There are countless ways to show your love and affection to your partner. In the earlier stages of a relationship, that affection can be displayed through smaller things like thoughtful gifts and date nights. Later on, once the bond has grown, that love could be shown through dream vacations or anything else that you think will mean a lot to your partner. But eventually, it will be time to make that big decision that will change your life forever—marriage. When that time does come, you'll not only be faced with the choice of who you want to spend your life with but also what wedding ring sets you'll want to act as that symbol of your love throughout your lifetime and beyond.
Cultures throughout the world and throughout time have all found different approaches to the use of rings during the wedding ceremony and to all that comes afterward. But the use of rings themselves as a symbol of dedicated love has been ubiquitous for centuries and centuries. And, in today's modern understanding and approach to marriage, the use of both an engagement ring and a wedding ring—or wedding ring sets matching the two together—is part of that long-standing tradition of love. That's why, if you're planning on asking the big question anytime soon, you need to check out our amazing wedding ring sets here at Black Diamonds New York!

But before you click away to browse our fantastic selection of wedding ring sets here at Black Diamonds New York, we'd like to use this blog to make that case as to why you should consider a wedding ring set over picking out your engagement and wedding rings separately. So, let's start with the basics.
What Are Wedding Ring Sets?
Wedding ring sets are the pairing of both the ring for your initial proposal and the ring presented on your actual wedding day and worn thereafter. The engagement ring typically acts as the bold statement-piece ring that is adorned with a beautiful, large diamond center stone. Meanwhile, the wedding ring (or wedding band) is usually simpler, tamer, and easier to wear day-to-day during your usual activities. However, just because they serve different purposes and their styles may differ, that doesn't mean that they shouldn't be able to perfectly match each other in other ways.
Why Match Your Engagement and Wedding Rings?
Many people only wear either their wedding ring or engagement ring at any given time—not simultaneously, let alone on the same finger. And if that's how you intend to approach your marital jewelry, then Black Diamonds New York also has plenty of options for you to ponder and pick out. However, many people also like to wear both rings together, as they oftentimes perfectly complement one another.
In many traditions, in fact, they are supposed to be worn together, as completing the set of rings symbolizes the completion of the marriage ceremony and the future together thereafter. However, it can also simply be a style and aesthetic preference! At the end of the day, it's up to you to make that decision for yourself, and if you decide that you'd like your rings to match, then Black Diamonds New York has the wedding ring sets for you!
The Many Benefits of Wedding Ring Sets
There are countless reasons why you might want to consider looking through the wedding ring sets that we have here at Black Diamonds New York if matching rings weren't already in your plan. Let's start with one we've already touched on—style!
The most important aspect of deciding to go with a wedding ring set is always style. By choosing a pair of rings that were expertly designed to complement one another, they'll always look good together whenever, wherever, and with whatever outfit you choose! It will also ensure that neither your wedding ring nor your engagement ring is left to collect dust if they don't match your go-to style.
We all know how difficult it can be to find rings that fit our fingers just right. It can also reduce the enjoyment of wearing your stunning rings if they're constantly too loose or too tight on your finger. Buying your engagement and wedding rings separately can make you especially prone to this discomfort since you may not be able to accurately validate the sizing between two rings that weren't designed to be worn together. But with wedding ring sets, this can easily be a non-issue!
Similarly to the point above, choosing a wedding ring set ensures that both rings are of the same standard of quality. Not only will they both be made from the same metals and diamonds, but they'll also be designed by the same expert jewelers, which ensures complete consistency in all aspects of their wedding ring sets.
As you can imagine, buying two rings together can likely get you some pretty sweet savings. This is thanks to the fact that you'll be buying both from the same shop—Black Diamonds New York—and in the same transaction, meaning you won't have to worry about price fluctuations between buying rings or extra taxes incurred by needing a whole other transaction! Plus, we're always happy to offer countless discounted rates, so when you're looking for wedding ring sets, we're your best bet!
