acb123 :  most people I know have diamond wedding bands; mine is a curved diamond band. I think the thinking that a wedding band has to be plain metal is quite outdated/old fashioned.

Your rings are gorgeous together! 

I feel eternity style rings are far more popular now in the UK, it’s about 50:50 on people I know between plain and blingy bands.

I’ve gone for an eternity band too, though haven’t got it delivered yet – similar to the below but in yellow gold. I like dainty rings and can’t ever picture wearing 3 bands on one finger (though I love the stacked look on others) so I don’t feel I need an eternity ring later. Fiance can just buy me a right hand ring if he feels the need!

I love your set! Here’s mine – I had no idea mine doesn’t meet the definition either!

acb123 :  it’s a lovely set. For the record a plain band too would look amazing as a three set. 

Heres mine. I wanted plain platinum but it just sat really badly with the antique ering and it’s funny basket. I tried different widths and heights as I so wanted a plain band but nope – didn’t look right. And DH agreed. So more diamonds it was then! Oh dear!

I ve got a plain gold 3mm band and will be wearing my white gold e ring on the other hand once we get married (FI has a similar band and is putting his e ring on the other hand so we’ll sort of match:p)

From my short stint of working in a jewellers, it seemed 50/50 between plain bands and diamond set bands.

Your band is beautiful and goes so well with your ring! I think sparkly wedding bands are getting more and more popular here but that’s more with younger brides I’ve found in my area. 

Here’s mine which I can’t wait to wear!

I really like plain bands the classic-ness of them but I also wanted sparkles so I got a band that was basically both! Yay!

Beautiful set!

I have a plain 2mm platinum band. I thought I wanted a diamond band but fell in love with the plain band on me.

This is my engagement ring and bottom pic is the wedding band that I have chosen it’s 3mm thick I didn’t want a diamond band because I would be too worried about loosing small stones but didn’t want a completely plain band either so I love this one !!

I was a UK bee when I got married and I did get a bit of friendly critique at work mainly from my English and Israeli coworkers that I was not having a traditional wedding band and that in their mind it should be plain and they hadn’t seen anything like I was designing used as wedding band (6-stone asscher, eternity pave shank).

I haven’t had that kind of commentary here in the US but then I’m also not going on and on to anyone about the design process here since it’s already done and on my finger. 

When I designed it my intention was to wear my engagement ring on my right hand after marriage to balance the bling but once I saw the rings together I liked the overall impact as a set so have just stuck with that. And since engagement and marriage I’ve gotten interested in ring jewellery too so I have two other rings to wear on other fingers (trinity ring + the big one in the photo).

Soton85 :  your band looks like the wheat design. Is it an antique or antique design?

 

I love seeing bands from other countries. Its interesting to see the difference.

In the shade so you can’t really see, but I have a double row sapphire and diamond band, so really not the norm! Love it though 🙂
