    We both have white gold and diamonds so I guess they do match. It wasn’t conscious though.

    No. Just no. DH swore that he would never ever wear a wedding band, except for special fancy occasions. Challenge accepted. I found him a Real-Tree APG Camo wedding band, which was more of a joke then anything, and since I showed it to him that is the only one he would ever remotely contemplate. That is what he got. I didn’t want a matching one thanks, I think it would have looked silly with my yellow gold ering.

    Also my parents didn’t have matching bands so it was never something that I thought about. Funny part is my band matches my dad’s lol.

    Mine is a 1.5 mm platinum and micopave diamond that closely matches my engagement ring’s band. My FI has a tungsten one. Nothing alike.

    My ring has pave curves and needed the matching curved pave band. His is a “typical” tungsten carbide band that men are choosing these days (not all identical of course, but GIS “tungsted carbide wedding band”, that general style)

    @renwoman: If you want your rings to sort of match, could you get yours oxidized so it’s kind of black? I understand if you’re not interested in that idea though, it’s a very different look 🙂 But I think it’s beautiful either way! And his ring is cool too, though it seems to me like it might feel weird.

    I voted other: FI wants a wedding band that has both white and yellow gold, so I’ve decided to pair a yellow gold eternity band with my white gold engagement ring. So we’ll both have two metal colors, which is uncommon, but other than that they don’t match at all.

    Uhh..the don’t match but I guess they compliment each other because they both have “angled shapes” in them.

    Ours don’t match. I had to fall in love with a fancy, curved, sparkly ring, and FI just wanted a plain band. Our metals aren’t even the same–I got platinum to match my e-ring, and FI decided he wanted WG. So at least the color matches!

    Nope, not in the slightest. I have two; one is YG and one is RG, and my husband has a titanium with blue lapis inlay ring. We love having rings that show off our personalities!

    Our original wedding bands do not match.  Mine is a platinum princess cut diamond channel set eternity ring that matches the side stones on my e-ring.  My DH’s is a white gold hammer finish band.  I also got a milgrain edge plain band.  For our 8 year anniversary, I bought us matching tungsten bands – mine is 4mm and his is 6mm.  I can’t wear diamonds to work (I am a NICU nurse) and his band was getting really banged up being worn all the time since he works in a lab around a lot of chemicals.  Tungsten is the only metal that the hand sanitizer doesn’t eat alive so it works for both our work bands.

    Nope, mine’s yellow gold and really detailed.  His is tungsten and really simple.

    Nope, mine is family heirloom and he was fairly particular about wanting a steel, “nature-y” ring.  We never really thought about getting matching bands, so I guess it wasn’t too important.

    My wedding band is platinum with pave diamonds and my husbands is tungsten, so no, they definitely do not match.
