Our designs don’t match and we didn’t get the same metal, but they look like the same color! I got a white gold ring that matches the infinity band on my ering and DH chose a plain Cobalt Chrome ring. I like matching sets, but DH wanted something plain and I didn’t We do have matching silicone bands to use when we go swimming or do some other activity where we wouldn’t want to use our rings, though!

I don’t think your rings have to match! But I’m a little biased, because my ring is white gold, and fiance’s will be yellow gold. But yellow gold suits him and his old-fashioned personality much better, while white gold is much more suited to my taste. But I love that we’re going with a different color for him! I want him to look down at his ring and think nothing but happy thoughts about it, and me (lol)! 🙂

We haven’t chosen his band yet, but since mine is a Black Hills Gold set and he likes it, he’s planning on getting a BHG band also so we’ll both have the three colors. Right now we have one earmarked, but we’re going to see if any new ones come out over the next year that he likes better. He was in shock when I first showed their men’s rings to him – he’d been under the impression that it was going to be a plain band of some metal or another and hadn’t seen any fun funky bands for men. So we’ll have the same general style and colors, but his probably won’t be rose shaped.

Nope. My set is platinum, but I actually wanted my DH to wear a yellow gold band (as I love the look on a man), but he wanted white metal… whatev, it’s his ring! 🙂

Not at all! He has a dark gray, fairly thick (6mm) beveled tungsten band, and mine is a 2mm thin white gold half eternity band.

Thank you for your input, everyone. There doesn’t seem to be a mandate on having matching rings, which is a relief. I would feel so much better about him having a ring that is exactly what he wants. Now, to convince him that he doesn’t have to match me…

My engagement ring is white gold, DH got a two tone white & yellow gold band that he really likes, and I got a yellow gold eternity band. So, sort of (:

Mine is 3mm 18ct gold
His is 5mm 14ct gold

my fiance and I are using rings that once belonged to our grandparents. Mine is a tiny white gold band and his is a thicker, yellow gold. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

We definitely don’t! Mine is white gold with diamonds and his is black tungsten. Both are very “us” and certainly don’t make us any less married. It’s not like if the husband gets lost that they look for the wife with a similar wedding band to reunite them or something. 😂

We aren’t married yet but we did go and look at bands recently. We actually both like the same style band, so ours will probably end up matching at least in style but have different widths.
Mine will be in yellow gold and FI’s will either be in yellow or white gold (he’s not sure which to go with yet).
I will probably also be getting an extra band with diamonds, since I really want both a plain band and a diamond band.
In general I don’t think you have to match. It’s cute when you do, but you really don’t have to. I think it’s far more important, that the band you wear actually suits your finger and reflects your personal style.

The styles are 100% different.
But he wanted platinum, and I have rose gold, so his has rose gold on the inside, so we know they match but no one else does. <3

not at all but not exactly for the reason listed he designed my engagement ring and wedding band as a set that he designed and used his grandmothers ring melted down, it was a total surprise not at all what i was expecting (tbh at first i had mixed feelings about it) so i get to secretively choose his and he wont see it til closer to the wedding if not at it. Iv chosen one that incorperates wood from a jack daniels barrel

I’d say ours are pretty opposite in style, but match our personalities well. I have a rose gold halo morganite. Considered getting him a rose gold band, but didn’t think it suited him. He has a black with some brushed silver edges.

No our wedding bands aren’t going to match. My wedding band will match my engagement ring.
