Is it essential to choose matching platinum wedding bands?


If your wedding is fast approaching, it is likely that you are soon set to visit Hatton Garden’s jewellers to find the perfect platinum wedding rings. For many customers this is the highlight of their wedding preparations – after all who wouldn’t enjoy treating themselves to a piece of fine jewellery! There really is no shortage of styles in London’s jewellery quarter meaning that you’ll have a busy morning/afternoon ahead of you! We are often asked by couples of the importance of choosing matching his and hers platinum wedding bands, and whether this should be a factor in their choice.


The concept of both husband and wife wearing matching platinum wedding rings is rather romantic. It evokes emotions of unity and togetherness and is a key factor behind a number of couples’ decision when browsing wedding rings. Generally, matching wedding rings refers to two rings crafted from the same precious metal, possessing the same profile and finish as one another. The width of the bands do usually differ (2mm/2.5mm/3mm are popular widths for ladies, and 4mm/5mm/6mm bands are most common for men).


It is important to remember that this is a piece of jewellery that you will wear for the rest of your life, and so you must have no reservations with your choice – in fact, you must love wearing your ring! This is where choosing matching platinum wedding bands can sometimes become problematic! When visiting Hatton Garden jewellers, the priority for the lady will be to find a wedding ring that compliments her engagement ring. This very often means that the styling cues come from the engagement ring itself with the aim to create a good balance between the two. But as you might expect many men’s’ tastes lean towards somewhat more simplistic styles, very often influenced by clean engineered lines. As such many customers therefore agree to select based on personal taste. You never know, you may both fall in love with the same style of ring which would be an added bonus!
