I was just wondering what everyone’s preferences are on pave bands and plain bands?
Do you prever an e-ring with pave bands or plain? And do you prefer to match the band with the same style wedding ring? Or do you like to mix plain and pave?
I’m having a tough time deciding if I want a pave or plain band for my e-ring! I’m leaning towards a plain e-ring band with a pave wedding band, and then another pave anniversary band to even things up 🙂
Comments are welcome as are photos of your preferred sets!!
ETA: FWIW I would be (hopefully) getting a Morganite gem in a halo setting.

@hidingpearl: I like pave, with pave but thin pave between 1.5 to 2 mm. I’m all about the bling. 😉

I have both pave ering and wedding bands…like Pp’s I love the bling too:) My advice would be to try on the different combos in your poll and take pics.

My two cents – if you like bling, get the pave band and pave e-ring, but also get a plain band too. A plain band isn’t very expensive, and it’s not like you have to get a warranty on it or worry about it. Like 80 bucks on Amazon can get you a decent one. Practicality is a good thing 🙂
I have a very thin pave eternity band to wear with my split shank pave halo, but honestly, many if not most days i just wear a plain white gold band. If I go out I’ll put my e-ring on with the plain band. I just do too many things – cleaning, gardening, running, cooking, etc – to keep my good set on all the time.

My e-ring has pave on it (3/4 eternity), and the heirloom wedding band we will use has two rows of pave along the top. I would have preferred a plain wedding band (or one that matches my e-ring), but the vintage ring has such a great relationship behind it that to not use it would be a tragedy. I won’t mind wearing it when the time comes.

The thing that worries me about pave bands is how easy it could be to lose a diamond from them, and how much that might cost to fix. I echo the PP who said to get a backup plain band, especially if you do anything with your hands that might make losing a diamod easier. If you like bling, go for pave, but backup plans are never a bad thing. I’m not a huge bling girl, so I have a plain ering band, and will probably have a plain band of some sort, myself.

Well, my ering has pave, so I will be shopping for a wedding band that is similar. Can never have too much sparkly in one’s life… 🙂

I love the look of a plain thin solitaire with pave wedding ring.
Unfortunately I didn’t realize this until AFTER having my pave engagement ring for 4 months.
I was so focused on the design of the engagement ring that a wedding band beside it didn’t factor too much in the selection of setting.

People are definitely going to be split on this question. Personally, I love my plain solitaire and pave wedding band combo! I feel like the plain band makes the center stone stand out so it doesn’t get lost amongst all the sparkle. And now for a gratuitous photo of my rings =)
