While I have spent a LOT of time looking at wedding bands, I think collectively the Hive might have seen a *few* more than me. I’m hoping you have some brilliant ideas.
Here’s my unusual e-ring:
and here’s the side view:
So, I think if I got a small enough band it **might** fit flush under the leaves. But that feels like it might be a miracle. I don’t mind a gap, though.
Before I knew what my ering looked like I was really drawn to twisted/braid bands like this:
but that feels like it might be too much with my ring. So now I’m thinking maybe something like this:
or maybe even just a plain white gold (or rose gold?) band.
What are your thoughts, ladies? Do I go super plain to not fight with my ering? Can I get away with another metal color? My ring is super highprofile, so I do want a simplier band that I can wear alone when I go to the beach or something.
My e-ring is maybe .25 or .5 sizes too big right now. It spins kind of a lot, but I also know my fingers are probably smaller right now because it’s freaking cold. I know people say once you add a wedding band, the ering doesn’t spin so bad sometimes. Does this also apply when you have a gap? Or is it just when the rings function as one continuous piece?
Thanks in advance bees!

I actually like the braided band. It reminds me of the vine the beautiful flower sits on. I wouldn’t do mixed metals, though. That might be too much for me.

I would get a skinny simple band IF it would sit flush to the ring. If not, I would look for something that goes more with your e-ring like the twisted one you posted or even a floral to play up that pretty ring!

Out of the two options you posted I like the first one better with your ring.
I think if you like mixed metals it could work (without being “too much”) if it’s a plain gold bands (or one stacked on either side – I love symmetry!). It could add interest, while remaining romantic.

You could get a custom band, that is relatively simple with leaf designs.

@MexiPino: Totally applies when you have a gap. I’m not engaged yet, but I have tried on and worn around gap sets, with the “engagement” ring being .25-.5 too big on me. With a straight band under it, with a gap, both fit great. Whenever my fingers have been slightly swollen, it got a little (but no uncomfortably) tight. I wouldn’t get it resized if I were you, at least until the summer.

I like the twist band. I think that would look really nice or maybe something like one of these which would compliment the style of your e-ring..

@jessicadarling: Thanks! Yeah… it gets HOT here in the summer and we often go up to the moutains, which seems to turn my fingers into sausages… so I was hoping the w-band would be enough.
@SunflowerGarden: Thanks ladies. I think if I can find a twisted band that either doesn’t have stones at all or is only one “vine” of white stones and the other plain it will work well.
I’m totally open to completely different ideas too!

@Ms_Purple: Ooo that second one might work in a shinier metal. Hmmm…

@daffodil89: Ooo.. the second one is exactly what I was thinking of. And the third is a really interesting option! Thanks so much!

I agree, a more dainty band would look really nice sitting flush, otherwise you can go with pretty much anything decorative/unique. Your ring is beautiful!

@MexiPino: omg i love that twisted ring with the black stones! for your ring i would either get a 2mm plain band (probably not mixing metals) or TWO 2 mm half etenity bands with tiny diamonds to add sparkle but not compete (on either side) 🙂

Here is a plain twist ring. But I think the petals of your ring might overhang the twisty part and hide it. Your ering is so beautifully detailed, maybe try a thin plain band or a thin band with tiny diamonds (that way it won’t be so tall and can fit under the ering petals)
