When it comes to bands that will work with my e-ring, I’m limited. The e-ring is very wide so it takes up a lot of room on my finger already leaving not much space for the wedding band. Also, due to the shape of the ring, some wedding band styles just don’t work. I’m pretty much limited to either a channel (which honestly, I don’t love) or a prong set. After months of searching, there’s just really nothing that inspires me.
Well, a few days ago I saw a post mentioning a pink sapphire and diamond wedding band. I LOVE pink sapphires. Actually, I really wanted a pink sapphire e-ring but FI was dead set on diamonds.
Anyways, I found a band that I really like but I worry that it will look awful with my e-ring. Whatdya think?

I don’t really think the styles match. How would you feel about wearing your wedding band on your left hand and your engagement ring on the right hand? Then you could get whatever you wanted. I think you e-ring probably would look better on its own.

@blg529: That’s what I was worried about. I’ve considered seperating the rings but if I did that, I’d want to get a much thicker, more elaborate wedding band (the one I listed is super thin).

Ok I have to ask you where you found that band? It’s BEAUTIFUL and would match my E-ring sooo well! I have a small 3 diamond ring with a pink saphire under the middle diamond.

is that from gemvara?
Honestly? I think it’ll look fine. Do you care if it sits flush?

Obviously I advocate for pink sapphires in any and all situations.
I like this one from Blue Nile…

If you like the band than go for it! You may want to try some local jewelers in your area and see if they have anything similar and how it looks with your engagement ring. I have a pretty wide engagement ring and I chose wedding bands similar to yours, but with all diamonds. I will post some pictures.

It’s such a beautiful engagement ring you might want to wear it solo on your right hand. That’s what I’m doing. My husband gave me his grandmother’s engagement ring from 1920 or earlier that is not shaped to accomodate a band. Back in those days they wore the engagement ring on the right hand after they got married. Once I made the decision to separate the rings it was very liberating–I could choose any band I wanted! I went with a platinum band with etoile set diamonds. Also, a jeweler told me that if you don’t get a contour band and the rings are knocking against each other it can damage them–even if they are platinum, because platinum can scratch platinum. Good luck!

@bebefly: Nah, I don’t care if it sits flush. We knew when we bought the e-ring that unless we had something specially made, nothing would fit perfectly.
@KatyElle: I saw that one too and I absolutely love it. It’s a little more than I was hoping to spend (yea, we’re on a serious budget) but if I’m able to fit it in, it’s definitely on the short list!
@MattandKristin: It’s actually from Overstock and insanely inexpensive, which is another reason why I love it. This chicks on a budget!

@Alsara: I’m definitely still thinking about it. The problem is, like I said above, I’d want something more elaborate. If I seperated the rings, I would want something like these…
I pretty much drool over the intriquate ones daily. With a budget of *hopefully* less than $500, somehow I doubt that’ll ever happen! =)

I love overstock & ended up buying my band from there. I think both bands you posted are perfect if you want to wear both rings together on one hand. You have 30 days to return the band if it doesn’t work for you, so I say go for the pink sapphire one & see how it looks!
