My halo e-ring has a high enough setting that a wedding band could fit under the halo without leaving a gap. My fingers are small and I feel as though adding another ring will look like too much and will make the halo look off centre or less visible. If possible, could you show me your gap-free halo wedding sets so that I can get an idea of how halos look with another band?
I don’t have any pictures but my ring has a 1 ct Ring Bearer centre stone in a cushion halo setting with diamonds on the band. It’s a Gabriel and Co. Setting and there is a matching band that I can get to go with it. I just feel like the addition of the band will cause the halo to get lost in a bunch of pave diamonds.

Sure! I chose this particular setting because I wanted a straight band with no gaps, plus it has pretty metal work on the band. Mismatched wedding band is 3/4 eternity. I think a 1ct center would hold it’s own.
The center would stand out even more if I went thinner on the bands. The e-ring band is 3mm and then tapers, the wedding band is 2.5mm. I usually like quite thin bands, but I dunno, I just loved this!
0.5 carat center, the whole thing is around 1.5. Finger size 6.25.

bw04: Mine is also Gabriel & Co.! I got the matching band. Pics aren’t awesome, just snapped a few when I picked it up but hope it gives you an idea!

I don’t have any pics with it on on this computer but here’s one from the wedding. There’s no gap on.

- Wedding: March 2014 - A castle
Kinda blurry, but you can see how the bands sit flush
I don’t feel like the halos get lost with my 2 bands. I think the 2 bands helps to balance the look of my double halos. My center is also 1 ct eq (moissanite though)

I have a plain band, cushion halo with a pave diamond wedding band. I like the contrast between the plain band of my e-ring and the pave diamonds on the wedding band. You should try on a plain wedding band to see if that helps separate the two visually for you. Also try on the diamond band; you may really like the look of it togther. I tried on dozens of wedding bands before deciding on one.

bw04: Your ring sounds gorgeous! Mine is a bit different as it has the split shank, but I have a matching slightly curved wedding band that sits right against it (slightly underneath the halo) and I love it. I actually have fairly little fingers too but love the extra bling, even though I usually wear quite simple jewellery etc.
I don’t think adding a band of any kind (whether it be pave or plain) will make a halo look off-balanced. Once it’s on it always just seems to look right!
Hope you have fun picking yours out and I’m sure whatever you go with will be amazing.

I’ve tried my ring with one of two different bands (the smaller is the actual wedding band) or both at the same time. Both is too much for me and I decided I wouldn’t wear it that way, but I do like my ring with one band.
I intentionally chose both bands to not actually match my halo because it helps separate the two. The stones in my wedding band are noticeably larger than in the halo, and the other eternity band is an entirely different style.

Havent purchased my band yet, but i found a plain one I like that sits under the halo. I originally wanted diamonds, but found that diamond-on-diamond action is not good. I like the look of the plain band contrasting though. Opinions?

shawna.darling4: Love your set! It is the reverse of mine, and I really like the contrast between a plain and diamond band.
