I am at the home stretch and my FH and I are choosing our bands. I have always wanted a band with rubies in it but now that I am trying them on, I am not sure that I want rubies in my wedding band or all diamonds. I am looking to do an eternity band, shared prong, about .10 point per diamond/ruby. I like my setting of my e-rin but am not crazy about it (despite having picked it out myself) so not sure if I will change it at some point. I don’t want my band to be all “matchy matchy” with my e-ring and will often wear my band alone b/c of my line of work. Which band would you choose?? band will be about 2ct total
this is my e-ring

I always prefer all diamonds for wedding/engagement but the ruby one is still very beautiful!

really dont like the rubies.. it kinda looks weird to me that they are alternating. i would do either all rubies or all diamonds

I like the diamond band! But if you plan on wearing your band alone I really like the ruby one. I suppose it depends on how traditional you are. If you are more I’d go with all diamond, less then the one with rubies. Either way both are gorgeous! 🙂

I like the diamond one better, but thats me. Maybe you could go for the all diamond one for a wedding band and maybe later when you have kids you could get a similare ring but like an alliance ring were your man can buy you a ruby for each child or special anniversary or something. And woops you have them both;)

I LOVE rubies, but agree with a PP that it looks a little off with the alternating pattern. Would it be possible for you to get it in alternate pairs (ie. diamond-diamond-ruby-ruby-diamond-diamond)? That might help it look a little less like… a candy cane? (Sorry, first thing off the top of my head; I don’t mean to imply that it does look like one!)

I love both!!! lol, can´t really decide! But I´m a fan of the two-kinds-of-stones eternity bands..

I love rubies but I like the pure diamond look.
