Help me decide what kind of wedding band I should get!

Recommended Posts

Ok, the recent thread on rings reminded me to ask you ladies for your opinion. I only have my e-ring, not the band yet and we really haven't done any serious shopping around for the band yet - it's one of those things we're putting off until the last minute, I am sure. Anyway, I have a few different things I am considering, and am leaning towards one of them and my fiance wants something different. I go back and forth!

 

I am also looking for any other ideas you may have! Please let me know if you have some ideas, but keep in mind I am pretty simple, and don't want something too flashy.

 

So below there are links to pictures that give you an idea of some of the options I am considering. can you help me choose my band?! I wish I could place them together somehow (the e-ring and band), since it would help me decide, but I don't know of a site where you can do that.

 

My Ring (not my actual ring, or where I even bought it, but close enough and it gives you a good enough idea): Platinum Asscher-Cut Three-Stone Ring (1 ct. tw.)

 

 

 

Option 1: plain platinum band

Option 2: Channel set princess cut diamonds going about 1/2 way around the platinum band

Option 3: Channel set princess cut diamonds going about all the way around the platinum band (eternity band)

I love the eternity band idea but I voted for halfway around, that is what I decided because the lady at the jewlery store told me the only problem with eternity bands is that they are hard to size, because you basically lose a diamond if they are too big or have to add diamonds if they are too small-which could get expensive.

Ann, personally I love sparkly things, but that is just me. I think if you like plain things and don't like fussy things or too much detail then you should keep it simple and go for #1. Do you plan to wear both of them together? If you are going to wear both of them together then I think #2 and #3 are a bit much. Your finger is going to look busy (unless you like that look of course and then you should go for it). But b/c you have a main stone, and two side stones, I think getting a band with diamonds on it will be too much. But if your planning on eventually wearing the band by itself then it might be nice to have something like #3 so you still get the diamond effect. Just my opinion.

I voted for number 2. I think its the right about of sparkly. The 3rd one is just too much if you are more plain (not in a bad way of course). So, I say #2 but I see the allure of #1 as well, just not #3.

I love this - thanks for all of the opinions ladies (keep 'em coming!).

 

The one thing I am not sure of about option #2 is if it keeps turning on my finger so that the diamonds aren't in the center will it drive me nuts?

 

And I don't know if I will want to wear just my band ever, w/o the e-ring. If I do I wonder if the plain band would just be too, well, plain. I'm not a fancy girl, but I do like my sparkle!

 

I hadn't thought about the sizing issues of an eternity band (#3) - so that helps.

Ann I swear we could be sisters on how much we have in common, I'm having mine bonded together to avoid the rings turning apart from each other. I didn't want to at first, but it would also drive me crazy fixing it all the time. :-)

Too dang funny - I actually had the ring and band from my first marriage bonded together. I don't know if I will do that this time just because I want the option of just wearing the band - but then I wonder when I would even want to do that anyway ...

 

I am the most indecisive person! Maybe I could just get 2 bands ... hmmmm ... (yea right!)

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
