I love my halo oval e-ring but when I tried on the matching 2mm diamond wedding band I was underwhelmed. I felt like the halo was completely lost because of the extra same-style bling behind. So now I’m thinking I need a contrasting wedding ring. I tried larger and smaller diamonds, baguettes, etc in white gold, still looked wrong. So not diamonds. I could go the plain band option, which looks ok, but I’d rather have something with a bit more wow-factor for when I just wear my wedding ring alone. I would be grateful for suggestions, especially with pics! Ideally 2mm wide band. I know I’ve seen some beautiful gemstone stacking bands on Bee’s posts. Thanks ladies!!

I do, and I’m happy to show it off (just got married a week and a half ago)! Originally I was going to get a matching diamond eternity band also, but I started thinking about blue sapphire because I love them and there is some family significance (my grandmother who passed away giving me a sapphire and diamond pendant- my favorite piece of jewelry- as well as my partner’s deceased grandfather loving blue sapphire. I wanted a touch of “something extra,” and I think it does the trick for me. Not the most beautiful photo, as the sapphires are a brilliant blue in good light, but here they are:

AHart77: Thank-you! That is EXACTLY what I was hoping to see! It really looks great. I am thinking emeralds as they are a family tradition (although I know they are a bit soft) or else sapphires. Thanks again for being so helpful and congratulations on your wedding!

No photos yet (becuase it doesn’t exist, just started the custom order process) but mine will be sapphires! Commenting to follow, I love the look of color with sparkly engagement rings!

AussieEncore: Have you considered green sapphires since they’re a bit harder than emeralds? They’re very beautiful. You could also try green spinel or lab-created emeralds! Emeralds aren’t that soft in regards to the mohs hardness scale, but they way they form in nature makes them prone to chipping.
