You can get a lot of advice on websites such as Pinterest, and below you will also find some excellent information on how to match a modern wedding ring with a beautiful antique engagement ring.
Search For A Vintage Wedding Ring
People that own antique diamond engagement rings will often want a wedding ring that matches correctly, but with vintage and antique jewellery, it is not always possible. You may be able to find a close match to your engagement ring if you look hard enough. You need to keep in mind that at the time your ring was made, they were done by hand, meaning that no two rings were alike. As such, you can search for an antique ring and try and get as close a match as possible, but you have to accept that it is never going to be perfect.
Look For A Modern Ring
As well as scouring all of the local antique jewellery companies in your vicinity, you can also consider trying to find a modern ring that matches your antique engagement ring. Again, you are going to find it hard to get an exact match as mass-production techniques are used to make most modern jewellery, and the metals and alloys used will also be slightly different.
One way that you can make the search a little easier is by looking on the internet at jewellers who have a wide selection of engagement rings. With some time, hard work, and perseverance, you may strike it lucky and find something that is a close match and one that you will be happy to wear. If you have searched and had no luck, do not give up, as there is still one option available to you that can help you to get the perfect engagement ring.
Consider A Bespoke Hand-Made Wedding Ring
One of the easiest ways that you can get a close match to your engagement ring is to seek the services of a master jeweller who can create a custom wedding ring for you. A bespoke ring will be able to use the same purity of the metal in your engagement ring, which will help to match the overall finish. Choosing a bespoke ring is also not as expensive as many people think, and finding a quality jeweller with experience in this area can be done using the internet with ease. You can consult with them and show them the engagement ring, tell them the styles that you like and what you want, and they will create a unique design for you that will match your engagement ring precisely.
