There are many ways to express your love and devotion to your partner, and one popular way is the tried and true tradition of wearing a set of rings. Couple rings are a special symbol of the connection and commitment between two people, and are a visible sign of love for the world to see.

For many twosomes, wearing rings together—whether they’re matching or not—is a sweet way to show off their intimacy; and for others, it’s a way to make an important promise to each other. “Whatever the occasion, the overall meaning is love and commitment," says expert Madeline Fraser, founder and CEO of Gemist. “They are a beautiful representation and extension of a couple and a true physical way to remember love as it grows.”

Regardless of the meaning behind this accessory, there are things to consider when choosing a couple ring for you and your partner. Read on to learn more below.

Couple Rings 101

While engagement rings fall into the category of couple rings, they are only one of several styles that exemplify a relationship. Promise rings are another type of ring that symbolizes the promise of marriage in the future, in addition to commitment rings which signify devotion. Lastly, there are wedding bands, representing the union of two lives becoming one, which are exchanged at the altar when a couple gets married.

Given the assortment of couple rings available, we tapped Fraser to answer a few common questions surrounding this accessory.

Do couple rings always need to match?

It seems obvious that these sets of rings should be identical, but there’s no requirement for that. In fact, Fraser tells Brides that couple rings are rarely exactly the same. “This is because everyone tends to have their own individualized style,” she says. “Think of couple rings as complements to one another rather than matching."

Are couple rings worn on a certain finger?

Engagement rings and wedding bands are traditionally worn on the ring finger of the left hand, and Fraser says that promise and commitment rings can also be worn on that finger. In the end, though, it’s up to the couple. “There are no set rules when it comes to rings that express how much you love someone else,” she shares. 

How do you choose the perfect couple ring style?

Once you decide you want to buy couple rings, the fun part begins. The key to finding rings that are right for you and your partner is choosing a style that showcases your individual personality. “With so much meaning behind these rings, get creative,” Fraser advises. “Think about the kind of styles and materials you both like.” 

Creating a custom ring is another choice that will allow you to find the best option for you and your partner. “For example, you may have totally different styles, but can agree on the same metal type,” Fraser adds. This will give you almost total control creatively and can really result in something extra special. 

However, custom rings can be pricey and can take a long time to make, so it’s not a route everyone should take. If you’d prefer to shop for something that's already on the market, we've rounded up 20 beautiful options available now. Take a look below!
