Hello all! I’m seeking some help or advice with my difficult search for a wedding band!
I have a solitaire trellis setting engagement ring that I adore but I just cannot seem to decide on a band to go with it.
A couple things:
1. I want a ‘unique’ band. Now, I have no clue what this means to me, but I just want it to be a bit intricate or vintage-y or something!
2. I want yellow gold. This seems impossible to find in jewelry stores right now so I’m struggling to visualize what the bands will actually look like in yellow!
I don’t want my set to be overly ‘blingy’ and I think that’s one reason I’m drawn to yellow gold for a band. (I also wear a ton of both so I wanted to do a mixed metals set). But I also don’t want it to be too plain and regret not getting a diamond band at a later date.
So, I’m going to post some photos of a Tacori setting I found (in white gold, of course). Let me know if you like it with my ring or not and also if you think it would be good in yellow gold — if ANYONE has pictures of a Tacori band in yellow gold, could you post those!? I’ll also include a photo of my ring with a plain, yellow gold band which is kindof my ‘fallback’ band. If I can’t seem to find exactly what I want, I think I might just go with the plain one. Let me know what you think of both or if you have a suggestion of any other ‘unique’ or intricate band that you think could work!!

I think the Tacori is lovely – sparkly and femenine but not over the top. I have a similar (in concept )set with a yellow gold wedding /engagement wrap that is soldered and a diamond anniversarry band. MrsEH:

I like the Tacori especially if vintage is the look you want. The twisty band accentuates the set without over powering or competing with the stone. The plain band wasn’t my cup of tea paired with your gorgeous trellis setting.

Thank you both so much for the input! I’m loviing the look of they yellow gold in those photos!!! I found an actual stock picture of the yellow gold ring (in the eternity style) and I think I love it even more. What do you guys think? I just wish I could see it on my hand! 🙂

I love the tacori but honestly love it the way it is in the picture you posted. Your ering has a modern look to the white gold and I do worry about the yellow gold clashing. I love mixed metals but my jaw dropped when you posted he first pics with the white gold tacori. You seem set on yellow gold though and the stock photo looks gorgeous!

abm0611: Thanks for the input! I do love the white gold style as well, I think the reasons I love the yellow gold style is first off because I wear a lot of yellow gold jewelry but also because it looks almost less ‘blingy’ than white gold does, in my opinion. And I like that less ‘in your face’ look I think! 🙂
I do agree with you though on worrying about it clashing just because I haven’t been able to see anything like it in person so I have that tinge of worry that I’ll hate it if I end up commiting to the yellow without seeing it!

I voted plain! I don’t like settings with tons of little diamonds because I’m hard on my hands and they fall out.

Thank you! I absolutely adore yellow gold- it is so rich warm and welcoming- also rose gold. I wear both. II absolutely LOVE the Tacori in yellow gold!! I think it will look gorgeous with your engagement ring 🙂 I do not understand why yellow gold is so under represented in the jewelry stores . It is classic and beautiful and if more people saw it they would fall in love and it would be more popular again. After all gold is naturally yellow- and no worries about Rhodium plating! 🙂
