I’m a bit nontraditional in that I did not want an engagement ring (it just didn’t make sense for our relationship, we’ve considered ourselves engaged since just a couple months after we met 10 years ago) and I am also specifically looking for a wedding band without any stones.
I kind of fell in love with this one, but am worried it might just be cause it’s a trendy look and I like it now, but it will look dated quickly (comes in white gold and rose gold as well). It’s kind of between this and a regular plain band, which I know is much more timeless and I do love the simplicity, but I do crave some level of detail that is fairly neutral. This seems to hit that mark, but maybe in a few years it will just seem off?
A tighter-weave version…

That doesn’t look trendy at all! Trendy to me is a halo ring with an eternity or 3/4 eternity band. I feel like 90% of the bees have that combo these days.

I like the second, tighter weave better. One thing to remember with anything with little crevices like that is the amount of water and dirt that will get stuck in them.

I don’t keep up with trends, so I don’t really know. However, I don’t like that band and I prefer a traditional look. It’s a very personal decision though so who cares if I like it so long as you do 🙂

I like the first. In yellow gold.
If you’re worried about trendy, I’d avoid rose gold. I LOVE rose gold, but its a thing of the moment right now (NOTHING WRONG WITH ROSE GOLD E-RING/BANDS) so if you want traditional, steer clear.

I’m not very aware of fashion in rings but I’m fairly certain a plaited band isn’t a new concept 🙂
Also, it is still pretty simple, and I find simple things are less likely to become dated.
Since you don’t have an engagement ring to match it with I really don’t see why you shouldn’t go for it! ^^ Both the bands you’ve shown are very pretty 🙂

@cantonbride: You know, I was wondering that too, but I also realize that yellow gold is sort of “trending” too now, whereas 10 years back literally everything was white gold or platinum, or at least I refused to wear anything yellow, now that’s all I wear. I have a plain wedding band in my family from 1917 and it is rose gold…so maybe that trend comes by every 100 years or so. It seems like no matter which color metal you pick, you can be dating yourself.
And I guess the same can be said for styles, unless you go completely plain.

I absolutely love the rose gold, looser weave one!

A good friend of mine wears a rose gold braid as her wedding band, and it looks gorgeous. I’d say go for it, either one (loose or tight) would work great.

I love the first one in yellow gold. I love the loose, braided weave. It isn’t trendy, but it does stand out. I love it.

@lazy: it definitely depends on the times/market. a few years ago a jeweler told me he is predicting YG to make a comeback soon since the market is saturated with white, itll be “different”. looks like he was right!

@lazy: Can you get both? A plain band to get married in and this “stacker” for some days? 🙂

I personally feel rose gold is here to stay, considering it’s always been around…I just think it happens to be “trending” right now. But if you sincerely like it, then go for it…if you like it, then you will in the future, too.
I don’t feel this ring is trendy. I feel it’s classic. 🙂

I really LOVE the first one.
