While engagement ring shopping, I fell in love with an antique french cut champagne diamond platinum eternity band. I’m looking for an engagement ring that will go with the band! I like the vintage / antique look, but I haven’t been able to find a good match yet. I will mostly wear the wedding band by itself, but I’d like to be able to wear the engagement ring and band together sometimes and have them look good together.
Here’s the wedding band:
Here’s a photo showing it with an antique ring and you can see how it doesn’t go together very well:
Thanks for your help!

I think anything would look good with that band-honestly! Sorry I’m not much help but I really think you could rock any look with that band

I’d go around looking in antique jewelery shops. Where in CA are you? Lang Antiques in SF is pretty reputable. There are a lot in the state, that’s just one example in my area.

Look around at custom options. They may not be as much as you think.

I think blondemissmolly is bang-on with an old european cut diamond (OEC) – it looks vintage, and will allow you to go the more “solitaire” route so that they sit somewhat flush

My WR is also a French cut eternity. (I’ve longed for one ever since I first spied my grandmother’s, which sadly I did not inherit). 🙁
Keep trying different antique rings until you find just the right combination. My ER is a 1925 sapphire w/baguettes and I love them together. I could give a toss that they don’t sit flush. 🙂
It’s hard to tell by the pix, but does your band fit perfectly? If it’s a teensie bit too big it might be tricky to line it up with another ring.
@BlondeMissMolly: That first picture made me GASP. One of the reasons I try to stay off Pricescope, oh the ring envy…

Blondemissmolly nailed it in my opinion
