@lismo:  I love that second band you posted!  I’m kind of like you, when I first got engaged I assumed that my wedding band would match my e-ring.  But when I started trying bands on, I realized I wanted something entirely different!  First I looked at this diamond and sapphire band:

and then I saw this twisted wedding band and fell in love!

My wedding band itself is traditional but together with my engagement ring is a bit unusual. My engagement ring band has channel set diamonds so most people would get a channel set diamond wedding band but instead I chose to get a prong setting diamond band. Looks like this:

I love the twisted band you posted, very unique!

@lismo:  the beauty of a solitaire is that you can pair it with pretty much anything and it’ll look good.  Either one of those bands will look beautiful.

I’ve considered a micropave band and plain band for myself.  I’m going with the plain band.  I chose it because hold up better over the years and I can wear it anywhere.

I actually ended up with a band similar to the one you posted! Mine is a fishtail braid, and I wish I had pictures because it compliments my sapphire with a diamond halo perfectly. I wanted something a little untraditional to go with my more traditional engagement ring and I couldn’t be happier with my choice!

I am not sure if mine is too unusual, but i did end up getting two bands soldered together to make a single band that could be carved to fit around my oval pave halo. ๐Ÿ™‚

I love unique bands! I have a rose gold spacer between my wedding band, which does not match my engagement ring, and my engagement ring.

If you love it, for it. If you find later on your want the diamond band, get that too and stack them!

I love the idea of the plain yet unique band ๐Ÿ™‚ You can always add sparkle if you want to, the stacked look is pretty cool too ๐Ÿ™‚

i love the braided one, but it might not be as “classic” and last the test of time as much as the micropave one.

i think the micropave is classier.

If you can get both! I am planning on collecting (or being gifted since Darling Husband never knows what to get me) several bands to wear with my bezel 1.5 white gold round solitaire. I love wearing something different every day. So much fun. I currently have a shiny rose gold beaded band, and a satin finish rose gold band.




I also just ordered these to switch out with the others.
