My e-ring is pretty thick and oddly shaped so unless I want a channel set band (which I’m not a big fan of), I’ll have to move my e-ring to my right hand and wear my wedding band on my left. If I go this route, I’ve decided that I need a wedding band with some substance so that it stands out on my hand (I’ve got chunky fingers). I’ve narrowed my choices down to the below two bands…
#1: 1/2 ct. flower 5 stone ring (matches my e-ring design)…
#2: 1/2 ct. diamond swirl ring…
Heres a picture of my e-ring, even though it doesn’t necessarilly need to match since they won’t be worn together…
ETA: Both bands are currently on sale. The flower band is about $100 more than the swirl band but they are both priced well below our initial budget, so cost isn’t really a concern with these.

I like the second one better if you’re going to separate the two rings. If you worn them together though I think the first would look nicer.

Have you thought of just not doing a band at all? If you’ll only be wearing one on your left hand anyway, it wouldn’t be so far fetched to make your e-ring the wedding ring as well. I know some people who have opted out of the band since they have a unique, less matchy e-ring and they are happy with that choice.
If not, then I’d say go with the flower ring.

@soonerpsych: I hadn’t thought about foregoing the wedding band. I don’t think I ever could. Having a wedding band is pretty important to both FI and I.

I like the first one because A) It is beautiful and B) it pretty much matches your e-ring!

I’m not fond of either of these bands and would suggest a thinner round diamond band to match the outter band of your ering. They could be worn together.

@blingbling: I don’t really like the thinner, round bands. I tried a few on about a month ago and they did nothing for me. Besides, I would prefer to have something unlike everyone elses. Every married friend/family member that I know all have virtually the same wedding band.

I like the second one better, ONLY because the first one looks more e-ring-ish (larger center stone with side stones) to me, and if it were me wearing them, I’d be concerned people would forever be asking about it, haha.

I’d go with the first one so it ties the 2 rings together even though they are on different hands…usually when people ask to see one, they will ask to see the other.

I ditto daydreamwanderer. If you have a band with a larger center, it could be confused for an e-ring. It is definitely pretty, if that doesn’t bother you. Otherwise, I’d for sure use the second one. Are these the two you are definitely choosing between, or are you still browsing?

@Goodie: I’m still browsing but these have been the only ones I found that I liked within my budget.

Why not have a band custom made? I also have an “odd” shaped e-ring, so we had a custom band made so they could be worn together. The design fee was only a couple hundred dollars and I get to wear my rings together. I’d just hate to banish an e-ring to be a RHR.

I like the fact that the first one is representative of your e-ring but I prefer the second one if it is to be worn alone.
