Strawberryshmoo:  I like your first choice better. It’s classy & elegant. Etoile/burnished styling just looks too masculine to me, for some reason. The first band is very feminine, timeless, and looks “richer” with your e ring.

Strawberryshmoo:  I really like the second band, but personally, I don’t think it goes that well. I would have gone with no diamonds or diamonds that are the same shape or set similarly as your engagement ring side stones. The diamonds in the band are bezel set and your engagement ring diamonds aren’t. That’s just my opinion though. As long as you like it, that’s all that matters.

Strawberryshmoo:  It looks fine, but you’re not going to get a lot of love for it on WB because that style is not ‘on trend’. The first one is, but I can see where you’re going with this, to some people the first band with your engagement ring could look a little busy, plus, if you’re working with your hands all the time…yikes! Personally I appreciate clean lines, so I think the nice neat edge of your ring choice is very pretty. The latest photo looks great, it’ll also stand alone really well. This being said, with your lovely engagement ring I would probably have gone for something with baguettes (but still clean lines),… I am having a small amount of band regret not getting one like this myself

but that’s not to say yours isn’t a lovely choice, one of the nice things about shiny diamond rings is that they’re basically all good and it’s just down to personal preference 🙂

I wanted something with tiny diamonds and extra sparkle, so I have little round diamonds in my band too!

They’ll look fine together. Don’t stress about it.

Tbh I much, much prefer the first one. It’s so dainty and pretty and goes with your e-ring perfectly. It’s nothing to do with trends as a PP suggested, it’s just that my eyes prefer it.

Strawberryshmoo:  Hi, you’re welcome. I should clarify when I suggested that ring 1 was ‘on trend’ that this was not a criticism, things are popular for a reason, but that does mean, if you ask for popular opinion and you go against the trend…then your choice won’t necessarily be as readily embraced.

Your ring sounds ideal for what you describe lifestylewise, the collaborative design aspect is extra charming.

Mine is quite different to yours, but as my engagement ring also has baguettes as well as a central (and little) round, I thought though our engagement rings are very different (yours is much more impressive), we might be considering similar styles 🙂 This is my engagement ring, sorry about the quality, had to compromise otherwise it was gigantic.

And here is the band I decided on (it is the matching ‘hers’ to the ‘his’ my fiance liked…the only one he liked >.>). I like the slim band, sparkle and the clean lines, but I can see that it would be very hard to keep clean whilst camping!

Taiki:  I love this ring, where is it from??

LaPetiote:  Thank you and yes 😉 engagement ring was from http://www.diamondsandpearlsperth.com.au/home 

Wedding band is from http://www.lazarediamond.jp/collection/marriage/highline.php but it is not a particularly original design, I imagine a good jeweller could get the same effect without requiring a trip to Tokyo (unless you are planning one!)

Strawberryshmoo: Thank you for your kind compliments. Sadly it was new, but we have a bunch of deco jewellery from my great great grandma in my family, so I am guessing that shaped my taste growing up (it’s not all subtle though, one of the cocktail rings is just a massive stack of baguettes, you could take someone’s face off…hence not for everyday wear ).

I understand re not being a blingy person (sorry, I never meant to imply that, just that your central diamond is stunning and looks ‘just right’ on your finger, in my book). Bling isn’t my day to day style either, even that band is a HUGE departure from my normal style, I would never have considered it without my fiancé there with me (and him falling instantly in love with the ‘his’ end of that bargain). 

Your grandma’s set is darling! It’s just what I imagined when you described it, love that real vintage deco style. So clean, so geometric!

One thing though, if you are very sentimental, rings and any water activities are a recipe for heart ache  My aunt lost her custom wedding ring just splashing at the beach, I think it’s partly because you finger shrinks in cold water. Food for thought.
