    It’s too much for my taste but if you like it, go for it!

    @SoNLoveWithHim:  I think whatever you like, go for it! Personally, that would be too much coverage for me and it overwhelms the e-ring. I would probably go with something more simpler so that the e-ring stands out on its own.

    I don’t like it. Also you might want to make your poll options (answers) instead of questions.

    There aren’t actually real options in the poll. A person can either say they like them or that they compliment the ring (which means they like them). I prefer the look of a single band.

    I think it’s wayyyy too much metal I think you should keep looking your ring is already pretty substantial so I would go for something smaller that will compliment it. Those bands are overpowering.

    I’m not a big fan of double wedding bands with split shank rings. It’s just a bit too much going on IMO. I think it would look great with a single band.

    I don’t mind the two bands – I like the symmetry. I also can’t tell where your knuckle is though. If you can comfortably bend your fingers and you like the look, go for it!

    Way too much going on there for my taste. I’d prefer a simple band that doesn’t try to compete with the ering.

    I honestly think it’s too much. The engagement ring alone is too much for me (so sorry, I am just being as honest as possible since you stated you wanted honest opinions). If I had an e-ring similar to yours, I would consider not having a wedding band(s). I have a few friends who have split shank rings and all of them opted not to add wedding bands. 

    BUT what matters most is what you think! If you like having both bands and you don’t mind the coverage, go for it. 🙂

    It’s not my taste. I also don’t care for the new trend of a band on each side. I personally think rings look better asymmetrical.  I also think that your engagement ring has FAR too much going on for two bands, especially half eternities AND metal showing on top.  I suggest finding a very simple band that would either leave a gap, allowing it to be easily distinguished from the engagement ring, or a plain curved band if you don’t like gaps.
