My wedding band and engagement ring are a set with pave on both, so needless to say FI’s wedding ring won’t match mine. Is it silly that this bothers me a teensy bit?
So, I thought, I’ll at least get him a ring that is the same metal and from the same designer, so they still all “go” together. BUT turns out the place FI got my rings doesn’t do milgrain! And FI has his heart set on a 6mm plat band with a milgrain edge. SIGH.
Is there anything any of you can think of that might make our rings a “set”? Or should I just forget it?

could you get something matching engraved in them? Like your wedding date? That would make them a set! Also you might want to shop around to get exactly what you want. my ering my wedding ring and his ring come from 3 different stores.

Ours don’t match in terms of design (mine are also pave diamonds) and he discovered he loved a two-tone look to his ring. I was a little sad that our rings won’t be similar, but we want to get them engraved so that they will match that way! We are currently debating on either picking each other’s engravings or doing the same thing. Good luck!

Our rings aren’t a set. I have emerald-cut and baguette diamonds, and Jim has round. However, they are both set in 14k white gold. so I think they look nice together.
I don’t think it’s important for them to match or be a set. I actually don’t like the matchy-matchy look. He has different tastes than I have, and his ring reflects that.
I think the most important thing be that you both love your rings and that you are both proud to wear them. If you get rings that match or that are a set, I think it’s easier for someone to become unhappy with their ring at some point and wish they had a ring that is reflects his/her personality.

Green Lake Jewelers does milgrain – they’ll do anything. And their online design setup is fabulous. My band came from them when FI’s goldsmith couldn’t make a 3mm band for me that would match FI’s.

Im kinda sad ours wont match but I would never expect them to because we like the totally oposite things. I LOVE yellow gold and he got a tungston

Nope ours don’t match at all… mine is platinum with diamonds, and his is titanium.

Ours don’t match! I have a solitare with a half eternity on each side of the e-ring and he has a fairly plain band (though it does have a row of dots on the top and on the bottom so it “complements” mine I think).
Don’t worry if they don’t match! But an engraving would be a cool idea. I still kinda want to get ours engraved.

Our rings won’t match because mine is part of a set so it came with my engagement ring. It doesn’t really bother us that they don’t match but we are probably going to get them engraved so they will kind of match.

Ours match, sort of. His wedding band is two toned gold mine is just yellow gold.

The goldsmith who made FI’s ring also does milgrain: QuiltedPony on esty.

Ours will only match because they will both be plain silver bands but later I might upgrade so who knows for the future

I’m glad I’m not the only one who is a little sad about not matching, and having them engraved the same is great alternative! How narrow is too narrow to have engraved? My wedding band is only 1.8 mm — is that doable?
Also, thanks for the tips on jewelers you’ve used — very helpful!
