The Difference Between Engagement Rings for Sale and Wedding Bands

TrueFacet Holiday Shops Sale

As you prepare to pop the big question to “the one,” you have a lot of questions of your own. Is this the right ring? Is this an engagement ring just because it’s a diamond ring? Are engagement rings for sale the same as wedding bands? We’re here to help you answer all of your questions and put your mind at ease.

What’s the Difference Between an Engagement Ring and a Wedding Band?

An engagement ring is most often given at the proposal. A wedding band is usually exchanged at the wedding ceremony. Each person wears a wedding ring, as the official symbol of their union. Most often, only the woman wears an engagement ring but modern couples are beginning to buck this trend.

They look a little different too. Typically, engagement rings for sale feature either one dominant stone, a three-stone combination, or a cluster of stones. Wedding bands are simpler in their style. You will most often see these as a band without any large stones.

Typically, there’s a significant price difference between an engagement ring and a wedding ring. Total carat weight is likely to be significantly less in a wedding ring than an engagement ring, because of the fact that an engagement ring may have a large and costly diamond set in it.
