White Gold Diamond Wedding Ring, Wedding Ring Question ?
Q: Well, I personally like the look of all yellow gold. I, too, have a
solitaire -- it is in a tiffany setting. I went with a 4mm gold band,
and it looks great -- very simple and classic. I know a lot of people
are going with the white gold or platinum rings these days because it
seems to be a trend. I wear almost all silver jewelry, but I wanted my
weddign ring to be gold.
My hands are pretty small, and anything wider would have been too much.
I think a total of 6mm next to your e-ring will probably be too much if
your hands are small. I think 4mm is perfect, but I'm biased. You do
not want to detract from your beautiful diamond by adding too much to
the wedding ring, right? I wanted no diamonds or extra stuff on my
wedding band -- just plain and simple. I think it is very classic, and
A:Someday, you might want to add an anniversary band (or not), and there really won't be any room if you have all those bands. I think mine will stay this way forever. I love the simplicity, and since my diamond is a very beautiful, one carat round brilliant, I can't see putting anything next to it that will compete. Does this make sense? I think maybe you should keep looking, though you already bought a band. By the way, my husband also has a plain 4 mm gold comfort fit band, just like mine!! :) I guess my question is why do you want the white gold if your e-ring is yellow? I just don't see them going together well unless it is a very thin edge of white gold on the wedding band. I could see getting this band if you were planning to wear it by itself when you are not wearing your e-ring. I always wear both rings (as they are soldered together), so that isn't an option for me. Of all of the wedding ring styles I've looked at, the one I've liked most has a stacked ring look....that is, imagine three 2mm plain bands stacked together....yellow gold for the outer two layers, and white gold on the inner layer. I've found several rings which are pretty close to this description, but none of them really look right with my engagement ring (which is a plain round solitaire on a yellow gold band)....I know it's only because I'm picky, but most of these rings are flattened, while my engagement ring is rounded (if you see what I'm saying) , and I just don't like the way it looks. I finally ended up buying a plain yellow gold 2mm band. However, I'm beginning to think that if I don't try harder to find THE ring, I'm going to be disappointed. So my question is, is there any reason why I wouldn't be able to just buy two more rings identical to the one I have now, and have them all soldered together? Unless the soldering is really expensive, that would even end up being cheaper than the single rings I've seen that look like this. Or, if that ends up looking like too much on me (I have fairly small hands), would a yellow band and a white band soldered together look dumb? Or does anyone have any other suggestions? Again, please try to overlook the inherent dumbness of this question. All of these little things are beginning to nag at my brain (just over a month until the Big Day!) and I'm afraid my faculties aren't up to par! If your engagement ring is yellow, you could always have it framed on both sides by a slim band of the white. If you like that look, perhaps you could have the yellow band you bought exchanged for this. If you want to stick with the gold wedding band, why not just sandwich a slender white band between it and the engagement ring, to get the two tone look? If each was 2 mm, you'd end up with something not too daunting. Another point to consider is that the "middle" white band in this sandwich could be exchanged or modified at a later date to make an anniversary band (sort of like a ring jacket, above your plain wedding ring). Generally I am not a fan of the soldering plan, but I guess it works for some. I would try wearing whatever you choose without the soldering for a while, until you are used to the ring. Then, if you don't like it that way, you can choose to put them all together. It just seems like something a lot easier done than undone, if you know what I mean. Not to mention issues with resizing that might arise later. Anyway, your idea sounds good. I have seen many like this, and it seems esp. popular for men to have these two tone banded looks (either white sandwiched between outer yellow-tone bands, or vice versa). I would not pair a ring that came ready-made like this with an engagement ring because, you're right, it would look somehow unbalanced. My 2 cents is that it's better to create your own look of this kind, by putting together the individually purchased slender bands with your engagement ring.
