@toady your ring set is very similar to mine, do the diamonds go all around your band or do they stop in the front. Good taste!

@alohawedding — I love the look of yours, but as I was researching that option, I heard that the diamond of the band hitting the pongs of the e-ring would ruin the ring over time (since diamond is harder than platinum/gold).  I definitely don’t want my wedding band to dent my engagement ring! 

Have you had/heard of that issue?  (I saw it on forums at pricescope.com — they seem to know everything that’s diamond related!)

Apparently soldiering both rings together solves that issue, but I know that I’d be wearing just the ring by itself at times, so don’t want to do that either πŸ™

@CCSR …I know this was posted to @alohawedding, but since I also have a pronged wedding ring I thought I would share.

Our jeweler stated that YES, this is an issue, even for metal against metal rubbing together over years. He also said (like you suggested) that soldiering both rings together solves that issue.

 @PinkSparkleGrl, Thanks!  I’m a no for that then — I know I can’t always wear my engagement ring as FH will be starting a new job that will send us overseas quite a bit, so depending on the country, I can’t really sport a big diamond around. 

I love the look of it though, but I think I’m leaning towards the scattered diamond band…  We’ll see!

I found the absolutely perfect band to go with my solitaire wedding band!  Minutes later I found out it costs $4,000!!!  Scratch that idea…  But if any of you can afford it, the Lace Collection rings from Michael B are gorgeous:

And I looked all over the place for something similar, and no luck…  If you find something like this, please share.

@cakegal Those are similar!  It’s only in white gold though, and my ering is platinum — I heard my ering will destroy a gold band if I put them together πŸ™

They are shown in white gold but can be ordered in platinum. The prices will be a little higher, but not as high as the Michael B!
