does it really matter if your engagement ring and wedding ring are the same carat? ive been told different things by different people.
ive seen a wedding ring in 9ct white gold but my engagement ring is 18ct will this matter?
ah phew! can save myself £120 then every penny counts lol - and thats alot of pennies!
i'm not bothered what carats they are and like you say honeybee no one else knows anyway.
i'd been told that different carat rings would wear each other away when worn next to each other though - that was obviously just jewellers trying to get me to spend more money
I wouldnt worry about that too much hun I hadnt even thought about my 2 rings being different carats, I picked mine because it complimented my engagement ring and it wasnt as expensive as some of the rings I've seen! As you say, when you're getting married on a budget (and ours is a pretty tight budget!) every penny counts!
I was told this about different carat rings too. That they would wear each other away. My engagement ring is also 18 carat but I couldn't find an 18 carat wedding ring that I liked any where so I asked the shop assistant if it really mattered if I bought a 9 carat and she said that it doesn't matter so much these days as the metals now are such better quality. I found a 9 carat that I absolutely loved so I bought it.
I was told this at the place where DF got my engagement ring. She said that the main reason is that you'll be able to tell the difference between the 9ct and the 18ct when they are up against each other.
Personally though? I really doubt that anyone is going to be THAT thorough when they look at your rings. They'll probably look and be all "oh, that's lovely!", not "Oh! Look! You've got different carats!"
The wedding band I picked just so happened to be the same carat as my engagement ring, but in all honesty if it wasn't I wouldn't be too bothered.
noit doesnt matter at all hun, for the past 2 years i have been 2 rings that are different carat, and they havent so much of scratched each other, you couldnt even tell, one is a 9ct gold and the other is an 18 carat gold, (although they look the same but are'nt) xx
My friend told me this, her rings were different carets and after 8 years of marrage her wedding band wore away parts of her engagement ring and she lost the diamond. for that reason I have got the same caret for mine x
