I posted recently about choosing a ring and now I’d like to ask what would look nice next to the diamond wedding band I selected (see photo).
I got the same exact ring as in this photo except with 7 slightly smaller stones rather than 5 larger ones. Ring is half eternity style with total 1.5ct weight with curved and set in profile and edges. Height is ~2 mm).
Instead of wearing a typical solitaire engagement ring, I would like to get another band with stones that would stack nicely and make the stones of this wedding ring “pop.” I don’t know if I should try to match the size and shape of the stones with a ring of a different color or if I should get a band with a contrasting design. I just fell in love with this band but now I’m thinking it needs something else next to it.
I tend to like sapphire and pink sapphire and platinum settings but will consider other styles. Please post pics if you can. Thanks, you guys are awesome!

Am I right in that you’re trying to choose an engagement ring to match your wedding band?
If so, there are lots of other styles besides solitares.
You can get a 3 stone ring for example with the center stone being a pink sapphire and the side stones being diamonds.
I have to come back to post pics.

@YSQueen: Yes, either that or just another band-type ring (probably with stones) to make a stack ring set. I’m not so into the traditional e-ring and band set, which is why I picked this band. Only thing is that the look with this one is a little on the simple side, I’m realizing…I was pretty confused about the whole e-ring and band concept so now I’m realizing my “e-ring” looks quite a bit different than everyone else’s.
Another option is that I could change my mind again(!) and upgrade to the other, blingier 3 row diamond ring that I was looking at last time. (The store allows upgrades at any time.) What’s stopping me:
- I’m really embarassed to change my mind again (I went back to the store several times)
- that ring looks a bit more like a cocktail ring
- it’s less comfy (probably wouldn’t sleep with it on like I do with this one)
- it’s less pretty up close
- I do love the ring I have, it’s just that it is so very simple and practical…
PS hope I’m not being annoying with my total inability to make up my mind about this!
