I actually got two wedding bands lol. One is just plain gold and one has stones in it. The plain gold band is going to be my “official” wedding band (as in, it will be the one my Fiance will put on my finger on our wedding day) but I like the sparkle of the other band and I plan on mixing it up to suit my mood. I don’t have any pictures, sorry.

@DeathByDesign: Ditto. I have a channel band with diamonds as well as a plain yellow gold band. I work with clothes on the weekend and therefore don’t like wearing my diamonds (scared to death they’ll fall out if they get snagged) and wear my plain gold band then. My M-F job I wear my entire wedding set with the channel band

My fiance and I are planning on simple yellow gold wedding bands.  They’re timeless and a simple gold band will fit best against my emerald and diamond engagement ring.

white gold, yes. I want to wear my e-ring on my left hand, and then I won’t have to worry about them “matching!”

What about mixing a white gold engagement ring with a yellow gold plain band?  I’m conflicted.  I really like the idea of using my grandmother’s ring, and it’s yellow gold.  I would also really like to wear them together, as opposed to wearing my enagement on my right hand and band on my left.

Originally when I thought I would have to get a solitaire e-ring, I wanted to have a plain white gold band to go with it. But once I discovered the diamond eternity bands, I decided to skip the e-ring altogether and just have the diamond band.  But my ring is half-eterning so I can turn it around and wear it as a plain band if I feel like it

@jenk968:  I’m in the same dilemma.  I really want to use my grandmother’s yellow band also, but it’s 2 sizes too big and I dont know if I can bring myself to get rid of the engraving that’s there if it was resized.  It’s aslo 3mm, which is kind of bulky on my hand.  My ering is a yellow diamond so it would match in that sense but the rest f it is white.

 

I say go for it.  Screw the color.  It’s very personal and special. and a plain band looks good next to just about everything.  If your really that on the fence about it, you might want to consider getting the band rhodium dipped.  I don’t know much about it.  But I do know that you have to do it once or twice a year because it will fade back to yellow.

Woo! I have a plain white gold band. Darling Husband and I had a friend make them for us. I LOVE it. It is so simple and elegant.

I currently wear a plain gold band, but my new wedding ring will have sapphires. I just like a little something extra 🙂

@MASPA – Thanks for the support.  My grandmother’s ring is too big also, but no engraving so no problem with resizing.  I also thought about rhodium plating- I don’t know much about it either.  I’ll have to take it to someone to check out the options.  I also thought about having them melt it down and make something different out of it, but that’s a whole other project.  🙂

I had one for my first marriage, as did my Fiance to his ex-wife.  We went with tungsten because, welllll… it’s a running joke between us. 🙂  My brother has a plain gold band he wears, when he wears it (he’s a carpenter, so it’s not always a safe thing to wear).

Mine is a plain white gold band that is the smallest thickness my jeweler could get. Personally, I love it even while I’m wearing just that because my fingers are slightly swollen from pregnancy.

I will have a 1920s barrel 22k (very!) yellow gold wedding band, given to me by my mum. I’m really pleased to have something very plain, as my ering will be a tourmaline, and so when I’m doing anything strenuous I can wear my wedding ring only.
