Did most of you pick your own band or did he just go ahead and get the matching set? Did you want the matching set? For those who wanted mismatched that he bought the matching set do you still love it now? Also did he ask first?

Mr. S bought the matching band. I was willing to go with something different (that would have been half the cost of the matching one) but he didn’t like the way it looked. He liked the matching one. And since he gifts the wedding band to me, he deserves a say. I do really like the matching one and since there’s a gap between the band and the ering, it gives it some interest.

I picked the engagement ring with him, and it could have been ordered with a matching twisted Verragio band, but I didn’t like it. I just picked out a straight micropave band later that worked.

I picked my engagement ring but I’m still waiting for the proposal. He let slip that he went ahead and got the matching set. He’s so sweet. I just didn’t pay attention to bands that much and didn’t even see mine had a matching band. I always thought I wanted mismatched but I kind of like that he was still able to surprise me since I picked the ering.

Soon2BeMrsS: see I figured we would pick one out together and u knew it would be cheaper too, but I think he likes things to match like your FI
Pinkmoon: This is why I will never regret picking my own ering… I’m so particular about jewelry.
blankenshiptobe: I love the braided rings and heirlooms are so meaningful. 🙂

smilestorm: we picked out my e-ring together and I probably would have perfered a match set but of course we picked the one ring that didn’t have a matching band. We lucked out and found one that’s pretty much perfect at a different store – where we also picked his band, again together.

Mine is the other way around, sort of. I picked an engagement ring and wedding band that I loved, but I preferred the depth and roundness of the channel set band and asked the jeweller to make the band on the enagement ring match it because I didn’t like the fact one was chunkier than the other

We picked my engagement ring together, without a band. We also went band shopping together and got matching Cartier bands, his being slightly thicker in width than mine, but otherwise the same.

smilestorm: Mine’s an heirloom ring with the matching band sautered to it. I like it, but we’re making it out own by adding a new band to it as well.

I have always wanted a matching set. I love the mis-matched look, too, but I guess I always pictured a wedding “set”. Probably because that’s what my mom has. Anyhow, for whatever reason, I’ve always wished for this. My first engagement ring had a matching band, but we couldn’t afford it at the time. So I wore a band only. My current ring doesn’t have a matching band. But DH has said we can get something custom to match. So, maybe I’ll have the set of my dreams one of these days. Until then, I’ll just enjoy being mismatched!

Mine technically isnt a set because they had to be purchased separately but they are both Neil Lane and hubby picked them both out.

I got a pseudo matching one. My husband only bought the engagement ring and it didn’t really come as a “set”. We went together to pick out wedding bands later. I have a white gold channel set diamond solitare engagement ring and we chose matching white gold wedding bands.
