Im new here- thought Id join the group since my bf asked me to go look at rings with him and we’re looking towards marrige! Super excitIm a bit of a mess finding the right e-ring though! I went by the local pawn shop and saw some lovely antique rings. I hadn’t seen anything like them before! The ones that really caught my attention were the ones that looked like this:
The diamonds were a bit bigger at the store- and some were good quality! I tend to like e-rings where the shank has a bit of sparkle in it, but I was thinking these would look good with perhaps a miligrain leaf/vine wedding band. I think the styles mesh well… What do you think?
Here’s a picture of the band type I’m talking about, I’d be looking for a thinner, cheaper one though:
If any of y’all have a vine/floral design like this on a ring, or an art deco ring, or something else related, post pics!

@AcornEyes: I’m posting pics for reference.
I’m not exactly sure how those two would look together, but you could easily wear the band on your left hand and the e-ring on your right (or vise versa). Have you gone looking in person? That needs to happen before you can get too serious. Plus lots of ring porn!

@AcornEyes: If you do go with that band, dont order it from that company listed. Way too over priced! You find the exact same on ebay for like $300.

We just bought my band today! I was looking at the rings in the Addy and GoldAdore shops on etsy. We went out to check out pawn shops and estate jewelers here to see if there were any in the area that were close by that I like. The prices in the pawn shops were much lower, but their selection was hit or miss. One estate jeweler knew exactly what I was looking for and I ended up with an orange blossom platinum band. No photos yet, but I going to have to really resist wearing it until after the wedding.
