I don’t think it will look weird.  I think wedding bands have gotten a little out of control the past few years with all the bling.  Growing up, I never saw anything but plain wedding bands and thought that was what they were “supposed” to look like.  I would just make sure it’s the same metal and a similar width to the engagement ring if you’re worried about them not looking like they belong together.

I’m doing this! My E-ring has diamonds on the band along the top of my finger with some detailing at the sides, so I knew it would be hard to find a diamond band that works well.  Plus I didn’t want a massive amount of bling on my finger.  My band just came in yesterday too!  When I get a chance to try them on together I’ll send you a pic.

I think it will look fine!  I don’t think that my rings are exactly what you’re talking about, but I’ll share a pic anyway.  My e-ring is flanked with two rows of pave set single cut diamonds and my band is just a plain milgrain band.

I don’t think it will look weird at all!

I’m planning on going the other way — e-ring has a plain platinum band, but I want a wedding ring with diamonds.  I’ve tried it on, and I like the look.  I think yours will work as well 🙂

Are you thinking about doing it because of the money? We got a really good price on a diamond eternity band from this ebay seller, about $160 (look for the auction items, not buy it now), it is not perfect but I don´t need perfect, high grade diamonds, I rather spend that money on our house : )

I may be getting annoying, but here´s a pic of my rings:

I don’t think it’s a weird look at all! I picked out a pear shaped solitaire for my engagement ring and now I kinda want a diamond band. The opposite of what look you’re thinking about, but I think it looks really cool.

I am going to have a band with diamonds on it and a plain wedding band. I tried it on in the store and I didn’t think it looked weird! 

It was good for me because I don’t wear a lot of jewelry. I’m not sure that I’d want both bands to have tons of diamonds, at least not at first. I gotta get used to the engagement ring anyways!

I think the less matchy-matchy the better. I like the idea of having dissimilar rings to make it even more obvious. Like, “Look! I’m wearing TWO rings. I’m MARRIED!! Weeee!” =] Haha.

Anyway…
My ring has stones on the side and I fully intend to have a plain band.

Note: This doesn’t mean that having a matching band doesn’t look super GORG! I just like it old school.

I plan on doing two thin diamond bands on either side of my e-ring, like this photo:

 

It is my friends ring, but I am sure she wouldn’t mind me posting this.

Totally agree with Goodie!  There are going to be days when you are volunteering somewhere in the community, working in the yard, birthing a baby in the hospital, etc. and won’t want a bunch of bling.  On those days, you’ll be soooooo glad that you have the plain, solid wedding band to wear alone, without the e-ring.  I think it’s a great idea!!  Plus, if you decide you really need another diamond band, it can be a perfect anniversary gift. 🙂
