    @exuberance: Pretty e-ring!  I feel like the plain platinum band would go best with that style for me.

    A baguette half-eternity band?

    OP- I think you can ‘almost’ eternity rings. They leave off one or two of the diamonds so there is a space that can be removed/added in case you move up/down a size!

     

    @SandyDollHair: I love the baguette bands! I think that would look stunning!

    @Stammie16: AND I also think a plain band would look beautiful as well!

    I’m having the same issue!! I have baguettes too.  If you go sparkly I suggest a half eternity that can still be sized later.  I’m scared to death to have a eternity band that won’t fit one day.  How about something plain that’s etched? It will still sorta match your FI’s band.

    this ring is on my short list:

    I don’t think it’s necessary for his/hers wedding bands to match. Go for the eternity band you love and have had your eyes on!! ๐Ÿ™‚  If you are worried about it fitting down the road then maybe go with a 3/4 eternity to allow some space for sizing. Or you could go 1/4 to 1/2 size bigger than normal and get either sizing beads or a horseshoes spring put inside which are easily removeable later (both will also keep your ring from spinning)…this way it will fit when you are smaller and if you happen to go up a bit in size later you won’t have to go through the trouble of resizing. And maybe go the custom route so you can get something to match your e-ring baguettes better. But if you really really want to match your husband…well…maybe get 2 wedding bands to go on either side of your e-ring – your eternity band and a thin platinum band! 

    I’m thinking about getting a Cartier trinity ring as a second wedding band and have done a lot of searches and whatnot on pricescope and purseblog forum. The general concensus is that the trinity ring is REALLY expensive to resize, and Cartier doesn’t recommend it because it’s usually cost prohibitive vs. cost of the ring itself and just difficult in general. Not that it can’t be done.   Here’s a good post that shows his/hers trinity wedding bands w/ and engagement ring    http://www.pricescope.com/forum/show-me-the-ring/cartier-trinity-pair-t144312.html
