can you wear your e-ring on your right hand and your band on your left? I am probably going to do that and have noticed a lot of girls doing that lately. it looks nice!

hey Curly, I think you can find a wedding band that is ‘thin’ enough to sit under the peek-a-boo’s.

Sigh, I know you have seen my ering and bands, but what you cant see is how thin they actually are. I have this beautiful detailing on the outside of the ring like yours and I didnt want to cover it up either but as soon as I started to try on different bands I saw what ones worked better.

Have you started to look at bands yet? I say start looking at some, look at those bands that are reduculously thin and see if it covers up the peek-a-boos. If you cant find one, then you can either go sans wedding band, or maybe wear the band and your ering on your left hand like was also suggested.

I have a similar ring, with peek-a-boo diamonds, and I had honestly not even thought about this. IMO, no one ever really sees the detailing along that side or the diamond anyway.. so I’m just fine having a band that covers up one side. As long as you only have one band, you’ll still be able to see the detailing and diamond on the other side. I know that doesn’t help with the sentimentality of it, but I know that I personally want to wear both rings on the same finger. As long as they’re not soldered together, you’ll still be able to slide them apart and look at the diamond whenever you want ๐Ÿ™‚ Or as chantellamus mentioned above, maybe you’ll be able to find a band that’s thin enough!

Have you talked to your jeweler? They probably have some suggestions and examples for you.

Your ring is gorgeous  What are those blue stones?  I would suggest wearing that ring on your right hand.  I am debating about whether to do that or not.  If not, you could get a curved ring that goes around it.

I’m going to wear my engagement ring on my left hand, (since I’m already so used to it being there) and my wedding ring on my right hand.

Problem solved (in my world) ๐Ÿ˜‰

You can certainly add a band. I have at least two ideas. Your ring is in a way similar to mine….mostly in that it has the engraving on the sides.

My ring is a 1930’s and finding a band was near impossible…so we had my band custom made to match my ring and his ring custom made to match my band and ring. I don’t have a photo of his ring but  have attached my photos.

So, I could say that you might just look at a custom band and my two ideas for this are to have a band that matches your e-ring, that is they can keep the band really low so that you can see the diamonds in the band or possible even have one of those band where the e-ring slides between two bands that are mounted together in back and end up craddling the ering. Any good jeweler will be able to work with your ring.

Also, the cost on my band was around $550 for white gold, his band was $1200 (but his hands are bigger and so is his ring).

My photos certainly don’t do my ring or the process justice but what can I say….I am at working using the photo option on my mac.

My ring has diamonds on the side, as well. I really don’t want to hide them! I’ve decided to wear the e-ring on my right hand after the wedding, and just have a plain band for the left hand.

Am I the only one in the world who thinks wearing my engagement ring as my wedding ring is fine? I’m not getting an extra ring.

Your ring is beautiful. I can see why you wouldn’t want to cover up the sides.
