Hi Everyone! My fiance and I decided to get some plain bands to use as our wedding rings for a couple of reasons. First, we wanted to save some money to use on other parts of our wedding. Second we thought it would be nice to have something plain. My fiance wants to get me two pave bands at some point however for the time being we decided on plain bands to get married with. They are here and I am actually loving the way mine looks with my Tacori engagement ring. What do you think? I have more pics but for your sanity I tried to pick out the best ones.

Here are our bands together. My fiance wanted plain and pretty thin band. The thicker ones did not look good on him.

Coatimundi, Thank you! I''m really excited about this look. Do you think I should get another band for the other side? I''m really loving the plain band.

I think it looks beautiful!! I love plain bands - LOVE them. Your band really lets your engagement ring take center stage, and adds a touch of understated elegance to the set. Lovely!

In case anyone is interested, I got the bands from weddingringhotline.com Another, FYI, if any ladies are looking for a spacer band. My band is 2mm and it cost about $230. I shopped around online a bit and over the holidays they were having a sale. I got both our bands from there for just under $800. I thought that was pretty good and wanted to let you all know.

Ooh I''m impressed with how the plain band brings out the beauty of your engagement ring and vice versa.

Thank you, Musey! I really love the way it looks. After I saw your Jazz band I took my fiance by the hand and made him come to Tiffs with me to try it on. Sadly, it did not look good. The styles were just so different. My ER did look good with the novo but its just too much to spend right now given the whole wedding expense. Anyway, we did get a quote from Leon for pave bands to go on either side of my ER. My fiance promised that at some point he will get them for me. For now, I am totally satisfied with this plain band look. I also think it will be quite cool at somepoint to have two pave rings on either side of the wedding ring.

For that price ... why not get a 2nd in a matte (sandblasted or brushed) finish ... I think that could work really well with your ER too ... kinda take a backseat even more.

You picked the perfect shape & scale! Love it!

mayachel and gecko....THANKS! I really love what it does for the ER.

On another note! I freaking HATE the prongs on my ER. Seriously, seeing them in these pictures makes me cringe. The are just terrible. I love everything about this ring except that. It is a good thing that they pretty much blend into the setting. Up close its really not that noticible but in the pictures, magnified, just terrible. Anyway, I had to get that out.

I know, you can''t beat the price. Thats a good idea about the different finish however, would it seem like I was trying to match but didn''t?

I love it with the single band. Your e-ring is such a stunner that it''s balanced beautifully with the one plain band. Love this!

Personally, I''d wear either/or ... wouldn''t wear the matte one at the same time as the polished one. If that''s what you meant??? Re: wearing the matte finish one with your Ering ... I think that would be a nice kind of mix/match. At least in my *mind*. HA!

I love that look, and your rings look gorgeous together. I now wish that I had also gotten a plain band - my channel set band, with squared edges, isn''t that comfortable to wear all the time - I end up taking it off at night. I wish that I had just gotten a plain, thin, rounded band to wear all the time and never have to take off. One of my friends got a plain band as her wedding band and it looks stunning with her oval & 2 pears 3 stone ring.

I''m a huge fan of plain bands as well and really love the way a plain band makes your center stone (and entire e-ring) really pop! I''m also a big fan of a little patina on the platinum, so I think it''s just going to look more and more beautiful over time. The pave bands will be great and as you mentioned, having one on either side of your plain band will look lovely once you get them! Having matching bands will be perfect for the cereomony!

The patina was my main concern with getting the plain band but I believe that unless I don''t wear it, that is kind of unavoidable. Right now the band stands out because it is so shiny but over time I think you are right that they will just look that much better together. I plan on getting my ER band polished before the wedding so hopefully they will match for our wedding.

BTW...I think I found weddingringhotline through one of your old posts, so...THANKS!

really pretty. I think you''ll like having the option of wearing the plain band. I have one and wear it when I''m at the gym, hiking, climbing. swimming etc. as not to mess up m ER or WB. Well done!
