Hi bees, need your valuable opinions. I have this beautiful art deco OEC illusion set vintage ering but I’m having a hard time finding a matching and dainty wedding band that isn’t too pricy $250 or less. So I decided to go cheaper to Bittersweet jewelry. I don’t care if my band is real gold or not, care more about it matching my ering and not overpowering or too boring (plain band doesn’t go with it).
What do you think about micropave band I found? $66 after taxes and has a vintage feel I think? Or another option is to keep looking. thoughts or suggestions?
I have 7 days to exchange the ring. I tried channel set but it’s too heavy with my ering. Most eternity bands are uncomfortable, the one in pic is more comfortable since it’s micropave.

akml25: I think it looks really pretty with and without your engagement ring!! Especially for that price too!

Wow thanks forfor the input everyone!
@vintagefemme: I considered other art deco styles like the ones you sent links for. They are really cute but when I tried them it seemed to distracting from my ering. Maybe because the ering’s goes from narrow to bigger near center then narrow again, it didnt match alternating shape because it left gaps between my rings. And most are eternity bands they were too thick for my short fingers too. Thanks for suggestions!

akml25: I would personally go for a plain metal band. I think the wedding band now is too….modern? for lack of a better word it doesn’t go well together. I love a mismatched set, when it makes sense. This to me looks like the wedding band was an afterthought. I think a thin, simple band would be really elegant and showcase your engagement ring.

I think it looks very pretty. Suits your ering really well. I’d just be concerned at the durability if it isn’t gold, platinum etc simply because I would assume you want your wedding band to last a lifetime and remain as beautiful as it is now. Just food for thought 🙂

Maybe a thin carved band?

If you like it, I don’t think that it looks bad but I too think that a plain metal band or engraved band would go better with it.

What about LOGR on ebay and etsy? I got a lovely white gold band off them with micropave diamonds. It was $US 187.
That said, I don’t mind the band you have, but it might be a little too wide or something? It’s a bargain for $66 if it’s gold.
PS: Lovely e ring! 🙂

akml25: I love your ering! I am not really a fan of that band with it, though. I think something more vintagey would look better.
