@bump:  I like something that’s not an eternity band, just so it’s easier to get it resized if needed.

If you get an eternity it will cost a fortune to resize since they will need to reset each individual diamond to size it… If you like that look try a 3/4… If you’re worried about the $$ shop at local honest hole in the wall jewelers instead of chains 🙂 Good luck!

I think they make bands like that in moissanite. 

but if you are looking for good quality and something you can wear forever, I suggest ben bridge. their quality is top notch. way superior to zales.

I really like the Scott Kay one. I also think it’ll require less upkeep as there are not diamonds all the way around the band.

I have never even heard of Ben Bridge before so I can’t say anything about them negative of positive. But, you mentioned that you want something that you don’t have to get cleaned all the time (which I intrepted as you wanting something low maintance) just know that with Zales if you get the warrany you have to take the ring back to a Zales store every 6 months for inspection. If you don’t take it in, you violate the terms of the warranty and it becomes void. Just something else to think of.

I vote #2 b/c it’s more practical. Easier to clean and resize, the stones dont go all the way around which can lead to them falling out, and you still get the look of the eternity band. Plus it’s super pretty 🙂

I’m partial to the first one, because that is my wedding band 🙂

@bump:  my diamond wedding band is from ben bridge.  their flagship store is here so they are well known in this town. they have a very good reputation and great customer service.  they’re kind of a smaller chain. the prices are a bit higher but their quality is top notch.  

the rhodium has worn off my ring and it is just barely a warm tone– it’s only the slightest bit noticeable if you hold it up against a really white metal like silver.  I don’t plan on getting it replated. 

they have a trade up program too! so you could take your diamond ring in and applly what you paid for it towards new diamond jewelry! the only catch is that the new item must cost 2x (or more) what the old ring did.  but still– pretty neat.

shoot, I almost forgot to mention this– those rings you posted above are pave set. if you are looking for something easy to take care of and will last forever, pave is not really the way to go. it’s super pretty, but it is the most susceptable to losing stones because the prongs are so tiny.  so that style is actually pretty high maintenance. 

for low maintenance, I suggest bezel set rings or channel set. 

since price is a factor for you also, I’m going to shamelessly plug moissaniteco.com again. their stones are super high quality, flawless, and just as hard as diamonds, but for way less money.  they don’t show it on their website, but if you ask them, many of their eternity rings can be special ordered in 3/4 or 1/2 eternity, which will cost even less. 

my other wedding band is from there and I had the rhodium plating removed from it.  it is even whiter looking than the ben bridge ring. their white gold is just really good quality.
