My boyfriend and I are trying to choose an engagement ring – and I’m really obsessed with this Vera Wang Love emerald cut halo split shank ring.
I’m a bit concerned about what kind of band might go well with it though. A straight one? Could it pair with a plain band without diamonds?
Does anyone have a similar ring or perhaps this exact same one?
I’d appreciate it if you could post some pics of how you’ve paired your rings with bands!

I think either a plain band or a pave band would look good. It’s a gorgeous ring you should go for it!

I also have a halo emerald cut diamond ering, but not a split shank. I thought I knew what band I wanted just by looking online, until I started trying out rings at the store. I found my wedding band design at a store here in Japan, but it was too expensive, so my husband had it custom made in the US and I had milgrain added on the sides of each baguette stone (The original design didn’t have the milgrain detailing).

Mrs.DK: I love your set so much. So classy!
To the OP – I think a plain straight band may look really nice. It will make it obvious that it is a totally separate ring. Do they make a matching band?

Mrs.DK: your set is so awesome! I love everything about it!

Mine is high enough for a band to sit flush

Mrs.DK: Your set is perfection. That is all.

SarahDes: Because I personally don’t like when there’s too much of a gap, I would look into having something similar to this (ignore the ering) made by a jeweller. That way you’d get a perfect fit.

alabamagirl: mrssloan2013: Peanut-Sue: wrkbrk: thank you! 🙂 the band actually sits flush but had to seperate them to show the band.
SarahDes: I suggest you try on rings in person. At first I thought I wanted something that looks exactly like my e-ring, until I tried this one on! And I fell in love.

SarahDes: both plain or pave will look great! Perhaps you can try to keep the width of the wedding band similar to one of the shanks in your ering to keep the look consistent!

Another option is to just move the ering to the right hand and choose a stand alone wedding band that you will wear on your left. Many women did this when wide wedding bands were more popular. There is no rule that they need to be worn together.

Thanks everyone for all the tips! I’m quickly learning a lot about rings right now.
The more I think about it, the more I think I actually kind of like the gap.
I don’t believe this particular ring has a matching band made specifically to sit flush with it.
Please do keep those photos coming! I need inspiration 🙂

Mrs.D: So pretty! And it looks REALLY similar to the one I picked. This gives me some good ideas…
