Hi there Beez,
I am really leaning towards an eternity band or plain band as an engagement ring. Please share yours!
Maybe this in rose gold with rubies:
Or this one as is:
My SO is not too keen on the idea of a plain ring. It is just a practical option for me, if I want to wear my engagement ring every day. I am always busy with my hands so I need something that will not get in the way. I really truly want to wear my e-ring every day, but I know myself if it is a big (doesn’t even have to be big) sticky-out ring I will probably only wear it when we go out. Why spend all that money then if it’s just going to be in the safe all the time?…
Thanks for reading!

The first picture has the two bands I wear most of the time. Both are half eternity. I don’t like high settings for day to day life either! I just got a moissanite solitaire to wear when I feel like being more blingy. The second one is a band from James Allen that I think I might buy for myself to add another option. I love the interest the twist adds without any stones.

ad85: I love your set! I said the same thing; we could get a solitaire, for an anniversary or birthday later, that I could wear when we go out. But the ring we will be getting engaged with should be something I would be able to wear every day. I am very sentimental you see. I am thinking maybe an eternity band for an engagement ring and the plain band for the wedding ring; I like that idea a lot. Love the rose gold band.
The ‘rope’ ring is very beautiful, symbolic of a couple coming together. Love it!
This is lovely too:

I love her ring! Have you seen Audrey Hepburn’s rings? She had a diamond eternity band and then a yellow gold, and rose gold band to mix and match with her outfits. It’s really pretty!
Oh, or Jennifer Garner wears, or used to wear…:( a few stacked eternity rings. Her’s were really gorgeous!

Here is my 1mm yellow gold band.
I am a huge fan of Princess Letizia of Spains set.

I love the idea and almost went with one of these options myself! They are all from bario-neal.com. I think pairing a band with a little detail with a plain wedding band would be very pretty.

Yess, an eternity ring thread! I want an eternity as my engagement ring too, and we picked a custom one out together. This is the try-on pic after we got it from the jewelers to make sure it fits before he proposes!

Baguette eternities are one of my favorites, although when Tom Cruise wore one I felt odd about admiring his, lol.
I love bezel set eternities and especially five- or seven- stone bands. I favor the five stone bezel set a-band received for our 12th wedding annviersary and if I had to choose one and only one that might edge some of my other lovelies off the podium. It’s comfy and lovely and blings just fine but not too much. Oh, I’m so torn about it considering how much I love my prong set rings, too. (Pictured below on my pointer finger; left to right below is the main set, 3rd anniv., 12th anniv., 15th anniv.)

I’m currently stacking these two rose “gold” rings from amazon about $20 each but I wanted to test drive them before buying the real deal.

Low profile rings and bands are so practical, and have a really nice understated elegance in my opinion! 🙂 Where I live the traditional engagement ring is actually a plain gold band, so I really love that look! All of the examples above are so beautiful! My ring is not quite a “band”, however it is very petite and low profile, and I am so happy with that choice – it feels so comfortable to wear every day! So I highly recommend going this route 😀

Where I’m from the couple exchanges engagement rings which have traditionally been plain bands of the same width and material for both. Nowadays the materials vary and some might like them to have diamonds. You also see some women with e-rings more resembling the American/British tradition of engagement rings instead of getting a plain band to match their fiancés.
The above ring is my engagement ring. Might sound funny, but it was actually quite fancy and expensive for an engagement ring for the modest ring culture we tend to have and especially for the age we were (both 22).

My ring is rose gold half eternity, 2 mm width. I like how it doesn’t even feel like I’m wearing a ring at all, and it’s a good width if I want to stack another ring in the future.
