we have not picked out wedding bands yet.  i am not sure if i want a plain band or a band with channel diamonds to match my e-ring.

we are getting married on a saturday night before sundown, so we had to find a reform rabbi to marry us.  at our last meeting with her, i asked her to remind me about the rules for the wedding bands at the ceremony.  she said she will marry us in whatever bands we choose as our wedding bands.  she would rather us use our actual bands that have meaning than buy a cheap ring to meet the requirements.  i do have a plain gold band from my grandmother but it has no sentimental value to me, so i’m happy to be able to use whatever we will be wearing for hopefully the rest of our lives.

@nawella:  I love my plain band! We are fairly traditional so I knew I would get a plain band. For the ceremony it was placed on my right index finger, then I switched it after.

This is the ring I fell in love with; it will be the only one I wear due to its thickness.  I asked my (Conservative) rabbi if it fulfilled halakhic requirements and he said it did because the requirement is the object of value, not its specific form.  I do totally support the reason we developed that practice – to protect the woman from being duped – but it wasn’t one I felt I needed to hold on to given the economic realities of our time. My husband to be did end up selecting a yellow gold, Euro-comfort-fit band for his ring, which is what he wanted.

@nawella:  Thank you! I loved the “cursive” lettering as well. My fiance is a Sabra, so I loved how the metal and stones represent the Israeli flag.

 

There are times when people ask me to see my ring and then I can see their shocked look when there’s not some kind of diamond in it, but I don’t care. Get the solid gold band if it’s what you want! I think it’s a great way to honor our traditions.

We got these for the ceremony.  Mine is much thinner than his but they match and I love that. We are both getting “blingy” bands as well.  I like that I have the option to change up my ring based on what I am doing or how I am feeling.  I have no doubt I will wear both alot.

My engagement ring is above it. I figured I might as well wear both. Both I love that I went traditional with the wedding band.

our reform rabbi told us to get solid bands without any stones, which is what we wanted anyway – my e-ring is pretty ornate already and Fiance wanted something really simple. so these will be ours.
