Hello Bees! I have a pear cut solitaire in 14k yellow gold for an E ring and need help on whether a 14k yellow gold half eternity garnet wedding band would look good with it.
Let me give a little info on why we are considering this wedding band. My fiance is from Nepal and she is hindu. Red is the wedding dress color in Nepal and they wear red in the part of their hair (depending on how traditional you are) to show they are married. Well she moved to America where we met and fell in love and ofcourse is not as traditional as her parents and will not be wearing the red in the part of her hair so I suggested the idea of a little east meets west and have red in her wedding band.
What do you think? any comments are welcome!

@Burch663: I think that would look stunning! I am loving garnets more and more lately. I wanted a pop of color too and did a ruby band with my plain solitiare 🙂

I think that would be a really nice way to honor her traditions, and I think they would go nicely together. Would it be at all possible to have the band curved to fit snuggly against the ering at all?

@wrkbrk: Very pretty! I like both garnets and rubys I’m just leaning more towards a garnet for that darker red.

@FortiesFlare: Most likely, if this is what we end up deciding on I will be taking this to my local jeweller and having them custom design it. My Fiance also suggested the curved band aswell. What would you think? A V at the butt of the pear, or curved? or like an enhancer?

I think it would look great! And I love the extra meaning behind it.

@Burch663: cant really help with fit (I would think curved?) but I love the color, idea, sentiment!

It will be gorgeous! I love the look, and I love symbolism, as well.

I also voted yes, but agree with PPs that diamond/garnets would be even prettier!

@Burch663: I like the nod to tradition and vote for the garnet band. I would probably do a subtle curve in the band vice the harsher “V” around the point of the pear. Perhaps your jeweler has some tasty ideas of their own as well.
