Any Bee’s out there have, or would like, more than one bridal set? Not just “vacation” sets, but actual sets you switch out as often as you would any other accessory? I like change and I would love to be able to change from white to yellow gold or from my radiant to a classic round or even from a diamond to another stone!
Personally, I would finance this myself. He bought my engagement ring and that’s all he’s really required to do, traditionally speaking.
Any thoughts or experiences? If you have more than one set could we see pics?

@NikkiKillpretty: I have two wedding bands to switch up my look. Does that count? 🙂

Definitely not. One set was a big enough waste of money, I can’t imagine justifying the expense of two. Even if I was terribly rich (which I’m not), I would never do this. There are so many things I would rather have and so many places to go!

@wrkbrk: I like the idea of having two different bands! Especially with the colored band, I could see how you would want something more simple when it might clash with what you are wearing.
Personally, I probably would just stick with my one set, just because I would not want to spend the money.

@ttigger5: Thank you! Needless to say, the ruby/diamond/platinum band was expensive but the other one really was not! 14k rose gold for days when I dont want bling 🙂 🙂

@NikkiKillpretty: I do, although I call it my rhr, sometimes I wear it on the left with a very thin rose gold diamond band, it’s a .42 diamond in platinum Tiffany & Co, I don’t have the band on in this pic:
Here is my original ering/wedding ring 1.20 center diamond in gold w/ diamonds and 1/2 ct diamond yellow gold wedding ring:
Sorry for the huge pics, don’t know how to resize!

On our 1st year anniversary (or christmas… depending on if I find a good sale discount) I’m planning on having a yellow gold wedding band,… so that I can use if my other accesories are yellow gold… I currently have a white gold engagement and wedding band set… 🙂
But I just want the yellow band… no yellow gold engagement ring again…

I will have many sets as time goes on I’m sure, but I turn ANY ring, gemstone/right-hand-ring/serously anything into a bridal set by paring it with a plain band (or not) on my left hand, so every ring I own is part of a “bridal set” :-)! My sapphire RHR is now a “bridal set” because I can wear it with a plain band on my left hand, BOOM, new set! 🙂

@NikkiKillpretty: I like having more than one set, some days I just “feel” like a different look. I lost my ering a long time ago, and have had a bunch of replacements over the years. I have recently “cleaned house” and am down to two “erings” and a bunch of dirrenent bands. I sometimes wear a set on each hand, when I can’t decide what one to wear..

I have two very inexpesive bands. They are identical but one is white gold and one is rose gold. I also like that I can wear them stacked. The WG ring will be my “official” band used during the ceremony but I will switch them out and also wear them together.

For me personally, I think its a waste of money. I think some people get caught up in the glamour and forget about the true meaning behind the rings. I can see having more than one wedding band (not as expensive), but e-rings? no.

I got engaged while still in grad school, and I chose my ring based on where we currently are in our lives. In a few years, I will be getting a new set. My 1 carat RB in its Tacori setting looks great for now, but it’s not going to be blingy enough for me when I’m more established. My family has a few large heirloom stones (2.5-3 carats) and I’m hoping to maybe have one recut and set in a custom setting. I specifically chose a classic simple design for my original e-ring knowing it would be something I’d have forever. When I upgrade, I won’t be giving up my original ring, and I’m really looking forward to being able to choose which set to wear!
My FH recently said I could order a secondary e-ring from Eidel, but the shop was closed! I’ve since thought about it and it seems like a waste of money.
