long story short- I have been wearing a “wedding band” with my engagement ring (On the top of my engagement ring as in the 2nd pic)
well I picked up my actual wedding band today. I’m worried that the look of 3 rings, and having 2 bands ruins the look of engagement ring. Initially I fell in love with engagement ring because of how dainty it was, because I have small fingers. I’m worried it looks too gaudy.
What should I do once we are married? Just wear 1 band, 2 bands, with or without the engagement ring.

@Lilyflower: i don’t think it looks gaudy. i love bling and i wear a lot of it too. some people may not like so much bling, then they don’t have to wear it. if you like it, that’s all that matters.
i often wear my rings differently, depending on where i’m going.

@Lilyflower: I personally think your ring looks better with the 2 bands than with just the one.

I too like it with both bands… it’s totally different! 🙂

I really like it with two bands! I’m looking forward to our first anniversary so that I can get another band for my ring. Then again, I typically prefer things to be symmetrical 🙂

I really like dainty rings too and have decided not to get a wedding band for this reason. I love my ring so much that I hate to change the look. I vote you just wear your engagement ring by itself. If you’re set on having to have a wedding band though I would just wear one. Two is way too much IMO.

I vote TWO BANDS! Your e-ring is defined enough that you can still see it clearly plus the bling looks symmetrical and awesome!

I have a similar three stone ring and do not wear a band with it, because I thought the look was overwhelming. I just wear my wedding band on my right hand, but it is not curved like yours.

I think it would look great with a (one) plain curved band in gold or platinum (can’t tell which you have). Those two bands are dainty though so you can pull it off if you love the look. You may want to check the grading on the new band. It shows more color than the other two and if that’s a concern, best to change it while its still in the exchange period.

IMO, there ought to be only one wedding band, as there is only one husband (I assume), so yes. Two looks wrong to me and especially when they are all gemmy rings, really overwhelming.

I personally think your engagement ring looks good by itself or with one band. I also have a three stone ring and just ordered a contoured band with diamonds across to go with it (similar to yours).

I like the idea of wedding band + anniversary bands, but I’d stack them below my e-ring closest to my palm. This looks great with my ring, but it’s a simple solitaire. In your case, I would only wear one band, but with the wedding band closest to the palm rather than the tip of your finger. I think that would bring out the beauty of your set the most.

Go with two rings! I think you’ll be happier.
I was like you when I got my e-ring. I loved how delicate it looked. When we selected my enhancer that looks like two rings, I was worried that it looked gaudy too. Once I got used to it, though, I realized it didn’t look gaudy at all, and I much happier with the symmetry of it than I would have been with a wedding on only one side of it.

@Lilyflower: Personally, I would not wear it together because I feel it would be too big and much for my own taste. That being said, I think they look good together on someone else. It is very much personal taste. If it bothers you that much just wear the one ring with the engagement ring. It’s up to you, but I don’t think it looks bad.

I think it looks stunning
