    I am having a similar problem. My sister mentioned the two-hand option and I am considering it. I also considered using my e-ring as my wedding ring.

    But what I think I’m going to do is just get a really simply, flat band that fits under my e-ring setting. I may end up wearing the e-ring less often, too, as I’m a teacher.

    Personaly I prefer your e-ring without the enhancer. (In general I think enhancers actually detract, ironically.) If it were up to me, I’d have you pick that pretty ring in the last picture and wear them on separate hands. They are both gorgeous rings!!!

    The ring is gorgeous. And the whole wearing both rings on the same finger is optional – although in our current culture both on one hand is the norm…

    I like the bottom ring best out of what you have put up as options too.

    serendipity24:  I like the last band option so much I’d go with the two hand option. Cause I don’t think that bnd would go with your e-ring, per se, but it’s amazing. So just push your e-ring over to your right hand and get that last band!

    serendipity24:  Hmm, I can see why you’re having trouble! I sort of have a similar problem, but am more likely to go down the ‘accepting the gap’ approach. Normally I’m not a fan of splitting rings between hands, but your band is so slim I think it would make it look unneccesarily chunky and take away some of the elegance. The band (bracelet?!) is so pretty on its own though, that that one one hand and the e ring on the other would look really lovely. Either that, or maybe go for a non-diamond shaped band so it clearly looks like a separate band and doesnt ruin the symmetry in the same way?

    serendipity24:  um I love that first band you posted!!! Wow! I would go for separating them. Just gorgeous! Bling for each hand! I’m not a fan of curved bands like the enhancer.

    Both rings are large beautiful statement pieces – Give them their own fingers!

    I would either use the engagement ring as a wedding ring or move it to the right hand and get a band that looks like the second one (the bracelet) to use in the left hand.

    I would do the one curved band not the two after the wedding have then soldered together i would do WG though this way it blends in with your Ering so its balanced looked for your hubby i know my idea is so not what evryone else is suggesting i dont like moving the ering to the other hand but in some faiths that is what the norm is but to me ering and band together say married sorry to vote agist evryone just my feelings

    If I were you, I wouldn’t separate the rings or opt for enhancers. I’m not really a fan of wearing them on different hands, especially since it would limit my options on my right hand. If you tend to wear the same pieces day after day, that might work, though. Enhancers can look nice, but due to the shape of your e-ring’s center stone, they seem to distract my attention from your e-ring.<br /><br />My top choice would be to use your engagement ring as your wedding ring, or to keep looking for a thin band with a gap that you can live with.
