I need your advice.
I have a platinum ERing and I’m getting a diamond wedding band custom made. I’m not in the “blingier the better” camp but I fell in love with my diamond band 🙂
Sooo I was thinking, should I get a plain band for when I want less bling to wear on its own? I was thinking a rose gold band like this:
This ring is gold filled and therefore super cheap. I thought it would be good to see if I liked it and then get a solid gold one if I decide to get it as one of my wedding bands.
What do you think?
BTW I’m sorry for the many, many ring threads. You ladies are just awesome! People in IRL would be sick of me by now!

@linnylou_88: ROFL hun you are fine. Post away. This is pretty funny because I basically did the same thing. I have a diamond wedding band in wg and a plain band in wg but I also got a cheapy rose gold clad ring to wear at work. Well I feel in love with it and the way it looks stacked with my ering and wband. So now I’m trying to get DH to buy me a rose gold 14kt band.

The rose gold scratches pretty easily (I have one and was talking about this on a similar thread earlier). If you pair it with a stronger metal ring, it will get dinged up pretty quickly.

@linnylou_88: having a classic plain band is always a good option, I have one myself, well, two: one white gold an another rose gold. From your post I love the one with a satin finish.

@orchidblooms: Haha that was probably my thread too! I have rose gold on my mind! I think if I were to get a 2mm rose gold band I’d wear it on its own when I want a more simple look. I’m now too worried about them being scratched to wear it with my ERing!

@orchidblooms: It scratches fairly easily? I have a rose gold engagement ring, and as we were picking it up, the jeweler said that rose gold is the softest gold? it’s 14k and now I’m terrified I will lose my diamond. What do you think?

I wanted a honeymoon ring/wear if I can’t wear my diamond band ring so I found this at cash converters for $70. It’s 18k gold and it’s perfect. I wore it today to the beach for the first time and loved it. I highly recommend it.

@linnylou_88: My main wedding band is a platinum and diamond band which has been custom made to fit around my engagement ring. I’m then getting a plain palladium band to wear when it isn’t appropriate to wear my wedding set, which will cost about £100.
So, I say go for it! It’s nice to have options 🙂

@franklyn: Sorry for the late reply, but I’m not worried about losing stones in mine, but it does scratch. I’ve had it under a month and have one scratch on it that’s on the deep side that’s from reaching into the washing machine for something at the bottom and on the way up I hit the ring against the metal at the top of the washer. I think it will just have to be smoothed out professionally here and there.

That’s exactly what I have! A blingy set and simple bands to wear more casually. I also went with rose gold, but I bought 2 rings over time…one with diamonds and one plain. I love them stacked together:
