    I voted they don’t have to match but there shouldn’t be a gap…. then when I scrolled down and saw your pics, I changed my mind! I think beauty is so subjective that if you love it, that is the bottom line.

    I prefer rings that are not too matchy… just my preference, and I know lots of Bees feel differently and they have beautiful matching sets. But I think there is something interesting about the non-matched look. It can be hard to pull off, but in the end you have something unique.


    I love your ring choices, and that eternity ring is to die for!

    Life has changed.

    My first time round… 30+ Years ago, matchy-matchy was all the rage.

    Now it doesn’t matter.

    IF you happen to have a e-ring that can’t be mated up with a Wedding Band (due to size, diamond projection, diamonds on the sides of the shank, etc) then it is perfectly OK to wear your Wedding Band on your Left Hand, and your Engagement Ring elsewhere… so not necessarily as “a couple”

    This is what a lot of celebs are doing with those honking big knuckle-busting mega carats that they are sporting.

    Personally, we are still ring shopping… and I am OPEN to many options.  Even thinking I might like 2 Wedding Bands similiar in size / width… one that is sparkly and one that is plain.  Can be worn together, or apart, depending on the circumstances.  As I’ve been married before, I know I am not one to take my Wedding Ring off… so nice to have a fairly plain one that can be on no matter what (sports, gardening, scuba diving, etc)
