I have an engagement ring that does not have a matching wedding band. So I was wondering which band you all thought goes best with my e-ring. My e-ring has a princess cut diamond flanked by 2 baguettes. My finger size is 3.75. I am trying to decide between a white gold 2mm band or a diamond band with alternating round/baguette diamonds.
Right now, I am leaning towards the plain gold band but also like the diamond band. My Fiance and parents both think they look great, so I was hoping to get the help of the hive 🙂
Sorry for the low quality phone pics!

For whatever reason, I like the plain white gold band best. No idea why because mine will be diamond. I guess I just like it better because it’s so “clean” looking with your gorgeous ring.

@AmeliaBedelia: Thank you for the compliment! That’s one of the the main reasons why I liked the gold band so much with my ring.

I always love a little more bling of a diamond band!

I think the plain gold band is beautiful, and it really allows the diamond on your e-ring to stand out. The diamond band overshadows your engagement ring, in my opinion.

Both look great, but I like the extra pop of the diamond band so I voted that. Your ering is very beautiful, I don’t think you can go wrong with either of these two choices really… good luck!

Wow, they DO both look great! I have a personal preference for the gold band with your ring because I love how it showcases your engagement diamond.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts and opinions everyone–I really appreciate them. I’m likely going to be making the final decision on my wedding band in just a little bit when I go to purchase it later today. So exciting! So if anyone else has any opinions, please feel free to share them.

I love the plain gold band! It compliments your e-ring perfectly! I think the diamond band distracts from it because of the competing sparkle.

They both would look fantastic but I’m quite drawn to the plain band. I think it makes the engagement diamond pop out and looks great!

I love the plain gold band! I’m going with that choice for my wedding band. I think it gives the ring a simple and elgant look. And it doesn’t take away from your beautiful diamond

Usually I”m a fan of diamond bands (as I have one) but for some reason the plain gold band really enhances your engagement ring and gives it a nice clean and elegant feel!

Normally I prefera bit of bling but I think your ring looks classic and beautiful without the diamonds.

I love the plain band, I just think that it is so sleek and goes so well if your e-ring. It’s probably cheaper too!

Just wanted to let you all know that I actually didn’t end up buying my wedding band this weekend (although my Fiance did!). The gold band was definitely the front-runner in my mind also (I completely agree that the gold band complements my e-ring really well), but then I tried on a princess cut diamond channel band and really liked that too. I wish I wasn’t so indecisive—it’s one of my worst traits!
So I’m going to look around some more this week just to make sure my heart is really with the gold band. Since I’m going to wear this ring for the rest of my life, I thought I should be 110% about my choice before making the big decision 🙂
I showed my Fiance this post and he thought it was awesome how many people came on to share their thoughts with me. It really is. Thanks again bees for all your opinions!
