Well, I finally decided on a band to go with my engagement ring. The hard part will be waiting a year to wear it. I took the recommendation of several people and used e-wedding bands for my plain 2mm platinum band. My engagement ring won''t sit flush with a flat band and I didn''t want to have a curved band - luckily I like the gap.

The engraving turned out better than I could have imagined. The lettering is very clear even on this tiny little band. I tried to capture a picture of it, but it doesn''t do it justice.

Very nice! I like a little gap too sometimes. I think your set is very modern and pretty.

Here is the 2.5 mm band I originally ordered. It didn''t look right, but the exchange for the 2mm light was quick and easy. Hard to believe the 1/2 mm made such a big difference.

Thanks, I love the setting too - 6 months and the thrill is still there. My fiance designed my ering with the jeweler. I posted pictures of the page 4 of the post are of an intermediate version.

Wow, that looks like much more than a 0.5 mm difference! Really dramatic - the smaller band goes much better with your ering!

Nice wedding set. Simple wedding bands are my favorites. Easy to wear everywhere. No worries about the rings not sitting flush. Mine move about on my finger anyway, so even if they can be flush, they rarely are.

Congrats on your upcoming wedding.

I really like the 2mm. The 2.5 was a little overwhelming. I just love how they put the finish on the band. I think it looks great together!

Bluekeet-I''ve never seen your ring before and it is beautiful! Wow! And I LOVE the picture of your doggie "wearing" the ring!
The flower and plant pictures are gorgeous, but the dog pic takes the cake!

I also really like the wedding band-I can''t believe the difference .5 mm makes! I like the 2 mm band so much more than the 2.5 mm one!

And I forgot to mention how cool that diamond is! I''ve never heard of a Gabi cut diamond before seeing yours and it''s so pretty-very unique!

BlueKeet, your ring is one of my all time PS favorites! The simple band looks lovely, and it was great to see your ring again!

extremely lovely and very elegant! Is your band the domed comfort fit on e-weddingbands? I just took a look to see if I could find it.

Hey, that looks exactly like my weddding band! Did you get it from Facets? Great job!


I cannot believe the overwhelming difference betwen 2 and 2.5mm. I think the new band goes really well with your e-ring. Beautiful ensemble! Congratulations!

Thanks for all the compliments. One other difference between the 2.5mm and 2mm is the thickness. The 2mm is the domed "light" and is only 1.3mm thick which is more in line with the ering's thickness. The 2.5mm was the regular domed band on e-wedding bands (1.5mm thick). Neither one was the comfort fit style. Who would have thought there were so many variations of a simple thin band? Strange thing is the 2.5mm was actually closer in width to the ering (I have digital calipers)- it must be the shape or style that made it look so off.
