I’m having both: my e-ring is a flower-shaped, antique-style diamond cluster, and I will be having a shaped-to-fit band set with pave diamonds to wear with it. I am also having a plain band in palladium very similar to the one you’ve posted (it’ll be a 3mm medium-weight band) to wear when I don’t want to ring my set (eg at the pool on holiday, doing anything really manual, swimming, etc).
My finger feels naked without a ring, so I wanted a ‘back up’. Plus I do think a simple band looks very classic and understated 🙂

Honestly, I live in a city where the engagement ring/wedding set culture isn’t exactly huge. Ever since I started to pay attention the women’s ring finger, more often than not all I have seen are plain bands. Rarely do I come across a set. I think it looks beautiful 🙂

I really love just a plain wedding band with no e-ring. A lot female clients (70+) just have a plaiN gold band and I fell in love with them. I have a pretty traditional set right now, but I would also like to get a simp,e rose gold band to wear alone

I’m gonna go against the grain and say that I really don’t like plain bands. I like them when they are paired with other more interesting rings, but to me, they are way too boring especially when worn alone. Just my opinion though!

I went right in the middle, a channel set white gold band. It has just enough bling to say ‘hey, I like nice things’ without making me feel like it’s too much.

@MrsFuzzyFace: I’d probably wear the plain band when I go swimming and such, but want to leave the e-ring somewhere safer.
I don’t have my set yet, but I plan on having a plain platinum wedding band and a solitaire e-ring.

In school and in clinicals I can’t wear anything fancy, so I already know that I’m going to get a plain band as well. I already can’t wear my engagement ring in labs and clinicals, so I wear a plain stainless steel band so my finger isn’t naked.
I like the look of a plain band, but I’m also going to wear my pretty set when I can.

I wanted a plain band, but they didn’t sit properly with my e ring, and after lots of thought DH and I decided it was important that i find something that fit with my e ring and that I wear them both, it meant a lot to us. Aside from that i still think plain bands are wonderful, so classic and there is no question that they symbolize your marriage.
EDIT: my wedding band is still quite simple, its plain white gold, with a small curve to fit around my ering, and a few tiny diamonds (from the same diamond my e ring came out of) along the curve

Plain bands worn alone can be okay once in a while. I really like a plain band paired with an interesting e-ring or vice versa.

@MrsFuzzyFace: My ering is 3 stones and my wedding band has 5 stones. I actually wear my great grandma’s gold wedding band sometimes. I love how it looks, but my DH complains that you can barely see it on my hand and that it looks as if I am not even wearing a ring. But I still wear it time to time

I really don’t plan on wearing my engagement ring after we’re married. My mom almost only ever wore her wedding band, so to me, that’s what married people do – I never met anyone until very recently who wore their e-ring with their wedding ring. I’ll probably wear my engagement ring on my right hand, or maybe once in awhile on my ring finger.

@MrsFuzzyFace: I bought that exact ring! It’s 2mm platinum. I got it off an internet website for about $300. Fiance was mad at me because he wanted me to get a much fancier one. But I agree with you that the skinny plain ring looks so chic on it’s own. Especially if you have small, delicate hands like mine (my ring size is 3.5)
I love the way my band looks when I wear it without my engagement ring. But it also looks pretty sharp next to my round solitair.

I love the look of a plain gold band. I wear one daily at work because it’s just not practical for me to wear my e-ring. My mother has a simple gold band as well and wears her e-ring with it when going out. I hope to eventually get a blingy wedding band and have my simple band for practical reasons.

I love it. I wear mine alone sometimes. I think it’s very classy.
