So my fiance got me an anniversary band instead of an engagement ring (he said he didn’t like the ones with just one diamond…). Picture below… But I don’t know what kind of band to get to go with it? I have tried on a lot of bands already and there are a couple I like, including some color options that help it stand out. Or would it be weird to get a single diamond and switch it out? How would that work in the ceremony??
I really love my ring and I want to find something that makes it look even better. What are everyone’s thoughts???

A thin band with colored gemstones would look really cool! I think a single diamond would work, but might be a little weird to have it reversed. You got an unconventional e-ring and I think you should go with it and get something a little different!

I think it works well by itself. You don’t need to have separate wedding band for it. Unless you really want a set. In which case you could pick and e-ring for your wedding band 😉

If you have the fingers for it (I wish I did!!), I absolutely LOVE stacked bands. I very much considered having multiple thin bands on different color and metal and stacking them. Of course, unfortunately, I have the world’s shortest fingers. Seriously, it’s true.
If you go to this link, you can actually drag and stack various anniversary (or as Tiffany’s calls it, Celebration) rings. And stackable rings are so in right now that you could find bands like those anywhere, but it gives you an idea of what does and does not go together.

I think you should do makes you happiest. I got an anniversary band as an e-ring and a gorgeous solitaire as a wedding ring. It was a nice surprise! I know wear the anniversary band as a RHR and as my sole ring when we travel abroad. I love being able to switch it up. I also agree that with the beauty you have, you don’t need another ring unless you want one. During your ceremony, you could use your current ring (most of the time the bride wears her e-ring on her right hand during the ceremony and switches it over but everyone is going to be so focused on how gorgeous you look, they are not going to be looking for it)!

@MrsT2009: Thank you for your reply! It’s good to know I am not the only one! I really think I want to do the solitare ring to match the e-ring. I can always keep the a-band on my left and make the solitare ring the band for the ceremony but your right no-one will be paying much attention to that so it is just a technicality.
Question though.. what is a RHR?

Why not get a more traditional style engagement ring and have it be your wedding band instead? Thn you still get both, just theyre meanings are reversed….
