I’m having a hard time picking a wedding band so I thought I’d ask for some help! I have a 3-stone emerald cutengagement ring that I love, but it doesn’t really “go” with any wedding bands. I don’t want to get a curved band and as of right now, I’m not going to get a notch cut in my engagement ring but I may down the road if I end up wearing the rings together a lot. I do like my engagement ring alone, but I want the option to wear them together as well (I don’t mind the gap).
I’ve narrowed it down to a channel set band with round diamonds or horizontal baguettes. I threw in a picture of a plain band as well, but I don’t think I like it and it as much and it would be too plain by itself. Keep in mind, these are really cheap CZ bands so real diamonds will look much better! I’m just trying to chose a style 🙂

No? I added a “none of the above” category haha!

LOVE your e-ring, and chose the horizontal baguettes as the best of your three options. You should keep looking if you don’t love one of these options – you’ll wear this the rest of your life. It’s just going to be hard to find something magnificent enough to match your ring!

I think maybe you should try a thinner band. I like the channel set one but it looks a little off. I think a thinner one might be better. I also really like the plain one.

I actually really love the plain band with your ring. The simplicity accentuates the clean lines of the stones

@TexasAggieMom: Thank you! Any thoughts on other options? I’ve been to a few stores and haven’t really found anything else that works. I might just end up wearing them separately. For some reason this has been the toughest decision of wedding planning for me so far!!

I really like how it looks with the plain band.

@RunnerBride13: Although I’m on this site for tips on planning my daughter’s wedding, I may or may not have a Pinterest board of my own “just in case” I were to remarry at this stage of life (NOT even a remote possibility for now.) The e-ring I have pinned is an emerald cut solitaire, with the baguette band, but I think the stones are not exactly rectangular. It was on a vintage jewelry site called Ruby Lane. Try this link: http://www.rubylane.com/item/599172-13096x20Diamondx20Stackx20Ring/Vintage-14-Karat-White-Gold.
You might also talk with a jeweler about having something custom made to suit your gorgeous e-ring. My daughter is going to use the small stones from her grandmother’s wedding set in a custom made band designed by a family friend who is a jeweler. From what I’ve seen, an honest custom jeweler can make you something at a very competitive price to a mall jewelry story. Hope that helps! Please post your final choice – good luck!

I said the horizontal baguettes look best but damn that plain band looks gooooooood! I understand wanting more bling…I know I did! 😉 Love the gap too btw

You know what, I actually love the plain band with it. It really lets your beautiful emerald cuts take center stage. The others are nice but do compete rather than cohere, does that make sense?

Definitely the second one

@RunnerBride13: gorgeous ring. of those bands, i like the baguette one. the round one is simply out of place with the emeralds. i do like the plain band too. would get a diamond band and a plain band. then you can wear just the bands together.
have you considered a prong set emerald band? full or half? i think it would look amazing with your ering.

I also really like the plain band with your ring.

I would go with the plain band, or a really thin diamond band. Your e-ring is gorgeous.
If you can afford mypinkshoes suggestions, they are gorgeous, but look pretty expensive, but will match your e-ring perfectly!

Love your ring! I’m extremely partial for plain bands so that got my vote but if you want more diamonds I recommend horizontal prong set baguettes. Thats what I thought I orignally wanted. They are more difficult to find but a better compliment to your ring then the channel set.
Here’s one for reference:
