    @hidingpearl:  I like pave, with pave but thin pave between 1.5 to 2 mm. I’m all about the bling. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I have both pave ering and wedding bands…like Pp’s I love the bling too:) My advice would be to try on the different combos in your poll and take pics.

    My two cents – if you like bling, get the pave band and pave e-ring, but also get a plain band too.  A plain band isn’t very expensive, and it’s not like you have to get a warranty on it or worry about it.  Like 80 bucks on Amazon can get you a decent one.  Practicality is a good thing ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have a very thin pave eternity band to wear with my split shank pave halo, but honestly, many if not most days i just wear a plain white gold band.  If I go out I’ll put my e-ring on with the plain band.  I just do too many things – cleaning, gardening, running, cooking, etc – to keep my good set on all the time.

    My e-ring has pave on it (3/4 eternity), and the heirloom wedding band we will use has two rows of pave along the top.  I would have preferred a plain wedding band (or one that matches my e-ring), but the vintage ring has such a great relationship behind it that to not use it would be a tragedy.  I won’t mind wearing it when the time comes.

    The thing that worries me about pave bands is how easy it could be to lose a diamond from them, and how much that might cost to fix.  I echo the PP who said to get a backup plain band, especially if you do anything with your hands that might make losing a diamod easier.  If you like bling, go for pave, but backup plans are never a bad thing.  I’m not a huge bling girl, so I have a plain ering band, and will probably have a plain band of some sort, myself.

    Well, my ering has pave, so I will be shopping for a wedding band that is similar.  Can never have too much sparkly in one’s life… ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love the look of a plain thin solitaire with pave wedding ring.


    Unfortunately I didn’t realize this until AFTER having my pave engagement ring for 4 months.

    I was so focused on the design of the engagement ring that a wedding band beside it didn’t factor too much in the selection of setting.

    People are definitely going to be split on this question. Personally, I love my plain solitaire and pave wedding band combo! I feel like the plain band makes the center stone stand out so it doesn’t get lost amongst all the sparkle. And now for a gratuitous photo of my rings =)

    Fan of the pave!  Here is my platnium set.  Sorry so big, WB won’t let me resize right now for whatever reason!
