The difference between engagement rings and wedding bands
There are many times that we are asked about the difference between an engagement ring and a wedding ring. Very often, people mix the meaning of both types of rings. It is normal and happens to us frequently.
Knowing the differences between the two is very useful and above all very relevant. Engagement rings or wedding bands are a symbol of a very special and important event for you. Having everything clear and with as much information as possible is vitally important for that special day. Thus, you will ensure that everything turns out perfect!
Commitment or engagement ring
The commitment ring is also known as an engagement ring. Traditionally, these types of rings serve the primary function of symbolizing the couple’s commitment to marry. The reason for being known also as an engagement ring is because tradition has it that when the couple wants to formalize their engagement, it is usually done through a request for a hand. In the request of hand, which is usually organized in the bride’s house, the groom gives the engagement ring or engagement ring to the bride.
How does it look
The engagement ring is certainly more special in design. Tradition has it that it is a white gold ring with a diamond or with a brilliant. But in practice, this type of ring has evolved over the years. We can see them made in many materials, types of stones and prices. It all depends on the taste and style of each one. In any case, these rings are so special that they are not normally worn on a daily basis. But usually only on very special occasions.
If you are looking for a good design under the best quality standards, you have a lot of brands with their unique collections. You can choose which one best suits what you were looking for and the budget you had in mind.

If your partner is more daring and original, we have other ring designs made with zircons that can also be ideal for their shine and color.
Wedding bands or marriage rings
As with engagement rings, the wedding ring is also known by other names. Thus, you can hear it as a marriage ring or wedding band. It is the one that the bride and groom give themselves in the ceremony and fulfills the main function of symbolizing the marriage between the bride and groom.
Wedding rings are traditional of a simpler and soberer cut. They are normally half-round and smooth finish. It should not be forgotten that wedding bands, once married, it is normal to always wear them on your finger. Hence, they are more simple and sober, so that you can also carry them comfortably in your day to day.
