I think it looks nice! I am biased though 🙂 

My e-ring is 1.8mm and my wedding band is 4mm. Quite a difference but I absolutely love it. Give it some time!

I love this look!. I have something to PP. My e-ring band is 1.8 mm and all the bands I like to wear it with are thicker: a 5 mm, a 2.9 mm channel (pictured with a 1 mm thick dot and eye band), and a 3.5 mm. My Fi doesn’t like the thicker band look either, he doesn’t like the look of anything thicker than 2 mm. I have a 2 mm band but I really prefer the weight of the 5 mm, it feels like its going to last forever (esp. since mine looks great and is almost 150 years old).IMG_8886IMG_1362 IMG_1498

Maybe a curved setting would work better so that the engagement ring sits more snugly. Would your fiance be okay if your ring was curved to accommodate the e-ring?

If not, it still looks great! 

ETA: Just curious, why is it so important to your fiance that the bands are the same?

Yes, I went for a 3mm full eternity band and my ering is tapered. I forgot the measurements but I know it’s smaller than 3. I do not like the look of the trendy paper thin wedding bands.

llamajams :  what about if you just had the prongs lifted so they sit snug? Probably wouldn’t be to expensive and I think would look better !

llamajams :  Your set is stunning! 

I love the look of thicker wedding bands but I have super small fingers. I can only fit my engagement ring and a 1mm band 🙁

I went with a thicker band as well. I like the juxtaposition and the added weight. I also like that I can wear my band by itself and still feel like it’s substantial.

My wedding band is much thicker than the engagement ring, but I had it cut to fit snugly around the stones. I wasn’t sure about the look at first, but now I’m used to it, I love it!

kayjee :  Love your set! Would you mind giving the stats on your wedding band (ct, thickness, height) if you know them? We’re e-ring twins and I was thinking I wanted a larger band like yours!
