    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!

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