Newly engaged (YAY) and curious about how other lesbians have done their engagement rings. I’m pretty femmy and was proposed to with a diamond ring that I’m very happy with but my fiance is trying to figure out whether she wants a band now, and then one later when we’re married. She isn’t super feminine so she doesn’t want a diamond ring, however wouldn’t be opposed to a band with diamonds in it. Not really sure how to go about it (she doesn’t want to be proposed to) or if anyone else has done it this way. Is it unromantic to just go and buy an egagement band? Do two bands look cool together? And of course, please post pics! x

I don’t think it’s unromantic at all to just go buy a band! Especially if she’s not wanting a big production out of a proposal. I don’t have any pics but I’ve seen some lovely double band ladies. I’m picturing a scattered diamond band and then a plain. Or maybe a floral and plain? I’d look on Etsy for inspiration. They have anything you can dream up.

I think just 1 band would be absolutely fine. She can wear it from now if she wants to show that she’s engaged. I don’t think that’s weird at all.
I think a rose gold “men’s band” could be really nice. Just an idea. (From Lasercraftdesign on Etsy)

missconvy : awesome! I think she did like the idea of a scattered band. Still flashy but not too much so. And you’re right – romance isn’t dead after all 😉
orangegreen : thx! really loving the mixed metals! and yeah it seems like more and more LGBTQ couples tend to do that nowadays.
Thanks guys!! Honestly pretty helpful input.

Would she like a diamond band for the engagement and then a plain metal band for the wedding? They’ll look great separate or together. Here’s what I’m thinking:

riccischill : i have a friend thats an EMT so she can’t have a raised ring, so her engagement ring is a channel set diamond band and her wedding band is a plain band and it looks great together

I’m in a hetero couple, but I definitely considered a engagement band and then a plain wedding band. I really like how minimalist is looks. I ended up with a more “traditional” engagement ring, but still love how 2 bands look. In parts of Europe that’s actually the norm.

jayrock : Ohh that looks so good! It’s nice that they don’t look clunky together I think that’s one of her worries but it still looks very elegant.
nykkee : she does like the way the channel setting looks as well! And easily paired with another type of band.
charlie057 : I’ve heard about that being the more european thing to do. I personally think it looks really cool. I’ll have to let her know!
