It's JUST a wedding band...

Ok. So for Christmas Eve, I finally got a replacement for the custom notched wedding band that Victor Canera made for me. My ring finger has been feeling very...incomplete. Now that I have my new band, it's all ok again.

I'm have to say I am very surprised at how difficult it has been to find the perfect band. I've been trying to put together my wedding set for almost four years now and could not find the right combo that felt just "right" if you know what I mean. I finally discovered that for me, the rings MUST be the same width and height. And I never realized how difficult that is to achieve.

Anyhoo, I think I finally got it right. Platinum band. 2mm wide. 1.3mm high. Size 5. Thank you Yssie for the suggestion of e-weddingbands.com. So many different options and such reasonable prices.

Nothing fancy. Just finally a basic, symmetrical, simple set.

So glad your set is now complete! :appl: It looks great on you, especially given the reasonable price!

Now it's time for you to concentrate on other pieces like a step cut RHR or even a new branded piece! ;))

Gosh, your e-ring is so gorgeous! The new band looks nice! Just curious...why did you not want a matching band from Victor?

Hi DS! I did have one made by Victor, but I lost it. :cry: I decided not to get a notched band again because even with the notch, the band rotated and never stayed in the right spot. So instead the angles created by the notch hit against the prongs. So I decided to find a low profile plain platinum band, which would work just as well, but much cheaper. I'm trying to figure out the rest. And I'm uncertain whether a matching band will rub against the prongs too much. There will be rubbing regardless, but I would want to minimize it.

I am open to suggestions!

LLJsmom, it is the perfect combination. Matched in height and width but visually different in design to add interest and uniqueness. Not matchy matched. LOVE it. :love: Timeless classic elegance and sophistication. BEAUTIFUL. :love:

What a gorgeous look!!! I love the sophistication and elegance. The plain band gives extra oomph to your set and let your beautiful VC ring sparkle even more.

Enjoy wearing your set.

You mentioned you are currently figuring out the rest. Will you add a pave band to the set?

I totally agree with Acinom that the plain band makes the VC ring stand out even more! I love the look of them together...so classic and sophisticated!

Very nice - I love the look of them together! I know how difficult it can be to find 'the one' that looks just right with an engagement ring. Isn't it strange how hard that can really be? You made a lovely choice though!

It is not "just" a wedding band - it is the piece that completes your set and showcases your amazing Victor Canera engagement ring. Nice choice. Is that the flat band or the domed?

Thank you Sundial! It's a domed band. I lost the flat band. I really like the domed even more than the flat band.

I've been looking at jewelry for a while now and I am amazed at how incompetent I have been at even choosing a band that "works". It has taken forever to figure out why certain people's wedding sets look so good and why some are just a little off.

Love this look!!! :love: :love: :love: I think they go together perfectly LLJsmom, a plain band with pave ering is my favorite look…the band adds a little something but that gorgeous ering is the star! And they are very well matched, great find! :dance:

Thank you everyone for the supportive comments. I have to admit. I really like it with just two, the band and the ering. I'm feeling a little insecure cause I feel like I should stack more. (Cause everyone stacks...) but I am loving it simple right now. It feels like a wedding set. I don't think I have ever truly felt that, not even with the custom notched band. How weird...

Your band sets off your stunning diamond ring perfectly! Nothing more is needed there. Thank you LLJsmom, because of your threads on finding the right band, I also ordered a plat. domed band from e-Weddingbands. I think mine came a few days before yours. I love mine too. Enjoy your perfect set!

I love a plain thin band with any e-ring. There's something about the pairing that's elegant and timeless. And the nice thing is that you can change up the look with a blingier alternative if you're in the mood, but the plain band will always be a classic. :appl:

Count me in as an admirer of the plain band movement. It looks sleek with your ering, & have to agree, it really sets the stage for that showpiece, gorgeous LLJ!! :love: :love: :appl:

Off to investigate.....

Another fan here! I also had my rings changed, and one of the priorities was matching width & height.

I'm a classic plain band girl too. Your rings look elegant & perfect & I'm so glad you've found your groove :love:
