Your engagement ring and wedding band should complement one another without feeling too matchy-matchy. Here are ten pairings we think work well together and tips for picking your own unique combination.

Your Engagement Ring: Simple Solitaire

A solitaire engagement ring—whether the cut is princess, round, or emerald—is the most versatile style to match. While your bauble will look lovely alongside nearly any wedding band, we recommend pairing a simple solitaire with a thin pavé diamond band for an extra dose of sparkle.
