Selecting a wedding ring to signify your love, adoration, and personal style for all eternity is a tricky decision, especially when the band you fancy doesn't perfectly match your engagement ring. Is it acceptable to don mismatched metals on your ring finger? Our expert gives you the lowdown on the most important piece of jewelry your hand will ever sport.

You're in luck, as rose gold is a major trend for 2015 thanks to its flattering hue and ability to harmonize with most colors in the rainbow spectrum. Old-fashioned rules no longer apply when it comes to selecting your wedding band, and with the plethora of distinct choices on the market, a distinctive ring can be your way of demonstrating your unique bridal style.

In addition, there is a big difference between an eclectically paired engagement ring and wedding band, and a finger stacked with clashing ornaments. As long as you find some way to unite the two pieces aesthetically, your rose gold visions can be realized. For instance, if your engagement ring features a cushion cut stone with a band covered in pavé diamonds, try a rose gold wedding band that features pacé diamonds to mirror the look. Mixing metals is a modern and fashion-forward way to express your sense of style, so mismatch away!
