(Closed) E-ring before and after adding a wedding band

  • poll: How do you feel about your wedding band?

    I love how my band complements my engagement ring

    I love my band so much I want a second band

    I prefer the look of my engagement ring alone so I will wear the e-ring and band on different hands

    I don't wear a wedding band, only an engagement ring

    I only wear wedding band, no engagement ring

    Engagement Ring alone.

    With my plain, custom band. (basket of e-ring sits very low, nearly flush with my finger, so the band is kind of carved out so the e-ring sits on/in it)

    I think I am the only person I know IRL who has a plain white gold band. Everyone keeps coming up and asking to see my band and I can tell they are disappointed when it’s not diamonds, but I love my plain band. I didn’t want anything to take away from my e-ring, I love it so much.

    I didn’t have them soldered together because my fingers shrink and swell with temp changes so it’s fine w/ me if they wiggle a bit. I can’t wear my band alone though, so my husband bought me a thick copper band (sort of an inside thing) that I can wear if I don’t want to wear my set. I don’t have pics of it here though.

    @TheHoneyWajr:  I love plain bands. I think they are so classic and what I picture in my head as a “wedding band” for sure!

    My bands and e-ring were custom made as a set so I was a bit bummed during our engagement that I wasn’t able to wear the bands. However, by the end I really liked how my ring looked alone.

    I can’t post pics from my iPad (anyone know why?) but they’re around here somewhere LOL.  I realized far too late that I have 2 totally different tastes:  I love engagement rings that look good on their own, and I love wedding ‘sets’ that aren’t actual sets but go together and have a classic look.  For example, my engagement ring is a halo that I loved wearing while I was engaged, but I never loved it with any band.  The matching band made it look like 1 thicker ring, mismatched rings didn’t line up right, etc.  I was drawn to pictures of solitaires with plain bands, or solitaires with thin diamond bands.  In the end, I decided on a very plain band, that I love wearing alone, and works well enough with my engagement ring.  If given a chance down the road, I would probably change my engagement ring entirely, but since we never intended it to last forever I don’t feel guilty about that.

    I really don’t like my engagement ring with a band soooo I think i’m going to wear it on my right hand after we’re married. The wedding band I want is even more lovely then my engagement ring…

    @TheHoneyWajr:  I love your set, and I love plain wedding bands. I am getting a plain platinum band to go with my solitaire.
