What is a Wedding Set?

A wedding set is otherwise known as a bridal set, which refers to a set of rings for a bride, consisting of an engagement ring and a wedding ring. These two rings will be made with very similar designs, metals, settings, and gemstones to achieve the look as a set. Bridal sets are typically cheaper than purchasing the engagement and wedding rings separately.

What to Consider When Buying a Wedding Set?

When buying a wedding set, you should consider many different things. The list below outlines some key things to consider:

  • Engagement Ring and Wedding Band Style
  • Gemstone
  • Metal
  • Settings
  1. Engagement Ring and Wedding Ring Style

    The style of your bridal set is the most important consideration when purchasing a wedding set. There are many engagement ring styles like solitaire, halo, three stone, vintage and many more. Engagement rings are more customisable than wedding rings. Hence, most choose to select their engagement ring first, and then get a matching wedding band to their engagement ring. However, you can always choose the design of your wedding ring first, if you’d like an eternity, gemstone, diamond, or all metal wedding ring.

  2. Gemstones

    When buying a wedding set, the gemstones or diamonds are one of the most important considerations for your set. The type of gemstone you choose for your bridal set is crucial, whether you want a diamond, sapphire, ruby, or other gemstones. After choosing a stone, it’s important to look at the 4 C’s: Cut, Colour, Clarity, and Carat weight. The sizes of the diamonds and/or gemstones, whether it’s 0.5 carat, 0.75 carat, 1 carat, 1.5 carat, or 2 carat, should fit your budget and preference for centre stone size and quality. The shapes of your centre stones, such as Round, Oval, Cushion, Emerald, and Marquise cut, also affect the overall design of your bridal style.

  3. Metal

    Platinum and gold are the two main metal choices for those interested in wedding sets. Platinum has a beautiful silver colour and is very durable. Gold comes in 9k, 14k, and 18k gold for engagement rings and wedding rings, along with white, yellow, and rose gold colours. Consider the metal type you like along with the different colours, and the durability of the metal or its karat when choosing a metal for your wedding set.

  4. Settings

    There are three main setting options for engagement rings. Firstly, prong settings are the most popular setting for wedding sets, with 4, 6, and 8 prong variations being the most common amount of prongs used for engagement rings. Tension settings are another option when choosing a setting for Channel, and are very unique, but only certain shapes can be set in a tension setting. Bezel settings also come in full bezel and half bezel alternatives; bezel options are the safest option, and are a great choice for those who are clumsy and prone to damaging their ring. Wedding rings have two main options in terms of settings. There are two main types of side stones used for wedding rings: Channel set side stones are smaller diamonds or gemstones set into a channel on the band of the ring. This side stone setting places diamonds into a groove or channel where the metal on the band of the ring on each side keeps the smaller stones in place. Pavé set side stones are smaller gemstones set into a band typically held in place by smaller prongs or beads, giving the appearance of stones closely set together in a paved design. Micro pavé, french pavé, u-cut pavé, petite pavé, and bright cut pavé are the different types of pavé settings. The perfect settings for a wedding set come down to your preference, and weighing up the benefits of the different settings for engagement and wedding rings.

Why Should I Buy a Wedding Set?

Selecting a wedding set provides cost efficiency and ensures a seamless appearance. Yet, it requires a larger upfront investment and limits styling options for the engagement ring. Additionally, design flexibility may be restricted by the centre stone. Deciding on a set involves balancing these factors according to personal preferences and financial considerations.

What are the Pros of Buying a Wedding Set?

There are three main pros of buying a wedding set:

  • Cost Effective

    Choosing a wedding set is more cost-effective than purchasing both the engagement ring and wedding band separately. This means that couples can achieve a coordinated and cohesive look without breaking the bank, making it a practical and budget-friendly option for many.

  • Ensures that the Wedding and Engagement Ring Sit Flush

    Choosing a wedding set ensures the wedding band is designed to complement the engagement ring perfectly. This ensures both rings sit flush against each other on the finger. This creates a seamless and coordinated appearance, enhancing the overall aesthetic appeal and comfort for the wearer. It eliminates the hassle of trying to find a matching band later, ensuring a cohesive and harmonious look from the start.

  • Time Efficient

    Selecting a wedding set saves time because it eliminates the need to search for a matching wedding band separately after purchasing the engagement ring. Couples can streamline the process by choosing a set already including both rings, saving valuable time and effort. This makes the wedding planning process more efficient and less stressful, allowing couples to focus on other aspects of their special day.

What are the Cons of Buying a Wedding Set?

There are some potential cons to consider when buying a wedding set:

  • Larger Sum Up Front

    Purchasing a wedding set requires a larger initial investment as you're buying both the engagement ring and wedding band together. This can pose a challenge for those who are operating with very tight budgets.

  • Fewer Ways to Style Your Engagement Ring

    A wedding set typically comes with a matching wedding band designed to complement the engagement ring. While this ensures a coordinated look, it may limit the variety of ways you can style your engagement ring. Some may prefer the flexibility of mixing and matching different bands to achieve unique looks for different occasions.

  • Dependent upon the Centre Stone

    The design of the wedding ring in a wedding set is often coordinated with the centre stone of the engagement ring. This means that if you want to change or upgrade the centre stone in the future, it could pose challenges in finding a matching wedding band that complements the new stone's size, shape, or setting.

How Much Does a Wedding Set Cost?

A wedding set at DG & Co. Jewellery costs between $2,350 and $5,685 for the wedding set without the engagement ring's centre stone alone. When choosing a diamond or gemstone centre stone, this can significantly increase the cost, especially for a large high-quality diamond or precious gemstone. The average wedding set costs around $8,000 to $12,000.

What are the Most Popular Wedding Sets?

The best wedding sets ultimately depend on each person's preferences, but our most popular designs are listed below:

What If I don't like my bridal set?

If you don't like your engagement or wedding ring you're able to modify either of the rings to your own preferences. You can choose to customise either of the rings, adjusting them in style, metal type, setting, embellishments, thickness, gemstones and any other element of your wedding set. You can also choose other ready made designs, if you prefer them over customising your wedding band or engagement ring. It's important to consider your rings stability, and design when choosing it for your bridal set.

Can I change my wedding band inside of my wedding set?
