Kate Middleton was the final proof we all needed that vintage engagement rings are in a special class of amazing. When it comes to picking a wedding band, though, how important is it to match your one-of-a-kind engagement ring? We asked our wedding experts to answer this engagement etiquette question in our daily post.

My engagement ring is a vintage piece. Do I need a vintage wedding ring to match?

There is no rule that says that if one ring is vintage, the other has to be, too. The two rings should simply complement each other. Plenty of jewelry designers, such as Tacori and Penny Preville, now sell new wedding bands with a vintage feel. Can't find one you like? Ask a jeweler to custom design a wedding ring that works with your engagement rock.
