    Do you have a price range in mind? I presume you’re wanting the wedding band to be in platinum as well (most advisable).

    Did you want diamonds or some other type of gemstone? Colored stones or white?

    I hear ya! It’s conflicting when you initially won’t think it’ll be a big deal to find one you like.

     

    I would only suggest going with platinum for the band if you plan on wearing both rings together on one finger. The two different metals rubbing together will cause premature wear. If you move your e-ring to your right hand, another metal would be a-ok. Then you won’t have to worry about soldering or too much/too little of a look.

    Beautiful e-ring!! I would go try them on but I think a thin platinum band with white diamonds would really highlight the fancy yellow. I am having a hard time picturing it but I think it could look really amazing and classy.

    @mBride2011:  That was my initial though, too! A thin platinum band with Ring Bearer white diamonds (or other gemstones) would look very nice against the yellow center stone.

    @tolunda:  I vote for a plain platinum band with NO diamonds. It will look classy and timeless. You have a beautiful ring!

    To save money, you could go with palladium, which can be worn with platinum and is a bit cheaper.  I agree with the pro-plain band camp, but understand that a plain band isn’t for everyone.  Yellow gold would be beautiful, but the platinum will eat it over time.

    Here’s a pretty moissanite band that would be under budget:

    These would probably be over your budget, but it wouldn’t hurt to get a price quote.  I love the bottom two:

    I know moissanite co can do custom work, so maybe a band like the first one could be made with alternating moissy and yellow sapphires (lab created sapphires would cut the price down even more)

    Big reason why it’s so inexpensive is that the diamonds are color enhanced.

    Not “real” fancy colored diamonds = not so rare = much cheaper.

    Also, it’s 14k gold so that’s more inexpensive by nature.

    (I’m still looking for something curved, btw)

    @tolunda:  I would be wary of it.  It seems too cheap to be real or of good quality.
