I need help picking out a wedding ring! - Page 2

post #31 of 44
I think c is very beautiful.

I voted for A since you said you like the look of 3 rings.

My parents started a tradition with my family. She has 2 c of diamonds on her wedding band. So on their 5th anniversary my dad got mom a simpler band to wear every day...one that matched his band. On their 25th anniversary he replaced it with a newer but matching band since her's was so out of shape! On their 50th anniversary he got her another band, but this time with diamond accents.

I agree with AbbysMom. You really need to see how the wedding band looks with the engagement ring. The third band is really pretty, but be sure that it looks good with your ring.

This is exactly what I did. I remember that I was so excited for our first anniversary so that I could get the matching ring for the other side.

I have a 1/2ct diamond solitaire too (except in white gold), and I think a plain white gold wedding band brings it out beautifully. It makes my diamond look 10x more sparkly and helps it "stick out". I figure a normal platinum wedding band would do the same for your ring.

If I had to pick one of the 3, I'd pick C. I want an eternity band for an anniversary ring to go above my engagement and wedding rings in the future, and so I like the look of C. I'm not big into enhancers though.

OK, I agree with most everyone here. I personally don't like a Tiffany setting,b/c I like a lower profile for my rings- reduces the snagability of them - but that is the ring you have now, right? I would go with something simple and elegant to complement it. And as someone else mentioned here, can you size the ring enhancers? Besides - as your love grows and changes - and the settings wear out - you can remount the stones, trade up, etc.

The type of work you do should influence the type of ring you get. Not sure if you want to keep taking your rings off for your job (and risk misplacing them), but given the type of work you do I would strongly advise against a tall solitaire setting, or even a setting that has lots of stones (the more stones, the more claws, which means more ways to snag it on things).

With that in mind, go with your fiance to a jewellery store and look at and try on rings. You will get a much better feel for that then looking at pictures on the internet... which IMHO is a very impersonal way to pick out a ring.
I see the heart one getting dirty too easily.
A & C are too much for my taste and sometimes a fancy band takes away from your engagement ring. I have a simple band that has a notch for my engagement ring. I kept them separated though.

Thankyou soo much for all of the suggestions everyone! I really appreciate everyone's helpful comments!!!!! I think i am going to go ahead with C. It's simple, yet elegant and not too overwhelming for my hand.

I tried on one in the local jewerly store yesterday that we visited (just to try on similar rings so we'd have an idea of what we're into) that looked just like C- same size and everything- and it looked wonderful. It was simple, yet very pretty- i loved it!!!I was worried about it "disappearing" under the size of the engagement ring- but it actually looked very good with it- so now that i tried it on i think that's the type i'm going to go with. I wish i lived closer to the actual shop we're ordering it though so i could try on more of the ones i liked in person- but i'm in tennessee, and his family is in alabama- so there's just no way. So we did the best we could going to some local shops and trying on similar styles/rings and also looking online through the same catalogue that the store is going to order though. I feel pretty confident about C He's also picked out the one he wants as well (and was able to try on almost an exact match in the local shop!) so thankfully that's taken care of. He wants Tungsten Carbide though, so that is the metal his will be made out of.

To answer some questions- yes, depending on the enhancer it can be resized and you can also have the enhancer welded together with the ring (Sounds ugly, but when done right can look good) to make it "all one" ring. I think i'm going to go with C though simply because it just looks a bit more classy to me and more simple. Maybe someday down the road he'll get a second one to match for me to put on top of it- but if not that's ok too!

Since we've decided on C, would one of you wonderful Mods mind closing the poll?

i chose c, I like B the best but you are obviously in love with C. You should get the one that you are in love with! I also like the idea of getting the second ring as an anniversary present. You can also talk to your jeweler. Show them the picture of what you like and ask them if they can get you an enhancer that will have the same look.

I had that done with my engagement ring. My engagement ring is actually a solitaire with a wrap; my wedding band is separate. No one would ever know unless they look at the bottom of my ring, and that's mainly just because my ring is 2 toned.
