    The floral band would look crazy with your ring. I like the band you posted below it because it looks the segmented sections of a dragonfly’s…butt? Thorax? You know what I mean.

    I’m confused… what would the flower ring potentially be standing in for? I thought you already had your dragonfly ring.

    @dewingedpixie:  Sorry, that’s just my opionion. I think they would look crazy together, i.e. clash, and I don’t see how they could both fit on your finger together. Your ring can stand on its own, and I think the floral band would be distracting. A simpler band would be better.

    Have you checked Etsy? There are lots of twig/organic shaped bands. I bet there are some that would work with yur ring.

    hmm, I see why you need one now. Sorry to hear about the complications going on.

    Unfortunately, I also think it would clash sitting next to your dragonfly ring. I would suggest a simple, solid precious metal band. The flower ring is a nice design and would be nice as a fun ring though on your other hand, where its somewhat different take on some common elements with your engagement ring would not clash due to visual distance, but also be physically close enough that their common elements can be appreciated. But maybe at a later time. Right now I feel like, how can you go wrong with a 2.5-3mm or so, high polish white gold band?

    I just checked out the thread this one is following up on, and I have to say, I love #6. It would go much better stacked with your engagement ring, IMO.

    Can I ask who makes #6? (you called it leaf vine band, the carved one with straight edges) …I REALLY like that style!
