My husband and I were married in June but I am just getting around to posting pics now. Mine is the 2.3mm channel-set band from Facets in 18k white gold, F-G color, VS-VVS clarity, size 4. I had them customize it to a 3/4 eternity in case it ever has to be sized. It does spin and yes, its annoying. I almost wish I would have just went with the full eternity but oh well. I have to add that the customer service at Facets can not be beat. Leah was such a pleasure to communicate with during the purchase process. I must have asked 100 questions and she was always friendly and replied quickly.

My husband's band is this one from Topper: http://www.topperjewelers.com/jewelry/art_carved/mens_11-WV7368 We live in MI but purchased the ring through them because of the price ($580 versus $975 + tax here). We ordered his in Palladium, size 9. He is very simple but wanted something with a little more detail than a plain band and this is perfect on him.

Now, on to pictures! First are some pics I took with my iPhone of both of our rings (sorry the photo quality is so crappy!):

GORGEOUS! That channel set is a perfect compliment to your e-ring. I also have purchased from Facets multiple times and I will agree, Leah is fantastic.

And a couple more, these are the last ones, I swear :bigsmile: Once in a while I wear it stacked with the 2 white gold bands and sometimes if I'm out shopping I just wear the wedding band between the white gold bands (plain 1.5mm bands from eweddingbands.com):

Re: Our wedding bands! Facets channel-set & ArtCarved pallad

Ame, thank you! I had such a hard time finding a band that paired well with my e-ring. I didn't want anything too matchy-matchy and I liked a plain band but my husband thought I should get one with diamonds (and who can say no to that!). A channel set was not my first choice but after trying on some different options, it ended up being the perfect match :appl:

Re: Our wedding bands! Facets channel-set & ArtCarved pallad

Thank you all for your kind words! I had a hard time finding a channel band that didn't sit too high off the finger. When I first received the Facets band, it was higher than the website listed (1.5mm) so it had to be sent back for adjusting. When I got the ring back it was perfect :bigsmile: Here is how it looked when I first got it, I do not like this look at all:

LOve your Facets band and I have an idea for you: have the sizing space engraved with a little design and it won't be so apparent when it spins.

motownmama - Hmm I never thought of that, I'll have to see if I can find someone locally that could do that, what a great idea. Thanks for the suggestion!

Thanks yennyfire!

Very unique set. It looks perfect on your hand and very comfortable too! I like the diamonds going down the side of the e-ring shank. Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful set! The channel band accents your e-ring quite nicely, not too matchy but just enough to keep balance and give them both equal distinction! ::)

stargurl78, I really enjoyed looking at your beautiful pictures. All of your rings are lovely. Your hand over your DH's hand photo gave me a thought for me to have our "rings/hands" picture re-done when we celebrate our 25th next year, since my husband and I have new rings since then. Congrats to you!
