@SuperKate: I agree! you should get any band that pleases you. yes, Tiffany is good quality, but a lot of their price is marked up due to branding. you are paying extra for the name. you could get just as good quality of band elsewhere.

but if your Fiance insists on a Tiffany band and you like their bands too, then you are a very lucky girl! I wanted a Tiffany band (becauase I liked the style and I couldn’t find a replica anywere else) but both my Fiance and I said no – due to the price.

I am wondering this too. My matching band at Tiffany’s would be a few grand which is a little more than I’d like to spend on the band, considering how much the ring cost! But I do want them to match. If I can’t find a matching band (I have the novo) elsewhere, I will get my band from Tiffany.

@MrsMoksha:

 

Good points, but I had a hard time with the wedding band. If you go the plain route. (for example) the kife edge doesn’t always* coincide with the width of the band (if your into that aspect)  Then you have to ‘worry’ about the lucida etc etc and their width’s and if you feel comfortable etc etc.

As for their gemstone bands try them out. Some women don’t mind gaps and some do. 

But really, go with what YOU want. In the end you are wearing it. So try on what you like and take a good look at them. Have fun with it all! 

 

{FYI:} I chose a shared prong wedding band because I wanted it to be distinguishable from my solitaire, but somewhat regret getting the shared prong because It CAN snag little fibers of my sweaters and such (not much-I heard you can have it “tightened”) Anyway, which brings me to another point. 

Tiffany’s customer service is impeccable! I LOVE it (Although as I have been traveling, it seems like that varies. But I know where I go back to and he’s perfection) 

Also, theres nothing wrong with going with someone else for your band. Again you’ll be wearing it! 

*The Knife Edge depending on the size of your diamond and/or band can vary in width

**Another thing; depending on the complication of your band you may want to have a great store to back it up. More intricate, More problematic.

I didn’t personally care if my band came from the same company as my e-ring, but we ended up buying the matching Tacori band for convenience reasons in terms of needing to get it resized and what not.  (Tacori has a lifetime guarantee on the rings and will resize and fix anything on the bands for free).  So if something happened to my set, it would be annoying to send my e-ring to one place and then find another place to fix my band.  So that was mostly the deciding factor.  We definitely paid more for my ring than if we’d found a comparable band made by someone else, but we paid for the convenience of it.

@FutureMrsFord1087: My Fi proposed with a Tiff&Co engagement ring, too! I went through this same debate that you are going through. I was pretty close to getting a band from Blue Nile. We both hmmed and hahed about it and made lots of trips to to Tiff&Co to look at bands. We ended up getting both our bands at Tiff&Co. I would have been perfectly happy with a different jeweler’s band but we both just really liked the micro pave band at Tiff and had budgeted for it already. I think you should get what you like! One thing we both agreed is that we’ll have these rings forever so we wanted to get something we really liked.

@FutureMrsFord1087: If you don’t go with Tiffany, go with another top person in rings.. you wont find the same quality in off-brand rings and they wont match. I have a Tacori and tried trying on no-name rings and the craftsmanship just isn’t there (90% of the time- there are exceptions to every rule), next to such a nice ring, you will notice the difference.

Mine is a Tiffany e-ring and for me, I have to get the matching band. I know that I could get a similar one for a fraction of the cost, but for me, it wouldn’t be the same.

If he wants to pay for a matching Tiffany band then let him.
