@kellybeans14:  it’s hard to tell for sure from the photo but it looks like it may be very wide, in which case it might overwhelm your engagement ring. But, I do love mismatched bands, so if this one doesn’t work maybe find another one in rose gold.

I would go to a store and try stuff on with your e-ring. Take some pics and then post them. It’ll be much easier to see whether it will look nice if you do that. I can’t tell by looking at stock pics and your STUNNING(!) e-ring separately.

@kellybeans14:  I loveeee mixing white gold with rose gold, so I get where you are coming from. I’ve decided to get a white gold wedding band (I have a white gold engagement ring) so that down the road, if mixing metals no longer appeals to me, I won’t regret my choice. What I am going to do is get a thin rose gold spacer to sit in between my two rings so that a) they don’t get damaged, as I’m going for mismatched rings as well, and b) I still get a little bit of rose gold in my set.

Something like this (picture stolen from google images):

I’m sorry, but I personally dont think it would look good. Even not in rose gold.

I agree that band looks like it would be too thick. but I dont see why you couldnt do a rose gold band!

I have rose gold with platnium and I love the mismatched look.  I think those two rings will look awsome together.  Of course, it’s hard to tell until you can actually try them on together. You have to have really long fingers to pull off such a wide band without it making your fingers look stubby.

One thing to keep in mind is that it’s a look that is trendy, so you might not like it any more down the line. My wedding band was inexpensive so I feel like I can change it out

@kellybeans14:  your ering is beautiful and i love that band (in both colours) but imho, together they will compete with each other too much and take away the beauty that they both hold on their own.

I don’t think they’d look good at all…sorry! 

You can still get it for a RHR tho 😉

Maybe not in rose gold, but the one in white gold would look gorgeous next to your e-ring!

It would highlight how different the styles are!

And I have a SUPER wide band with an average width e-ring (my 1ct RB center is thinner than my w band!)

I think it looks lovely and unique!

I think that style band could look really pretty, but if it was maybe half the width. I love the mismatched look too and have a similar looking engagement ring. This is what I ended up getting. I like that it has a unique shape but still ‘matches’ and doesn’t over power the e ring. 🙂

I love filigree rings! But I think the one you posted is much too wide. What about something like this in either rose gold or platinum? I personally would have the wedding band in platinum but have a rose gold spacer like PP suggested. This way you can mix it up but you will not worry if you go off rose gold in the future.
