I need advice! My e-ring is 2 ct diamond, solitaire, round with white gold band & I’ve fallen in love with with a .9 ct diamond white gold wedding band. Personally, I love both rings together, but when I showed a picture to a friend of mine, she seemed to think it was “too much” (I guess she means too gaudy) to wear both together on one hand & suggested that I wear my e-ring on my right hand after I’m married. Truthfully, I wanted a diamond band because I know I won’t always want to wear my e-ring after we are married except maybe for special occassions etc and probably for a while right after we get married (but not, like, 3 years down the road when I’m running around after a kid 🙂 ) And I also loved the look of the gap between the rings–it seems really romatic & vintagey to me.
Bees what do you think? Is it too gaudy? HELP!

No doubt, you’ve got some serious finger coverage going on, but I think it’s pretty fantastic. Too blingy? Meh! Rock them, I say!

Together! I think, personally, it’s strange to wear e-ring and bands on seperate hands. It doesn’t look, from the picture, like you’ll end up looking like a Real Housewife wearing them on the same finger – it’ll make you look married!
Also: I have a 2 ct. solitaire – we’re almost twinsies!

Only people who think it’s to much are the people who can’t pull it off…LOL….and it’s really not that over the top, it still look tasteful and classy. So I would ROCK your ring and your band and let the haters hate all they want

I think it looks great, and that you should do what you want. And don’t feel insecure about it. I’m one of the last of my friends to get married, and while I have opinions about their rings, I know that what I like and what they like won’t always be the same. They can have their erings and wedding bands, and I’ll get what I like. Your friends will figure it out, too.

I think they look fine either way… one thing that you do want to take into consideration when making this decision, is do the two rings rub each other at all “on the diamonds”… that can be a HUGE problem. Because if they do, you could end up losing stones… and depending on your Ring Warranties, could make replacement null & void. I have been told this by several Jewellers as I am on the hunt for my special ring / duo. So something to bear in mind…
PS… By the time the kids come, you might be surprised how accustomed you’ve come to wearing the rings, and don’t find wearing it all that big a deal. As someone who was married the first time for 20+ years, and rarely took my rings off… that was my case. OR you could indeed make the choice just to wear your wedding band. I am considering buying both a “sparkling” and “plain” wedding bands for just this reason… (ok not the kids part) but because my SO and I are very active semi-retired folks, who do a lot of stuff where I may not want to wear the whole “bling”… like gardening, scuba diving etc. On those occasions, I’ll just wear the plain wedding band, and lock up the glitter in a “safe” place.

I love the multiple/stacked bands look! I’d totally do it. Actually you’re tempting me to buy a few more bands, too. hehe.
