Should I go for a Diamond set Wedding band, or a Plain band?

Should I go for a Diamond set Wedding band, or a Plain band?

July 12 2022

Unsure of where to start when it comes to choosing your Wedding ring? We’re here to give you a helping hand!


The planning is underway, and the list is getting shorter, but you still haven't thought about what wedding ring to go for. The choice can seem a little overwhelming when there are many different styles, choosing something you will ultimately be wearing for the rest of your life is a big decision. (Imagine how your fiance must have felt!)

When it comes to shopping for your ring, you’ll hear about and read about lots of different styles. Channel set, micro-grain, claw set, pavé set, court shape... Don’t let it overwhelm you!
We won't deny it, there are many different settings of diamonds to think about...but why not start off easy for yourself. Diamond set, or plain?

To help you make your decision, we’ve listed some pros and cons of choosing diamond set bands and plain wedding rings

Diamond Set Wedding bands

Pro’s 

  • Going for a subtle sparkle will compliment your engagement ring, a gorgeous frosting sat gracefully around it.
  • If there were to ever be an occasion where it was only suitable to wear your wedding band, having a diamond set band means you’ll still get that sparkle you love.
  • If an Eternity ring isn’t something in the foreseeable future, then a diamond set wedding band is a lovely way to incorporate both meanings into one. 
  • More style options than plain, including diamond cuts and settings.

Con’s

  • If you go for something too sparkly and overpowering, it could take away the attention from your engagement ring.
  • If you want to go for an eternity ring in the future, 2 diamond set bands might not work as well with one another, especially if they aren’t the same style/design.
  • Smaller set diamonds can attract residue build up underneath, and if not cleaned regularly can loosen and even lose stones.
  • Diamond set bands are more expensive than plain.

Pros

Cons

  • If there’s ever an occasion where you are not going to be wearing your engagement ring, a plain wedding band may not have the same desired effect as your sparkling diamond.
  • A plain band may appear to look worn quicker, as much more metal is showing, compared to a diamond set band. 
  • A thicker plain band might look chunky paired with your engagement ring, creating an overall heavy look.
  • Fewer design options compared to a diamond set band.
