I’d just get a plain 18k gold band to match your e ring until you can afford a moissy band (maybe for an anniversary gift in a few years). Silver will tarnish and a 9 or 10k gold will wear down the 18k gold since it is softer. eBay and Amazon have some plain 18k gold bands under $100 some new and some preowned.

dw4518 :  why don’t you go try a white gold plain band in store then buy online? My fiancé bought one off this site, there are a few 18k gold options. https://www.overstock.com/Jewelry-Watches/Womens-18k-White-Gold-Traditional-Wedding-Band/14220733/product.html?recset=845d651f-c398-485b-8e1d-644c81abb98d&refccid=EQ3AAEOOOT4ZCICGKWTUR446D4&searchidx=1&recalg=63&recidx=1&keywords=18k%20white%20gold%20band&refinement=

I know this is probably an unpopular response, but I have worn rhodium plated silver rings off and on for a year or so on other fingers, so for a temporary and inexpensive option it’s not bad. If they tarnish you can polish them with polishing cloths so they look shiny and new again. The cloths are cheap.

dw4518 :  was at h.samuels and I think their plain 18k wedding bands are less than £300. Might be wrong. Try checking out online. Googled a bit, cheapest plain 18k white gold band 2mm is less than £200. What’s your budget? xx

dw4518 :  I totally agree! I’m not a ring person, and wasn’t sure I even wanted a ring so I bought a few to test drive. I got a CZ ring off etsy for $25 that I love and I wonder if I should just use it for my wedding ring!
