So this is my dream wedding band, I love this engraving pattern.
However I’m afraid it will clash with the engraving on my engagement ring
So Bees, what do you think? Could they go together or should I keep looking? Does anyone have a suggestion that they think would work better?

Do you plan on wearing them together? If so, then yes, to my eye they clash.
Have you looked in to rope bands? Or a band with the rope design your ring has?

@MrsCassie: I’ve seen the rope bands like the first one you posted and I am not a fan.
I have not been able to find a ring that is similar enough to my ring’s rope design that the difference wouldn’t bug me.

@Eckle: IMO, they do not go together. But because you love it so much, is there any way you could buy this ring and another ring as well? I plan on getting a plain band to wear alone when I travel, etc. That ring truly is beautiful and if you think you would regret not getting it then you should buy it! I would probably go to a local jeweler and see if they could replicate the design on your ering of you wanted one that matched exactly. Good luck searching for your ring!

I think it’s a little bit clashing due to the different engraving. It feels overkill if they’re next to each other. You can still have your cake and eat it, too. What about buying a super thin 2mm plain spacer band like this: https://www.etsy.com/listing/163963335/14-k-solid-gold-traditional-2-mm-band-or?ref=sr_gallery_40&ga_search_query=2mm+band&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=US&ga_search_type=all
I feel like having something plain between the two will break up the “clashiness” and make it work.

I would prob not wear them together either. They see like they would take away from each other, not add to the visual interest.

@MrsCassie: I like the second one!!!
Go play on Gemvara! They have loads of styles and if nothin else you can enjoy eye candy and hone your tastes.

@madelise: That is an idea, I’ll have to discuss it with FI and see what he thinks
@daffodil89: I’m glad you think it’s beautiful 🙂

@Eckle: Try it on together. See it for yourself and let your FI see it together. I *think* it might work. Then you both can decide if you like it or not. Don’t make the decision til you try it. If that engraved band is only purchasable online, go head to a regular mall jeweler and try on anything else with a lot of patterns + one plain thin band. It just gives you a good idea.
Do you ever plan on wearing JUST your WB? I routinely wear just a band (an eternity) as an alternative due to my environment, like when I go to dangerous areas or when I don’t feel like stealing attention away from another newly engaged person. I’d hate for you to not get your dream band because it doesn’t match your e-ring. Cus you might just wear it alone a lot.

Each ring is so nice on its own. Do you have to wear them together? Try it out and see how they look. I can’t say for sure if they would go well or not.

Gorgeous band ! But with the filigree & milgrain it would clash.

@Eckle: i love the band but i think the rings would compete with each other. have you considered wearing them one on your right hand.
