I have a marquise diamond that is set very low, so will either need a pointed wedding band or one that is open in the front. For those of you who have pointed bands, are they pokey/ do they get in the way? I think they’re beautiful but I am having a hard time deciding! Please post pics and tips of chevron bands and open bands!

I’m not a ring pro (at ALL) but I have a chevron wedding band, but I just have a round bezel solitaire so the point is much smaller than yours would be. One issue with it is that they spin in different directions all the time so they don’t line up. It drives me nuts and I often just spin the chevron to the back and wear them with a gap. I’m eventually going to get the setting on mine changed so that i can wear it flush, or have them fitted together.
I’d talk to your jeweler about your options with that particular setting! See if you can have it raised in that one spot or if you can have the chevron and ring fitted together somehow so they don’t spin out of wack.

I think the open band would look better. It would sort of balance the ring and create a thickness for the band instead of making even longer. I’ve seen some really pretty open bands on etsy. I’m about to make the purchase myself actually haha. As soon as I know for sure which one I want!

Thanks guys! @greeneyedbee, let me know which one you pick! I’ve been looking on Etsy as well. My only concern with open bands is that it might look weird if I wear it alone. Thoughts?

ppierce2019: I’m surprised your marquise isn’t poking you as it is, just now? When I had a square head on a ring my parents gave me, it was digging into my finger all.the.time. I loved it, but it was not comfortable to wear. I also had a trillion set opal from an ex, and I could not wear it with the tip pointing at my wrist.
All that is to say, that I think the open-ended wedding bands are super cool, and I’d do that if I had a ring that suited.

First marriage I had Marquise and never got poked.
