Yesterday we went to the Stony Point Fashion Park to the Tiffany & Co. which opened in September. M had not been, I had been with my Mom a few months ago. It is a great store for the Richmond-area market. Being as the next closest stores are Charlotte, NC and Tysons Corner, VA, I was really impressed by the high and low price points represented at this store. We are an old South town, but we have no major professional sports teams or a ton of locals who sport big bling, unless it is the inherited kind. I really enjoyed seeing what they offered for wedding bands.
Here are some various styles I have previously considered:
1. an antique, or antique-looking, scroll ring in platinum with no more than a carat of round diamonds in the band:
2. a pavé diamond platinum band of no more than one carat, with milgrain detail, which would go with my engagement ring:
3. a pavé and milgrain platinum band of round diamonds and sapphires:

Well, I think I may have found the ring - here it is taken from the Tiffany & Co. website:
This is the Tiffany Legacy Collection band ring, which sapphires and diamonds around the entire band. I love the milgrain detail and the subtle, Edwardian-period elegance of it! If you read my Pinterest you know I love that jewelry period!
Milgrain is a detail taken from my parents wedding bands; the platinum, sapphires and diamonds are all on my engagement ring. My Mother's Tiffany & Co. engagement ring is a yellow sapphire, which is her birthstone. So, now you can understand better how it all ties together!
M helped me figure out the band decision. He said he likes the sapphires and diamonds in the band together - which picks up the center stone sapphire in my engagement ring. We would like to get our bands at Tiffany & Co., as my parents did, but we are still on the fence as my engagement ring did not come from Tiffany, but rather a smaller local jewelry store which did a custom ring for M. So we shall see. At least stylistically we have decided what we want!
How did you do your wedding bands? Any tips?