All in all, it's simply less work. By buying your rings together as wedding ring sets, you'll only have to worry about going through the (occasionally stressful) ring-buying process once! So why put yourself through the hassle of buying your engagement and wedding rings separately when you could reap all the rewards above buying checking out our wedding ring sets here at Black Diamonds New York?
Picking the Right Wedding Ring Sets for You
Now that you're well convinced to check out our wedding ring sets, you may want some help figuring out how to pick the best wedding ring sets for your partner. We can help with that too!
Here are the most important aspects to consider before making your final decision on a stunning engagement and wedding ring duo!
Before you even consider the aesthetic style and color, you'll need to decide on its physical complexity. Do you want a simple set of rings, each with a small but eye-catching diamond center stone? Or maybe you'd prefer two complex rings that interweave gold and diamond-like a true work of art. Perhaps even a combination of both? Whatever it is that you decide on, be sure it's something you'll love to wear, no matter the circumstances!
More so than finding the perfect ring for your partner's ring size, you'll also need to consider the size of the stones themselves. If you want a single, large diamond to adorn your engagement ring, then you could consider evening it out with a more understated wedding band that instead hosts a series of small but equally stunning GIA-certified diamonds—or vice versa.
It's also important to keep in mind that larger diamonds are more prone to damage and will need some extra care and attention to keep them in good condition. Plus, large stones may not always be the right look for every outfit you put together. But whatever you choose, find a size that works right for your tastes.
Once you're confident in your choice of complexity and size, you can start to dig into the style of your wedding ring sets. There are countless options available for you to choose from when it comes to finding the wedding ring set that would make you happiest. The bands themselves can come in silver or yellow gold, as well as silver and a select few other materials. They can also come in a variety of simple designs, from traditional and flat cuts to edged and slight cuts—as well as more intricate styles like interweaving bands and a mix of metals.
And the diamonds that will crown your ring are no less unique.
Diamonds can be cut into a variety of creative and unique shapes. The most common cuts for diamond shapes are:
- Halo Cut
- Pear Cut
- Cushion Cut
- Emerald Cut
- Oval Cut
Though those are the most common, they aren't the only types of diamond shapes available. Our wedding ring sets here are available in each of those cuts and many others, including kite cuts and hexagonal cuts, as well as more eccentric cuts such as heart cuts and even clover cuts!
Take, for example, one of our best-selling wedding ring sets: the 3.2 Carat Cushion Cut and Halo Cut Wedding Ring Set. This set of rings features high-quality 925 sterling silver metal with a white gold finish and is embedded with both cushion- and halo-cut diamonds. Moreover, the wedding band displays a stunning loop of perfect round-cut stones. Go ahead and check it out here!
Though traditional clear or transparent diamonds are the most popular option by far and are the go-to look when you think about diamond wedding ring sets, there are a variety of other colors you can choose from if you feel like proudly owning a diamond ring that breaks away from the norm!
Here at Black Diamonds New York, we have everything from traditional clear and pink diamonds to namesake black diamonds. Plus, we also break from the traditional gold or silver gold styles by also offering beautiful rose gold options! And though we don't offer them in any of our wedding ring sets, we also have tastefully edgy rings that feature solid 14k gold and silver that are coated in an alluring black rhodium plating.
As another example of our wedding ring sets, take a look at our gorgeous Rose Gold Peachy Pink Pear-Cut Ring Set! Topped with an amazing, certified Moissanite center stone that was expertly pear-cut, the main ring weighs in at 2.20 Carat and sits comfortably atop a top-of-the-line sterling silver band that boasts a lovely rose gold plating. You can learn more about this ring right here—it's sure to impress you even further!
Finally, it's time to talk about pricing. Of course, you can never put a price tag on love—but thankfully, rings are just a representation of it! When browsing our wedding ring sets, always keep your budget in mind and have a clear idea of what your upper and lower limits are in terms of flexibility. This will ensure that you get a diamond ring set that satisfies both you and your partner without breaking the bank or feeling like you didn't spend enough on it.
