We picked together. My engagement ring already had a matching band that I added a couple more mini diamonds to, so that wasn't particularly exciting (never got to try on and am going to pick it up next week). FH had lots of options and we had fun picking it out. He then customized it online, send the info to the jewelry store, and it was ordered. We're picking up next week so it'll be cool to see how it turned out in person!
This made me laugh! My FH bought my band with my ring because the Employee told him it went well with it... at first I liked it together, but I kept starring at them together & the designs didn’t mesh well. I LOVE my ring, but the band wasn’t the right one I feel. I asked my FH if it were okay if we exchanged it to something matches a bit better... I’m the one wearing it! The design would’ve driven me crazy. Lol but he did a great job on my ring and that’s what matters. And plus he’s picking out his own band!
Since it was my gift to him, I picked it. He picked my engagement and wedding rings (hard, and perfect) and I got him with a plain gold band with nothing added. ( easy!) And a nice gold pocketwatch he loves.
My FH picked his out, but we sat down and talked about what we’d like. I wanted him to have gold, to match my ring, and he wanted silver, so we compromised and he got a silver ring with gold bands in it.
