@babybluz: ‘Bueller, bueller’ haha, I love that movie.

One thing you could do is have an inscription on the outside.

My bf and I were considering:

‘I am my beloved’s and my beloved’s is mine.’

Many jewellers can do this for a resonable price πŸ™‚

I got a solitare enhancer that was my wedding band. It surrounds my solitare and some people use it as a add on but I used it as my wedding band.  I think it’s sort of symbolic, how my wedding band and ering became one.  I could have gone for something with more diamond or a larger band but I didn’t want that. I wanted it to be simple.

Oh, they also go by the name ring wrap, too.

@ttn133: Hey your ring wrap is really cool…I’ve never seen one “in action” before!  It looks like a totally different ring!

You could do a slim 2mm (or larger) milgrain band.  They are lovely, particularly in the smaller widths.   Look up “antique wedding bands” or “vintage wedding bands”.  In the 20’s, 30’s, and 40’s they had some beautifully detailed, engraved bands with flowers and designs on them! 
Some of those were as narrow as 1.5mm, so they are very delicate (or you can find wider versions also).  You can still find vintage bands for sale, or you can buy a new one from a company like ArtCarved.

I’m doing a plain white gold band but it will have my FI’s fingerprint inside. There’s a great shop on Etsy that does it called Fabuluster, if you’re interested πŸ™‚

I like the look of my round solitaire just fine with a plain band, but I think the plain doesn’t stand so well on its own. So the ones I have it narrowed down to that aren’t too flashy are both Tiffany’s styles (but we’ll probably get them custom from the local jeweler where he got the engagement ring).

Bezet – http://www.tiffany.com/Shopping/Item.aspx?fromGrid=1&sku=GRP02696

Elsa Peretti – http://www.tiffany.com/Shopping/Item.aspx?sku=GRP03340 (there are similar styles at the bottom of the page, with/without a single small diamond, or the diamond with/without the curve)

While I really like the curve of the EP style, I think it’ll be a pain to keep centering it, so I’m leaning to the Bezet just for practicality.

@babybluz: What about something like this? I think that it would definitely compliment the round solitare while still giving you some sparkle.

Here are a couple ideas:

 

 

No diamonds, but adds some subtle detail.

Here is a picture of my ring and my grandmother’s wedding band. I also have an eternity band that I will wear as well.. but I think a plain band and solitaire are classic!

@babybluz: I went with a plain band for princess cut solitare. I love the simplicity of it too.
