Soooo okay, no one told me that your wedding band and engangement rings should match so you can wear them on the same finger once you tie the knot. (Or they probably did, I just didn’t listen or don’t remember) So, with that being said, I’ve ended up with two rings that are completely different! Whoops.
I currently wear them both but would eventually like to wear them on one hand but feel they would look silly as they are stacked on top of each other. Obviously I know NOTHING about this stuff but many of you seem to have a good eye for this sort of thing.
(sorry pictures are so big….)

Very pretty rings, can you post a picture with them on the same finger? Also what kind of stone is that in you ering, the color is amazing? For what it is worth my rings dont match but I think they go together.

I can see them now!
Both are very pretty! But I don’t think they would look good together. I’d take them to a jeweler to see if they can curve your current band to fit your ering.

@countrygirlatheart: It’s Laminar. =) I’ll try and post one later of them together. At work right now and it’s not the easiest process to do from here!
@JessMorgan777: They can do that?!? That would be great! I love the swooshy curve of my e-ring.

@redheadedstranger: It depends on the jeweler. A good one could. I lesser one would tell you to buy a whole different ring.

You don’t HAVE to wear them together but if you really want to I agree with PPs – a good jeweler might be able to curve your diamond band. Good luck!

@JessMorgan777: Good to know! To be honest I’ve never been to a jeweler in my life so I wouldn’t know any different if they were trying to get me to buy a new one, which I don’t want to do. I’m cheap that way. =p
@BearyLovely: I was under the impression that they look odd being on both hands… not because there’s anything wrong with wearing rings on both hands but because they don’t really match.

If I were you, I’d rock the engagement ring on your right hand and wedding ring on the left!

@JessMorgan777: This is a good idea!
There’s also nothing wrong with wearing them on two different hands. Your rings are lovely!

@redheadedstranger: @JessMorgan777: sorry, I hate to be a naysayer, but if it’s a shared prong ring, I actually don’t think any jeweler would agree to curving that band. especially not the rather sharp S curve it would take to fit with that e-ring. it would create gaps which would make the stones would fall out. maybe they could add metal to fill in the gaps, but adding to the challenge would be the fact that it would be hard to curve it that much with bezels. I’m guessing the entire process would be either impossible or very expensive.
my guess is that having the stones reset into a custom built setting would look better and have more security.
but honestly, I think your wedding band looks really pretty on it’s own. I’d rock wearing them on separate hands.

Well that settles that! Thanks a lot ladies! =) I have been wearing them both since my wedding in Sept but since I don’t have an eye for this sort of thing wasn’t sure if I was doing it right or not. haha I’ll just keep wearing them one on each hand as I’ve been doing.

@redheadedstranger: why don’t you take a picture with both of them together on your ring finger…. Is your center stone Turqouise? It’s pretty.
