    @Hcrab81:  I’ve seen similar rings on Blue Nile and Tiffany’s website, are either of those from there?

    I like the second one better… the first one looks like the miligrain might not match (it doesn’t look like the e-ring has miligrain).

    Would a straight band work? Just curious if you’ve tried one… I think it would look lovely.

    Go for a straight wedding band.  I bought my wife a twisted rope shank engagement ring and we picked out a straight wedding band.  They really go great together.  Plus, the wedding band has the possibility of grinding against the metal/diamond in the e-ring.  Be very careful with that.  Good luck.

    I personally like option 2 the most, but I typically prefer thinner bands.  With your engagement ring, though, I think a thinner band (whether twisted or straight) would work best anyway.  I feel like it might look a little too busy if both bands are a little thicker (especially since you have such thin fingers).  

    I hope this helps!

    I also have a twisted band ering. Mine is tacori couture 0374. Personally, i do not like the look of a straight band with my twisted band. It looks like you got an ering and couldn’t find a band to fit so you just threw something on there. It just looks tacky, in my opinion, so I’m with you in trying to find another option.  I tried on multiple twisted bands and straight bands and I didnt fall in love with anything. FI and I decided to have mine custom made. It’s actually cheaper than the straight tacori band so we are happy. I haven’t had it made yet but we will in the spring time. Maybe you could look into the custom option? My jeweler is going to make me a few options & will even email me 3D images of the custom wedding band with my ering so I can see the complete package. Good luck!

    @Hcrab81:  i love your infinity ering band.  i like the 2nd twist band more b/c it matches your ering band better.

    what about one of these bands?
