You could add a plain band.

I think another ring like your wedding band would look lovely. You could also wear a diamond and sapphire band, but in between the wedding ring and the e-ring. (Just a thought) But IMO, matching your beautiful wedding band would look fantastic!

You could add almost any type of thick or thin, rounded or flat, plain or textured band in a matching or contrasting (rose gold or yellow gold) metal and place it between your wedding band and e-ring.

I would add a rose gold plain band between your w-band and e-ring

Hmm you could do just about anything! What about a shared prong eternity band? Slightly bigger…5 point stones?

What about some sort of colored stone band between your e-ring and wedding band.  I have seen some here that I just love and can’t wait to try!

Stacked Rings… as a “named” look is a fairly new thing

BUT gals have been doing this sort of thing for years… we just didn’t have a name for it

If you look around you’ll see older women wearing a multitude of “special” rings on their Wedding Ring Finger… or on other fingers nearby.

And if you know them and ask, you’ll discover that many of them are wearing in addition to Wedding Sets, Anniversary or Special Occasion Rings to mark other marriage milestones

I know this was true of my own Mother (marriage circa 1950), she wore her original wedding set (small & modest) along with a big sparkler trinity ring that my Dad gave her for their 25th Anniversary

I also know of GFs my age (over 50) who wear more Wedding Rings than their own.  Their own Wedding Finger maybe fitted out with whatever their Hubby have given them, but another finger may be the spot where they honour their parents by wearing their Late Mother’s Wedding Ring(s)

The idea that is is now stacked rings, really got its roots in the 1980s

As an Encore Bride, I remember when this trend got started… it was when Wedding Ring Manufacturers introduced “the third” band concept

A band that “matched” the wedding ring and was added to the other side of the ERing… in some Bridal Sets that meant that the band was “shaped” to tie-in with the ERing (in the same way that there are “linked” or “jacketed” WBands)

PHOTO – 1980 Ring… for the 3rd Ring it would be the same as the WBand, just fitted / worn on the opposite side (and usually the set would then be soldered together into one piece)

Girls back then would typically add their 3rd Band as an Anniversary Band (be it one matching their WBand… or a more blinged out one… this really was the start of the whole Diamond Anniversary Band trend)

OR perhaps, their Hubby would add the 3rd Band to their set following the birth of their first child

Lol, I had a 3 Ring set that was never completed… My Ex-Hubby just never got around to adding that third ring (and I was kind of sad about that)… altho he did buy me a nice ring after the birth of our first child that featured their birthstone

So there you have it…

Your third band could follow the traditional / sentimental route … by matching your current WBand, or be blinged up as an Anniversary Band… or incorpate Birthstones, be it to mark the birth of your first child… or a special Birthday / occasion for yourself.

Really there are no rules… you can add whatever catches your eye.  There certainly tons of nice choices.

— — —

Lol, I guess you could say I like the stacked look myself to some degree (and realize at my age I won’t be getting a 25th Anniversary Ring like my GFs have)… so I opted for 2 Wedding Bands when we were married.  One Blinged out and one Plain.  In this way, I can mix & match, and wear whatever I please how I please …

All on one finger as shown in the Photo below… or two on my Wedding Ring Finger, and one not at all, or on another finger (be that one of the Bands, or my ERing).  Endless possibilities.

My whole idea of going with 2 WBands was I would have a plain one to wear if I am doing something that might endanger my diamonds (home renovations / painting / deep cleaning / scuba diving etc).  BUT it would still be a “blesssed” WBand from our ceremony… so I am never without that IMPORTANT connection in my life.

Hope this info helps you in some way…

Perhaps you can add rose gold!! It’s soooooo pretty!! And I like a stack that’s kind of mismatched…different gold, different prongs, different texture, like milgrain, and no milgrain

Something I found online:

My stack of sterling silver wth cz 😉
