i am trying to decide what to do for my wedding band. Originally I was going to get a diamond eternity band that is similar to the band on my engagement ring, but I am starting to think it might look a little boring. I want something more unique and that will really enhance the beauty of my engagement ring. My fiancé suggested a sapphire and diamond band, and initially I was opposed to it. But, I am really starting to warm up to the idea, especially because it was his idea and sapphire is the birthstone of the month in which we are getting married (September). I’d love to see photos of your diamond engagement rings with colored gemstone wedding bands. And, here is a photo of the type of wedding band I am considering. Thanks!

And here’s my engagement ring for reference!

Lovely ring. I rarely admire halos but I’m going to make a massive exception in your case. It looks great and makes your hand look beautiful.
I think that you simply need to try on lots of wedding bands of different styles – plain, diamond, diamond and sapphire, pave, prong, channel. See what suits your hand and your engagement ring. Try bands on with and without your engagement ring and make sure the band looks good on its own as well as with the engagement ring.
The delicacy of the ring, the appropriate size of your diamond and the cut corners of your halo all make your ring very interesting. Don’t overdo additional bling. More bling isn’t necessarily better. In fact most of the time it just overdoes everything.
I assume your centre stone is a radiant. They have a special sparkle and depth to them. It’s almost like looking into another world. Don’t spoil the look with too many different types of cut. Radiant, brilliant and baguette might just be too much.
Just try on lots of bands and you’ll eventually find the right one for you.

Ls413: your ring is beautiful! I agree with supersleuth about trying lots of rings on-you might surprise yourself and fall in love with something that you would never have thought you would like. I have a half eternity diamond band for my wedding band and half eternity sapphire and diamond band. We loved having sapphires as it is my husbands birth stone and we got married in September

Ls413: I love your e-ring and I think that wedding ring would be really pretty with it! What is the profile of your ring like? Will the bands sit flush or will you have a gap?

Ls413: I love your halo! It has an antique, Art Deco feel to it. I would choose something from the Art Deco period to pair with it (either an antique or nice reproduction). Etsy has some great finds, also try Ruby Lane. I think going with sapphires/diamonds will look stunning!

Supersleuth: thanks for your reply. My center stone is actually a cushion modified brilliant that was set in an octagonal shaped bezel. But, similar to a radiant, it has that sense depth like you are looking into another world. I agree that simpler might be better in this case. I generally like a lot of bling, but when I tried on diamond eternity bands with large diamonds, I felt that they really took away from my engagement ring.
@FutureDrAtkins: the profile is similar to a Tiffany legacy setting, and the band will ultimately sit flush with the engagement ring. It’s funny that you should ask, though, because when we had the ring made, I told the jeweler that this was very important to me and it was actually made incorrectly. So, right now the engagement ring will not sit flush with a band. Over the summer, the jeweler is going to reconstruct the basket (or whatever it’s called) so that it actually will sit flush with a wedding band.
