You’ve explained this and he still gets upset? I totally get where you are coming from and I would want the band with my ring, too. Even if it’s simple and doesn’t have diamonds.

Could you potentially get one for your one year anniversary?

Wow that’s a stunner! I would get a very simple thin band to wear with it, or switch to my right and get a diamond band for the left. He did a great job though!

I think a thin band (2mm?) would be lovely with you’re sparkler!

yeah I’d pair it with a thin plain white gold band. A diamond band might blend in too much and make it look lopsided if that makes sense. 🙂

You could even do a 1-2mm rose gold band to make it stand out from your e-ring!

@Sweet.Sugar.Rose: That’s what I was going to suggest! Love it! I bet it would look great! Something simple and meaningful like that would really compliment it.

Oooooo, sparkly.  Smile

I’ve got a sneaky suggestion.  You could tell him you love your ring, and there are days where you’re doing work or going places where you don’t want to damage it, and want a plain band so you don’t have to worry about hurting your wonderful ring.  Then you can ease into wearing them together, and he probably won’t notice.

@Sweet.Sugar.Rose:  A gold band is a nice idea!


I think it’s nice that your husband felt so strongly about picking out the ring himself but maybe you should delicately remind him that this is about you as well. You have fantasies and expectations too! Or tell him that people are always asking you “when’s the wedding” because you dont have a wedding band!
