A whole year later and I’m still in love with this wedding ring which I found before my e-ring even arrived:
I think it’s the most beautiful wedding ring I’ve ever seen.
The trouble is, you can only order online (can’t try on in person) and each ring is hand made to order, so you can’t return it just because you don’t like it. If I order this ring, I have to be sure about it.
I bought a silver band which was the closest thing I could find to this ring for a reasonable price. Here it is with my e-ring:
Do you think the floral band posted above would work with my e-ring??
Or, do you think I am being silly and I should just get a plain band? I’m not in love with the plain band look in the same way, but at least I know it will look classic with my e-ring. These pics are also of a silver stacking band btw (real band will be in palladium):
I already know that I DON’T want a diamond band – I’ve tried on lots with my e-ring and it’s not working for me. It’s between plain or patterned. I do have a second option for a patterned band, but it’s a lot more expensive than the floral band and honestly I love the floral band more.
Should I go for it and rock the floral band or stay safe with the traditional classic option? Thank you bees 🙂

Honestly, if you love the floral band (and you’ve been in love with the floral band for SO LONG), you should go for it. I’m personally really into individual pieces of jewellery, as in pieces that work by themselves and are interesting to look at, so take my comment with a grain of salt. Your e-ring, and the floral wedding band, are both gorgeous.
If you didn’t like the look, could you use the floral band as a RHR?

I love that ring! It’s one of the most gorgeous wedding rings I’ve ever seen.
That said, I’m not sure it would compliment your engagement ring, to me it almost looks like it would compete with it for attention. I never thought I’d find myself saying this as I love lots of detail but I think a plain band is a better choice to go with your 3-stone engagement ring.
A plain white gold band is usually very reasonably priced though so maybe you can still get both without completely blowing your budget? You could wear the floral ring on its own when you wanted to leave your e-ring at home and wear your plain band together with your engagement ring.

@MsMeow: Thanks both for your comments! I think you have both picked up on different thoughts in my mind – on the one hand, I like the fact that the floral band and my e-ring have different personalities and would stand out from each other. On the other hand, I really don’t want to spoil my e-ring with a look that’s too much! And I also like the cohesiveness of my e-ring with the plain band – so contradictory, I know. 🙁 I just keep going round in circles on this one.
I don’t ever really take my e-ring off because I chose it especially to be low-set and practical, so I can’t imagine I’d just wear the band very often.
I also like the plain band more than I did before now that I’m looking at my post again – this is the first time I’ve put all the photos together and the plain band does look lovely too. Sigh. I just don’t know! Thanks for your input.

Go for it! I love it too and I have a feeling you’ll be thinking about it if you don’t 😛

I’d get it if you really love it. I think it will look fine with your engagement ring, but if you end up not liking them together, you can always make it a right hand ring.

I looove the floral ring – super super pretty and dainty! My only question is – what’s it made of? It looks kind of tarnished but that could just be the lighting of the photo! If it is made of silver or something else that tarnishes, then I think you should get it as a RHR and order a different wedding band that won’t tarnish – or else you’ll be constantly cleaning it and I’m sure it will bother you! But if that’s not an issue then go for it; i would totally spring for a ring like that, it’s so dainty and the floral design is gorgeous!

@Mrs. Wallaby: Thanks for your comments! Whatever ring I get will be made of palladium 950 to match my engagement ring.

@Audrey2: ohhh ok gotcha 🙂 I love palladium, both my rings are made of it!

I love this ring too! I’ve been on the hunt for one just like it. Do you have a link for it?

@Audrey2: I would go for it! I think it’s subtle enough to work nicely. In your pics, I much prefer the patterned band over the plain band. I think it will look great!

I like the floral band, however, I’m more concerned about the custom nature with it being purchased online. it dies look good with your ering though.

@Audrey2: get the floral band. I think its really pretty and unique!

That ring is insanely beautiful! Go for it!!! It is understated enough that it will work just fine with your ering!!!

@lavenderstone: Sure, here it is: http://rustwedding.bigcartel.com/product/palladium-2mm-floral-carved They are based in London and Tokyo but they ship internationally. They can also make all of their designs in different metals if you don’t want palladium.
@Heidibrooke: Thanks for your input, that’s good to know!
@ButterflyBride5: I agree. In fact I initially decided not to get it for this reason. The reason I’m coming back to it is that after a year of searching I still haven’t found anything like it in palladium. The only other patterned band that I like is from etsy and it would still be a custom order. So I’m more tempted to take the risk than I was when I first got engaged. I would have a statutory right to return it if it was of poor quality, but I actually think it’s fair enough that you can’t send it back just because. It’s a small company and each ring is hand made, they have to pay for that somehow. They have a facebook page which only has positive comments, and I found a bee who gave me a good review. It does make the decision so much more difficult though!
@Daizy914: Thanks 🙂
