What kind of wedding band do I buy???

I am not your average female....I know very little about jewelry. My STBDH proposed last night, and I couldn't tell you anything specific about the ring he got me.... other than I LOVE IT and I'm really impressed with him. And, I know what he told me about it. Its silver (we both very much prefer silver), it has the main stone in the middle, and two smaller ones on each side of the middle stone. And, I know its a carat diamond...whatever that means.
So, now I have to get him a wedding band to match, but I dont know where to begin...there are so many different names for what looks like silver....I'm lost.
I know I want it to be silver, and I want to get it engraved....but what do I need to look for? How much am I supposed to spend? What is a nugget? I really want to make this special...but I'm so lost.

  • Buy something you both like together. My DH picked out his ring & it doesn't match mine. I don't think they need to match at all.

  • by 'silver', do you mean white-gold, or platinum? you could just buy a simple white-gold (or platinum, if budget allows) band. they have several styles to choose from, some with carving/brushed/diamonds inlaid...just go check them out. most men don't like a lot of showy'd know what your SO prefers, i'd assume. and you know what kind of budget you have.
    they don't have to match, perfectly. also, take into consideration his hand/finger size. if he has small hands, a wider band might not be comfortable. if he has larger hands, he might not notice the thickness and/or a thinner band might look too feminine.
    we went shopping together, and i let ds pick his ring out.

  • My ring is sterling silver and I love it!!! Silver is less expensive then gold but it is made really well and it's strong!!! U could get him a plain band,that would match yours. The place u buy it from should be able to engrave it for u.
