Would this wedding band be "too much?"

I agree with your FI…they are both gorgeous rings, but don’t go together.

I’m not sure it’ll be “too much”, but it might sit weird with your ring. I tried on blingy bands w. my halo engagement ring and it just didn’t look right and led to a massive gap. Not a cute gap like I’m getting w. my thin wedding band.

if you love them together, that is all that matters.

@FutureDrAtkins:  I can understand wanting one that doesn’t match perfectly, but I don’t think that one would go with your engagement ring. It’s just “too much” as your title says.

I like the contrast of your band! I like that you could wear it as a stand-alone. My band is also a bigger band that can be worn alone, and I love it!

(Also, that is such a great picture of your Moissy! It’s so pretty and so shiny and so colorful… I have regressed to a 5 year old over here!)

I love both those rings.  I won’t tell you how many times I’ve admired that semi-bezel ring.  I think, though, that it would be a bit much with your ring.  I think because your (gorgeous) ring is rather intricate, you’re best off keeping things simple with the band.  I really like the idea of a thin pave band.  In the end, though, you should go with what you love.  The 3mm OECs WOULD make for a thinner ring than her’s (I think hers has 4mm OEC’s), so it wouldn’t compete as much.

I think it might compete with your gorgeous ering.  My thought is to find something that compliments or enhances the ering.

I say if you love it, go for it. I had the same issue, I really wanted a detailed milgrain band to go with the ring we picked but ended up with a straight milgrain band instead because it was a bit much.

I say get what you love, but I think your ring is so beautiful and should be the star of the finger if you know what I mean. This is an awesome RHR.

I think it’s too much bling and would look more like costume jewellery. I’d go with a plain thin band, but that’s just my style.

@FutureDrAtkins: FWIW, I have a friend with a ring that looks exactly like yours and she does not wear a band. I think it looks nice without.

@FutureDrAtkins:  Very pretty, but i think it would be a bit overpowering. Agreed with pps- I’d go with thin micropave band.
