Looking for some positive stories as I wait (im)patiently for my band to be made. I’m praying it will look nice with my engagement ring.
Please tell me your success stories and show me your gorgeous sets!

@linnylou_88: me! Haha. I worried that I needed to get a delicate band with my solitaire and I did not lol. You’ve seen my set a million times but here it is again haha. Your two rings will look great together so don’t worry!!

Mine are pretty mismatched. Different colors, different widths, different finishes on the metals. I thought I might have to wear them on different hands. But I actually really like how they look together.

Maybe I am misunderstanding, but if you are having the band made, wasn’t it made with your ER in mind? So isn’t it guaranteed to match or go with it?
My ER is cathedral set, so any plain band at all will go with it, and any diamond band will go with it with a 1 or 1.5 mm spacer.

Some think mine don’t go together and it looks to busy but I loved both rings equally and I really don’t think they look bad together at all.

@echomomm: My band is being custom made because I fell in love with the design. It’s pretty normal in my aicisk circle to only wear your band so originally I didn’t mind too much if they didn’t look good together. Now I’ve fallen in love with the idea of wearing both rings sometimes. So I just hope they will look nice together as well as alone 🙂

@wrkbrk: I always love seeing your rings. Your heart bezel has made me fall in love with bezels! I’m probably over thinking whether the rings will look nice together. I will probably fixate on it until I have both rings then I will fixate on something else! I don’t plan to upgrade (and I think it would hurt FIs feelings) so I feel a lot of pressure to get it right!

@linnylou_88: I felt the same and had a lr
lot if doubts But honestly once it’s yours you won’t ever want to change it. Plus your band is gorgeous!!

@linnylou_88: Finding my wedding ring was tricky business. I have a big, oval halo e-ring. I found something that actually fit around it, just before I was about to spend a lot of money on a custom ring. What I found was significant less money than a custom ring, but I think its very pretty. It doesn’t match perfectly, but I think they go together nicely. I like them together, that’s all that matters. Plus I’m pretty sure no one else will have anything like it.

Both my rings were custom made, so I could have chosen to get a matching set. I purposely chose non- matching designs so each ring would be unique to the event it was made for….I’m so very happy the way they turned out.

@linnylou_88: I worried about that non-stop. Originally I wanted a much bigger band but finally accepted that the band I had in mind, did not fit with my e-ring. So we opted for something thin and small.

@linnylou_88: yes, because they are all different styles! But I am in love with my rings and wouldn’t change a single thiNg.

@JessMorgan777: I think your set is one of the prettiest I have seen. The rings are very different from each other, but Gee! The two of them look good together.

@linnylou_88: I honestly think your rings are going to look great!
I have this ring from Berricle which is similar to your band – depending on how long it will take for your band to arrive, maybe you could order it to see the style with your e-ring? http://www.berricle.com/sterling-silver-925-cz-eternity-band-wedding-ring-r029.htm
I didn’t order my band for ages because I was worried it wouldn’t go with my e-ring. I found wearing a silver ring that was similar was really useful for testing out the style. I also found a picture of the band with a three stone e-ring and that sealed the deal!

@Audrey2: I wish I had seen that Berricle ring earlier! I’m picking up my band on 22nd Feb. I think if everyone else IRL was on board I’d feel a lot more confident, but they all said I shoukd have got a plain band. I’ve been searching online for a thin (1.8mm) palladium band just in case. I don’t know if you saw my other thread but I’m thinking of adding milgrain to my ERing to help the two rings tie together. A Bee kindly photoshopped it for me. Seeing that makes me feel a little less anxious! I’ll try to post a pic.
As for your band, it’s just perfect with your ERing. They work together but still look like two distinct rings (I think that sometimes a matching band just makes the ERing shank look wider instead if looking like two rings). I love how delicate it looks. You made the right choice!
