His and Hers Wedding Bands
You can choose matching bands, complimentary bands or go completely different.
One of the choices in South Africa today is a matched set — one band for her (and her engagement ring) and one for him. These matched wedding sets are a symbol that you and your spouse have become one, show that you have similar tastes and indicate that you value certain traditions.
However, many couples take the non-traditional route today and choose different wedding bands.
When you choose non-matching wedding bands you can each express your individuality, avoid one partner feeling pressured to choose a matching band he or she doesn’t love and you can choose a ring that best complements your skin tone and hand shape and size, and reflects your personal style.
Just like wedding cakes and honeymoon destinations, different couples like different things. When it comes to wedding bands, it’s important both of you love the band you’ll wear every day for a lifetime, whether or not it’s part of a matched set.
We offer custom made bands where you and your fiancé can design a matched set you both love because you created it yourselves.
In the end, only you can decide what wedding band will make you happy, and only your fiancé can make the decision for him or her. It’s up to each of you to celebrate the other’s view — whether it’s the same or different.
