We got a really small e-ring…actually a promise ring. We are both young and really couldn’t afford much more I guess. Now the problem is finding a band that works. It’s hard with such a small, thin ring. (most bands are made to pair with big rings). the stone does not stick up a whole lot either. any ideas??

my only suggestion is what i did – wear the band on a different hand and move the e-ring over to the right hand when you get married. i don’t have a stright band either for my e-ring and the diamond is pretty small (1/4 carat), so i found that no matter which wedding band i found to go with it, it just “took away” from the diamond in the e-ring. i like each of my rings better separate than together.

I think that it’s very pretty! : ) For a band, does it go nicely with a plain band? Perhaps if you were to get a custom-fitted plain white gold band, it wouldn’t cost too much because there’d be no diamonds?
Also, if you’re into sentimentality & your grandparents have old gold lying around that they want to give to you, you can take it in to be melted down and made into a band, and the jewler can add the agents to make it white gold!
You could also buy a set of “stackable” plain bands. These are usually thinner, and you could wear either one on either side, or just one.

I like how dainty your ring is! And you definitely should be able to find something that will work with it. Actually, check out the thread I started earlier today called “Why do I feel bad that the ring I like is so cheap”. The band I am wearing with the ring in that photo is very thin and delicate, plus it has a contoured shape that could possibly work with your ring. If the shape didn’t work then there’s always very thin straight diamond bands that are pretty inexpensive. If I recall right, Helzberg Diamonds has some nice ones so you might check there if they have any stores in your area.
