LOL, there is no rule that a 5 stone has to b an anniversary band!  I know people that use a 5 stone or a 7 stone asa their wedding ring.

I don’t like the word earn either… like you need to be a good wife to get it???  whatevs, if that is what you want as a wedding band, buy it yourself and be done with it.

I think “earning” a band is a weird way of putting it, but I like the idea of starting simple. I have a solitaire engagement ring and I’ll be wearing a plain platinum band with it. I love the look of a plain band.

@TaurianDoll:  Something like that, on Blue Nile, goes for like $6,000: http://www.bluenile.com/ca/platinum-blue-nile-signature-ideal-cut-diamond-ring_34901 and they have excellent prices!

Soo I see what he means about having to ‘earn’ it lol. I am sure he didn’t mean it in the way of ‘you need to be a good little wife first before I’ll consider it’. 

If you have the money, then by all means.

I much prefer the style of the plain band with your solitaire, personally.  It look so classic and really emphasizes the diamond instead of competing with it!

I actually really like the band that you have and think it goes much better with your e-ring as it is.

I know people change their rings later in life, but perhaps after the wedding and engagement high you’re on rides out, it wont seem as important to you to have that big sparkle next to your e-ring. I’m doubtful theres that many people who have been married for 5+ years that look back and go “I wish we paid that extra 2,000 so my ring were more sparkley!”

@TaurianDoll:  That is exactly the look I have – a solitaire with 5 stone ring. I used the 5 stone band as a wedding ring!

I think having two bands would be perfect for your active lifestyle. You could wear the plain one when you work out and the blingy one all the other times.

DH and I don’t plan to upgrade my wedding band, but we do plan on adding bands and creating a stack as our family grows. We would like to upgrade my ering in the far away future though.

I chose a plain band with my solitaire but i think it’s a nice thought. I would like to add another small blingy band for having a child or a 10 year anniversairy. You’ve got to save some things the next 40+ years IMO
