Not a fan of the yellow gold, but I think its really pretty otherwise! I think you need something blingy and substantial if you want it to stand alone.

checkcheck:  Can you post a pic of your ering? I think the rings should complement each other even if on opposite hands 🙂

checkcheck:  unless the side or profile view is crazy, it seems like you should be able to find something out in the world to work with your ering. Is it possible you just want a gigantic wedding band (which would be totally fine!) and this is the way it would make the most sense to you or fi? Either way, I do think that your ering and the 5 stone ring you are considering would complement each other nicely!

I have a white gold 5 stone wedding band that I often wear alone. Each stone is 4.5mm and I am also a size 4.5 finger – I love it! It’s not a trellis or shared-prong setting like you are looking into but very similar.

checkcheck:  I hear ya. What’s the diameter or ct weigt of your solitaire? Also, the height of each ring matters more than you might think. Can you also post a pic of your ering from the side?

checkcheck:  have you checked overstock ? They have great quality rings like the five stone for way less. They offer coupons too.

checkcheck:  Very pretty! It definitiely seems like you should be able to pair a wedding band right next to it. I reccommend continuing to go into stores and try things on. Obvioulsy it depends on how much patience you have as well as your access to jewelry shopping. If you are leaning toward the 5 stone, keep shopping for that, too. I do not think that a 5 stone ring, where each stone is .25 would be over the top, though it definitely would make a statement! But really, see if you can find a ring with equivalent carat weight or dimensions that you can try on your hand. I have bought “test” rings from Berricle. Same goes for a plain band, too. See how things look on you, with your ering on your left hand, and also solo.

I usually like to wear my rings solo too, including my new ering. I have been experimenting with wearing a thin yellow gold band with it just to warm up the platinum a bit but looks wise and comfort wise, I like it on its own as with most of my rings. It took me some expensive trial and error to figure out multiple rings or the whole stacking trend does not work for me! Sure, bands can work with my rings, but I like the look on its own, so don’t feel like you HAVE to wear a band and ering on one finger. I know plenty of people who do what you do and move one ring over to the right hand, and bonus, now you have a RHR 😉

Plain bands are great and classic, but if you want a bit more bling, a five stone (or even a seven stone) is a great idea. I never really was drawn to five stones but turns out I really like them – I just did not actually know it until I took this one on a trade on diamondbistro. It’s a two-tone bezeled graduated five stone, approx. 1.25tcw. I wear it mostly as a RHR but have also been using it as an alternate on my left as it is so easy to wear and good for when I am doing something more active or something. I was thinking of doing a reset to a trellis style but I am not sure I will as the bezels make it an easy style to wear. It looks much prettier in real life than in photos, like a band of bling across the finger! I have experimented wearing it with a gold band but I like it solo too. I like it when I want something simpler than my ring, but still blingy! Couple photos to show it with a band and without, left ring finger is a size 5, right ring finger is a 5.25-5.5.

 

So, you might want to even look at a graduated five stone as well, as it works pretty well as a standalone and can be pretty flattering (I think).
