My husband’s and my ring don’t match exactly, but they match in terms of colour appearance. Mine’s platinum, which matches my e-ring. To get a platinum man’s ring would’ve been dearer because obviously they’re chunkier, I can’t recall the metal of his. It doesn’t matter as the ring is individual to the wearer.

Ours match in colour terms (although I didn’t feel it was important) but style-wise they’re VERY different. His is chunky and modern (it’s a concave palladium ring) and mine is very delicate and diamond-set.

They don’t have to match. I prefer white gold and he already has an antique gold ring so while we are going to look for a similar style they will definetly be different colors.

My husband to be has a Tungsten band and I have a white gold band so no they dont have to match that is your decision.

Not at all. At first I wanted our wedding bands to be all matchy matchy, but he was drawn to a band that didn’t have a corresponding women’s style. So in the end we just got what we wanted.

They definitely don’t have to match. What’s important is that you both have rings you love and want to wear forever!
Fiance and I planned to have mismatched rings: I wanted white gold to match my e-ring and he wanted tungsten carbide. In the end, we both wound up with white gold because he found a ring he really loved more than any of the tungsten ones he’d been looking at.

Traditionally they do, but we all know traditional isn’t always best! Feel free to choose what you like – you guys have to wear them, after all.
