Your ring is gorgeous!!!! I think a thin band may look good, but your ring may also overppower it! No harm in trying things on though!

@crava:  Very pretty! I think the most important thing to consider here is if your fiance’s feelings will be hurt if you changed it. I’ve heard many women say that they started off hating their ring (so it’s lucky that you already like it!) and grew to love it because it was a symbol of that moment in their lives, and it was something that their fiance picked out specifically for them.

If he doesn’t care at all, then I’d say definitely do what will make you happiest. Are you the kind of person that will eventually not care, or is it going to bother you every day for the rest of your life? If it’s the latter, I’d really consider changing it. My personal style would be to do a thinner band, and then an eternity ring as the wedding band, because I wouldn’t want it to look “too blingy” if that’s even possible. But if you got a thinner band, you may need the side profile to have less diamonds as well to balance it out.

here’s an example, this is mine. It’s still got the halo, and diamonds down the side with a thin band. But there aren’t any diamonds on the side, I wanted it to be really girly and have scroll design in it. Even with mine though, I’m not sure if an eternity ring would be a little too much. Eternity rings are beautiful on their own, but in my opinion they can sometimes clash with other rings.

Most importantly: Congrats on the engagement! This is an exciting time in your life, try to focus on the fact that your fiance actually has good taste, my friend’s fiance got her a yellow gold ring with a marquise diamond when she wanted a round diamond on white gold haha….so it could be a lot worse!

Your ring is gorgeous. I think a thin eternity band on both sides will look wonderful. If you love sparkle, then go for it. You can always start with one and then add another later. I love large stones, rings, purses, etc so my opinion is totally biased!
