I never even thought about them matching, until I showed my Bridesmaid or Best Man my set and she said…”how will [Fiance] find a ring to match that?”
Mine is only 2mm wide with micropave diamonds in platinum and it’s the matching band to my e-ring. There’s no way that could ever look proper on a guy’s hand. Even if it were a wider version, he would never want it. Plus he would surely bust out the diamonds on a daily basis with his rough self. We were thinking just a plain platinum band for him. At least they would be made of the same metal…..??
Oh well, too late to match now… anyone else not matching?

We aren’t matching mine is channel set diamonds in white gold and his is tungsten with a black carbon fiber ring.
I don’t think they have to match and I want him to love his ring. It doesn’t mean less when they dont match.

ours are similar, but that’s just because our religion states that you need a plain, gold band. mine’s smaller than his, and curved, while his is flat. but i don’t think they need to match, usually girls like diamonds and boys aren’t really into that.

I thought ours would match, but then decided I wanted diamonds on mine. He wouldn’t even hear of having any diamonds on his. So they won’t match at all, besides both being platinum.

We didn’t worry about our rings matching. He has tungsten and I have white gold. My ring is flat and his is contour. I wanted something that worked with my e-ring more than I wanted something that looked like his ring. I think you can do whatever you want!

We’re not planning to match at all. I will probably get a platinum pave band to match my e-ring setting. Fiance doesn’t want us to spend the money for platinum so we’ll probably get him a white gold and diamond bland (he wants a little bling too!)

I dont think they have to match. We have the same metal for our bands but thats it. His is thick and heavy with no jewels on it while mine is thin and has diamonds halfway around it.

Ours don’t match at all – Our metals aren’t even the same! Mine is white gold with 7 prong set diamonds and his is Tungsten Carbide. They are both very much our personalities!

Ours are the same design–mine is narrower and platinum (to match my e-ring) and his is white gold, but they’re both milgrain and they look like a matched set.

We aren’t getting matching rings. He wants tungsten and I want white gold with diamonds. I know couples that have matching bands and those that don’t. It doesn’t matter to me but I know it bothes some people.

My fiance wants yellow gold and I have a white gold engagement ring, so I’ll be getting a white gold band. At first that upset me a little but then I realized we should both just have what we want, and he doesn’t like the idea of a white gold band for him.

My parents have matching bands (although my mom’s is white gold and dad’s is yellow gold). Of course my mom has man hands (literally), so wearing the same ring as my dad totally works for her. I never thought much about it until Fiance and I got engaged, but we will definitely NOT be doing matching rings. We are each picking the one that we like best for ourselves 🙂

I thought it would be nice if ours matched, but my e-ring is white gold and he liked a tri-color gold band… I looked for a yellow or rose gold band that I liked to keep them in the same color scheme, but didn’t find one… so they won’t match. 🙂

I think the tradition of buying matching rings went out the door a long time ago…..you and your mates taste in rings may be different….you may want bling and he may want simple.
