ring is 14k and the ring I wear on my right hand is either 12k or 16k (I’m honestly don’t remember off the top of my head and the inscription is weird, because it’s black hills gold) Both yellow gold.

Ours aren’t even close to matching. I have a thinwhite gold and diamond eternity band. His ring is a much, much thicker tungsten ring. Given his job, it was important to us that the tungsten can be shattered in case of an emergency. We both have different styles but the safety factor was the ultimate deciding factor in us having mismatched rings.

Our original set matches.
I also have a second ring that my husband bought me, that goes with his, but they aren’t identical matching. Our original set has a tree with a heart and initials carved look. My second ring is a tree branch with leaves (so it still goes with his).
I want to at some point get a 5 or 6 stone ring though. I like to mix it up!

They’re from the same designer but don’t match. His is actually a triangle, mine are two rings that fit together like a puzzle.
