    I would go with the thinner band. I also feel it’s too wide. Maybe wear your mother’s band as a right hand ring instead 🙂

    I love the idea that you are going to wear your mothers wedding band, but I think MidnightSun is right. Perhaps it would be better to wear it on your right hand. It still keeps her close and honors her, but you have a band on your left hand that is more suitable with your e-ring.

    Think of the wedding band that matches your e-ring as a new foundation for your new family with you and your FH, while at the same time remembering your mother with her band on your right hand.

    Beautiful E-ring, btw! 🙂

    I think your mother’s band is a stand alone piece of jewelry.  A diamond band would be lovely but you don’t necessarily need a diamond band.  I think what is most important is that you need a thinner band, plain, milgrain or diamond.

    I like the sentiment of wearing your Mom’s ring, but I think the diamond band would look better. Or at least a thinner band.

    I like the idea of a thinner diamond or plain band. I agree with PPs that your mother’s band would make a lovely RHR.

    Can you do both?  Your mothers band would be awesome to wear alone for days you don’t want to wear diamonds!

    I love the sentiment of wearing your mom’s ring, but I really think you need a smaller band – it doesn’t even need to be diamond, just something thinner than your mom’s ring.

    I agree that you need a thinner band. Wearing your Mom’s ring as a RHR or when you don’t feel like wearing your e-ring/wedding band are good ways to incorporate your Mom’s ring into your daily wear.

    I love the idea of your mother’s wedding band but I would opt for a thinner one.

    i agree with most of the ladies, go for the thinner band. it will compliment your e-ring so much more! by the way, your e-ring is GORGEOUS.

    Like others already said, I think it’s a nice sentiment to wear your mother’s band, but I think it is too wide to go with your engagement ring.  I would wear your mother’s band on your other hand and get a thinner band to go with your e-ring.
