After much debating, I settled on my wedding band… or I think I did… Let me say that I wanted a blingy wedding band… something that looked substantial on its own (I often won’t be able to wear my e-ring). It’s a full eternity and I absolutely love it on its own. However, I’m worried that it competes too much with e-ring when they’re together. What I espcially love about my e-ring is the dainty band and this wedding band obscures it. At the same time, I’m not sure how I’d encorporate a blingy band without obscuring the e-ring’s band anyways… I tried on eternity bands with only 1 row of diamonds and they were “too” dainty to be worn alone (for my tastes). Since I won’t be wearing my e-ring all that often, it’s less of an issue, but for formal events, I want them to match! The only other idea I had was to buy a separate wedding band to wear with my e-ring. For financial reasons, I really don’t want to do this right now. I should add, I’ll be wearing my e-ring and wedding band together for the next 2 years. After that though, I’ll likely have to switch to wearing the wedding band only while at work. For obvious reasons, I want my wedding band and e-ring to match for the next two years!
Let me know what you think!

I think it looks great! Yes, it doesnt match on the bottom, but who is going to see the bottom. I say YES

I love the band, but not so much with the ring, the different widths is throwing me off. But both rings alone are beautiful so I would do it especially with your two year plan for them

I think they look perfect together.

Have you considered getting TWO, identical wedding bands with only one row of diamonds each? You could wear one on each side of your e-ring now and have them soldered together in two years when you will begin wearing only the band(s) most of the time.

@vanasme: They look absolutely amazing together!! You have beautiful hands. I think the two rings are a match made in heaven. Different, edgy and modern, but still with a vintage feel. I love!!!!!

@vanasme: I think they look good together, but if the band was slightly more narrow so it didn’t peek past the edge of the e-ring it would look better. That is a difficult e-ring to pair with regardless, unless you do two bands with one on each side to create a balance. @Brielle: ‘s idea sounds good, or, really you could just wear the e-ring on your right hand or 1st finger if it fits.

I think they match – absolutely. I wouldn’t hesitate to wear a band of that width with your e-ring. I do not think it overpowers your engagement ring.
I personally love the look and the added bling is a bonus. A few people have suggested wearing it on the other hand. I understand that, but for me? I love the look of two rings. It means “married” to me.
Either/or – you have great taste!

I think they look fine, but they look unbalanced to me since the band is a lot wider than the band on the e-ring. I’m a little crazy about balance and things looking equal so that would bug me, but if you’re cool with it, the band looks good with the e-ring!

i think they go together, but i’d prefer to get a wedding band that was slightly narrower so that it matched the width of the e-ring more

They look perfect together! I think all the metal in the halo really helps. It stops the center stone from being overpowered by the thick band.
