     I think the plain would look best with your ring. The twist doesnt match to me… I would just tell your hubby that you have doubts on your band and really want the plain one. Ask for it for your birthday, Easter or first anniversary gift!!

    I think the plain band complements your ering better.

    The twist does not work well/ compliment your ring.

    I think a plain band would look nice as long as it was flush with your e-ring, as I notice the band in the picture has the e-ring overhanging it as the shank was not as thick.

    @MrsBobcat:  I had the same issue in picking out my wedding band. In my head it made sense, on my finger was another story. I just couldn’t deal with the difference in thicknesses of the two bands. I ended up having two sets, but now I think I’m gonna stack and wear my original e-ring on my right hand, anywho, OT.

    I love that twisty band, but not with your e-ring. I say get the plain band for your e-ring and wear the twisty band as a RHR.

    @MrsBobcat:  the twist doesn’t compliment your ering imho. Adding another would totally overwhelm your ering. However I don’t think the one you picked out will compliment it either as it appears wide. It’s difficult to see the details of your ering band, it appears to have tiny diamonds down the shank. I would consider a very thin diamond band myself. Or a very thin plain band.  something like this maybe 1.5mm : 1/6 CT. T.W. Diamond Wedding Band in 10K White Gold - Zales

    @MrsBobcat:  I am not into match-matchy…..I am, in fact- into miss-matchy (see below)….so I like some pretty unique combos.  unfortunately, while I think both the twist band and your engagement ring are both beautiful, together they look like you blindly picked your rings from a hat.  They don’t compliment eachother– and sort of just look messy together.  Sorry, it’s how I see it though.  There’s just too much going on.

    I do think your engagement ring would look absolutely stunning with that plain band though–!!

     

    Here’s my miss-matchy set.

    @MrsBobcat:  I think the 2mm will be fine on its own. Am not a fan of the look of a wider wedding ring next to an engagement ring though.  Have you considered just getting a separate ring to wear alone?  (bonus, extra jewelry LOL!

    @MrsBobcat:  keep it! add a flat band onto the stack if you still really want it. I am not yet married but I totally plan to have mismatching bands. I think it’s becoming more and more popular for people to have a finger full of interesting bands in different metals and designs.

    @MrsBobcat:  So just for reference– if you look at the picture I posted previously, my ering is 2mm, and my wedding band is 3mm (at the top, though it tapers down to 2 at the bottom)
