Wedding Rings: Do Our Wedding Rings Have to Match?


My husband is 6'4" and has huge hands; I'm 5'2" and have tiny hands. How can we choose matching wedding bands that will look equally good on both of us?


First of all, there's no rule that you have to wear matching wedding bands. Consider choosing two wedding bands with a family resemblance: similar shapes, details, or mix of metals. Keep in mind that a medium-width band with a herringbone pattern or openwork design will visually "lighten up" a broad hand while a diagonal design pulls the eye across the a slender hand and gives the illusion of greater width. If you're determined that you both wear the same wedding band, simply buy them in different widths. If he has big fingers, opt for a wedding ring with rounded edges, called a "comfort fit."
