I can’t believe how elegant those look together! I normally like eternity wedding bands too, but this pic reminds me that a metal band can look just as classy and beautiful by itself. And my parents’ wedding rings are yellow gold with milgrain edges, so I am definitely biased in favor of your ring πŸ™‚ Great choice!!

I love the look of both your E-Ring and this W-Band… and they go together very very well.

I went out looking at W-Bands for the first time today…

It was an interesting experience.  As much as the Salespeople tried to sell me a lovely Diamond Eternity Ring, I truly think it isn’t for me right now (lol, unless I can convince Mr TTR that I actually need 2 Wedding Rings)

My E-Ring as it is has a lot of bling going on, so I am more thinking a more understated W-Band that I can wear constantly and not take off…

So more “traditional” (but not too plain / boring… as you said).  My E-Ring is very wide, aprox 10 mm… and I was thinking originally that my W-Band could be as thin as 2mm or less.  But after trying a couple on, I’ve determined, I am most happy with a 2.5mm (although Mr TTR kind of likes a 3mm).  I’m not one for milgrain, so thinking my “feature” will be a more rounded / domed band, comfort fit…

The one thing I will say for the Diamond Eternity Bands are they are thicker / higher, so they stand up better beside my E-Ring… that is the one thing I didn’t find yet, something with some height to it.  I’ll keep looking but if I don’t find something that works, guess I’ll have to have my W-Band custom made to compliment my very distinct E-Ring

The other thing I have to consider is metal… My E-Ring is 18K White Gold, and although it is lovely, I know that 18K White Gold won’t stand up well long term… and I don’t intend to take my W-Band off very often (part of the reason I want a plainer band to begin with)… so it has to be tough enough for 24/7×365 wear.  Therefore thinking now that I either want 10K White Gold or Platinum for it.  Which means I may have to shop around… not everyone carrys Platinum, and the price difference is substantial… the clerk in the Jewellery Store today quoted me $ 1250 for one in Platinum, and $ 250 for one in 10K White Gold (same ring, same design)… can see why folks are attracted to the Diamond Eternity Rings… they fit right into the middle of that range.

@6598731ssfse3:  I haven’t looked at (seen) Palladium altho I’ve heard of it… lol, more Wedding Research must be done.

Now that you mention the details about your ring, I’ve gone back for another look… yes very nice, and it does sit a bit higher.  Can I ask where you got it… as I said, I’m on the hunt.

*Just measured my own ring the band is thick, it sits aprox 3.5mm high (the feature diamond sits then again above that)

Beautiful set. You are right the milgrain gives your ring that little something extra.

I had a 3 stone ring where the side stones were much smaller than yours and I could never find a wedding band that looked right with it.  If my ring looked like yours I would have done the plain band just like you did.  Your set looks great!
