    Like i have a legacy, so theres a small diamond that sticks out from stopping the band from sitting right up against the engagement ring band. so can the band fit right against your engagement ring?

    Ahh, I still havnt found one for the legacy. 

    But I think i’m picking the diamond band ring at Tiffanys. 

     

    I think because your engagement ring band platinum , you could go with a 2 mm plain platinum (lucida, if you’re buying at tiffanys)

    Well I have that Tiffany setting and I’m still not sure what band to put with it!  🙁  

    I have tried 2mm eternity rings (just okay), 2mm plain bands in yellow and white gold (the mixed metals look fine), the 2.5mm milgrain band (good), stacked rings (not my preference), a 3mm channel set band, etc.  I’m thinking of getting a 4mm etoile band to try next if I can find an inexpensive CZ version.   If you like mixed metals, I think a plain band would go best with that setting, and the Lucida band is gorgeous.  Plain bands seem to showcase the diamond the best, IMO.  I think my problem is that my diamond isn’t very big, so it gets overshadowed quickly by bulkier bands.  If your diamond is fairly large, you can get away with a lot more.

    @ultimatebirds:  I think the beauty about Tiffany style settings is there really isn’t a “best”! It looks elegant with pretty much everything!

    Here’s my Tiffany Knife Edge inspired engagement ring and my milgrain bezel eternity band.

    Here’s a thread with tons of solitaires (many are Tiffany inspired!) and their wedding band choices.

    I love the mixed metal look with white metal and rose gold! If you’re going with rose gold I think a rose gold eternity band would look GREAT! Here’s one of my favorite mixed metal ring sets:

    Even plain bands can be fun.

    Thinking about this one, I have the Vatche swan and need a curved ring to fit it right! Also thinking about getting a second one for the other side.

    Supersleuth :  

    I am just now reading through this thread, and found your post with your pictures of your solitaire and plain, simple, elegant wedding band, all in yellow gold, and I just wanted to let you know how beautiful I thought they are! Mine are exactly like that, although my diamond is smaller, I’m sure! 

    I had to remount my original engagement ring diamond after our wedding, because we had discovered on our honeymoon that white gold and my husband were NOT good friends! Later, for an anniversary gift, I bought him a yellow gold band. His job when we married didn’t allow him to wear any jewelry, and he wasn’t a “jewelry person” per se. So, I waited until we were in a place financially where we could do it comfortably.

    Being the superstitious type, I surely wanted our rings to match(!), so I decided to create a mount myself from other pieces. It turned out to bench cheaper than buying a ring already assembled and ready for its own stone. I found, on my first foray around eBay, exactly the one I was seeking! It hadn’t been there the day before, because it said it was a new listing in the buying time. It was a 14kt white gold tulip style miracle or illusion mounting, and it was precisely the size that I needed for MY diamond! The base of the head was the perfect size to be mounted into a yellow gold, halo profile (round like a curtain ring or a solid tube without any channel through it, most about 2.0-2.2mm thick) wedding band, one of three I had found and purchased on eBay over a period of months, all of different widths, seeking the perfect size band to wear alone or with an engagement ring. They were 2.0, 2.5, & 3.0mm wide. I picked the 2.5mm to turn into the band for the engagement ring. I have a very good friend who manages her family’s jewelry store – she is third generation – and I took everything to her to have the work done by their in-house bench jeweler. My grandfather was a jeweler, so I have a good bit of knowledge “on board” regarding many aspects of the trade, including bench work. So, a couple of V-cuts close enough together, and tapered in, to allow the six prong style illusion head to sit in the band, and a little solder, a torch, some polishing, fresh application of rhodium on just the head, and we’re in business! I even paid for the work by scrapping out the white gold band from the engagement ring mounting I didn’t want! 

    The diamond is an absolute beauty, and a perfect fit to the proportions of the top. You can’t hardly see the four tiny center prongs that actually hold the .37ct stone in place, and it looks for all the world like the six pseudo-prongs surrounding the illusion plate are the ones doing the job! It looks like a ¾ct stone for all its worth! I love it, and I can wear either of the other two bands with it that I mentioned, because the proportions are perfect together, or either of two other 4mm comfort fit bands I own, or any of a few others I own, plain or patterned, shiny, milgrained or engraved, yellow gold or two tone gold bands! I have a significant collection, including many I haven’t mentioned. My Darling Husband doesn’t mind at all which rings I wear! He says, and I agree, that after 40 years, we are married to each other in our hearts, not because of any rings we may or may not wear! My superstitious nature has relaxed considerably over that length of time too, since it doesn’t bother me now if, when we both wear rings, (which I always do) they don’t match, and he wears any one of several alternative white metals (!) or a gold band, or we do or don’t match. Makes no difference to either of us. Although he did admit at one point that he liked it best when I wear one of my widest gold bands. I asked him why, and he said it just made him feel better when the fact that I was a married woman, and not “up for grabs,” was clearly displayed on my ring finger! I thought that was about the sweetest thing that he could ever say to me!

    heputaringonit :  It’s actually my icon picture. If it’s not terribly clear, I can try and take another picture of it to get a better view. That was the best shot I had of it at the time! Thanks for contacting me about it!
