This is one of the common confusions that people shopping for wedding jewelry have: the difference between a bridal set and wedding set.
Difference between wedding set and bridal set
In the terminology used by jewelers, bridal set consists of the jewelry worn only by the bride i.e. the engagement
ring and its complementary wedding band, whereas the wedding set includes the wedding bands of both the bride and the groom. Now that we have that cleared, let us take a look at some factors that should be taken care ring and its complementary wedding band, whereas the wedding set includes the wedding bands of both the bride and the groom. Now that we have that cleared, let us take a look at some factors that should be taken care of before buying the bridal set.
The wedding band and the engagement ring are the two things that are going to be on your bride s hand on the wedding day and something that she would want to show everyone. It is imperative that one should not overwhelm the other or look like it is covering up the other one. If you have decided to go with a simple diamond engagement ring due to some budget constraints, don t try to cover up for that by buying a huge wedding ring or an extravagant one. You don t want either of them to overwhelm the other and also doing this would make what you are trying to cover a little too obvious.
Choice of metal
Platinum is probably the best choice of metal when it comes to the wedding band as it is something that will be worn by someone throughout their life. Platinum is the most durable noble metal and is perfect for daily wear due to this. The other metals to choose from include gold with its different colors like yellow, white, pink and even green, silver, titanium carbide , palladium etc. The engagement ring can have any of these metals as per the taste of your bride. Having a contrast between the color of metals used for the engagement ring and wedding band is something that will definitely catch the attention of any observer and what more would your bride want from you. Having a perfect combination of colors using different stones rather than just diamond would help in achieving this goal.
