Maybe you’re a bride or groom-to-be looking for matching engagement and wedding ring sets? Or perhaps you’re a couple searching for the perfect curved wedding band to compliment an engagement ring you already own? Whatever brought you here, I hope you’ll take away ideas that help and inspire you.
WHAT IS A CURVED WEDDING BAND?
A curved wedding band, sometimes called a shaped wedding band or contoured ring, is a wedding ring shaped to fit seamlessly beside another ring, usually an engagement or eternity ring.
A traditional wedding band is usually the same width and thickness the whole way around, but engagement rings often curve and narrow around precious stones. A curved wedding band is shaped to fit the unique contours of your engagement ring so that the two rings can be worn together on one finger.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT FOR MY WEDDING & ENGAGEMENT RINGS TO MATCH?
When we begin looking at wedding jewellery, we are often drawn to particular materials and styles: yellow gold and diamonds say, or white gold and emeralds. We are likely to choose a wedding band that matches or compliments our engagement ring aesthetically, by choosing the same materials or style for both.
What we often don’t consider, is the practicality of wearing two rings side-by-side. If the metal of one ring is harder than the other, over time it may wear the softer material down. If one (or both) of the rings has a large stone, like a solitaire ring, or several graduating stones, these may cause the ring to widen and thin, causing it to sit uncomfortably beside its neighbour. The rings will touch at their widest points but leave gaps where they narrow, causing them to shift about, eventually damaging your jewellery and irritating you.
Designing a curved wedding band especially for your engagement ring removes these problems and gives a beautiful effect that feels comfortable and looks balanced.
