I Do: Engagement Bands

We share why engagement bands are a definite DO in our new series: I Do/ I Don’t, where we split the pros and cons between the hottest wedding trends.

In today’s American, keeping-up-with the-Jones’ society, it’s often difficult to fathom the idea of wanting to marry a man who doesn’t present you with a rock big enough to sink the Titanic. I am a total advocate of marrying for love, don’t get me wrong, but a great way for a guy to show his love is presenting you with a diamond at least one carat in weight and preferably princess cut. Just saying.

I’ve recently been introduced to the idea of engagement bands though, and it may be changing my mind on the necessity for a solitaire diamond engagement ring. Why have one diamond when you can really sport an entire band of them. It’s like the tennis bracelet of engagement rings: classy, flashy, and sparkly!

The eternity band is primarily given as an anniversary gift for a man show his continued commitment to the unity of marriage. The idea of giving them instead of a traditional engagement ring is a fairly new practice—one that’s still on it’s way to perfection. The best advice: try to go with an diamond band that only wraps around ¾ of the way in the event of needing to be resized in the future. Otherwise, there is no metal to add or take away.

I feel like an engagement band is a unique and modern twist on engagement in general. It’s going to be different than what most of your girlfriends are sporting—and there are a lot of practical aspects. You won’t get the rock caught on anything, nor will you bang it off walls and furniture if you’re clumsy like I am. You also don’t have to worry so much about loosing a single, huge stone.

Although it’s not traditional, not everyone is cut from the same mold. If I had the opportunity to go back, or to pick out an engagement ring in general (an opportunity that I, personally, will never get) I would look at the Eternity bands as a viable option. They’re practical, classy, and pack a nice carat weight, to boot!
