I am looking for some creative and beautiful wedding band suggestions! My e-ring is a family heirloom, so I do not plan on wearing it everyday. It has a very delicate (and original! been in the family for 85+ years!) band, and I would like to keep in good shape so I can continue the tradition and pass it on to my kids some day. Since I only plan on wearing the e-ring on special occassions, I am looking to find a wedding band that can stand-alone and doesn’t necessary match my e-ring. I really like the eternity bands (oval, pear, and baguette shape), and half-eternity rings (not sure if that’s an official term). I also like some of the 5 or 3 stone rings. Looking for some pictures/ideas as to neat wedding bands people have found? We will probably be wedding band shopping in 2 months.

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.

I’ve kinda been finding the same thing – that local stores or in-store has more options. I am definitely more of an online shopper, but I’ve really struggled to find something I like/within my specs online so I think I’m going to have to tough it out and head to some stores in person. I’ll try to share a few pictures of ones I’ve liked.

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…

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.
