Why not keep that as your wedding band and wear your engagement ring on your other hand? then, find a cheap, thinner band to wear when you want to wear it with your e-ring. It is a little thick for my taste, but doesn’t look bad.

The wedding band appears to be a fair amount looser than the diamond band, so even if they are the same thickness they won’t look it when on your finger.
Have you tried putting the ering on first and then the looser wedding band second so it sits on the fleshier part of your finger? Perhaps they will fit and look better together that way?

looks too tight together on your finger. I agree that something is off. It would bug me too.

I like it with the shiny on top!

To me the shininess is also a factor. The band overpowers the engagement ring a bit because it’s so solid and shiny, whereas the engagement ring is interesting by itself but not as chrome-looking as its partner.
I think going either thinner or brushing the metal to dull it a bit would bring the focus back to your bling.

I’m going to be honest, I don’t like the wedding band either and I agree it overwhelms your engagement ring. Since your e-ring is a band, I would just wear it by itself. I’m sure most people will think it’s a wedding band and get the message that you’re married.

i don’t think there’s anything wrong with them together, but the set does have a bit of a masculine feel to me. perhaps it’s because they’re both so sharp in their edges, it makes me think of a men’s ring?

I sometimes wear a band with a band and it will be just a slender little thing like either of these. Less bulk and very comfortable!

How about splitting your wedding band in half, and wearing those with your engagement ring in between. So you’ll have 2 feminine thin bands on either side of your engagement ring! Good luck!

It does look thicker but I actually really like that. I think they look great together.

I really like the band with a band look. So I think they look great together 🙂
i also think they look tight together so maybe get one sized up abit?
I think it could also be nice to wear one on hand, I love the symmetrical look 🙂

I think they look nice together but they look like they are too tight when you wear both so I would consider getting them resized.

Thanks everyone. After a good chat to make sure it wasn’t all in my head, my Fiance agrees the wedding ring overwhelms the engagement ring and isn’t the look we’re going for. So he’s got in touch with the jewellers and as its engraved we can’t return it, but they can slim it down to a medium rather than heavy profile. I’m going to go into a local jewelers to try on a *load* of rings to make sure that’s what I want and fingers crossed I’ll like how a thinner version looks!

I wanted to give an update of what I did with my wedding ring and hopefully help any bee out there who is going through the same worry about their ring not being quite right.
I went to the wonderful jewelry designer (who had created a placeholder ring for me whole I was waiting for the engagement ring to come in) and she was brilliant! She listened to my concerns, then took the ring and was able to carve facets onto it in the same style as my placeholder ring and I love it! Here’s a photo I took on honeymoon of the rings togther. I got to keep the ring we chose together in London with the matching engraving and it’s now a bespoke, one of a kind wedding ring! Yay!

Perfect solution! Your rings look great together and I love that faceted band! Very well done!
