I’m new to this board, and just started planning my wedding. I’m having the hardest time deciding what wedding band style I want. I have a 1 carat round cathedral solitaire, I’ll post a photo below.
If you’d feel comfortable showing me your wedding band/set that would be awesome! Please attach photos below, thanks everyone!

It took me forever to decide on a band. Originally I wanted a plain gold band but they all looked kind of off next to my engagement ring. Ended up falling in love with a band with channel set diamonds. It took me multiple trips to the jeweler and trying on lots of rings to decide!

I have several rings and sets that I switch around.
This is a favorite set: the anniversary ring from our 16th and a diamond and sapphire band my hubby gave me for the Valentine’s Day after we got through his heart attack and bypass surgery. So it’s really sentimental to me. I also have a plain gold band, a diamond half eternity, and a platinum band with flush-set diamonds that I wear wth this ring.
And a set I’ve been wearing a lot lately. Yellow sapphire in antique yellow gold with diamond half eternity.

I went for a simple, classic look- solitaire and band with diamonds.

Here’s my set 🙂 2.7 carat solitaire and a 2.7 carat 5 stone u-prong half eternity band. I always knew I preferred bigger diamonds because of my chunky fingers lol and hubby and I liked the idea of a classic solitaire and eternity band combo…in his words, this way he won’t have to upgrade it anytime soon!

Very, very plain. A solitaire with a plain band. I don’t want to have to take my rings off if I can help it so I wear my set all the time.

Plain solitaire with plain band as well. I’ve had pave rings before and have lost stones even if I have babied the ring. So when it came to my wedding set, nope. I didn’t want to worry about it at all and know that it will last a long time without too much upkeep.

Not married yet so cannot wear this set until June. Lol
But it’s 1 carat solitaire + total 1 carat weight half-eternity band. I will wear the spacer in between for protection

Plain solitaire and plain band.
I work in health care, so I pretty much wear my plain band all the time and e-ring only for nice occasions. If you are active or work with your hands, might be worth it to have a plain band or channel set, which tends to be most secure.
