I’m wearing a basic 18K gold band for during pregnancy. I miss wearing my sparkly, but it’s for the best because my fingers got all swollen!

My sister only has a plain wedding band, she just hates wearing any jewellery and always has.

rusty15:  Thanks! My DH picked out that band. He has great taste!  Unfortunately, I can’t wear it alone at the moment. About 12 years ago (when I got pregnant), I gained so much weight. And my band didn’t fit any more. Over the last year, I’ve been working hard on trying to be healthier. I’ve lost quite a bit of weight, so now my band is actually too loose! (Can’t win — ha, ha.) I think I may go and have a sizing hump put into it.

My first wedding band was a plain (10k I think) yellow gold band.  No detail, nothing special.  For this marriage I had been eyeing diamond eternity or half-eternity bands because they are so beautiful.  After trying some on, they just don’t feel right.  They’re still beautiful, no doubt, but I think I want a simple band again.  My e-ring catches on clothes, gets banged around, I don’t sleep in it, don’t feel right cooking/cleaning in it.  I want something I can leave on all the time.  I think I’ll try to find a plain-ish band, maybe with a little design or detail like yours OP.  Yours is really nice looking.

longtimemrs:  Thank you for your kind words! I sometimes feel like I post pictures of my set all over the this site.

OP, my mother also does not wear (or have) an engagement ring. She wears 2 yellow gold bands; one is a 2mm milgrain edge band (which inspired my white gold wedding band) and the other is a 3mm dome band. It looks understated but clearly indicates “married”.
