I am thinking of this ring for my wedding band, but not sure if it clashes too much with the fancy band on the engagement ring. I love it on it’s own, and it’s an estate piece, so I know it’s closer to one of a kind than my other runner up – a plain white gold band with a milgrain edge.
I plan to continue wearing both rings after the big day.
Also, I know this picture is giant, and few are likely to view things this close up, so this pic is a little more realistic.
sorry the pictures are probably too big… this is my first post that’s not a reply!! So… what do you think?

I don’t think it ‘clashes’ per se, but I do think a plain band may match better.
Remember, it is only you that has to love it! If you do, then get it : )

They certainly both have a unique and antique feel to them!
I think its up to you!
a plain and thin band would compliment and not distract from your e-ring, but not everyone likes things to go as expected 😉

I think it clashes and I’d go with a plain band or one whose style matches the shank of your e-ring.
It’s a beautiful ring, though…both of them!

It’s ultimately up to you, but I think a plain band would look better.

It clashes, but in a good way! Like aqua blue and red… or chocolate covered pretzels. I actually like them together. It looks traditional from further away and then up close it has lots of character.

I like things that aren’t completely matched, it gives a unique and vintage feel in this case. If you like it, that’s all that counts…in the zoomed out pic you can’t really see anything but the gold but up close I love the intricate design of the band with the swirls and the milgrain. I think going with a plain band with a milgrained edge will look pretty much the same from a distance.

i really like the way they look together! The miligrain edging is subtle enough not to clash It looks vintage and unique, but I’m not a huge fan of matchy-matchy sets.

I love your e-ring! It’s so unique and I’m a sucker for swirls so of course I love it. I think they look good together, and a plain band would look good too.

Thanks for your input, everyone. Here is more of the backstory… Fiance found this at a jeweler and really liked it and thought it went well with my e-ring. I liked the band on it’s own, but didn’t think it was a good match with my e-ring. But I also didn’t want to disappoint him, and he felt strongly that I should have something with more visual interest than the plain milgrain band.
So, this morning we went back to the jewelers (a different one, we’ve been back & forth between two), and I found my band!
It’s not what I expected I’d have at all, but I love it. It’s simple enough, yet strong enough to go wtih the e-ring, and even though it’s so slender, it stands by itself all right as well. I also like that the overall profile of both rings stays so small on my short little fingers! I wish I’d done a distance shot, but that will have to wait until it’s delivered in my size.
Now the only issue is that I found it online for about half of what we paid in the store… But hopefully we can negotiate some of that into a discount on FI’s ring which we still have to finalize.

I think a bold e-ring can be complemented nicely by a classy but less bold band. Like you, I struggled to find a band I liked. Here’s what I ended up with.
Your choice is really nice!

What kind of stone is that in your e-ring Ms. Snax? I really like the band!

I like them together. I don’t like matchy matchy!
