Thanks to ya’ll who have been helping me as I waited for my rose gold ring. Now for the band. Here is a picture of the rings I’ve had just to make a short story long. This way you can see how the bands were worn before. The band closest to my hand is my mom’s 18k white gold band and the one from our wedding day. It’s neat because it has three angles that fit up against her emerald step cut back in the day. Next is my rose gold 1.8 cushion that is the ring in question today. Above that is my original yellow gold diamond radiant cut ring. Above that is a 2ct CZ in white gold. At the tip is my diamond anniversary band in white gold that doesn’t fit anymore over my knuckle. So the question(s)is are this:
1) I would like a rose gold wedding band but then thought that maybe the original white one is just fine. I just don’t know about that much two-tone. Yes? No?
2) Here is the leaf band I like in yellow and rose combined.
3) Matching grooved rose gold band.
4) Satin gold
(5~ for those who saw the seed leaf band I have posted from Etsy…I can’t find it anywhere! If you ever see it let me know. THAT is the one I love. 🙁
6) Resize the anniversary white gold band and wear that

Listen, I love your mom’s white gold up against your rose. I wouldn’t be a huge fan if it werent for the beauty of your solitaire, but I’d get a rose gold leafy band for another finger. Keep it simple for your wedding ring. Its kept closest to your heart for a reason, and I think it makes mixing and matching silver and white gold and steel watches much easier if you have both colors anyway. The wavy rings are tempting, but they are thinner and will bend over time, the white gold will stay durable and is easier to hammer back into shape.

I LOVE your mom’s white gold up against your rose gold ring! I plan on having a rose gold wedding band with my white gold ring. I love mismatching. I think its a great idea to incorporate your moms ring and agree with other poster in getting the rose gold leafy band for another finger.

i love the leaf one.. but not sure how well it would sit side by side? that may be something you can only tell by trying it on.
The white gold also looks lovely and because the prongs are white I dont think thats a no-go?

Thank you everyone!
@puppiekisses: Really good point. We did go up to Denver to go jewelry store shopping last night. No one had any rose gold bands to try on except for Nordstrom go figure. I do think I will get a thin rose band –maybe 1.5- 2 mm. I love the extra rose look. The more I stare at the original white–it just doesn’t look right to me. Maybe as a spacer? It’s a 2mm so that could look pretty if they match.

I love your Mom’s ring with your engagement ring!! I think mixing metals is fine, although it’s a personal preference I guess. I love that it was your mom’s, I love that it’s the one you used in your wedding and I love the simplicity behind both rings, the solitaire and the band, but still unique because of the metals.

I looooove rose gold!!! It is sweet you wear your moms ring, if you decode to maych ( which is what I would pick) I would just wear moms ring on another finger =]

Okay, I FINALLY have a wedding band. Listen to this miracle: I went into Goodwill to get my son an Xbox game. I glanced in the jewelry case and that’s when I saw it… What are the odds that it was not only ROSE GOLD but in MY size? It is the perfect tiny style with just the right amount of flaw to give it the antique charm I adore. I am following what Summer said above…mom’s band is on my right hand now.
