In Addition to the invitations, seating chart, floral arrangements and million other details you have to figure out for your big day, add picking out wedding bands to the list. You know, the thing you will place on each other’s fingers symbolizing your commitment to to love and support each other until death do you part? Yeah, no big deal.
Once the omg-I-get-to-pick-out-a-gorgeous-piece-of-jewelry-for-myself excitement dies down, chances are, a million scattered thoughts start to roll in. Do I want traditional, trendy, or something that will sparkle? Do I want them to match? Should they match?
Clearly, there’s a lot to consider when choosing an eternity band. We work closely, carefully, and lovingly with our clients on this matter every single day, so trust us when we say: we get it. We get it so well, in fact, that we’re laying out the most important questions to ask yourself before committing to your new lifelong partner (the ring, that is). Best of all, we’re also laying out how to answer said questions.
What can I eliminate off the bat?
Do you want a classic metal wedding band? Are you a diamond woman? Have you always dreamed of a unique gemstone combination? Try to narrow down the type of wedding band you envision sitting on your finger for the rest of your life before diving headfirst into an internet search or walking into a jewelry shop. Even eliminating one off the bat will make the journey a lot more enjoyable.
What colors compliment my skin best?
When choosing the color of your band and even color of the stones, it’s important to take into account the color it’s going to be sitting next to all day everyday: your skin. As a general rule of thumb, rose gold and yellow gold pair best with warm, olive skin tones, while platinum and white golds pair best with pinkish, cool skin tones. As for black gold? Black looks good on everyone with everything. For stones, think of pairing yellow, red and green stones (Yellow Diamond, Emerald, Garnet, Amber, Ruby) with olive tones, and pink, blue and purple stones (Blue Sapphire, Amethyst, Aquamarine, Emerald) with pinkish tones. If you’re looking for a particular stone eternity band or dreaming about mixing a couple different stones, send us an email! We love making our clients’ custom dreams come true.
Can I mix metals?
It’s 2017, which means the answer is definitely yes. Mixing is both super in right now, and a timeless trend that has been around for hundreds of years, so we’re confident it’s a style that isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Traditionally, rose or yellow gold is most commonly paired with a classic white gold, but we’ll be the first to tell you that traditional isn’t for everyone. Many of our Noémie ladies opt for rose gold + yellow gold, or black gold + white gold, and these combinations are gorgeous. What matters most is making sure it feels and looks like you. Give yourself permission to dream, visualize, and play around until you find that sweet spot.
How do I stack?
Can’t choose between a white gold and rose gold band? Or between sapphire and diamonds? You don’t have to! Stack anywhere between 2-3 thin studded bands around your engagement ring and enjoy the best of all words. Not only does stacking create an elegant, sparkly look, but it also can provide nice symmetry, which some interpret as a symbol of sealing in the love. We suggest purchasing all bands you plan on stacking from the same jeweler to create a cohesive look, but from there feel free to mix metals and stones to your heart’s content.
What should I look for in quality?
While certain styles are super in right now (we’re looking at you, triangular wedding bands), remember that you want to look for something timeless. Like, you-and-your-betrothed-78-years old-holding-hands-in-rocking-chairs-as-the-grandkids-run-around-the-backyard kind of timeless. You want the band to feel like you, absolutely, but we suggest taking ample time to visualize the band on your finger in ten, twenty, thirty years. And then saving the super modern, super trendy jewelry pieces for the other fingers.
What if I don’t like it?
There can be a lot of fear around purchasing something that will last you a lifetime. Again, we so get it. The key is to find a jeweler you can really work with throughout the process. Someone who will answer all your questions - and we mean all of them -, offer you exchanges and returns if you change your mind, and even hold your hand from time to time (in a friendly family jeweler kind of way). At Noémie, we not only will walk you through each step of purchasing your dream eternity band (or two or three), but we also offer a lifetime warranty, certification card, free cleanings whenever your heart desires, and free exchanges and returns, even on custom pieces. No questions asked.
I ordered the petite pave band as my wedding band. It’s delicate, timeless and oh so sparkly. When I tried it on my fiancé had to demand it back because I didn’t want to wait until our wedding to wear it.
The packing though seems excessive compared to HelloNeomie’s delicate jewelry. Hope to see less cardboard and a more understated box in the future. I’d also love if quarter sizes would be offered!
Shipping was extremely fast!
Overall I can’t stop raving to friends about the brand and its value.
