(Closed) Just curious: Do you and your husband have "matching" wedding bands?

    Yes. We have His & Hers versions of the same band.

    Sort of. We used the same metal.

    Not at all. We each went with our own style.

    Totally different in design. But the white gold in my FIs band came from the same “batch” of my old jewellery as the white gold that my rings made from. It’s something that we know ties them together. But outwardly they are our own designs

    I don’t think our’s could get any more different. Not even the same metal.

    aclockworklilac :  we’re getting matching bands – both plain, platinum bands. i thought about a blingy band for a bit, but i didn’t really like any of them with my ering (i have an oval with a halo, and the halo seemed to cover up most of the band). i tried on the plain platinum band and loved the look…and the thought that we would have matching bands hit a sentimental spot in my heart. my parents have matching wedding bands, so i grew up with the idea. i do plain to get a blingier anniversary band at some point that i can wear solo or stacked.

    My Fiance is using his late father’s wedding ring, which is yellow gold. I was originally going to have a white gold split band (to complement my platinum engagement ring) but I have very thin fingers and it just looked too chunky. Our jeweller suggested trying a yellow or rose gold split band, and both actually looked really nice with my ering. I ended up going with yellow gold because I do have some other yellow gold jewellery but I don’t wear rose gold. So our wedding bands are the same metal (by coincidence really) but they aren’t a “His & Hers” design.

    Both white gold, but mine is thin pave and his is brushed finish with satin edges. I think they go together the way classic stuff tends to, but they don’t “match.”

    Yes but I gave him a free choice. He fancied the heft of platinum (my non-sterling silver jewellery is all platinum) he tried rings on in Tiffany and De Beer and chose to get the thicker man’s version of my De Beers Classic plain platinum band, – which is the same line as my engagement ring. 

    Had he wanted yellow gold with bells on I’d have bought it for him.

    Nope!    We’d originally ordered a dark titanium band with a blue interior (I have a white gold/sapphire/diamond set and we wanted to “undercover” match).   It came in and was far too big, so we returned it intending to replace it with the same one.  

    However…

    We were unexpectedly offered an heirloom. My husband (of 10 days! Woo!) felt a huge connection with his maternal grandfather who passed away a few years ago.  When we were offered his wedding band by hubby’s grandma, we couldn’t say no.   It’s a lovely yellow gold carved band.    It’s truly an honour to have a piece of his family history, and his grandparents had a long & happy marriage. 

    Since hubby is a chef & caterer we’ll be getting him a silicone band for work, but he’ll be wearing Papa’s ring otherwise. 🙂

    We have the same metal and designer.  He really wanted the metals to match, which is why we have all rose gold.  I was originally wanting yellow gold and he steered me into the rose golds because that’s what he wanted.  I love it now.

    Nope.  I have a rose gold set and he has a tungsten band.  Our wedding bands are similar in the sense that they are both plain domed bands, but different metals.

    We both have platinum rings, but they have nothing else in common other than the metal.

    Not at all. My fiance’s ring is made out of brass and wood and mine is platinum and diamond. I figured since we only look at our own all the time, that it should be exactly what we want.

    aclockworklilac :  We both have white gold bands, but his is plain and mine has channel set diamonds like my e-ring band. I wouldn’t have minded if he wanted something else, but I do like that we both have the same color bands 🙂
