I got engaged in November and still have not purchased my wedding band yet! I initially thought I wanted this one:

 

But then saw this one and fell in love:

 

I’ve also considered this one:

 

But the middle one is my favorite so that’s probably the one I’m going to end up going with. 🙂

Ive was looking for about a month. I tried the one on I bought a couple times. I loved it when I first tried it on, but I am the type of person who has to try everything on to make a final decision. So I finally bought it, because if I didn’t I would go crazy shopping for one, I would probably go to the mall at least twice a week to try rings on! Lol, I’m nuts, what can I say.

I don’t have a picture yet cuz my band is getting resized all I have is a cell phone pic:(

I got engaged on new years (jan 1st) of 2011… I didn’t find a wedding band until February 2012!!  It took me FOREVER to find one I liked.

I got engaged last February and just now got our bands about a month and a half ago. Here is mine! I have a .50 ideal princess cut and the band is .50 carat with 16 round brilliants and it is also a half eternity!

ETA: It was very hard for me to find a band because my diamond  in my e-ring is a D VVS2.  Most of the bands in the stores looked very yellow in comparision. We wanted to go to the same guy who made my ring but a band with the specs I wanted it would cost us about $1100. No way. We found this lovely at Zales in the clearance for $700! We got it for like $630 or something like that? It’s E VS1 (I believe can’t remember exactely but it’s close!)

Um, all together 2 1/2 years. But I still had one within a couple weeks (that I got married with), and another a few months later. Then my final and forever one(s) after nearly 2 1/2 years.  I hope your search is much shorter!

It took me almost a year to find a wedding band I actually liked.  Depending on the color of your diamond, it can get complicated as the average is an H or a J that I saw or at least told about.  That is why I just went with colored diamonds.

We started looking seriously in mid-March, and I just decided for sure today on a plain gold band. It came down to the plain gold band and a milgrain contour band with diamonds. The milgrain band was beautiful, but the color of the gold was off just a little bit (yellower than my engagement ring) — plus it was MONDO expensive. The plain gold band just looks *right* with my ring in a way that the others I’ve tried don’t.

I’ve always known I wanted a plain band.  I didn’t know which width I wanted, so I orded 3 cheapie bands off of ebay to try them on.  I was torn between 2, and set up a poll on weddingbee.  Within minutes everyone’s responses told me the answer.  I haven’t ordered my final band yet, but it’ll be a standard comfort fit 2mm palladium band, which a few places offer.  I’ll probably go through eweddingbands.