Purchased this ring as a gift for the lady on Christmas and was not disappointed. She wears a size 5 or 5 1/2, and I initially went with the smaller of the two. Unfortunately, this size did not fit, so I initiated an exchange. The process was incredibly quick and painless (read: a turnaround of about a week) in spite of what must be a busy return season and a holiday. The level of customer service provided was also outstanding.
The 5 1/2 fit perfectly, and I have a very happy girlfriend. The ring itself looks phenomenal and the diamonds are absolutely brilliant.
I will be ordering more (and higher-end) pieces from Noémie in the future, and would highly recommend you do the same.
My customer experience was truly pleasurable. I was able to order my fiancé’s ring easily and you customer service was very helpful helping me corrdinate a complicated delivery over the holidays. The ring came at the perfect time and I was able to pop the question in Big Sur in a private cove that we hiked to. It was perfect and idealic proposal and I couldn’t have done it without your team. She loves her ring!!! I will certainly be shopping with you again in the future. Thanks,

I had to wait a bit since my item was a pre-order, but customer service kept me updated on the progress of my item. I received just in time for Christmas. The packaging was impressive, I'm never throwing out the box. I was very happy with the quality, I will treasure it forever and hand it down to my daughter when she is older. With easy financing, I will definately be aquiring more pieces to start my collection.
My wife loves this ring. I had purchased many presents for her this Christmas, but felt that I needed something as a finishing touch. With just a few days left before Christmas, I ordered a ring and received it the next day. It was by far her favorite present, and she absolutely loves it. In my opinion, the ring is an exceptional value. The beauty and "wow factor" far exceeds the low cost of the ring. My wife has since told me that since the rings are stackable, she would like many more. That's nice for me, as it will make present buying easy for years to come. =)
When my wife suggested I look at rings for her, I was a bit skeptical to purchase something that important on-line. After looking at multiple sites, I chose Noemie. I selected the eternity ring and was apprehensive as to what I would really receive. I was impressed with how quickly the ring arrived and the security precautions that surrounded its arrival. The ring was gorgeous. The real test would be when my wife opened it up on Christmas. It was worth the wait as it was everything she wanted and more. I will definitely look to Noemie in the future for my wife's jewelry needs.
I’ve been totally impressed by the personal customer experience and the jewelry’s quality is excellent. This is the second piece I’ve purchased for my wife and she absolutely loves them.
I absolutely love my ring, the rose gold color is so vibrant and those diamonds...just wow! Plus you cannot beat the price! It is half the price of what is offered at jewlery stores. I adored the box my ring came in, just beautiful and a wonderful surprise. All around amazing! Can’t wait to get another piece from Noemie!!
Working with Olivia and Stephanie was truly great. I am in love with my wedding band and the process couldn’t have been more simple I highly recommend Noemie!!
This diamond band is a perfect complement to my custom designed engagement ring! The cost was unbelievable for this high of quality. Fit was perfect. Brilliant shining diamonds. Definitely worth the money. You won’t be disappointed with this purchase!
These are such beautiful earrings and so well made. I bought and wore them once before my daughter asked to borrow them, a lot.
They SPARKLE and DANCE! My husband loves them as well.
Impressed by the quality of this jewelry. We bought several rings as friendship rings!
Recently purchased a ring and must say the staff was more than willing to go the extra mile to answer any questions I had. Shipping was fast and the ring was remarkable. My wife fell in love with it and cant wait to show it off. Will definately purchase from them again!
I have renewed faith in retail after my experience with These wonderful people!
I love my ring.
My new ring is gorgeous and I love how it sparkles! My husband surprised me and it’s been a little bit of a process for me decide on my perfect ring. I am beyond amazed and impressed with Noémie’s customer service! I had to return the first ring, it was lovely but not the right one. Noémie sent me a complimentary ring sizer and I ordered my second ring... but I didn’t like it on the finger I thought i would sooooo once again Noémie was right there to assist me in getting my ring exchanged for the perfect fit in the perfect style! I will definately be purchasing from Noémie again with confidence that they are there to make sure I’m thrilled with my purchase! Thank you so much!!!!
I've been on the hunt for DTC trendy but classic and elegant, sustainably sourced real gold and diamond jewelry. There are a lot of competitors out there, but Noemie stands a head above the rest, from the quality of jewelry and designs to customer service. When I look at my diamond & gold rings side by side, Noemie's are of noticibly higher quality. And the customer service has been amazing - not to mention the incredibly fast shipping and adorable packaging. You have a customer for life!
