Hello fellow Bees! I have a wedding ring dilemma. My fiance and I found a victorian engagement ring that is very unique. We both fell in love with it and bought it immediately! Here is is:
I began looking for a ring to stack with it, and modern rings just didn’t fit the same look at all so I decided to go for another ring from the same era. I just received a five rose cut diamond victorian band in the mail today, which is pretty much my dream wedding band…
The only trouble is, when I stack them together, I’m not sure they look good!
What do you guys think? Am I being paranoid about stacking rings, or do they look better separate. I’ve heard of women who wear their engagement ring on one hand and their wedding band on another, is that a better option? I only have three days to decide whether or not to keep the wedding band, but I hate to send it back because I’m so in love with it. Any input would be greatly appreciated!
Also, I looove antique rings and bands, so put yours up as examples or just to show off 😉
I can’t wait to see what you guys think!

@im_with_crazy: wow, what beautiful rings you lucky girl!! Your instinct is right though, they don’t really go together when you stack them. I would wear them on separate hands and maybe get a plain gold band to wear with your e-ring whenever you feel like stacking.

I think when you’re actually wearing them, and your wedding band spends all day spinning around, that they will look great together!

Maybe u can have a band custom made.

Stacked together the rings are thicker than my personal taste, but I think if you love the band then you should keep it! You can always wear them on different hands.

@im_with_crazy: Both are so pretty! I would separate them and wear both!!

I agree that the rings don’t go together when worn on the same finger. If I were you, I’d wear the engagement ring most of the time, and wear your wedding ring at times where you’d be uncomfortable with your e-ring. You could certainly do it the other way around, too. 🙂

I’d definitely seperate them.
Here’s my antique ring from my grannie

@im_with_crazy: I would wear them seperately or return the wband if that’s an option.

That vintage ring is beautiful!!! I think its really cool that you had a ring handed down to you
After listening to your wonderful opinions, I think I’m leaning towards “too thick to stack together”. Since I ordered the wband online with nothing to go off of but a picture, I guess I imagined it being skinnier. I also thought about having a custom ring made, but the antique wedding band was actually the cheaper option, even with five diamonds. Go figure!

I would get a plain gold band that’s thin to go next to it. I have an antique ring that a w-band doesn’t sit flat against but the styles are similar.

Those are beautiful!
If I were you, I would get a 1.5 or 2mm plain gold band for my wedding ring and then wear the 5 stone ring as a RHR! That band is just too pretty to send back!!
