so hang on, you’re going with a pear and an oval, both fancy/yellow, and want to know if you’d go for a pave band, is that correct?

I think you have enough visual interest without the pave band, IMO. Much more stark and classic without it.

I agree, I think the two center stones are enough visual interest, especially with the color difference.  You don’t want too too much going on to the point where your eyes don’t know what to look at.  I’d stick with a solid band and then you could maybe get a pave RHR or wedding band.  Love the fancy yellow, so gorgeous!

ah, ok. If you’re wanting to match a pave engagement band with a pave wedding band, that does make sense – I personally think it’s harder to match a pave wedding band with a plain engagement ring band.

But, if you like the idea of a bit of extra interest in your wedding ring, you could consider a lacie – there’s LOADS of info on the boards here if you search that name, and I got mine with little peach sapphires to match my engagement ring – you could get little yellow and white stones to tone in with yours!

Here’s a pic of mine – it’s just a LITTLE bit more sparkle than plain gold 🙂

I would skip the pave. With 2 large center stones, you can barely see the band anyway. Pave would make it too busy and take away from the uniqueness of the ring.

I would, however, match it with a pave band.

The two stone ring is very unique and striking on it’s own. I’d do plain (or very very simple) bands to match. You don’t want the ring equivalent of some of the estate homes I see – where people had the resources to go for all the elements they liked (so they did) and the result is too much of everything everywhere. Restraint is how we get elegance- a beautiful set that flows together beautifully and well.

No pave for my taste. The different cut stones are the main event and pave would take away from that.  Also I agree with pp,  plain/simple wedding band with this style but try on everything to see what clicks.

Congratulations on such a beautiful ring. Please post a picture when you receive the ring.

Most definitely not pave, those are beautiful stones on their own . And l like your idea of a plain substantial wedding ring, not pave either. It will look great IMO.

I love the two stone look and think it’s very striking on its own.  I think adding pave to the band would be too much and take away from the focal point of the two main stones.  Beautiful idea for a ring and good luck!
