So, my FI purchased my e-ring and wedding band as a set. The wedding ring is a simple platinum band. My FI was told it complimented the style of my e-ring best. But since he basically made this decision alone, my FI also told me that we can go pick a new band if I was envisioning something more sparkly. I love the idea of a simple, clean wedding band, I feel like it has a classic look, but a small part of me is wondering if I should get at least a little bling. My reason being, there are times when I won’t want to wear my e-ring (gym, ocean, etc..) and if I choose to wear just the wedding band, it could be nice to have a little sparkle. Here is a pic of my Asscher cut e-ring with trapezoidal side stones paired with the simple platinum band. Thoughts? Would a sparkly band be too much based on my setting? I’ll try to get a better pic in natural sun light….

Can you go wedding band shopping and see if you like the look of a blingy ring better than the plain band your FI bought? I totally thought I wanted a plain band to go with my princess solitaire (I’m pretty simple), but I hated the way my ring looked with all of the plain bands I tried on. It really was too boring! I didn’t think I wanted any bling, but a very narrow channel set band ended up being perfect for me. I’m so glad I went with it becuase I don’t wear my e-ring much anymore, and I love wearing my slightly blingy wedding ring on its own. 🙂

I agree with ^^, you should go shopping. I always loved the classic plain look but I was convinced I needed sparkle. After trying them on, I decided plain was for me. You never know what you will prefer until its sitting on your finger.
You could always get some sparkle as an anniversary ring and wear it with the plain and not the ering.

That’s a gorgeous engagement ring! I have a blingy engagement ring and I’m planning to have a plain wedding band. Like you, I know I can’t wear my ering all the time so I want a simple band that I’ll never take off and won’t have to worry about getting the setting dirty etc.
But I agree with the PP’s saying to try some different bands on. It’s the only way you’ll know!

And the greedy answer is a plain band for the wedding and a thin diamond band on your anniversary! WOOT WOOT for long fingers! WHEW.. problem solved, crisis averted!

What a beautiful engagement ring! I absolutely adore plain wedding bands, they are so elegant and funnily enough the wealthiest and most well to-do people I have met always seem to wear plain wedding bands rather than showier rings.We have just bought our wedding rings and I got a platinum D shaped band.

Get both! Plain for when you’re active / cooking / looking after animals and babies. Bling for when you’re not! That’s what I plan to do. You can get really cheap plain bands 😉

If you can, get both, otherwise try them all on and think it through, it’s your decision, and if you keep gravitating to the sparkles, then get the sparkles, but if it’s the other way around and the plain makes you feel good, stay the plain x
