Does this look weird? Elaborate band and plain ering

I love looks like this!  Adds some much more interest to a plain solitaire.

A detailed engagement ring with a plain band or a simple engagment ring with a detailed or fancy band are by far my favourite combos. Then both rings really sing their own song. It shows a bit of character and style.

I think your set looks marvellous.

I actually prefer when one is elaborate and the other one plain, because when they are both elaborate they compete with each other rather than letting each one to shine in their own way.

For me the issue with this particular set is more in the proportion of the widths of the two bands and based on that picture they also appear to be different types or karats of gold, which adding milgrain to the engagement ring won’t solve. That’s not to say they look bad together, they just don’t look as cohesive as they could due to the proportions ( I think the wedding band could be just a bit narrower or the engagement ring either a hair wider or perhaps just without the tapering). I also can’t tell if my observations about the gold is true or just the lighting and shading in that photo.

Love this! My e-ring looks similar to yours and I have been thinking about pairing it with a milgrain band like this one. I like the contrast of a plain band with something a bit more ornate.

orangegreen :  I personally like thicker bands as well (and milgrain), but for my sense of aesthetics if you’re going to have two different widths, the thicker of the two should be no more than double the thinner.  And it may be that proportion at the widest part of your engagement ring (not sure) but that gets thrown off visually due to the tapering for me.

I really love teh combination you have put together, OP. I really like a more detailed wedding band with a plainer ER. A plainer ER makes it possible to pair it with almost anything!

I love it! Looks great, is unique, and adds character next to your classic solitaire

Sure it is a bit of a contrast between the two, but I still can’t help but love that elaborate band though!
