    Like you, I think the color difference is what’s throwing it off. It also looks like the diamonds in the band are a bit bigger than the ones in your e-ring band/halo area. I’d aim for a band that has similar sizes of diamonds….

    Also, if you don’t want to go the custom route, have you thought about just a plain straight band? To me, that would look better (ie, intentional) than trying to find a curved one.


    Very pretty ering, btw! πŸ™‚


    ETA: plain straight band being just straight w/ no curve but think it would be pretty with diamonds!

    I don’t think it looks quite right. It might look better if you had one for each side to even it out (not sure how you feel about two bands). I say keep looking. You’ll find something! Have you tried going to local jewelers to try on their curved rings?

    I don’t really care for it, the shape is funny next to your (gorgeous, btw) e-ring. Especially if you’re having doubts, I’d return it.

    The colour difference is pretty noticable.  I think your e-ring would look great with a straight band with a gap in between!

    I don’t think it looks horrible, but the color difference is definitely noticeable! Personally, it would bother me to see the difference in color.

    I didn’t vote because there was no option for “If you don’t like it, don’t keep it”  *I* think it looks fine–that or a straight band would look fine for me.  But it’s your ring–if you don’t like it, return it.  Custom is not that expensive.

    You could add a plain band between the Overstock band and your ring.. I think that might look nice

    If you go to the custom route just make sure to get the diamonds in the band to be the same color as you ering.

    I had the same issue with my halo!!! and after looking at rings at the store some of the prices were crazy! for only one band! I ended up getting them custom and I am SOOOO happy i did! even with the first one it was only 1,000 the second was $700 some of the bands in the store were like 1300! and that was only one! Check out my set πŸ™‚
