I found amazing bands in local stores—stores that don’t put pictures of their entire collections. There is a GORGEOUS 5k rose-cut diamond band in our local jewelers that I really lusted after…but 5k was more than I wanted to spend for just a band, on top of my ering.

There are a lot of options online. I think for a stand alone band, you really don’t want an overly narrow band. I’d look for something between 3 and 5 mm for it to have some presense. My mom, size 6.5 ring, wears a 8 mm wide filagree band that is lovely. Eternity style bands are pretty, but they can be impossible or near impossible to re-size. Same if it is a pave set band. You can go with a partial hoop (1/2 or 3/4) to make future re-sizing easier.

Here’s a few I like (but, not all seller’s I’d recommend).

A LOT of women I know just wear a wedding band. Whether they worry about the diamond scratching a baby, or they worry about it when bsking, cleaning, etc., they end up with just the plain band. You certainly won’t look odd for just wearing a band – whatever choice you make.

You’ll want a band that stands on its own – I would suggest something with a bit of engraving or other interesting features. If you choose a band with a diamond (or several diamonds), it would look like a wedding band or an engagement ring. A couple ideas below…

newbiebee1984 :  I would also say, if you love the heirloom ring, wear it! I inherited two rings when a family member died – one was her e-ring from 1920, the other was from 1870 that she inherited from her aunt. I had them cleaned and appraised. They remade all the prongs to be sure the diamond was secure. They are both beautiful, well made rings, and I wear them daily. I’d have your ring checked by a jeweller, then you can wear it all the time. It’s a shame for a ring to sit unused for 20-30 years.
