Oval Engagement Ring With Wedding Band (2024)

There are many options for pairing an oval diamond engagement ring with a wedding band. There’s rounded classic polished bands, flat bands, full eternity diamond pavé bands, twisted bands, different textures, chevrons, curved bands.

Ultimately, your perfect match is entirely dependent on your personal taste and how you want to curate a cohesive bridal set.

Tips to match your oval engagement ring with a wedding band

Ovals are a little different, but don’t stray too far from tradition. Due to their elongated silhouette, they can look almost 10% larger than round stones of the same carat weight and don’t carry the same price premium. Here are some factors to consider and a range of options to help you choose the best wedding band to complement your oval diamond or gemstone engagement ring:

Curved Bands

When you think of a wedding ring, you may think of the classic straight polished band. However, many engagement rings aren’t designed for a straight band to sit perfectly flush next to them.

Instead, opt for a curved, contoured wedding band that is specifically designed to fit snugly against the curves of the oval centre stone. This allows your wedding ring to sit flush against your engagement ring as a perfect match.

Chevron Bands

If you’re not looking for a perfectly flush look, consider a chevron or ‘V’ shaped band–also sometimes known as a wishbone band. As their name suggests, these bands go one step further than a curved design and have an inverted V shape where two strands of metal meet at a point.

While these often don’t sit exactly flush against engagement ring designs, no matter the stone shape, they’re a contemporary take on a classic, perfect to be worn stacked against your most sentimental jewellery.

Still classic, with a touch of brilliance, consider a wedding band that features channel or pavé-set diamonds or gemstones. These bands add an extra dynamic to your ring set and provide the perfect juxtaposition between metal and gemstone.

Mixed Metal Bands

Consider a mixed metal wedding band to create a modern and eye-catching contrast.

The juxtaposition of the contrasting metal tones results in a visually interesting and versatile bridal set.

Match oval engagement rings with wedding bands by colour

Matching wedding bands to engagement rings is often primarily led by the metal of the engagement ring.

Gone are the days of uniformity–mixing and matching is here to stay. Be it tableware, fabric patterns or metal tones–wearing clashing metal tones is the perfect way to express your personal style.

However, yellow gold has since made a mighty return with around a third of the rings we create being crafted in this glorious metal.

The combination of the oval-shaped centre stone and the warm hue of yellow gold creates a pretty iconic look–it’s almost exactly what you imagine when you think of an engagement ring. Whether you opt for a simple and understated design or one adorned with intricacies and fine details, a yellow gold oval engagement ring or wedding band will always look enchanting.

White gold oval engagement rings and wedding bands

The bright and lustrous appearance of white gold beautifully complements the elegance of an oval-shaped diamond engagement ring. When committing to a white gold engagement ring and white gold wedding band stack, consider designs with sculptural forms and clean lines to strike a harmonious balance between modernity and tradition.

The combination of white gold and the oval shape does create a stunning contrast and captures a sense of sophistication. While white gold results in a very similar look to platinum, we’d always recommend choosing platinum instead of white gold, unless you have a strong preference.

The reason for this is because white gold requires life-long maintenance. Every two to three years, white gold needs to be replated with rhodium which costs around £100. Over a lifetime, this can add up to be more than you’d have originally saved by choosing white gold over platinum. Conversely, platinum requires no long-term maintenance–a simple clean and buff every once in a while will keep it looking good as new provided it’s well taken care of.
