Ok here’s the problem…I LOVE this set! I don’t see that it blends in. It is awash in sparkle, but your center stone really pops.

I agree with PP, that wedding band is a perfect match to your ring. It makes they whole thing look complete. It doesn’t take away from the center stone at all.

I actually like the matching set too. I think sometimes it’s so hard to adjust to seeing your ring with another band. When I first got married I hated the way my ring looked with my band. but after a few months I loved it. And when I was pregnant and my hands were so swollen I couldn’t wear both rings so I just wore my engagment ring (because my wedding band was notched and not able to be worn alone) and I thought my engagement ring looked so odd all alone. so anyway I think sometimes it just takes a little adjustment.

LadyH:  I think the set is gorgeous and looks beautiful together. I also agree with PPs that your center stone looks amazing with this combo. But, the most important thing is what YOU think.

PPs who mentioned that it might be your ring looking odd to you when paired with another ring after being used to seeing it on its own have a great point. It can be hard to get used to a new look on your hand. If you think this might be the case, maybe you could wear your WB and ERing together whenever you are at home (as long as your FI doesn’t mind!). That way, you can get used to seeing them together and maybe it will help you figure out if it’s just seeing two rings together that makes it feel off, or if the matching wedding band really isn’t the one for you. No matter how much I or anyone else loves the set, it’s not “the one” if it doesn’t make you happy each time you look at it.

Another option to think about is getting a very thin, solid white gold or platinum (whatever metal your ring is made of — or even rose or yellow gold, if you want a contrast) band to put between the two rings as a spacer. If you got a very thin (around 1.5mm or less) one, your set could still have a dainty feel to it. But this might be enough to let you see the two rings as separate, as opposed to feeling like one ring with a double band/shank.

EDIT TO ADD: LOVE your nail polish in the top pic. Such a pretty color!

My ring has trio micropave and I HATED the look of a all diamond band next to it. It just was too much. I love my wedding band and I plan to stack another plain band with it 🙂

LadyH:  I think it’s pretty normal to go back and forth on a decision. After all, it’s an important decision — and something that is very subjective and personal, too. Finding just the right wedding band can be hard. I did the same thing when my husband gave me my anniversary ring last year. I never had a wedding band with my ERing — just wore a metal wedding band on its own. So when I started thinking about what type of band to put with this new ring in order to make a “set”, I felt pretty overwhelmed with all the choices. At first, I didn’t think anything looked good with the ring at all, which was disappointing and upsetting. Eventually, I found several things that I really like with it. Right now, I kind of switch them up as the mood strikes me. But I don’t think I’ve found my ring’s “perfect match” yet.

I am pretty sure that I have read about other bees getting thin spacer bands at different chain stores. But there are lots of online places where you can order them, too. I have a couple of rose gold and white gold “twist” bands that I use as spacers sometimes. I got them from Etsy.

LadyH:  thank you! And yes it’s not that bling is bad, but I think with the white gold, its just too much of the same color scheme. You’ll find the right band! Just try a LOT of stuff on. I think something a little different than what your band is would look great. Either some color or something with a different shape to show off your e-ring 🙂 Keep us updated!
