My FI and I looked at rings together, and I eventually decided that I like the antique rings because they are unique and timeless. He had a gorgeous ring refurbished for me. It’s platinum with diamond just under a ct. It’s from the 1910’s, it fits me perfectly and basically I’m obsessed with it. Originally (before I got it), I had thought about switching this ring to my right hand or even only wearing the e ring for special occassions, and getting a simple band for my left hand. Well, now that I have it, I love it and don’t want to take it off! I’m wondering what kind of band would look good stacked with this ring? I don’t like the bands that are shaped differently to fit under a ring like this. Would a simple thin band look weird with it because of the shape?

@Runnat: I think it would look great! I was going to suggest that before I read your entire post. How about trying some on and seeing how it looks to get an idea if you like it? It will have a bit of a gap but some ladies love that and you might too!
Your ring is beautiful btw.

I think a curved or contoured band would go lovely

My engagement ring is from the 1920’S and is a very similar shape. I didn’t want a contoured band because I want to wear the band alone sometimes. i went to the jewelry store and tried on 2-3mm plain white gold bands and some with tiny diamonds. The plain bands fit under the side of my ring with just a slight gap on the sides. Blingy bands don’t work and neither does “comfort fit”. For awhile I was thinking about an Infinity band to kind of nestle into the shape of my e-ring.
In the end we got custom mokume gane rings from etsy and they’re so awesome I don’t really mind the gap.
