lilsweetie:  Oh my gahhhhhd cute kittie! !!!!!!!!

I think your ring is gorgeous. I would personally shave the band down a bit and have a smaller wedding band. I haven’t really added anything new sorry! !! ๐Ÿ™‚

I like your e-ring with the think diamond band, lower right corner. It really makes your ering stand out

I generally tend to lean more towards daintier bands, but I think the band on your engagement ring looks nice. However, I think a smaller wedding band would complement it more. Your wedding band is nice, but it competes with your ering. ๐Ÿ™‚

lilsweetie: this is my Victor Canera, you asked to see. the band is 1.9. The center is 1.75. It did take 2 months for him to make, it’s hand forged so it is stronger than the usual thin band.

With wedding band^^^

lilsweetie:  I 100% understand where you are coming from. In my opinion skinny bands do make your stone look bigger because it is technically front and center. With that being said, I LOVE your set! The thick band still makes it look great, I really like the solid band next to the diamonds ๐Ÿ™‚

I have a thick wedding band because I love the look, my diamond does look a little smaller to me, but the total package with my wedding bands and setting look so great that I dont care. Hope you find a great balance!

sorry but yes i do think ur wedding band is too thick too ๐Ÿ™

 

i know bees here traditionally love to praise ANY pics, but i just wnat to offer my perspective…

 

ur hand size is relatively small, i think anything bigger than 2mm/2.5mm will overshadow ur ring AND ur hand…

i personally really prefer dainty rings…

Soooo much sparkle, I love it. What I would do though is switch that gorgeous wedding band over to a right hand ring, and then put two thinner diamond bands with the e-ring, one above and one below it for a stack. I think it would be so flattering.

I personally don’t care for super thin bands on e-rings with big ol’ rocks like yours, because every time I look at them I think “man, so easy to snap off.” That’s probably not even realistically the case, but it makes me cringe in anticipation of an accident.

I love your engagement ring, mainly because I have the exact same setting (mine is thinner though because my diamond is about a bazillion times smaller than yours!). I think your band is perfectly in proportion and your stone looks in no way small, trust me.

The wedding ring is the problem here, to my eye it just doesn’t go with your e-ring. Its far too bulky. Its gorgeous though and I would wear it on the other hand and pick a very narrow plain or diamond band as wedding band to allow your e-ring to really shine. I’m a traditionalist so I have a 2mm plain band next to my solitaire and they look lovely and classic and my little diamond can be the star of the show!

Personally, I prefer medium bands…not too thick but not so thin that you have to worry about the integrity of the ring (I read an article from a jeweler saying that he was worried about the longevity of some of today’s rings because of the daintiness that’s in style right now!). Yours is a little thicker than I would prefer but I think that you can still tell you have a giant rock. However, it’s a different story when you add the wedding band. It’s gorgeous, but it just overpowers your e-ring.

I think that the whole situation could be fixed by changing your wedding band to a RHR, as PP have suggested, and getting a medium (not super dainty, so it won’t look out of place) wedding band.
