Love both the rings on their own, but think that perhaps the wb would take away from the unique band of your ering when work together. Would be good f you could try it on (or something similar) to get an idea of how they look together.

I’m usually a fan of mixed metals, but in this case, there’s just a lot going on with the e-ring and with that band IMO.

If, say, the band was also in white gold, the combo may look nice because the almond shapes of the band would play nicely with the almond-shaped twisty parts of the e-ring.

But throwing in the contrasting metals to the mix then makes it a bit too busy for me.

Having a more simple rose gold band with that e-ring would also be ok to me, because again, it’d be taking away that bit of “extra” that I find distracting.

future.mrs.gartland:  I worked in fine jewelry for a while. I think it’s very difficult to tell without both of them on your finger. The fit on your finger will affect the position of the rings, and your skintone will have an impact on what the metals look like together. I think if you have a darker complexion these two colors might look lovely together, and I could see the styles working well. There will definitely be a gap between your rings (I have one with mine but don’t mind), but you may want to try it on to be sure it doesn’t bug you. If you are fairer skinned, I would say having these two metal colors might not look great. With a darker complexion, each color will really pop, and look different but complementary. Rose gold on fair skin with a yellow undertone, can make it look a bit sallow. If you have pinkish undertones it might be better, but I could still see it looking a little out of place since it might look as though you’re trying to match it.

future.mrs.gartland:  to me the styles are too different.  I like non matching sets that compliment each other or play off each other. These two rings are too different, one is very sleek and modern  with the other being antique, looking from an entirely  different  Era in time.

future.mrs.gartland: I think they will be pretty but certainly mismatched. I would be very careful to choose a band that won’t overwhelm your pretty ering though, as you are planning to wear them together. Also be sure to consider the long-term costs of replacing pave set stones that may be lost. Some of the ladies here have found their pretty pave bands to not be particularly hard wearing.

I love your ering but I’m not sure this band would compliment it. Your ring is modern and the band is vintage style. I have a similar band, and I also mix metals. However my ering has a more simple design.

future.mrs.gartland:  I love that band! I just picked mine, and your band was similar to my second choice.

The only thing I don’t like with your engagement ring is there will be gaps between your rings. I would look for a band that has more of a curve to it. If you don’t mind the gap then it doesn’t matter. 🙂 Good luck.

I think a straight thin pave band in rose gold or white gold would compliment your ring much better. in this case i think a gap would look good and allow your ering to stand out. This band is from the same etsy shop as the band you posted above.

I am having trouble picturing those bands together. I think a straight band like the posted above may look Better.

I have that band and I mixed metals. My e-ring is different than yours but maybe this will help.
