Awe! slow night on the boards I guess! We bought my e-ring from Zales (celebration collection) and the w-band I found online from a different jewelry store…

But I guess with a solitaire you have to make a set because most of them just don’t come with another band

We bought my ring alone. It came as a set, but the band had a notch in it and I couldn’t have worn it alone, which is something I wanted.

DH purchased my e-ring from Kays a Leo solitare. He let me pick out my matching leo wedding band from Kays.

Mine are not a set.  They’re actually from two different designers (the e-ring is Christopher Designs; the wedding band is Memoire),  but I chose both of them before DH purchased either of them so that I would not later have to try to find a band to go with my e-ring. DH also purchased them at the same time. 

Memoire actually had an e-ring setting that matched this band, and I chose not to get it.  I have, however, sometimes wished I had, because round brilliant diamonds sparkle more than baguettes do, and it sometimes drives me crazy that my center stone is so much more sparkly than the baguettes are. However, from strictly a design perspective, I love the contrast of the tapered baguettes against the round diamonds in my wedding band. 🙂

My rings were available separately (you could buy either one without necessarily buying the other) but they were specifically designed to fit and match each other so my husband bought them together as a set.  Personally, I don’t think there’s any point in buying this wedding band unless you also have the matching engagement ring because it can only fit together with THIS particular Claddagh ring and not any other.

My rings came as a set but we purchased the ering first and are making payments on the wedding ring.  My set is my avatar.

Mine came as a set as well. The wedding band is notched so as to sit with the engagement ring. I also plan on stacking a 2 mm plain white gold band underneath the wedding band in the future, maybe for an anniversary

not a set, but had I done a bit more research beforehand, and known what an expensive pain in the ass it was going to be having my band custom made, I would have looked at sets instead of indvidual erings.

Mine is not a set that was bought together but I think they look good together. 🙂

Mine were purchased as a set.  But they were purchased at different times.  They were out of the matching platinum bands when grandma went back to get one so she just got a white gold one.  Same thing she said and it really hasn’t made much of a difference lol.

@Sweet.Sugar.Rose:  I might be behind, but what happened to your ruby ring (the pear halo)?

 

Mine didn’t come as a set, but it was easy to find a standard band that matched.
