cls9q:  I think they would be gorgeous together! 

I also had my E-ring as a size 5.5 and decided to get my wedding band in a 6. However I discovered that I needed to resize my E-ring to a 6 anyway to make it coomfortable to wear. The jewelry shop girl explained that it was because of greater finger surface area being surrounded by ring. Although you might not have this issue as both of my rings are about double the width of yours.

I love sets that match (same metals, same or very similar widths, same stones), but don’t (different pattern of setting stones, slightly different shapes, slightly different stone sizes). I think this band would go really well with your ER – similar enough to look cohesive, but different enough to provide some visual interest.

I think those would look amazing together!  Have you looked at some of the sets on Rosado’s Box on Etsy?  They show a LOT of e-rings with bands, and they make a band in that style… this pic has an extra band, but might give you some idea…

I am so not good at visualizing what they would look like. But I think they’d work. Because like  echomomm  said, they match but don’t. 

As far as sizing….My wedding ring is currently the same size as my engagement ring. But I am going to have it sized up .25 size. Mine aren’t a matching set, and the wedding ring isn’t quite as tall, so it looks like it is tighter than my engagement ring. But if they matched, I would size them the same.

I love the band!  I think it’ll go nicely. 🙂

As for sizing, when I went to look at rings, the salesperson (who was super knowledgeable and helpful!) told me that she prefers to size people a little smaller for engagement rings so the band won’t spin and make your diamond go all wonky sideways all the time, but she bumps people up like half a size for wedding bands.

My rings are the same size and they fit very well. Maybe because they are a matcing set?

Your rings will look gorgeous together.

cls9q:  I think it would look very nice… Similar,  but not identical to the ering.
