Oh man, those rings are gorgeous!! I’d go w/ one in a heartbeat. However, I would have one concern, like you, that I wouldn’t be able to fit a band w/it. My ring is oddly shaped and I currently don’t have a band to go w/ mine either, but it doesn’t bother me.

I wouldn’t worry about it going out of “style”, it’s your engagement ring!

I was engaged before and had a ring like that middle ring.  I LOVED it.  I have a more traditional ring now that I love as well; however, you should go with what you love.  If the unique ring suits you and your fiance, then go for it.  You can always get a custom wedding band made to match the ring.

I think they are interesting looking. As far as a wedding band to match, you might have to get one custom-made. I would ask a jeweler about that specificly they could be much more helpful than I could.

And as far as timeless – honestly, I say get whatever you like. Your taste *might* change a little, but chances are if you love something you won’t change your mind in 20 years. It will be your engagement ring & wedding band, you will be so used to it by that time that I doubt you would rethink it. Just my opinion.

Basically, I think you should get whatever you like. And I think that those rings are unique and fun.

They are not my taste. But it is what YOU like and want to wear for the rest of your life.

Those rings are beautiful and quite different from what I have seen before. I think that if this is the style that you want, then you should go for it. I think you are correct, it will be hard to find a wedding band to fit next to it, but maybe if you could have something custom made, that would work. I had to have my wedding band custom made and it cost less to custom make than to get one that was similar to it, but didn’t fit like I wanted. The first though of a band for the rings you are showing us would be to have an open twisted design. That doesn’t come out right, but I will try to explain it. The band would be a wrap, open at the top, and twisted to fit on either side of your ering.

that first one is ….WOW !

I wouldn’t worry about the timelessness. All jewllery is beautiful and rarely becomes outdated.

I would go for it if I wanted a piece as unique as I am and simply wear it on your right hand after the wedding and your band on your left? Unless you can afford to custom make a band?

You should get what you like. You can always get a custom wedding band or just wear them on different hands. If in 20 years, you change your mind, the diamond is the expensive part…you could always change the band.

They aren’t my style and I don’t know that I would consider them timeless.  But like others said, if it’s you and you love it, who cares what others think!

Ooh, I can kind of answer this!

My engagement ring looks a lot like this:

Except mine was custom-made of palladium, with a bridge under the diamond.  So although the band itself isn’t moebius-twisted like your examples, it’s not exactly a ring that will sit flush against a plain wedding band. The jeweler we’re using has a design mocked up for a matching band that is pretty much shaped the same as the engagement ring, except without the stone.  When I wear them together, the wedding band will essentially lock into shape of the engagement ring.  It’s a pretty neat effect.

 

So yes, I would ABSOLUTELY get one of those rings, then look into having a band custom-made.  I think they’re timeless enough (especially the first and last ones), and they’re gorgeous.  Plus, they’re your style, and (IMO) that’s what matters most.

Edited to add: I wouldn’t worry about them sticking up too much either.  They all look fairly low, but if you’re especially concerned about snagging your ring on things, look into some of the nicer titanium tension-settings; with no prongs sticking out, the top of the ring is smooth enough that I never catch mine on anything.

I was going to get a ring like that, but then decided to go with something a bit more traditional. A wedding ring is forever and will possibly be past down in your family, so I wanted mine to be traditional and timeless. Remember you can get a fun ring like the ones you pictured above anytime- anniversays, holidays, etc.  All three rings are beautiful, I especially love the 3rd one.

1. It will be a greater challenge to find a wedding ring that “matches” but rings can be custom-made. You also don’t HAVE to wear your rings on the same hand if you don’t want to and/or the e-ring can double as the wedding ring.

2. ALL rings that have some sort of design feature (ie, not a diamond solitaire) will probably date a little, but like everything else in fashion, they’ll probably look a little dated 15 years from now, and then rise back into the “timeless” category. I think you need to go with what you like and not worry as to how it’s received in 20 years because you can’t really predict that.

I love the first and second ones, so unique and pretty! I’m not worried if my engagement ring is outdated in a few years, it’s MINE and I love it!
