I would definitely like to have matching bands.  I just want something simple and plain, and I know my SO isn’t picky, but he’s certainly not high-strung, so he’ll agree to the matching plain band idea.

It all depends on you and your SO’s tastes!

I WANTED matching rings BUT my Fiance didn’t. They didn’t have to necessarily look the same but I at least wanted matching metals. I gave in though since he bought me the ring of my dreams, so I have a white gold setting and he has a plaigo yellow gold band. I’m happy, he’s happy, the way it should be ๐Ÿ™‚

We are!  I love that we’re wearing matching bands!!  I will just have a thinner version of the same platinum band and I will be wearing my engagement ring on my right hand.

Ours do not match at all.  Mine’s  a white gold band with diamonds..and his is a tungsten ring that’s silver, black, and blue…

We did consider it but in the end we have very different taste.  So now, that got ruled out real quick.  I went with something I love and so far he hasn’ found “the one” ring wise yet but it won’t look anything like mine based on his taste.

He wants a tungsten thick court band, mine will be narrow domed palladium. He didn’t have an opinion on matching, he was just really excited to have a tungsten ring and I wanted a different one so there was no issue

Our bands will match, and also match my e-ring.

My e-ring is a cathedral-set .97ct solitaire, with celtic knotwork engraving along the band (FILs immigrated from Northern Ireland).

Our wedding bands will be plain, with the same knotwork: mine in white gold to match my e-ring, his in yellow gold sandwiched between white gold on either side, to match his yellow gold family claddagh ring, which all his family wear.

Sort of… the rings we’re leaning toward aren’t identical, but they coordinate with each other — they have the same knotwork pattern around the band, but a different overall design and width.  I’m thinking of the Alhambra Band from Gemvara, which has small gems evenly spaced all the way around it, for me; his ring will likely be the Alhambra Ring, which has a wider band (w/the same knotwork design) and one slightly larger bezel-set center gem instead of the little ones around the band.  (Despite the center gem, the wider band makes the “Ring” look more masculine to me than the “Band”.)

One of the reasons we’re leaning toward Gemvara specifically is that we can customize the metal and the choice of gems on any given ring (not all of their rings have gems, but you can still choose your metal on the ones that don’t).  That way, we could have our own versions of the same ring, or choose similar-but-not-identical rings by the same designer, etc.  For example, my ring will likely be Argentium, but that would be too soft for FI’s job, where he lifts & moves heavy items all day & his hands get a lot of use and abuse.  So his ring will likely be palladium.  It lets us tie things together on a design level without either of us ending up with a metal or gem color that doesn’t work for us.

this was very important for us to have. we wanted the same material for both of them. that’s why i got a plain band (2mm) so it would be exactly the same.

Ours will match exactly and be made from the same piece of metal.  We ordered them from etsy just this week!
It was really important for me that they match and that he was really into them.  So he picked them.  It’s a big splurge for us but so worth it.  I love them.  When I look at his finger I want to see  that familiarity.  It doesn’t match my e-ring at all but I will still wear them together on the same finger.

When I was first looking at rings, I wanted to have matching bands, but then it became clear that what Fiance wanted and what I wanted in bands were rather different. He likes the dark tungsten look and I wanted the band that matched my ering – micropave eternity band. To each their own.

Sort of. Our wedding bands were custom by the same jeweler. The metal type matches and he has a milligrain detail that matches the milligrain detail of my engagement ring. Mywedding band is a diamond band. When u put all 3 together, they match and look like a set.

Ours do!!  I wanted them to match as much as possible, but since Fiance has an allergy our options were limited.  He picked titanium and I figured ‘well I tried my best’ but then found a titanium ring I loved!  I’m actually really happy that we match, I don’t know why it’s just like ‘our’ thing.
