    I think your ring is beautiful. I’m not usually a fan of halos but yours is different and I really like the band. That being said, I think a band that contours to the shape of your engagement ring would be perfect.

    I would do a rose gold band so it contrasts slightly with the e ring. I personally like a gap so would pick a non contoured band. I love your ring and no not too gaudy at all πŸ™‚

    @Bliss1107:  I am having the same issue!!  I want a matching micro pave band or perhaps 2 micro pave bands to put on each side of my ring.  BUT, if the diamonds in my engagement ring setting touch the wedding band diamonds they will scratch each other.  One jeweler told me that I could solder them together but I really, really don’t want to do because there are some occasions where I would like to wear just my wedding band and not my ring (sports, coaching, running, etc).  I suppose I could use a plain gold spacer in between my ring and a micro pave wedding band…..

    But, today I saw a pretty band (not micro pave) with little princess cut diamonds.  Since you (and I) have radiants, that might look nice too.  I think you should go to a few places and try a bunch on and see what you like.  I also suppose it would depend on how much (or little) bling you are looking for….it seems like you might be looking for less…..

    I would totally wear a wedding band, though.  You could probably get one custom made to hug/outline the setting; that would be really pretty.

    Your ring is gorgeous, I just love radiants!  So different and rare!  Congrats!

    @Bliss1107:  I think a nice very thin plain band would look lovely with your ring. You’ve already got enough bling Wink IMO

    I think the size is proportionate to your finger. It’s very blingy though — I mean that in a good way! — and I think if you added a band it might start to look like too much. That is only my opinion though, and others might think differently, so take my .02 cents for what it’s worth.

    I am tossing this same question around in my mind. I have a blingy e-ring and we just ordered a one carat eternity band to go with it. I don’t **think** it is going to be too blingy but some people might think it is…

    Also too, the style of your e-ring is such that to me, it looks like you already have a band built in. So IMO you don’t need one. But, if you want one, by all means go for it! The bottom line is that you’re happy and you love it every time you look at it.


    If you do get a band and feel it’s too much to wear them together, just wear the e-ring on your right hand sometimes. That is what I might do sometimes.

    Good luck and congratulations!

    @Bliss1107:  No problem πŸ™‚ You should totally go try it on again, take a picture and post it here! I’d love to see it.

    It really depends on your style and what you would like for it to look like. I would get a straight band but I don’t like bands to match too much and I don’t mind if there is a gap between the band and the e ring. Its all about what you like!

    I think your fingers are too dainty for the matching band! πŸ™‚ It would look really chunky on a small finger, IMO. I would either do no band, or do a more simple band..maybe just a very slim, straight one or as some other’s have suggested something a little more mismatched.

    My finger is a 6.5 and I STILL choose to go with a more simple, straight across band for the same reason. It just breaks it up a bit so it doesn’t look like this huge clunky thing on your finger.

    I would do no band. I love me some bling, but remember you will be wearing this all the time. For me, there is a line to what is comfortable and blingy vs just too much. 

    I commented on your other thread, but I LOVE your ring!
