So I love love love my engagement ring. It’s thin (2mm), white gold, with a small, low diamond (pics below!)
But I’m a little torn. Fiance prefers yellow gold wedding bands. Can I wear a yellow gold wedding band with this white gold e-ring?
Also, we want claddagh rings (last pic) for our wedding bands. Because the claddagh is too complext to have engraved on a thin band, all we’ve found is a 3.8mm band. Would this thicker band look weird with my thin, delicate looking e-ring?

what about going for half and half?

@AlysiaJ: can you post where you found those claddaghs … not to thread jack, but we’ve been looking for a simple band like those.
I think that the gold with the white gold might look off and I agree with PP that if you could go half n half it would look really nice.

I wear my on different hands and then you can do something that doesn’t go.

Does your fiance prefer a yellow gold band for himself or for you? You don’t have to have matching wedding bands. Or you could wear your e-ring on your right hand.

@HisIrishPrincess: This website has the best selection for very simple bands that I have found so far: http://www.thecladdagh.com/overview3.htm
@abbyful: He prefers gold for himself, and we were hoping to have matching bands. But I think you’re right, he could go with gold and I could go with white gold.
@anne B: There are also two-toned bands (i.e. yellow gold band with white gold claddagh). I suppose that could be a way of going half and half.

I do think that white gold would look better with your e-ring, but if you did a simple thin gold band it might look alright. Kate Middleton has a white gold e-ring and a yellow gold band.
I think the yellow gold claddagh one is too much though. Maybe you could wear that on your other hand? It’s nice but I think it would distract too much from your e-ring.

I like the idea of the two tone ring for you, it would tie in the e-ring but also have the yellow gold to match FI!

Sure! No one says you have to match your future husband’s band. If you are sentimental like that, have something engraved in both your bands. I love your ering by the way! So unique and lovely!

Thanks everyone! I think I’m probably going to go with the white gold and let Fiance get yellow gold. Then possible have something engraved on the insides of the rings.

Originally I wanted a rose gold wedding band but now Fi and I are leaning towards whitegold/platinum and rose gold. I really want our bands to match, at least partially and if that’s important to you go for it!
But I don’t think that the band has to match the engagement ring.
Here is what he likes most right now:
And here is what I like most:
They are different but cohesive/similar because they have the same metals and similar style although inverted.

I think if the band was thin it would be okay.. But you dont want a bold yellow gold band to overpower your e ring.

@accorn: Really like those bands!

What about a dual-tone ring like this?
Not sure if it would fit with your ering though… but you could look for a more delicate style than just a straight band so that it wouldn’t overpower your ering.

Duchess Kate Middleton’s e-ring is the white gold with sapphire and her wedding band is yellow gold. I think it’s very chic using both metals.
