@xtinafig:  Welcome to the hive and beautiful wedding band! I think you could pull this look off IF you get a halo that is raised so your band could sit flush (so no gap). I have a very chunky wedding band (4 mm, 5 1/4 carat stones) that some people said swallows my dainter e-ring (.65 carat solitaire) but HEY I like it, and I am going to be the one looking at it everyday!! 🙂

I think they would be fine together.  The band has history so to me it goes with anything.

For your wedding band, I think a catherdral solitare with thicker, plain band would go best with it. Both of the rings you posted are gorgeous though. Let us know what you decide!

@xtinafig:  Haha no problem! I think it will look great with a 1.5-2 carat morganite. If you want, just pop into Kohl’s and try on some big cz’s with your band to get an idea! 🙂 I love the mismatched look personally!! My band is like 1.5 carat weight or something like that!! (Only more than 1.25 because the rubies are heavier for the same diameter!).

just my opinion, but I think you should get a spacer band to go between both so they don’t rub against each other. There are some bees on here that have those…maybe they can post some pics for you.

I think both rings are beautiful!!

What a beautiful diamond band! Impressive stone size, looks great on your hand. I think it’s a stunning stand-alone band but I understand wanting to pair it with an e-ring 😉

I think it would be a shame to cover up those gorgeous stones underneath a halo though…perhaps putting a metal band in between the two, as other bees have suggested (a spacer) would bring out the diamond band some more. 

Good luck and come back to post pics! 😉

Both rings are beautiful, I think they would go great together! The e-ring looks like the perfect size and as mentioned before, since the band has history I would be proud to wear it with ANY ring 🙂

@xtinafig:  both rings are absolutely gorgeous! Have you considered wearing your grandmother’s band on your right hand and your morganite ring and band on the other?

I’m in love with your wedding band. I’m partial to a solitaire engagement ring with that style of wedding band, but that delicate morganite ring would look great with it too!

@wrkbrk:  Can I ask where you got your wedding band from? I have been looking online obsessively trying to find a ruby band. I love yours! 🙂

@xtinafig:  I absolutely LOVE both rings! I JUST found out about morganite and I am absolutely obsessed, I wish I would have known about it before. Personally, those two rings together, just not my style. I really think something more dainty would look a lot better with your e-ring. I LOVE the wedding band though and think it would look awesome as a right hand ring.

If you are set on wearing the wedding bed as an actualy wedding band on your left hand, I think a classic tiffany setting solitaire would compliment it the best.

But I REALLY think you should go for that morganite ring, and wear the band as a right hand ring. ugh it’s just SO pretty…I’m kind of obsessed.

That is just my own style, what matters is what YOU like. You are the one that is going to be wearing them the rest of your life! Either way keep us updated, I am curious as to what you choose.
