What Are Bridal Ring Sets?
Traditionally, a bridal ring set features an engagement ring with a matching wedding ring. These are often given to create the perfect fit, allowing the wearer to showcase a matching set of jewellery pieces. The set is worn together, rather than the engagement ring being replaced by the wedding ring upon marriage.
This is a popular choice for those who want to continue wearing their engagement ring, which is typically more eye-catching and extravagant than the wedding ring simply by design. This is due to the engagement ring featuring a bold gemstone, whereas the wedding ring is often a ‘band’ style, with a much more subtle design.
How Should You Wear Your Bridal Set?
There are no specific ways for you to wear your bridal set as everyone's preferences differ depending on personal style and type of ring. Some traditions state that the wedding ring would be worn under the engagement ring (near the base of your finger) as it’s closer to your heart. This isn’t gospel, though, and some choose to wear them the opposite way around due to the wedding ring being placed above the engagement ring on the wedding day.
Regardless of how you choose to style them, a bridal ring set will look stunning as they complement each other flawlessly. It’s worth considering what other styles of jewellery you’re planning to wear on your wedding day so that they match your bridal set.
