    Kind of! I got a straight silver band because it was significantly cheaper than the matching gold/diamond curved one but the curved one was gorgeous! maybe I’ll get the matching one for a big anni but I doubt it I’m too practical to ask for such an expensive piece of jewelry x) 

     

    also questiom for bees with curved bands that aren’t soldered to your e-ring do they spin/not sit right with your e-ring a lot?

    Commenting to follow. Just bought mismatched (but same color) bands and I’m wondering what others have to say.

    Nope I like mine – complementary but not super-matchy

    Heck, they’re not even the same color. My e-ring is palladium and my wedding band is made of stone, it’s black. (Hematite.) I have a black diamond in my e-ring so I think it looks great together. And my e-ring doesn’t “bulge” too severely at the band level so they sit together just fine.

    Begins search for @MissSweetiepie:‘s husband, to show him this post. 😛

    My wife’s rings were custom made, from gold we already had, so we got a matching band for around $100 more than a straight band probably would have cost (labour and design for the band were $250).

    Since she got her ring, she has found out that a lot of women, with similar shapes of engagement ring, do nt wear a wedding band.

    Mine are both ROSE GOLD but E-ring is 18K (more peachy, closer to yellow gold) and my wedding band is 14K (much more pink/rosey.)

    I actually LOVE the combo and the difference is slight, the 14K band actually makes my Ering look more rose gold.   Most people see my ering and say “Is that yellow gold? it looks different.”  18K rose gold isn’t as obvious.

    @linnylou_88:  I read the poll wrong before I voted – I thought t said “did you get a matching set” so there is one invalid “Yes” vote.  Sorry.

    No regrets. Mine are both platinum and both round diamonds of complimentary size, but my e-ring wasn’t a set to begin with. I could’ve gotten a custom curved band (I have a 3-stone ring), but I wanted something I could wear on its own, especially since I was gifted some fairly substantially sized diamonds that I wanted to use for it.  I wear a small silver band in between (like, super duper dainty, about a 16g wire) between them to protect the prongs from each other, and I love the look.
