What Is A Bridal Set Ring?
A bridal ring set traditionally refers to a bride’s matching engagement and wedding ring. Bridal sets are worn by the bride on her wedding day and onward.
Today, bridal ring sets can also refer to the different rings brides may wear as part of their bridal jewelry, but this isn’t as common.
What Is A Bridal Set Vs Engagement Ring?
A bridal set is when both your engagement ring and wedding ring are worn together. A bridal set refers to both rings whereas the engagement ring refers only to the engagement ring.
Can You Wear A Bridal Set As An Engagement Ring?
Traditionally, engagement rings are given after your partner proposes and wedding rings aren’t exchanged until the wedding day. Since a bridal set refers to both rings, a bridal set is typically not worn during the engagement period.
However, some couples may choose to give both rings during their proposal. It’s entirely up to you if you’d like to wear a bridal set as an engagement ring or wait until the wedding day.
Which Ring Is The Engagement Ring In A Bridal Set?
The engagement ring is the ring that is given first, during the initial proposal. Engagement rings tend to be more brilliant and feature a large center diamond. Wedding bands are more subtle and may feature several smaller diamonds, such as a pavé setting, or no diamonds at all.

How To Choose Bridal Set Rings
