I have a uniquely shaped setting for my engagement ring and never really felt like I wanted to match it, however, I do want a wedding band that looks nice paired with it. When my grandmother died I inherited an eternity band of hers. It doesn’t really fit my finger and would need to be resized, which might not even be possible because it is a full eternity band so may even have to be remade completely. I don’t know if this is even an avenue worth pursuing I’m not sure the eternity band works with my e-ring. I would love to use an heirloom of hers just because of the significance, but I don’t know how I feel about completely reworking her ring. If not this eternity band what kind of a band do you think would work well with my ring? What would you do with my grandmothers ring that doesn’t fit?

While they don’t match, I don’t think they look bad together at all. If you can’t get it resized, maybe you can have a meaningful RHR.

@MsLabRat: I think they go well together. Could you take out some of the diamonds and make a half-eternity band in your size?

I think they look good together! And I’m not usually a huge fan of blingy mismatched looks.
My wedding band was my grandmother’s and I love having that family history on my hand.

I LOVE them! It is unique enough that it doesn’t look like everything else out there but also they are both clasic enough that it doesn’t look goofy or outlandish. Good choice!

I’m biased cause I’m all about the mismatched looks lol but I think it looks great! I totally love the idea of having your grandmother’s band. If they can’t resize it I would use the stones and get the metal melted down and used in a rework so its still a part of the band.

@MsLabRat: I think they look nice together but they look very uncomfortable and bulky to wear.
