Hello ladies! A couple requests:
1) Show me your 3-stone rings!
2) Give me ideas for a non-matchy wedding band… I’m looking for something relatively inexpensive and unique…. would love to see what kind band you have!
And a little back-story for those interested…
Fiance picked out the ring all on his own and did a great job! I honestly don’t rememeber if I gave him any direction about what I did not want in regards to style and cut. However, I’m definitely not a traditional bride, and did tell him I didn’t necessarily want a diamond at all. I even played around with the idea of a wooden ring! (http://www.simplywoodrings.com/)
So, anyway. He surprised me with a proposal earlier than I expected and I ended up with a 3 stone diamond ring that looks great on my teeny tiny size 4 finger, BUT have no idea what kind of band I’d want… and since the ring is a little more traditional, I think I’d like something non-traditional. Ideas?

Mine is a 3 stone halo with blue diamond side stones. I thought I would have a really hard time finding a band to go with it but it didn’t take me long at all to find something perfect right at the same shop we found my ring at. There was no band to go with it, but I was hoping to find something with milgrain details so it matched a little bit. What I ended up finding was just a simple 7 stone contour band and I love how they look together.

@MissKemo: I really like your ring! Which is funny, because it’s not my style at all but I think it’s very pretty and unique.
Thanks, eveyone, gorgeous rings all around! It looks like people are going with a 4-8 stone band, or a paved one in general…
I think I will need something very thin, because I have short little fingers and there is just not room for much more than one ring!
Here’s a pic:

If I hadn’t already gotten a pretty traditional wedding band, I would definitely be looking at those Brilliant Earth bands that show up in the ad on the side of my screen all the time! They are so unique and I think they are just beautiful! I don’t experience ring envy much on here….but maybe a little twinge whenever I see those!
Oh….and since I am posting that, better include the ring ;P

I have a 3 stone ring. It’s a yellow sapphire with diamond accents. I ordered my wedding band online. It’s a channel set yellow sapphire band in white gold. The ring is coming from the UK, so I’ve never tried it on before. But I think it’ll look great with my e-ring

What wedding band did you end up getting? My ring is almost the exact same as yours and I experienced the same situation (early proposal, non traditional). I have been looking everywhere for a wedding band that is different. So far all I have found that looks nice is a diamond band but that is very traditional. I really like turquoise and pearls and thought of going with a band with either one of those on it (not both) but the jeweler told me they wouldn’t withstand the test of time so I need ideas!

I picked up this band from a pawn shop, completely separate to my ering. Super duper inexpensive. I can’t recommend keeping ones options open enough. I never would have thought to go there until someone suggested it. Granted I went fairly traditional with my band because I had gone less traditional with my ering.
