How To Choose A Matching Wedding Band


Three Basic Types of Matching Wedding Bands

Choosing the perfect matching wedding band can be a daunting task, especially for the groom who may be a bit clueless. It really is a simple task once you have the basic terminology explained so it all makes sense. There are some basic types to choose from, and then a multitude of options from there.  The three main types are called flush fit bands, straight fit bands and shadow wedding bands or contoured wedding bands.

Flush Fit Matching Wedding Band

A flush fit band refers to a flat matching band that will sit up flush against the solitaire or main engagement ring.  For this type of wedding band, the engagement ring must be designed to accommodate the band with enough space below the head or prongs of the center diamond. Usually, these are sold as a matching set as they are cast together and crafted for a perfect fit together. As an example, Ziamond offers the Britney Cushion Cut Wedding Set that features a perfect flush fit style band along with the solitaire.  The band of the Britney bridal set (shown above) is specially made to fit flat against the shank of the engagement ring and to fit just below the underside of the center stone. The prongs of the center stone will not interfere with the flush fit of the wedding band, creating a nice tight configuration with a fitted look. This Britney Bridal Set is offered in a variety of center stone carat sizes as well as metals like 14k gold, 18k gold or Platinum,.
