    I don’t think it really goes together, so I voted no, but what if you wore them on different fingers? (IE: one on your left hand, one on your right)  Then you’d get the best of both worlds.

    I like it because at first it looked like a stack. I literally thought which one is the wedding band? but being that it is one band, it’s a bit wide for my taste. Can you rock them together? Absolutely! It is a pretty unique band and I love that it has a lot of open space rather than just being all solid metal. The openness and mixed metals drew me in. Is it comfortable with your ering? Also now that I think of it, I just ordered my wedding band and the jeweler had me order it 1/4 size larger than my ering. He was pretty insistent that it should be a tad bit bigger if I was going to wear the two rings. May I ask how large your princess cut is? I’m in awe of it-so pretty!

    oneyearout:  I think this is an excellent idea if you’re really in love with the band.

    Otherwise, to be honest, I think it looks a little funky.

    I like the band, but find it too wide for your solitaire; I would use it as a stand alone ring.

    Personally I love it As a wedding set. but your the one who has to live with it. I voted keep it. 

    I would say a if nothing else keep it as a RHR. It’s an amazing ring

    I’m not a huge fan of them together, but you definitely don’t have to wear them together. You can wear them on separate fingers for sure.

    Also, my current e-ring (it’s my mom’s and is a stand-in until my custom one is ready) has a really thick band. FI had it resized prior to the proposal for the size I measured at, and then when he proposed it was waaaaaay too small. The jeweler told us later that the thicker the band, the bigger it needs to be. I think it’s because the larger bands take up more of your finger, and since our fingers taper into smaller sizes, the band ends up hitting the larger end of the taper… does that make sense? I probably didn’t phrase that very well.

    I love it. The band is amazing. With the white gold in the middle of it it matches just enough with the e-ring IMO. The e-ring is also very simple, so the funky band pretties up the whole set. They look great together. Without the white gold on the the band it wouldn’t work, but with it it looks great. I also love unique rings and have one myself. I think you should keep it, regardless of how the poll is going if you love it. Just because many women disagree is no reason to give it up, it’s unique for a reason, right? If you don’t like it then, that’s another story. Also, maybe if you don’t like them together but absolutely love the band you could see about getting a rose gold band for your e-ring?

    nursepeach9:  I voted “Yes, Keep it!” also. I love it. I love the look of a thicker set, overall. And I think that band is spectacular. I love all the details it has, as well as the airy sort of look/feeling it has to it. It would be a fun band to wear on its own, too, as well as looking great with your ERing. I also like how the band is more elaborate, while your ERing is a simpler look, overall.

    If you aren’t sure you will love wearing it all the time, maybe get a plain band, too. That way, you would have two sets you could switch between as the mood strikes you.

    nursepeach9:  I voted no because while I really like the band, it does not go with your ring at all…but I’d keep it as a RHR!

    I LOVE IT! I didn’t even realize it was one ring at first, but I think it’s gorgeous! What really matters is whether or not it’s comfortable for you though.
