I’m engaged but I do not have a ring yet. I however do have a ring picked out that I love very much and am just waiting for Fiance to pull funds together to purchase it. After showing it to my beloved mother, her only response to it was, “What about a wedding band to go with it?” I honestly hadn’t thought about a band because the wedding is three years away but the more I look at it, I start to wonder if a band will look good with it because there would be gabs from the e-ring having the crisscross thing. What are your thoughts about putting a band with it?

Maybe you could get a band that was custom made? I didn’t think about wedding bands either and it made it a bit difficult finding the right one after we got engaged. And although I didn’t have one custom made (I found a band that worked with my e-ring), it was definitely a possibility at the jewellers we went to.

@alyssaC: you may have to have one custom made or enquire if they have made one which fits closely. I know a few people who have said to me they wish their wedding band fitted nicely with their engagement ring. Mine has a slight indentation on each side and I am getting a wedding bad made to fit. Sorry the photo is so big, tried to make it smaller.

I also when looking for rings did not think that. Had a hard time finding a band to match mine. So it’s good that your mom brought it up.

Perhaps a contour wedding band which is one that is curved to allow for the design of the ring.

maybe you could just do a really thin white gold plain band next to it. I think that would look really pretty and not detract from the ring at all.

@blondemotives: i like this idea – just a simple plain band.

For a unique shape like that, you don’t have to have a wedding band. I’m going bandless since it wouldn’t make sense to add anything to mine:

Hey there, the center of your ring looks like mine. Flower composite!! I purchased mine on purpose so the wedding band would have a gap when worn with the e-ring. I love that look, which I think is so vintage-y 🙂 They are being soldered together before my wedding. Exciting!

Hey ik this is an older post but I have the same engagement ring. It’s a beautiful ring and I’ve chosen a contoured band to go with it. I hope this gave you inspiration on trying it out!
