If you are wondering what wedding bands match up with the distinctive statement made by unique oval engagement rings, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s the challenge: Oval engagement rings balance classic serenity with a bold approach. It’s quite an acrobatic feat, so you don’t want to throw them off their game or disrupt their equilibrium. Luckily enough, oval engagement rings are happy to share the spotlight with a wide array of wedding bands, as long as they are trustworthy partners. We’re happy to help you hold auditions for potential candidates.
Before we get into specific suggestions, let’s look why you might have gotten an oval engagement ring in the first place, so we can make sure that the wedding band stays on mission.
Elongation is one of an oval engagement ring’s most attractive qualities. Somehow, it tends to have an elegant slimming effect on stubbier fingers, while still managing to flatter long, slender digits. It also looks larger than it is because you get more surface area with an oval cut. Most oval cuts have a vertical, north/south orientation that runs parallel with the finger. Because of the elongating effect and the large surface area, the stone hangs over the shank of the ring on either side, rather than simply perching atop it.
Let’s think through what that might mean for a complementary wedding band.
Accommodate the Extension
You can pick a sleek and dainty wedding band that will slide easily under the overhang, especially if the band on the engagement ring itself is simple.
Check out this pairing of the Always and the Elena. The large stone remains the focal point and the lovely rose-gold bands enhance the effect without distracting from it. You know what this is like? It’s like the girl with the dramatically beautiful eyes and the subtle eye makeup.
Swerve Into the Curves
Oval engagement rings delight in curves. Don’t compete with them, but complement them. Case in point: Take that same Elena and weave in the twists and turns of the Sadie.
Match the Audacity
Sometimes the bold statement of the oval setting rests on a bold foundation of the band of the engagement ring itself. With the triple channel of the Queen, the oval setting doesn’t actually stick out that far, so no need to worry about sliding under it. Instead, the gauntlet is thrown down to match the statement with something equally bold. Maybe The Eternity!
Emphasize the Elegance
Oval settings accommodate grandeur. But they can also dabble in daintiness. Take a peek at the petite engagement ring that is the Ava. Then introduce the Promise, and watch the two mirror each other in refinement.
Get the Best of Both Worlds with a Stack
If you want to be bold but also slide under, try stacking two eternity bands next to an oval engagement ring. The Belle and the Desire have great group chemistry, but feel free to mix and match stackable wedding bands until you find the perfect fit. Sometimes the ideal wedding set is the result of some experimentation, so Modern Gents offers hassle-free exchanges.
The earth measures its years in terms of elliptical orbits around the sun, so it’s fitting that you’ve chosen an oval engagement ring as a symbol of your own celestial partnership. With quality materials and a lifetime guarantee, Modern Gents is committed to getting you a wedding band in keeping with the course you’ve already set.
