- Wedding: September 2013
I need your help! I’m trying to narrow down a mismatched wedding band and am hoping someone out there has one of these bands or experience with these jewelry sites.
Here’s the overall band/ring look I’m going for (this photo is from a fellow Bee, WishUponStarfish):
Here’s my actual engagement ring, which is moissanite and palladium (MoissaniteCo eng752):
It’s pretty much identical to WishUponStarfish’s. It does have a matching band but I want something a little wider with milgrain. I’d LOVE a moissanite band with the milgrain, but I haven’t found one that looks like any of the diamond bands I like.
OK, so onto the possible bands… the main differences are in the number of stones, height of the band (hoping for a band to slip under my engagement ring) and white gold vs. platinum vs. palladium.
Band #1: Blue Nile.
I’d have to order in platinum (white gold won’t do well against my palladium engagement ring), which is $$$.
Band #2: Allurez – PRO: comes in Palladium! CON: side view looks like the ring is very “tall,” looks less high-quality than the Blue Nile option (maybe just be the photos online though)
Band #3: Brilliant Earth. Most expensive, has to be platinum. My least favorite, I see more prongs between the stones than stones:
So bees, what do you think?