I received a rose gold eternity band as a gift from my husband. Words cannot express how gorgeous it is. I’m in love with my ring! The diamonds sparkle in a light. It also means a lot to me that they came from a conflict free source. The ring came with a certificate and a lifetime warranty. I am so happy with my Noemie ring!
I received the custom name necklace with rose gold and diamonds and it is quite stunning! The order came within the timeline listed and when I reached out via email they responded very promptly. Loved the customer service and the amazing quality of my necklace. Will definitely be buying another piece soon!
I am very pleased with my ring purchase. The ring is very well made and the quality is excellent! I would definitely shop here again!
I love my Noemie diamonds! They are so beautiful and I feel great about them being ethnically sourced. I’ve also had great customer service as I had to return/exchange a few times to get exactly what I wanted. The entire process was a breeze. I’ll buy all my jewelry from Noemie from now on.
I purchased a diamond ring for my wife. Within 24 hours, the ring was on her hand. The diamond quality exceeded expectations as did the customer service. Will definitely be a repeat customer!
Received a free ring sizer in the mail quickly, received my ring quickly, and interaction with Customer Service was great. I had an issue at checkout and they were able to address my issue quickly. On top of all of that - I love the ring! It is perfect size width wise, and so sparkly and pretty.
I bought my granddaughter a pair of the cuff diamond earrings for Christmas. They are gorgeous and she is going to be so surprised. Excellent price and delivery was very fast. I’m sold on Noemie.
I mentioned this with Frances my customer service rep I do not usually give glowing reviews, but I have to with the way this company has treated me. I ordered the wrong size and style ring for my wife and Frances immediately went to work on the issue and has stayed in constant contact with me through the exchange process, to the point where she offered me a stand in ring to give my wife until the proper ring is available. This company is amazing, not to mention the packing was amazing. Thank you for being a hassle free company with great customer service.
We purchased this wedding band after looking for a chevron-shaped ring to go along with my three-stone engagement ring. Having looked through various jewelers, I found Noemie through an Instagram ad on my feed, and this ring was exactly what I was searching for at a fraction of the cost of other jewelers. The contour/ chevron is subtle (not a deep V curve), and the diamonds are stunning! It's a beautiful & comfortable ring, and the blue box the ring came in was a delight to open. It pairs perfectly with my engagement ring, and I'm excited to be wearing this band along with my engagement ring in a few months.
This piece is so stunning and sparkly. I get so many compliments. Can’t wait to add to the collection!
From beginning to end, the experience was great. I was able to find what I wanted, the price was great and the ability to make a payment multiple ways and arrange for delivery was great. I got everything so quickly too. I would highly recommend! This product is awesome too!
I not only love the One Carat Eternity Band, I really loved that Noemie made everything easy. I could not believe how quickly they responded to a question I had and how quickly they sent a physical sizer so I could be sure of a perfect fit. And that is exactly what I got. A perfect eternity band that fits perfectly.
At the risk of sounding over the top, I LOVE this company. I ordered the eternity band and is it beautiful. The customer service is on point too, they're so attentive and helpful. I consider my eternity band the first piece in my Noeime collection. Feel free to compare prices on other sites as I did, they beat their competitors in pricing every single time. Plus who doesn't appreciate ethically produced jewlery.
Of all of my online purchases Noemie is the best! Fast, accurate service! 5 Stars is not enough!
Initially, I was skeptical ordering any jewelry online. But I was looking for a wedding band that fit my style (classic) and was affordable. This ring exceeded all I hoped for. It’s beautiful, timeless, chic, and elegant. For this price and for the AMAZING customer service, I was completely awed by this ordering experience. I told Noemie customer service that my wedding date was coming up and was worried about platinum not being shipped to me on time. And they made it work. I got it in 2 days. Truly recommend this ring and this website.
This ring is absolutely stunning! I've gotten so many compliments on it and I absolutely love the shape! It fits great and was an easy process from start to finish!
Received my ring in only two days. It's so beautiful. Would highly recommend this company for your diamond wants and desires. Outstanding quality. Excellent product for the money.
Not only am I so happy with the GORGEOUS Huggie Earrings that I received from Noémie, but with how quickly the package arrived. I've gotten SO many compliments on the earrings. Can't wait to order from them again and again!
I really enjoyed the purchase experience. It was quick and hassle free. Customer service was great quick responses no later than an hour reply. One of the best online shopping experiences i had even better than amazon
