If you rings are in the same karat count, then they will last the same time.
A proper coordination of gems, stones, and patterns on the rings is to be desires. Here are some pairings that are ideal for an engagement and wedding ring set.
If you have a ring with a string of cut gemstones arranged in a continuous line for your engagement ring, then you should pair it with a plain wedding band. A solitaire engagement ring or a three stone diamond band will match with an eternity band for a wedding ring.
There should be the same color of stones for both your engagement and wedding rings, if you both rings will have stones. Or use colored stones for your engagement ring and white stones like diamonds for your wedding ring.
A vintage wedding or engagement ring has a lot more embellishments than modern rings. They can include engravings and filigree. The engravings should be the same on both although one ring should emphasize the feature of the other.
If you have a large engagement ring, then your wedding ring should be a simple one.
