Which Metal Finish Should You Pick For Your Engagement Ring?

The metal finish of your engagement ring means more than you think!

While most people tend to focus solely on the cut of the stone, the finish of the band is just as important. Depending on your skin tone, undertones, and jewelry & clothing you wear on the daily, your engagement ring metal should be something you put a bit of thought into!

Although any finish will look beautiful on you (and really, all that matters is that you love it!), if you’re having trouble deciding, here are a few factors to consider:

  1. What jewelry do you normally gravitate towards? If your jewelry collection is full of silvers, consider getting an engagement ring to match. That way, no matter what other accessories you choose to wear that day, you can be certain that your engagement ring will go beautifully. If you find yourself a mixed bag and have all kinds of jewelry in different finishes, choose your favorite, go-to accessories and take note of what metals they are.
  1. Do you have cool or warm undertones? Undertones play a huge factor in how different metals will appear on your skin. Although we believe that anyone can wear whatever finishes they desire, you might notice that certain metals flatter your skin tone more than others. For example, warm tones may look much more flattering with rose gold jewelry, while cool tones are a silver metal’s dream match. If you’re not sure which undertones you have, take a look at the veins on your arm. Those with cool undertones will have veins that appear more blue, while veins that appear green means you have warm undertones.
  1. How do you define your personal style? Does your wardrobe revolve around classic, minimal, and elegant pieces? You may want to go for an engagement ring with a silver finish since it’s timeless and chic. On the other hand, if you love to dress up and go bold with your clothing, why not opt for something more daring like a rose gold finish? Though rose gold is still relatively tame & neutral, it can change up the look of a ring completely!

Here’s a good question: why pick just one?

Your jaw might drop at the thought of spending such exorbitant amounts of money, but hang on – did you know that many brides are choosing to opt for inexpensive and affordable engagement rings? These rings have simulated stones that look and shine like a real diamond, but are a fraction of the cost. Because of this, you don’t need to pick just one!
