I am looking for ideas what band to get to go with this e-ring? I was thinking a wishbone channel set semi-eternity, but we are most likely will be ordering online so I will not be able to see how well they go together.Would a straight semi eternity look odd because the two rings will not be flush together because of e-ring’s setting?(the e-ring originally had a higher setting but we had it changed because I was paranoid about hooking it in my clothes, etc so it is now low set.)
Do you ladies choose the band to go with your e-ring r do you actually focus on it matching the OH’s band?
ETA Pictures of examples would be greatly appreciated!!!

I would get a straight channel set band. I usually don’t like gaps but I prefer straight over contoured bands and lots of ladies have gaps between their e-ring and wedding band.
I am getting a wedding band but I plan on wearing it on my right hand as my e-ring setting is pretty detailed and I don’t want to take away from it. I am not matching FI’s band at all.

Wedding band shopping is hard! I’m still struggling on mine. Do you have a preference over plain or diamond bands? Do you dislike a gap? I could see a straight across eternity band making a great set if the gap doesn’t bother you. You could do a plain yellow gold band to really set off your ering. I’m a bit more traditional and I really really want to have a plain band which isn’t the norm anymore.

- Wedding: A very pretty church.
I would go plain yellow gold, same diameter. Simple and classic.

AnnaVictoria: I’m not sure how high your setting is but I went and tried on some bands this weekend. With my ring I discovered that I really like it to but right up to my band and to achieve that best square edge bands work best with my ring. Hope this helps to give you a bit more of an idea
I love this next band but it’s sterling silver and i have no idea how that’d hold up with my palladium engagment ring.
p.s. sorry these are so big!

AnnaVictoria: I think, if you want a band with some bling to it, a straight channel-set band would be really pretty. I think a prong-set band would look nice, too, but a channel-set would kind of give your whole wedding set balance and symmetry.
A plain band (yellow gold or even a different metal, if you like to mix) would also look gorgeous with it. I recently bought a plain domed rose gold band (2.5 mm), intending to stack it with my diamond wedding band and “anniversary” ERing. But I’ve been wearing just the anniversary ring and the plain band for the last several days and just loving the way they look together.
This isn’t the best picture, but it might at least give you an idea of what a plain band can look like next to a setting that has several stones on it. (hope that makes sense … >.O)
Here’s another picture of my ring with the diamond band:
Overall, I whole-heartedly agree with Strawberryshmoo. Wedding band shopping is hard work!

Lalavla: I really love your ring! I was actually torn between a blue stone and white! I chickened out in the end! I just love how channel set looks with yr ring – likethey are part of a set…hmmm… maybe I can fine a chenel set alternatng white with blue stones…. now that’s a thought..lol
longtimemrs: Gosh it IS hard, not sure if it is because i am so indecisive…
My ring is kind of small and has small stones in it ( originally it had a high settng to give illusion of big solitaire…lol but I had it changed) so I think I would love to bling it…just wondering if the size of the stones in my rings chanel has to match the band’s or can the ban’s stones be larger..
The total on my ering is 0.5 and I wonder if 0.5 semi eternity would actually ‘outshine’the ering.. if it makes sense…
why is it so hard?

Lovely ring! Based on some assumptions of my own making of the stone sizes in your engagement ring, I would think that a .25 carat semi-eternity band would work well. You could do some research shopping with your FI one day at some of your local chain jewelers; it would give you an idea of what a band would look like before you ordered blindly.
