I need some help picking out a wedding band that pops out. I have a CZ version of the band I want to order. I love the band by itself, but next to my E-Ring, I think it gets a little lost and makes the set look lopsided-ish (the split shank and the straight band look off to my eye). Other problem is that my fingers are really small (around size 3.5-3.75ish) and my ring already has a lot going on, so I want to keep it simple. Good news is my setting is pretty high so most bands at least will sit flush.
I have a few ideas that I found through Google– what do you think works best? Also, a friend suggested I just not wear my set together. Not sure!! Help!
Option #1: Bigger Diamonds on Band (So pretty but I think it matches round cut rings much better)
Option #2: Plain Band
Option #3: Keep the one I already have/wanted to begin with. It is fine.
Option #4: Just don’t wear your complete set all the time (I want to avoid this if possible. I’m pretty sentimental and a wedding band is special to me).
Opption #5: Other. Please help and give some suggestions!

what about two thin dimaond bands on either side?
I think the band you currently have looks lost because it’s the same style–channel set. Maybe try a pave.
I would go back to the jewelers and try different styles on if you’re not happy.

MsIsopropyl: hmm I have the same dilemma…I have a split shank with a lot going on. I have considered not doing a wedding band at all, but I’ve always wanted one because it was important to me to have a WEDDING band/sentimental value…something signifying the actual marriage if that makes sense.
Not sure if it’s ur style, but have u considered a different metal or stone? Like rose gold with diamonds or keep the white with hubbys birthstone instead of diamonds. This may help it stand out. I’ve considered maybe doing a rose gold to compliment the touch of rose gold in my ering. I’ve also thought of getting abwhite gold pave band with FIs birthstone instead of diamonds…except his birthstone is emerald so I’m not sure how that would even look with rose gold :/

MsIsopropyl: I too am in a similar situation. Our split shank design is very similar and I’ve not yet found a diamond band that looks decent. I think I will end up with a coloured stone band, possibly emeralds, or my dream stones which are hard-to-find sea-green paraiba tourmalines. The only other thing that looks reasonable is actually a plain band, but I want a band with a bit of pop. And because I’m a smidgen OCD, I’ll probably get two so I can have one each side for balance!

Thank you, bees!
AussieEncore: kortizi0: I’m glad I’m not the only one! I never even considered using different stones or metals (stupid me)! That is absolutely brilliant. His birthstone is tourlamine/opal (October). No idea if I can even get those in a band, but maybe something close to it? Kortizi0, I feel you on the band. That’s why I’m not really a fan of not wearing it– I too am sentimental like that.
And Aussie, I feel you about the OCD! That’s why mine feels a little “off” to me. Though I think I will have to live with it and just not think about it. Sigh! 🙂
I’m going to stop by a different jewelry store and see what they can do!

Try a scalloped style wedding band, if the wedding band is slightly different than the ering band it’ll compliment it without being matchy.
