Five-year anniversary is coming up, and my husband is on board with adding a band to my wedding set. 🙂 Since we were married in May, I love the idea of including emeralds in the new band. But I’m torn because I do still like the classic look of an all-diamond band. I’d wear the new band at the bottom, and it wouldn’t be soldered to the existing set. Here are four photos. Top two are my existing rings (soldered together). Bottom two are the rings I’m torn between. Note the accent stones on the emerald ring are diamonds. Please help me decide! ALSO, please post pics if you have a colored gem wedding band! 🙂

While emeralds are beautiful, they are generally highly included stones that are oiled to enhance their appearance and stability. I wouldn’t wear natural emeralds as a routine, simply because I don’t think emeralds hold up well to every day wear. However, you didn’t ask about that; sorry if you already know and are considering it anyway. My preference is always for a diamond band that I can wear almost 24/7 because I never remember to change up my rings!

I vote emerald because green is my favourite colour. I think it will add interest to your set with a pop of colour

Well what did u choose? I was going to post a similar thread when I found yours! Our 20th is next May and we have thought of exchanging bands (he needs a new ring anyway) with emeralds in them. I have been eyeing one I love but worry the green will detract from my current set. If u went with emeralds I’d love to see pics!

I am going to bump this old thread and see if anyone has any bands with emeralds they’d like to share. I am really trying to decide if I think the emeralds will add character to my set. Or if I think they will be a distraction.
