Did you purchase your wedding rings from the same store as the engagement ring?

    Yes, my e-ring and wedding ring and my husband's wedding ring are all from the same jeweler.

    Yes, my e-ring and wedding band are from the same store. My husband's is from a different store.

    No, the engagement ring and wedding bands were purchased at separate jewelers.

    Other- please explain in comments.

    My engagement ring and wedding band were made by the same jeweler.  We went to see about getting my husbands ring from them but it was going to be more than we wanted to spend.  We ended up getting the same thing from Blue Nile for half.

    My rings are made by the same jeweler, but mainly because it was simpler and we shopped for both my e-ring and wedding band at the same time.

    His ring is from another jeweler and is yellow gold while mine’s white gold. His is an heirloom from his granfather that he had remade/reinforced by a jeweler. Matching rings is nice, but it’s definitely not necessary. It’s way more important in my opinion that you both have rings you love.

    Definitely not. My engagement ring came from quite an expensive jeweller and we won’t be going there for wedding bands.

    My wedding band was actually my grandfather’s wedding band and I wear it occasionally already on my right hand, but we’ll need to get it resized before the wedding.

    For FI’s wedding band we might get custom made. It will be a plain gold band but might have a couple of customisations to it. We haven’t decided where to go for his ring yet but it won’t be where we got my engagement ring.

    Shop around for sure – bargain. 

    My ering is antique. We bought our wedding bands in nyc when on holiday from the uk. We took cash and haggled. Paid about half what we’d have paid in the uk.

    You should get a platinum band to match your e-ring. As they will presumably be worn at the same time on the same finger, the harder metal will wear down the softer one over time and damage it. If your e-ring was gold, you should get the same purity for the wedding ring.

    My e-ring is 18ct gold so my wedding band will be too. Fi wants something more hard-wearing but gold so will likely get 9ct.

    My wedding band was his great grandmothers. We got his off Amazon. They are both plain gold.

    My white gold ering and matching band both came from James Allen, but I’ve purchased a rose gold stacking band elsewhere and also have my eye on another yellow gold band from etsy.   I want a mix and match stack!   We are still searching for a band for my Fiance. He didn’t care for any of the options available from James Allen so that will be purchased from a different source.

    All three rings are from different stores.

    Ours are all from the same shop. I looked around but really wanted to get the matching band to my e-ring. Also, we live in a small place so not that many options in town! I like the idea of being able to go in store for check ups, or if any issues should come up, so didn’t want to look too far away.

    Both of my rings came from Blue Nile.  My wedding ring was relatively inexpensive and was on sale at the time I purchased it.  DH’s ring came from David Yurman.

    Both my engagement ring and wedding ring are from Brilliant Earth! My fiancé loved his experience with the engagement ring and they opened a showroom where we live, so we went to try on wedding bands there. I fell in love with a gorgeous one and that was that! Didn’t need to look around anywhere else.

    My e-ring in platinum and my wedding band is yellow gold; we got them from the same jeweller, as both were custom made for me. DH’s wedding band is also yellow gold; it was his late father’s so we’re not actually sure where it came from originally but definitely not the same store. I didn’t pick yellow gold for myself to match DH’s – I actually wanted platinum/white gold originally, but I have very thin fingers and the whole set just looked too chunky for my liking. Yellow or rose gold looked for less chunky, but I ultimately went with yellow because I don’t own any rose gold jewellery.

    Our rings are from the same jeweler. Our bands are matching. Though we each encouraged the other to get a blingy wedding band, we both wanted something simple.
