So here’s the deal. I have an engagement ring and a wedding band. I always wanted a second wedding band as because its a thin band I think it will look weird on it’s own when not wearing engagement ring. I also like the idea of stacking a band either side of the engagement ring. Hubby is getting me the second band for our anniversary.
I always thought I wanted an identical one but then he suggested i might want something different or similar, but with a different design or different stones. I like the different stone idea but I always think coloured stones look better in yellow gold and my set is white gold.
What would you do? Would love to see suggestions. Or post your stackable sets for inspiration.
Here’s my set for reference

Get alternating diamonds with a color like sapphires or rubies! That way it will still coordinate well with your ring, and some pizzazz if you want with your set or to wear alone!!

Your set is absolutely beautiful! I love the milgrain detail!
I’m not married yet, but here’s a pic of my set.
I love the look of stacking bands, and I like that you’re able to wear them in different combinations. Mine are a little more matching in style, but I also love the look of Kate Beckinsale’s set where her bands do not match.
Mixed metal wedding sets are also really beautiful. Here’s a thread on Pricescope with some photos: http://www.pricescope.com/forum/show-me-the-ring/show-us-your-mixed-metal-stackers-with-ering-t192579.html
That being said, I don’t think it would look weird if you were to wear your band on its own either. It comes down to whatever you prefer since you can’t go wrong with any design.

Have you considered getting a plain band to wear solo? I think those tend to work best on their own.
As for stackers, I’m in love with these:

@lapetitefleur100: another vote for diamonds and gemstones! What’s your favorite color? I have rubies in white metal and get tons of compliments!

@wrkbrk: I really like Emeralds but again always thought they looked better in yellow gold. Might get the jeweller to show me some samples in white gold though – im definitely leaning towards a blend of diamonds and coloured gem stones. Or maybe even pink diamonds 🙂
