I’ve done some band shopping lately and can’t help but think that my ering looks better on its own. I have teensy little hands (i’m very short) and feel like bands make my fingers look stubby, and take away from my ering. Am I crazy? I thought I was supposed to be excited about getting more bling on my finger.

No you’re not alone. I can’t find one that matches. My ering has twisty sides. The one they reccomend with it looks strange to me. I want a wedding band, but I can’t find anything that doesn’t leave a gap or look mis-matched.

Your ring is gorgeous! I feel the same way. I like erings on their own, and imho, there is no reason to have another ring on there. I wear my ering only and I love it!

I totally get what you mean, especially considering the dainty (and beautiful) ring you have.
I’m petite too. I got the thinnest wedding band possible (one that is still wide enough not to bend with constant wear), so really in my opinion it doesn’t look “overcrowded” on my finger. I think both rings just under 4mm together. Sorry no pics.

@junesommers: Mine looks nearly identical to yours and I have a band with mine. The width of the ering band and the wedding ring band is a mere 1.7mm each. The band matches the ering band exactly. It does make it a little less delicate but since we’ve gotten married, I’ve always worn the band and now it looks a little too dainty with the band. Maybe it’ll grow on you too? My hands are also very small too, which is why I wanted a super delicate set.

I am only wearing my engagement ring. It doubles as both my wedding and engagement ring.
I would like a wedding ring. Before we got married we had planned out a bunch of rings, but we cannot afford a wedding ring for me.
I’m okay with this decision. While I’d like one, I don’t need one, and being an incredibly frugal person, I really can’t justify spending money on a hunk of metal.

@Ms_Midori: thank you! yes that’s exactly it. i just don’t think anything looks good with my ering.
@lilbluebird: i’m guessing that’s what i’ll end up doing. get the smallest band i can find and hope i get used to it.
@Hyperventilate: that’s great advice! i’m on a super tight budget myself and will be getting my band off ebay. you can find amazing deals there.

I never wanted a wedding ring either. My engagement ring is pretty big (by my standards) and I’ve got pretty small hands, so I told fiance over and over I didn’t want a ring. He ended up getting me one anyway, which is pretty annoying. The wedding ring and engagement ring look pretty awful together, too (in my opinion), but he likes it, I guess.
I doubt I’ll wear them together at all except for on the wedding day, so I really don’t like the idea of spending hundreds on a piece of metal that’s going to sit in a box forever.

@LadyElva: uggg sorry that sucks. but you’re right, you don’t have to wear it! and it was a really nice gesture on your FIs part. you can always leave the ring in a box for your kids to have later. or in case you change your mind!

Not me. I couldn’t wait to have my set… More bling!

I totally get what you’re saying. I purposely picked a really delicate thin banned ring. The top picture is just the e-ring, and then we found a REALLY thin wedding band to go with it. People will sometimes ask where my wedding band is as it is soldered together with the ering and it is so thin. So maybe something like this is an option for you? I know that you have diamonds (or other gem) so thin band or other gems that fit in with it?
P.S. Ignore the crappy phone picture and fat hand in #2.

@red_pepper_gal: stop it your hands are gorgeous! i take it you don’t own cats? hahah i kid, i’m constantly scratched up. but yes i think the only thing that i won’t hate would be a really really thin band, that would almost look like a split shank.

i’m in a weird other camp: i wear my ering alone on my right hand and 2 thin wedding bands (one is plain, one is an eternity band) on my left. my ering didn’t work with anything but a custom band that i didn’t like so i just split my rings onto different hands

get a band substantial enough to wear on its own – and wear your e-ring on your right hand!
I have a similar ring to yours and i bought a thicker band with 3 rows of pave diamonds since I felt the thin matching band got lost with the e-ring. They look great together but also can wear them apart! 🙂
