If you are in that phase of your life where settling down with the person you love is on the cards, then you might likely have this question in mind.

Is it okay to buy only the wedding ring or should you buy both the engagement and wedding rings Brisbane?

Many of us have been through the same phase, so don’t worry you’re not alone. We know the dilemma and are here to help you decide.

How is a Wedding Ring Different From an Engagement Ring?

The traditional engagement ring has one dominant stone, either standalone or is accompanied by smaller stones. Engagement rings are given as a part of the proposal at an early point of getting committed.

On the other hand, wedding rings aretraditionally plain metal bands or eternity rings that you exchange with your partner after reading your marriage vows.

Talking about the prices, even though wedding bands can have diamond-encrusted on them, engagement rings’ total carat is greater than wedding rings. It is because engagement rings mostly have a big diamond on them. As a result, the prices of engagement rings are usually higher than the wedding bands.

How to Wear Rings?

Traditionally, both the rings are worn together on the fourth finger of your left hand. Most people generally stack them one above the other. If both of your rings are constructed with the same metal, then stacking up will look good. However, if the rings are diverse, then many choose to wear rings on different hands. It depends on your preferences.

So, Should You Buy Both Rings?

The answer to this question lies in your personal preferences. If you are a follower of traditions, then, of course, you should buy both the rings. Building a ring stack of metal and stones would indeed look classy on your finger.

But, if you want to buy only one ring, well that’s an option too. The ring is a symbol of love and commitment from your partner; whether you wear one or both of them is just a matter of choice. Some people prefer wearing only one ring because:

  • It is comfortable and less fussy than stacking up both the bands, but both the styles look fabulous.
  • These rings are precious, not only in monetary terms but also because of their emotions. Wearing one ring would mean that there are lesser chances of losing.
  • You will not have to worry whether the design of one ring complements the other or not.
  • Finally, you will be able to save some money and allocate the funds for other things. Standout rings to signify both your engagement and marriage is also a good idea.

Final Words

Honestly, there is no definite YES or NO to answer whether you should buy both the rings or not. All that matters are your own preferences. You can wear as few or as many rings as you want, provided they are the perfect symbol of love, trust, and commitment that you have for each other.
