Wedding Ring Guide

Women's Wedding Rings

It is traditional to wear her wedding ring closest to the heart, and wear the engagement ring on the same finger, over the wedding ring. If you choose this tradition, consider how the rings will fit together.

A Perfect Match

Some rings are designed to fit together, side-by-side. Many women like the symmetry of two matching rings, with diamonds of the same size and shape, or just the same type of metal.    

A Unique Combination

She may choose a ring other than the one designed to match her engagement ring. This creates a unique look that is becoming popular. To explore all the options, view all of our plain and diamond wedding rings.

Choosing Her Engagement Ring

Choose a Setting Style

SalmaJewelry offers a wide variety of engagement settings. For help in choosing, here's a summary of the three main styles.

Solitaire Settings

This is our most popular engagement ring setting. The prongs position the center diamond to catch the most light. A four-prong setting shows a bit more diamond, while a six-prong setting offers a slight security advantage. View our solitaire settings.

Settings with Sidestones

A setting with diamonds or gemstones adds additional sparkle or color. Channel settings protect sidestones from abrasions by keeping them flush. The bar-channel setting allows more light to enter the sidestones, and creates a scalloped edge of brilliance. View our settings with sidestones.

Three-Stone Settings

For a classic ring that's truly unique and created by you, choose all three diamonds to be set in a three-stone setting. The three-stone ring has one diamond for the past, one for the present, and one for the future. You can follow four simple steps to customize a three-stone ring.

How do you choose a ring she'll love without her knowing?

How do you know if she'll like the ring if she doesn't pick it out? If you consider her tastes and lifestyle, you'll be sure to make the right choice.

1.Take a good look at the color of jewelry your partner wears. What color is the metal?

2.Ask her friends or mother if she has mentioned a preference for a particular type or style of ring.

3.Is she very active or not used to wearing jewelry? If so, consider a cathedral or contour setting, which will protect a diamond from rough treatment.

Engagements are rarely an out-of-the-blue surprise, so it is common to discuss engagement ring choices with your partner. The only way to ensure you find a ring that will match her taste and style is to shop for a ring together. Whether you're shopping together or not, start by finding her ring size.
