So I’m having a little bit of wedding band regret…kind of. I originally had a cushion cut peach champagne sapphire e-ring from EidelPrecious, and I chose her dainty flower eternity band design for my wedding band. I thought they looked fantastic together and I loved the way the wedding band complimented my engagement ring. Such a fabulous combo! (see below)
Then after about a week of receiving my ring I noticed a pretty large inclusion in my center stone and it really bothered me so I decided to send it back. I loved Eidel’s work so much that I decided to order another ring from her instead of throwing in the towel. She did not have another cushion cut stone to fit my setting so I decided to go with an oval halo instead. And let me just say…I AM OBSESSED! I actually like it even more than my original cushion cut ring and I’m so happy with it! But now I’m feeling like my flower eternity band is a little too much for it 🙁 (see below)
Don’t get me wrong…I LOVE my flower eternity band and I’ve gotten so many compliments on it but I just feel like the matching diamond band might compliment it better. I think I feel this way because an oval is so classic and perfect on its own and I’m afraid the flower band is just a little too overpowering…like it loses it’s delicate look because there’s too much going on. I currently wear my oval by itself and my wedding band as a RHR simply because I’m just not loving them together. Maybe it’s because I’m so used to it with the cushion cut and now it just looks weird to me? I don’t know what it is 🙁 I just feel the oval looks much better standing delicately on its own. Maybe I’m crazy or something! Thoughts?? I would appreciate your opinions regarding my wedding band dilemma and please share photos of your delicate wedding bands as well! Plain or sparkly please 🙂

I just want to say I love your wedding band with your pretty oval stone! I think it’s very dainty and feminine still! ^^

Noo!!..it looks awesome with the oval!..I think it looks better with it than the cushion..your just second guessing your choice because of all the problems you had with the last stone then they didnt have another cushion. Enjoy your set it is truely perfect! What about the band seems too much?..I love the flowers!

I don’t find that wedding band over powering at all! It’s delicate enough to blend well while still standing out on its own. In fact a diamond band can sometimes blend too much leaving you unable to tell if your wearing a wedding band. The whole combo is perfection in my book.

I do think the flower band would make an awesome rhr..if your really not happy with them together then maybe you should get the diamond band..you needto be happy with your wedding set..although im wondering did these feelings start after you looked at pictures of your ring eith the matching band on her website?..comparison is the theif of joy..but if your 100% positive that you would rather have the diamond wedding band to where with your engagement ring then go for it!

newlywedcoastiewife: I think it still looks delicate! It’s so dainty and feminine. I love this look! The different textures still allow you to see the lines of your engagement ring without it blending together to look like a big mass. I also think that the flower band would stand alone better, if you plan on only wearing the band sometimes. I would totally keep it like this. It’s to die for!
However, if you truly feel that you would prefer a dainty diamond band, then you could get one of those and save the flower band for an anniversary? Or wear it as a RHR? A very small diamond band probably wouldn’t be too crazy expensive, depending on budget. Because, it’s not that you’re having second thoughts about how pretty it is, more that you’re not sure it’s the perfect complement.

I think your flower band looks perfect with the oval ering; I would deffinitely wear them together, but what matters is what you like.

It might just be the photos, but there appears to be a slight difference in the color of the stones. I think the band was a phenomenal match to the other stone. They colors were so complimentary, and with the slight change in color they just don’t set each other off quite so much. It’s not that it doesn’t look good now, it’s just not extraordinary like it was before.

I loved them together, until I saw the oval on it’s on. It does look prettier and more delicate by itself.

I love both of your rings, but I totally understand what you’re saying. If I were you, and my DH would agree, I would also purchase the dainty, matching, diamond band and then wear all three of them. You could stack them, with your flower band first, new wedding band, and e-ring, or wear the flower band as a RHR anniversary ring. When you felt like just wearing your flower ring and your oval e-ring, you could do that, too. You may even want to try wearing the flower wedding band betwen your new wedding band and your oval e-ring.

If it makes any difference, I love your set so much that after I saw it yesterday I immediately PM’d the seller about band like that :). I do think it woud look nice with a diamond band insted of the flowers, but much less unique and interesting. Still gorgeous, and if you want to keep it simple a great choice. I think stacking would not be the best if you are worried about losing the delicate feeling, but I could be wrong!

I think the flower ring is still gorgeous with the oval.

ddhb2007: I agree, in the pics it does look like the color of the wedding band might compliment the cushion cut stone better, but I’m wondering if the cut of the stone allowed the pink tones to shine through?
newlywedcoastiewife: As others have said, the combination is beautiful, but you should do what makes you happy. If every time you look down you wish you had a different band, then it’s worth getting a thinner band! It may just be the shape of the stone though – the square edges of the original stone align nicely with the bands.

I love it either way! Your ering and band are both soo gorgeous! I am so jealous of your set! I actually like having a distinction between my ering and band so it doesn’t all just blend in but if you love the pave band more than def get it! You can switch it up and wear either or stack them! I think they would look amazing stacked!
