    I agree, it’d be helpful to see your engagement ring.

    However, given the great return policy, why not order it and actually see how they look together? If you can return it anyway, then you and your fiance can look at them on your finger together and make a mor informed decision.

    I, like you, wanted something a little unique to go with my traditional solitaire. My fiance didn’t like the ring that I picked out at first, when I showed him a pic of it online, but fortunately I could bring him in to the local store to show it to him in person. He came around and is now almost as excited about it as I am. I was really glad I stuck to my guns and went with something I was excited about!

    I think it looks ok….i don’t like that it’s wider than your engagement ring necessarily. It’s ok, but I”m not totally sold on it either.

    Honestly I don’t love it next to your e-ring.  The diamonds on this particular ring are set really high (nearly half a cm off your finger) – if you look at the picture from the side, there is an actual gap or airspace between the stones and the rest of the band… which might be contributing to how “wide” it looks in the pics next to your e-ring.  I think most higher quality eternity bands have the diamonds sitting really low.  Just something to watch out for. 

    Here is an example of how I believe this type of setting “should” look…  the stones are nearly “flush” with the rest of the band.

    I’m not personally a big fan of that setting – it looks sort of… spiky? But it doesn’t look bad next to your ring at all, and if YOU like it, that’s what really matters!

    I think one reason I don’t like it is because it is too big for your finger.  Can that kind of ring be resized because of the prongs or would you risk loosing the stones?

    You have such a gorgeous engagement ring and the band in the picture seems to overpower it. Maybe the band’s too big? Maybe a thinner band would add sparkle rather than take away from your ering?

    Does the ring fit your finger? It just seems out of proportion with the e-ring. I think that something with a more flush setting (channel or pave) like prettyflowers suggested would be good. Possibly a half-eternity band where the diamonds don’t wrap around quite so far would be pretty too. This is a really random example but maybe something like this.

    I have to admit, I don’t think it compliments your engagement ring as well as it  should. I agree with the other ladies, it looks really big and wider than your finger and e-ring. Looks like the ring should should be a little lower and more flush against your ring. Just my opinion though, take it with a grain of salt!

    I don’t love it with your e-ring. They don’t look “married”.
