    I have a knife edge, and was surprised to find that a flat wedding band looked the best with it.

    You can find plenty of 14k for under three hundred! Check out James Allen! I was looking at platinum bands there and the one I like is only 410!

    MsW-to-MrsM:  I would still try on a flat plain band. I was trying to find something to match my knife edge and nothing would lay nicely against my solitaire. I just tried one on by chance and wouldn’t have thought a mismatched look woul work together.

    I am so glad you posted this because my ring is identical to yours and I too need to find a band ASAP. I went and looked in person and a 2mm half round/dome looked best. I think I took pics, I am going to check my phone and post if I did.

    What are the specs of your ring ??that plays in on how wide you should go with your wedding band. Also i have noticed my 10k band which is my orginal wedding band doesn’t look same color wise to my 14k Ering(if that makes any since). Also in  The long run the two different  golds will wear on the other causing  damage. My advice go with a 14k Band and if your ering is 2.5 mm you can do a 3mm band no problem if your stone is under a half carat it will make it look smaller but your stone looks bout .70 or more so you should be ok with the 3mm band!!!hope i helped you out good luck

    I have a soft knife-edge 2mm 18k yellow gold diamond ring (narrowed down to 1.9 next to the diamond) paired with a 1.9 mm D-profile wedding band, also18k yellow gold.

    Ring size 5.5.

    The knife edge looks thinner than the wedding band from a distance.

    Hi there. If you’re e-ring is 14K gold then your wedding band should also be 14K gold. If you get 10K gold weddng band it is a harder metal (less gold concentration) and it will scratch your 14K gold e-ring because your e-ring is the softer metal. I have a 14K white gold ering and I wanted a tungsten carbide wedding band but I couldn’t get it because the tungsten would scratch the gold. P.S. I think the 3mm band would be the best match. My ring size is 7.5 and both ering and wedding band is 3mm each and I think the thickness looks great. Good luck, hope you find what you’re looking for. 🙂

    I think it depends on your preference. If you want your wedding band to be as or more noticeable than your ER band, then go with the 3 mm. Personally, I prefer to go slightly thinner with the wedding band if it isn’t going to match exactly. 

    My ER has a 2.5 mm band and my WB is closer to 1.5 mm.
