- Wedding: June 2015
Hi guys! This is my first post ever and I was hoping you might help me?
I’m at a total loss as to what wedding band to get.
First let me give you a little backstory… My fiance proposed about a month ago with his grandmother’s ring. (1st pic below) It was not really my style and way too tiny so we decided to remount the diamond in a different setting. – WOW, our styles are different! I wanted something with engraving on the shank or small diamonds going around the band or something like that. I didn’t want a halo setting or anything, I just wanted a lil sumthn sumthn, if you know what I mean. HE wanted plain plain plain plain band, a simple solitare setting. Skipping over the negotiation details, I told him I was only okay with a completely simple engagement ring if I could get more detail on the wedding band.
SO! The 2nd pic is of the engagement band we ended up going with. (It’s just a google-search pic bc mine hasn’t come back yet. I guess mine was custom-made because its in Rose Gold.)
^^^ My original e-ring. 1/4c solitare stone. Its hard to tell from the pic but its got a very very narrow shank, especially on the bottom (it narrows as it goes around the finger) and it has a grove on each side that you can kind of make out.
^^^^^ The setting above is almost exactly like what I got…
#1 ^^^I like this kind of engraved band but it might look really weird next to such a plain, “square-ish” band??? This was one of the kind of bands I wanted my e-ring to be like but he wouldn’t go for it on the e-ring.
#2 ^^^This one has some potential because it’ll look very similar from the top, but gives me a little unexpected detail from the side. But I wonder if its still too plain for my style. I’m not glamorous or anything, I just like detail!
#3 ^^^ I’ve always liked this kind and I think it covers a lot of bases. I think its a good cross between simple and traditional… I like the little beading on the outside edge, but I wonder if that beading is too much? But I love the beading… but see #5 too
#4 ^^^Or there’s this one… Probably one of my least favorite…
#5 ^^^ This one is a lot like #3 but without the beading on the outside…
#6 ^^^ This one I think is suuuuper cute but I worry it doesn’t go with the e-ring… But Maybe? Maybe because the edges are clean and “square,” it might go?
What do you guys think??!! Comments and voting appreciated!!!
