How much sparkle are you looking to add?
There is many options for sparkle from how big of diamonds, how many, and what shape. Sometimes that thing that helps decide this is how much sparkle is on your engagement ring. You can decide if you want to match it or contrast it.
A little curve around your engagement ring or straight?
This one can be more of a personal preference. Do you love how the curve outlines your engagement ring or are you obsessed with the stacked look a straight ring brings?
Certain shapes of engagement rings can really influence this decision. Sometimes it’s necessary to try on a curved band to see if the curve matches and how drastic of a curve is needed to nicely frame your engagement ring.
One band, two bands, more?
Sometimes one band is all it takes to add the perfect extra detail but a new trend popping up is using multiple bands to create a unique look or creating a stack of wedding bands. Throw an engagement ring into the picture above and get a one of a kind look. And you don’t need to have your whole stack right away, many people plan to curate their stack over time, anniversary present maybe?
Here is an example of a band that looks good with just one band or you can add two and it creates a unique shape and design.
